Matt Candler 4-14-11 H113 Dr . O’Connor Charlemagne Paper After reading, “Two Lives of Charlemagne”, written by Einhard and Notker The Stammerer, I’ve come to the conclusion that Charlemagne is worthy of the title, “Father of Europe”, and these two different interpretations of the acknowledgement of his life’s successes have peaked my interests . Einhard, who was a close friend to him, told one perspective of the life of the King Charlemagne . Due to the fact that he was a companion of the king, it is noticeable that there is some friend bias that may have distorted some of the truth of the man that was Charlemagne . Also, Einhard wrote his piece soon after the death of Charlemagne, which could impact the content of his work . There could have been a sense of strong passion, because Einhard was most likely mourning his loss . The other interpretation of the life of the King Charlemagne was Notker, who was a monk who didn’t have a direct relationship with him .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
