Publisher's summary

If you want to discover the captivating history of the Holy Roman Empire, then pay attention...

Two captivating manuscripts in one audiobook:

  • The Holy Roman Empire: A Captivating Guide to the Union of Smaller Kingdoms That Started During the Early Middle Ages and Dissolved During the Napoleonic Wars
  • The Carolingian Empire: A Captivating Guide to the Carolingian Dynasty and Their Large Empire That Covered Most of Western Europe During the Reign of Charlemagne

Throughout the story of the Holy Roman Empire, a wealth of fascinating tales from interesting people proliferates. Monks and emperors will clash, poets sing the praises of kings, and the pope rides blind and bareback on a frightened donkey through the streets of Rome. The mightiest monarch in all of the world walks barefoot in the snow in repentance for his angry deeds, and two rival families stand toe-to-toe for the monarchy. Crusades are lost in war and won in diplomacy, while kings are held ransom, revolts are suppressed, and antipopes crowned.

Some of the topics covered in part one of this audiobook include:

  • The First Roman Empire
  • The Carolingians
  • A Formal Emperor
  • The Dissolution
  • And much, much more!

Some of the topics covered in part two of this audiobook include:

  • A Quick Overview
  • The World After Rome
  • Ending a Dynasty - Pepin, Charles, and Carloman
  • The Conquests of Charles
  • In the Name of Religion
  • The Division Effectively Ending the Empire
  • Echoes of the Roman Empire - How Outside Forces Picked Apart the Carolingian Empire
  • Lasting Effects and Hope of Reunification
  • And much, much more!
