We’ll talk about one of the major Germanic tribes today…The Franks. We will take a closer look at the two Frankish Kingdoms of Merovingians and Carolingians and compare their similarities.
Some other important people you’ll meet are Clovis I and Charles Martel. If it wasn’t for these two guys, our world might look rather different.
Charles Martel was in command of the Frankish troops during the Battle of Tours. This proves to be one of the more important battles of history.
