Charlemagne: Europe’s King Arthur?

The Last Time France and Germany were United

The European Union (created by the Treaty of Rome in 1957) is not a new concept. Charlemagne got there first. But he achieved the union through timely alliances, actual battles, and some very astute thinking. (And he had a little help from the Pope of his day.) In bringing about this unity in Europe, he heralded in a prosperous and educated time, during the so-called “Dark Ages”. His shining enlightenment has not been dimmed by the passage of time, nor by the conflicts since his death.

For example, did you know that the English currency of pounds, shillings and pence was his creation? Surprising, that.

He had Twelve Knights

In one of my past lives, I may have been Roland. This means that I had the pleasure of serving Charlemagne. It may also be why my Midheaven is situated @ 13° Libra, which represents the crowning of Charles I of the Franks in 768 AD. My past life ‘job’ started then. I would have been one of his 12 paladins.

The ‘Once and Future King’

This title could easily be given to Charlemagne. His Frankish Kingdom has been recently resurrected (as the EU) and continues to be an influence in world affairs. He would have been so proud.
