Historians typically regard the Early Middle Ages or Early Medieval Period, sometimes referred to as the Dark Ages, as lasting from the 5th or 6th century to the 10th century CE. They marked the start of the Middle Ages of European history.
Charlemagne was the King of the Franks and the Holy Roman Emperor. He was born on April 2, 742. Nobody knows where he was born. Some of the history buffs say that it could have been in Liege, Belgium or even Aachen in modern-day Germany. Interesting Facts about Charlemagne. His father became king because all the rulers wouldn’t stop killing each other! What a strange way to become king. He was one serious fighter that you wouldn’t want to get into battle with that’s for sure. When he conquered territories he would very kindly allow them to still rule and also even allow their cultures and laws to be the same.
Charlemagne's ancestors were great men, major nobles of the region of Austrasia - again, eastern France, western Germany, the Low Countries. They were nominal servants of the Merovingian rulers and rose to prominence with a title of maior. And Wickham preserves just the Latin, maior - major, larger, great man. The maior of the palace - "the mayor of the palace" is how this is usually translated. And of course, our word mayor applies to a municipal official. So mayor of the palace is a rather funny title
The Early Middle Ages are also sometimes referred to as Late Antiquity. This time period is usually viewed as beginning in the third century and stretching to the seventh century, and sometimes as late as the eighth. Some scholars see Late Antiquity as distinct and separate from both the Ancient world and the Medieval one; others see it as a bridge between the two where significant factors from both eras overlap. Usually beginning with the 11th century, some scholars end it in 1300 and others extend it for as much as another 150 years. Even limiting it to a mere 300 years, the High Middle Ages saw such significant events as Norman conquests in Britain and Sicily, the earlier Crusades, the Investiture Controversy and the signing of the Magna Carta.
During the early Middle Ages there were few strong rulers in Europe. Most rulers had control over very small pieces of land. Even the power of the Pope was not very strong in places far from Rome. Charlemagne (742-814) was the most famous ruler of the Middle Ages. He conquered much of Western Europe and united it under a great empire. In times of trouble, people usually sought out their strongest neighbour and took refuge in his wooden blockhouse or stone castle. Because money was scarce, nobles were willing to take land as payment for services. the former owner could use the land during his/ her lifetime but gave it over to the noble at the time of death.
