Charlemagne was the King of the Franks from 768 to 814 and emporer of the Romans from 800 to 814.  His empire included what is now France, Germany, Italy, and all points in between.  He is credited with uniting the culture of Europe through both faith and education.

William I, the Conqueror, was the first Norman King of England. He became the Duke of Normandy at age eight.  William defeated Harold, King of England, at the Battle of Hastings.  His greatest monument is Domesday Book, an exhaustive survey of  the land , the principal landholders, the farm population, and the material and financial resources of his realm.
