How many wives did Charlemagne have?

Charlemagne had 4 wives and 18 children.Depending on how you count, the answer could be four, five or ten. Officially, Charles the Great (Charlemagne) was a Christian under the authority of the Pope, and he was therefore allowed only one wife at a time. Unofficially, he kept to pagan habits that allowed him extra women.His first known companion was Himiltrude, who is described as a Friedelfrau. This was probably something like a morganatic wife, i.e. of higher status than a concubine because he could not have another wife while he had her, but she still did not have the full rights of an official wife. Himiltrude bore Charlemagne two children, but he put her aside in order to marry Desiderata.His four official wives were:1. Desiderata of Lombardy. This marriage was annulled after only a year.2. Hildegard of Vinzgouw. She died after twelve years, having borne him nine children.3. Fastrada, who died after ten years. She bore him two children.4. Ludgarda, who also died in his lifetime. She was childless.His five known concubines were:1. Gerswinda, who had one child.2. Madelgard, who had one child.3. Amaltrud of Vienne, who had one child.4. Regina, who had two children.5. Ethelinda, who had two children.There may have been other concubines, but probably none who had children.

How long did the Anglo saxons live for?

They've never left. They arrived in the 5th century and became part of the "English" in the 9th/10th century. The period of their rule came to an end with the Norman invasion of 1066 but like much of the nations mongrel history they just merged becoming Anglo-Norman. While the ruling class was Norman and then Anglo Norman the underlying people were considered mostly descended from Anglo Saxon (although Jutes, Norse and Celts are all mixed in there as well) and the term has stayed with England. As you can see from the above, we're just a crazy mixed-up, yet fantastic nation!

Were the Saxons in the medieval times?

Yes. There were different areas of the Middle Ages called Saxony. The Saxons were a group of people who lived in northern German in the Middle Ages. They occupied a large part of northern Germany, and were very warlike. They fought against Charlemagne for years, until he subdued them and forced them to become Christians. Some of the Saxons had already migrated to Britain before this time, and were part of the ruling culture of England. In the 10th century, duchies were granted in the Holy Roman Empire for Saxony. These included lands of the Saxons, but also other lands in central Germany which had dukes of Saxon descent. So Saxony of modern Germany is rather far from the northern German coastal areas where the Saxons originated.
