Storyboard Text

  • I believe I might convert...
  • Clovis, after succeeding in battle, converts to Christianity. He was the first Frankish king to accept Christianity, but he was definitely not the only Frankish king with connections to Christianity.
  • Charles Martel, also known as "The Hammer," leads his soldiers into battle against the Arab Berbers, stopping the spread of Islam. He used excellent strategy in the location and the actual fighting.
  • The son of Charles Martel, Pepin the Short, had no real ties to the throne, but he was anointed by the Pope to become the king of the Frankish kingdom.
  • Charlemagne forced people to convert to Christianity using violence and threats. Those who didn't convert from their pagan religion were executed.
  • Roland was Charlemagne's nephew and a hero of the time. He led an attack against the Basques of Spain, and an epic poem was written about him titled "The Song of Roland."
  • Louis the Pious was devoted to his religion of Christianity. At one point, he divided his kingdom between his three sons, weakening it.
