Post Curious about Charlemagne


I just learned about Charlemagne, and i couldn't help but notice that he always went to Aachen, and according to my resaearch found out it was his capital. Why did he chose this as his capital? Is it because of some reason of his relationship between him and the church of rome? i heard that this relatioinship was part of the pope as well and kept on changing, what was the history of this???

Any help would be Greatly Appreciated... thanks

Re: Curious about Charlemagne


I think that both Pope and Emperor were "legitimated" in peoples' eyes by having the Pope crown the Emperor.

Re: Curious about Charlemagne


Aachen was favoured due to the minreal springs in which Charlemagne took great delight in. Swimming was one of his favoured pasttimes. Again, this is mentioned in Einhard.
