Describes the achievements of Charlemagne and the establishment of the Holy Roman Empire. The episode tells how warring European tribes dominated 5th-century Europe until Pippin and his son, Charlemagne, became protector of the Papal States. Students learn about the social structure of peasants, knights, kings, and clergy in a typical feudal system, and how Charlemagne’s quest for knowledge resulted in the establishment of universities and the protection of the world’s knowledge by monks as the European world again descended into chaos after his death.
