Best Answer

Charlemagne was born in the Kingdom of the Franks, which was mostly in what are now parts of France and Germany. He was crowned king, and extended his kingdom greatly, adding others to it, including Saxony, the Kingdom of Lombardy, and an area called the Spanish March, in northern Spain. In the end, he ruled nearly all of modern France, Germany, and Austria, all of Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg, the northern half of Italy and parts of other countries. After he died, his empire was divided, and important parts became the Kingdom of France, and the Holy Roman Empire (Germany).
