Charlemagne is often claimed as the greatest ruler in Europe before Napoleon. This magisterial study re-examines Charlemagne the ruler and his reputation. It analyses the narrative representations of Charlemagne produced after his death, and thereafter focuses on the evidence from Charlemagne's lifetime concerning the creation of the Carolingian dynasty and the growth of the kingdom, the court and the royal household, communications and identities in the Frankish realm in the context of government, and Charlemagne's religious and cultural strategies. The book offers a critical examination of the contemporary sources and in so doing transforms our understanding of the development of the Carolingian empire, the formation of Carolingian political identity, and the astonishing changes effected throughout Charlemagne's forty-six year period of rule. This is a major contribution to Carolingian history which will be essential reading for anyone interested in the medieval past. Rosamond McKitterick has also received the 2010 Dr A. H. Heineken Prize for History for her research into the Carolingians.

This is a new account of the most important period in the history of Europe between the end of the Roman Empire and the Italian Renaissance. The reign of Charlemagne (768-814) saw the unification of many areas of France, Italy and Germany, Spain and central Europe, as well as the revival of the title 'Emperor in the West.' At the same time, the cultural and artistic revival that took place in western Europe under Charlemagne's rule both led to the preservation of much of the intellectual heritage of Antiquity and inspired succeeding generations of scholars and artists up to the time of the Renaissance. While the empire that Charlemagne created proved short-lived, the title 'Holy Roman Emperor' remained in continuous use until 1806, and his achievements have inspired a succession of both military conquerors and would-be unifiers of Europe up to the present day. Numerous ideas and institutions were revived or created in this period which would serve to shape the future development of western Europe throughout the Middle Ages and beyond.

„Je suis Charlemagne“ - ich bin Karl der Große - soll Napoleon, noch ganz unter dem Eindruck seiner Pilgerreise nach Aachen im Jahr 1804, dem Papst mitgeteilt haben. Karl, den seine Zeitgenossen als den „Leuchtturm“ und „Vater Europas“ bezeichneten, galt noch über tausend Jahre nach seinem Tod als die Leitfigur der europäischen Monarchie. Es war ein Reich ungeheuerlichen Ausmaßes, das er am Ende seines Lebens nicht nur erobert, sondern auch neu gestaltet hatte: Es reichte vom heutigen Frankreich über Deutschland und Österreich bis an die Grenzen Polens, Tschechiens und der Slowakei, hinunter bis nach Ungarn und Kroatien. Nordspanien und Italien gehörten dazu, ebenso Belgien, die Niederlande und die Schweiz. Wer war dieser Herrscher, den so viele Mythen umranken, wirklich?
