A map illustrating the rise and expansion by conquest of the Frankish Carolingian ("descendants of Charles") dynasty during the rule of the son of Peppin the Short and grandson of Charles Martel, Charlemagne (768 - 814 CE). Under Charlemagne (also called Charles the Great), the empire covered part of Spain, virtually all present-day France, Germany to the River Elbe, and much of Italy. This vast territory was governed by a complex administrative system in which both lay and ecclesiastical officials played a crucial role.
