Book Description :

Einhard's Two Lives of Charlemagne is an absorbing chronicle of one of the most powerful and dynamic of all medieval rulers, written by a close friend and adviser. In elegant prose it describes Charlemagne's personal life, details his achievements in reviving learning and the arts, recounts his military successes and depicts one of the defining moments in European history- Charlemagne's coronation as emperor in Rome on Christmas Day 800AD. By contrast, Notker's account, written some decades after Charlemagne's death, is a collection of anecdotes rather than a presentation of historical facts.

Book Description :

This splendid edition contains both ancient biographies of Charles the Great by Einhard and the Monk of St. Gall, edited, translated and introduced by Arthur James Grant. Charlemagne is often termed the father of modern Europe, in that he implemented the earliest foundations of Germany, France, Holland and Belgium. Demonstrating great talents in both war and peace, Charles the Great was able to unite much of Europe to an extent unseen since the time of the Roman Empire. Although Charlemagne only reigned for fourteen years, his actions while on the Frankish throne were of far-ranging consequence. His wars against the Saxons, his expedition into Muslim Spain, and his strengthening of relations with the Papacy of Rome helped solidify Christianity within the European continent. Although his reign was violent, it ushered in civilization to Europe via unification of its peoples.

Book Description :

This work contains two separate biographical accounts of Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, the man considered to be the father of Europe. One account was penned by the French, medieval biographer, Eginhard, who in 791 joined the royal court to serve as an epic poet, grammarian, mathematician, architect, and ultimately a confidante to the King. Eginhard's work is believed to be the most accurate portrayal of Charlemagne, and perhaps more importantly, as the finest biography of its time. This edition also contains the highly anecdotal "life" of Charlemagne, penned by the Monk of Saint Gall, who is now commonly believed to be Notker the Stammerer. This monk, a native-German speaker, wrote the volume at the request of Charles the Fat, great-grandson of Charlemagne. Although its accuracy has been scorned by historians, several of the monk's amusing and witty tales have been revived in modern biographies of this powerful monarch. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

Book Description :

Charlemagne's impact on Europe -- on the world -- cannot be underestimated. He brought together diverse cultures in his empire, supported scholarship, and established the power of the Christian church. In Early Lives of Charlemagne, we receive two views of the emperor within a century of his death. According to translator and editor A.J. Grant, the differences are instructive. In the treatment by Eginhard, who was Charlemagne's personal secretary, we read a "restrained, positive, well-arranged narrative" that "distorts the facts of history wonderfully little." In contrast, the Monk of Saint Gall's version was written about seventy years after the emperor's death, when "the mist of legend and myth steamed up rapidly from the grave of a well-known figure." Taken together, these essays provide information not only about Charles the Great, but also about the task of writing history and biography.

Demonstrating great talents in both war and peace, Charles the Great was able to unite much of Europe to an extent unseen since the time of the Roman Empire.

His wars against the Saxons, his expedition into Muslim Spain, and his strengthening of relations with the Papacy of Rome helped solidify Christianity within the European continent. Although his reign was violent, it ushered in civilization to Europe via unification of its peoples. Both of the biographies are authored by men who lived and witnessed the sweeping reforms by Charlemagne. As such, they offer an insight unparalleled into the life, politics and atmosphere of the early Middle Ages and the personality of Charles. In the modern day, they act as a frequent point of reference for historians and interested readers alike. This translation of the great king's biographies includes many notes which together explain the various references and peculiar turns of phrase common to authors of antiquity. Both of the biographies date to the 9th century AD, and as such are replete with allusions to the prominent figures and events of the era. Also included within this edition are photographic illustrations of art and artifacts associated with Charlemagne.
