"Of all the barbarian peoples of the continent of Europe who infiltrated or attacked the Roman Empire of the West, only the Franks succeeded in establishing a political power that survived the final disintegration of the Empire, and eventually supplanted it. The centuries between the decline of the Western Roman Empire and the creation of Charlemagne's new empire in the West in the late eighth century have long been called "Dark Ages", and yet during these "Dark Ages" a Frankish culture emerged which was to lead directly to the Carolingian Empire." – From the rear panel blurb.
