King

King is the title given to a male monarch in a variety of contexts. The female equivalent is queen,[1] which title is also given to the consort of a king.

Charlemagne or Charles the Great (748–814) was King of the Franks, King of the Lombards, and the first Holy Roman Emperor. Due to his military accomplishments and conquests, he has been called the "Father of Europe".
