“Europe is a very diverse place. You have a lot of different languages and legal traditions. What you see is Charlemagne taking a very diverse empire and forging a new aristocracy, in lots of ways, through legislation, assemblies, standardizing Christianity, but also by giving them the hunting culture. A Bavarian can look an Acquitanian in the eye and see a Frank there, because they are all part of the same culture.” Erik J. Goldberg
