CHARLEMAGNE: - The Carolingians are from the bastard child of the Merovingians by the name of Charles the Hammer Martel. Pepin started them off and Charlemagne is the most interesting one in this Holy Roman Empire. His purchase or reward to Alcuin for finding the scroll of Jasher and his possession of the Spear used to pierce the side of Jesus are interesting things to explore. Hopefully I will not need to comment upon the obvious bias in the following account but these things that pass for history are interesting.
