Terra X - Rätsel alter Weltkulturen (TV Series)
Charlemagne, king of the Francs ruling from Aachern (Aix-la-chapelle), managed to reunite the northwestern part of the former Roman empire and was crowned the first German emperor in 800 by the pope. Still, medieval feudalism was largely fragmented, with local noble knights warring and princes dividing and disputing power with popes and clergy. The Ommayad first caliphate dynasty of Islam preserved and refined the Ancient culture and brought them back into conquered, tolerantly ruled Moorish Iberia. Yet the crusades, aggressive Christian wars, would fail politically but re-civilize the Catholic west. Venice rose the commercial prominence and riches, its son Marco Polo brought knowledge of the Mongol-ruled Far East and central Asia.- Written by KGF Vissers
