Before this Roman Empire ruled much of Europe
But they fell in 476 to Germanic tribes that invaded, ok Dark Ages
Loss of art, history, culture, no government to record it
Barbaric kingdoms rule and then convert the people to Catholic

Clovis, now King of Franks, the former province of Gaul
Franks defeat the Muslims in the Battle of Tours
Charlemagne, King of Franks, crowned Holy Roman Emperor
With plans to spread Christian faith through land he conquered

Bringing Western Europe together, reuniting
A new environment to explore arts and learning

And northern Europe is invaded by the Vikings
Defeated by Alfred the Great

A hierarchy of people trading their service for land
King to Baron to Lord to the Noblemen on to the Peasants

Agriculture flourished, castles built, increasing trading

Made himself king after defeating the Anglo-Saxons
Created a stable kingdom, strong central government

They have him sign a document called the Magna Carta
This gives rights to the people, no king is above this law

When Edward the third of England declared war on France
Soon after that Black Death disease begins to spread
Fatal disease killing many people in Europe

And executed at nineteen

No central government to take control
The Catholic Church more control they obtained it
