Mohammed would jolt Arabs out of isolation and form Islam, one of the most present religions in even todays time. He was born in Mecca and we hear he lost both his mother and his father during his infancy. When he was a young boy he apparently joined the caravan trade which exposed him to new cultures, people, and beliefs. When he was 20, he married his employer who was a widow by the name of Khadijah
This marriage would bring him status, wealth, leisure time but in 622 A.D. Mohammed's revelations on Mt. Hira occurred. He saw an angel here who informed him of him being Allah's profit and this set Mohammed's new mission in life.
The pillars of Islam that became established were: The creed ( there is one god Allah, Mohammed is his profit), Prayer which occurred 5 times a day, fasting or Ramadan, Alms-giving, and pilgrimage to the Mecca.
The prohibitions of the Islamic faith include: No pork, alcohol, artists cannot sculpt figures of man or animals as it could represent an idol, and wealthy men had a limit to only 4 wives.
He had a very long reign
He was a great warrior who waged war against the: Saxons, Slavs, Lombards, Mostems
He ended up ruling most of western Europe and was a successful administrator
king of the Franks, king of the Lombards, and first emperor of the Romans and of what was later called the Holy Roman Empire. Around the time of the birth of Charlemagne—conventionally held to be 742 but likely to be 747 or 748—his father, Pippin III (the Short), was mayor of the palace, an official serving the Merovingian king but actually wielding effective power over the extensive Frankish kingdom.
Charlemagne kept Dukes and duchies of the time in control and was high on learning. Einhard, our best source here, tells us he could speak Latina and was learning Greek
He got his coronation in 800 A.D when he was summoned to render aid to the pope who then crowned him making him king/emperor of the Romans. He would go on to now become the most powerful leader in Western Europe at that time. Scholars regard the year of his coronation as the Holy year and he died in 814.
