The Franks were the civilization that restored peace throughout the Europe region after the fall of the Roman Empire because of their strong political leaders and their major expansion throughout history.
Charlemagne, the king of the Carolingian Dynasty quotes, “Right action is better than knowledge; but in order to do what is right, we must know what is right.”
The Franks political system controlled the largest and strongest of Europe's kingdoms. From 751-987 the Carolingian Dynasty began, the Carolingian Dynasty was a family that would control the Frankish territory. Charlemagne was considered the greatest of the leaders in the Dynasty. Charlemagne was crowned emperor by Pope Leo III in Italy. Charlemagne's secretary Enhard quotes, "Charlemagne was the most potent prince with the greatest skill and success in different countries during the forty-seven years of his reign. Great and powerful as was the realm of Franks, Karl [Charlemagne] received from his father Pippin, he nevertheless so splendidly enlarged it... that he almost doubled it."
Charlemagne's kingdom was a huge reason why Europe was pulled out of the dark ages because he tried to unite all the people of Europe as one group, in which he conquered many lands to do this.
