The year is 781 A.D. King Charles of the Franks is crossing the Alps with his family and court on a journey to meet with Pope Hadrian. One frosty night he speaks to his young son Carl of his plans for the future: "When we come to Rome you will know that I am naming you my heir. One day you will rule over all my lands..." But the King already had an heir, Pepin the Hunchback, mockingly called Gobbo. Was he to be dispossessed? Yet Carl sees that Charlemagne is determined to do what he feels is best to serve God and Europe. The many-faceted story of the great Emperor Charlemagne and his son Carl will stir the minds and imaginations of young people. Through Carl's eyes we discover the grand dimensions of western Europe's foundation.

"This book presents history in a readable, enjoyable and memorable format. I use it whenever my family studies the Middle Ages."
- Laura M. Berquist

Ages 10 and up
