Charlemagne

Charlemagne (/ˈʃɑːrlɪmn/) or Charles the Great (2 April 742 – 28 January 814), numbered Charles I, was King of the Franks from 768, King of the Lombards from 774 and Emperor of the Romans from 800. He united much of Europe during the early Middle Ages. He was the first recognised emperor in western Europe since the fall of the Western Roman Empire three centuries earlier. The expanded Frankish state that Charlemagne founded is called the Carolingian Empire.

Charlemagne was a great proponent of education. Though he may have been illiterate much of his life, he had people read to him - even while he ate.
