  • 2. Yes! Oh wait, oh..
  • 1. I would like you, sons, to know I'm at old age and will be having to pass on the realm. You shall take over the empire and hope for coorporation.
  • 3. We understand, so just two of us?
  • 2. I shall agree. However this is just unfair. I don't think there's a need to have to both of us be King.
  • 4. Wow.
  • 3. You're right, let's fight!
  • 1. I guess it's the two of us after all.
  • 1. Do you know what to do? Prepare and let's get those Saxons to convert to Christianity and increase in my territory power!
  • Charlemagne was one of the great leaders of the Middle Ages. He was the king of the Franks and later became the Holy Roman Empire. His father, Pepin the Short, was the ruler of Carolingian Empire. He was at his old age as he was discussing the realm to his two sons, Carloman and Charlemagne.
  • 3. You really want to go there?
  • 1. Listen, we'll break into your territory if you folks don't convert to Christianity.
  • 2. Or else, what?
  • Pepin the Short has died a few weeks later. It's only up to the two brothers to decide how the empire should be run.
  • 3. The other two knights just left for that.
  • 2. Oh, well, uh... are you going to break into our territory?
  • 4. WHAT!?
  • Due to the unexpected death of Carloman in 771, Charlemagne was put under the leadership of King, and because of this has all the power to handle. He got several Frankish military guards to help build a stronger territory by forcing the Saxons to convert to Christianity. He discussed his plan and had them prepared.
  • That was my early life!
  • Charlemagne meets the Saxons and forces them to convert to Christianity, along with the knights. Certainly, the Saxons seem confident- well they wouldn't have any choice later on...
  • Charlemagne puts direct pressure on one of the Saxons as he is later forced to convert due to the invasion of their territory.
  • That's the finishing to the little glimpse of Charlemagne's early life!
