Carolingian Renaissance

 Q:   Ask a Question about Carolingian Renaissance       
The Carolingian Renaissance of learning began when he persuaded the Northumbrian scholar Alcuin to enter his service 781.

Charlemagne gathered a kind of academy around him. Although he never learned to read, he collected the old heroic sagas, began a Frankish grammar, and promoted religious instruction in the vernacular.

He died 28 Jan 814 in Aachen, where he was buried. Soon a cycle of heroic legends and romances developed around him, including epics by Ariosto, Boiardo, and Tasso.
