Charlemagne was a different kind of conquester. With all the Saxons he took prisoner, he didn’t kill or torture them. He baptized them all in a river. Though most of them just turned back to whatever religion they were before, a few were really converted into Christians. One Christmas, he was attending church in Rome when Leo III pronounced him Emperor. Charlemagne was a great emperor, and built many churches and buildings for the people.
