Charles the Great passed away early this morning at the age of seventy-two the cause was believed to be pleurisy He has accomplished much in his forty-six year reign and I think it would be appropriate to take some time and reflect upon his great deedsHe started out sharing the kingdom of his father with his brother Carloman but within two years Carloman had fallen ill and died leaving the remaining land to Charles He amassed a huge empire after defeating groups such as the Lombards Bretons Bavarians Slavs Huns Danes and fought the Saxons up through the time of his death He doubled the territory of our lands with the accumulation of all his campaigns Added to this glory he had gained the good will of several kings and nations These relations were spread to such powerful nations as the Persians Scots and the Emperors of Constantinople Barring his wars the Emperor Charlemagne was the most able governor Europe has seen since Theodoric the Goth The sixty-five capitularies that remain of Charlemagnes legislation are among the most interesting bodies of medieval law In some particulars they are less enlightened than the laws of King Liutprand of Lombardy they kept the old wergild ordeals trial by combat and punishment by mutilation and decreed death for relapse into paganism or for eating meat in Lent- though here the priest was allowed to soften the penalty Charlemagne legislated for agriculture industry finance education and religion as well as for government and morals His most important accomplishment of all took place a mere fourteen years ago when Pope Leo III placed the imperial crown upon Charlemagnes head Christmas Day in the year 800 He was to be the first Emperor of Rome after its original fall No day ever came close to that except the day last year when he crowned his sole heir Louis as Emperor who is our current and very able Emperor Many omens
