Charles the Great
By Nicholas Polimeni
Charlemagne's Rule (768-814)
Being a great support of Christianity, Charles promised to protect Rome and the churches and gave money to their cause. Christianity wasn't the only thing Charles tried to spread through his vast empire. He promoted education, language, art, and culture, starting a period known as Carolingian Renaissance.
