"King Charlemagne, who was a catholic, wants every single girl and boy in his realm to become a scholar and then something else, and go to school. He accomplished many things like building bridges, making plans for a canal and new churches. Charlemagne can consider being crowned Emperor because the former one had been deposed by his mother, who couldn't legally sit on the throne. He serve Pope Leo III, and is crowned Emperor, making Carl, who is his son, King of the Franks. Carl is not the king's eldest son, that would be Gobbo. His brother Lewis is King of Aquitaine."
