Storyboard Text

  • During the earlier times of his rule he was a pagan
  • Clovis was chosen  be a tribe's ruler and people thought that he was a very cruel and self absorbed person
  • Since I was losing a lot  of battles, I decided to take my wife's advice and pray to god.
  • I convinced Clovis to convert to Christianity and pray to god.
  • Now I have gained the support from the Pope and this has unified my kingdom!
  • Since I started winning battles after praying to the Christian God, I decided to convert to Christianity officially. 
  • My goal is to covert everybody thats Germanic to Christianity. I may be cruel and brutal, but people see me as a great ruler.
  • I, Charlemagne believe in Christianity and is the ruler of the Franks.
  • He was brutal to us, once, after a Saxon revolt, he rounded us up and he had us beheaded. He doubled the size of his kingdom and became the most powerful ruler since the Roman Empire.
  • I crowned Charlemagne, the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, he was annoyed with me!  He thought I gave him his power, he thought that god should give him the power to rule divine right. This lead to many conflicts.
  • Most of the Frankish people couldn't read or write. I decided to make my palace a center for learning.
  • This was to train children on royal officials to work in the church or palace and were taught grammar, logic, and mathematics.
