    How was a king chosen?

In a series of battles, he earns wealth and honor for his men and his king, as well as fame and admiration for himself. Francisco Bethencourt, Racisms: From the Crusades to the Twentieth Century Demonstrating that there is not one continuous tradition of racism, Francisco Bethencourt shows that racism preceded any theories of race and must be viewed within the prism and context of social hierarchies and local conditions. In countries such as France, where the legal system was based on that of ancient Rome, kings were considered the source of all law -- its maker as well as defender -- and were not bound by the law like ordinary mortals.

Charles, more often known as Charles the Great or Charlemagneembarked upon a programme of systematic expansion in that unified a large portion of Europe, eventually controlling modern-day France, northern Italy, and Saxony. If the wound had clearly not got any better, you were guilty.

    Such was demonstrated by Charlemagne, or Charles the Great, the king of France from the yeartill he died inand was widely regarded as The Father of Europe. Bethencourt argues that in its various aspects, all racism has been triggered by political projects monopolizing specific economic and social resources. The general public would not mind such a sacrifice, as it is for the greater good, and a good king will do anything for his country, to ensure that everything and everyone manages to survive. However, such violent punishments clearly did not put off people. Louis's reign of 26 years was marked by numerous divisions of the empire among his sons and, aftercivil wars between various alliances of father and sons over the control of various parts of the empire.
