Facts about the Saxons
The Saxons long avoided becoming Christians and being incorporated into the orbit of the Frankish kingdom, but were decisively and brutally conquered by Charlemagne in a long series of annual campaigns (772-804). With defeat came the forced baptism and conversion of the Saxon leaders and their people to Christianity.
A large contingent of Saxons, Angles, Jutes and Frisians invaded and colonized Britain in the early Middle Ages, giving their names to the kingdoms of Essex, Sussex and Wessex,which with the shorter-lived Middlesex, eventually became part of the kingdom of England.
