Charlemagne | Holy Roman Emperor

I have a strong memory of visiting the spa town of Aachen with my girlfriend in the early 90''s and visiting Charlemagne's resting place in Aachen Cathedral. I was struck by how important this part of history was and yet how little I knew. Still, we have the internet now and swotting up on empire's history and piecing it all together isn't just rewarding, it's fun too.
