Re: Napoleon and the unification of Germany - Ital

Hans-Karl,

As Charlemagne was born in either Liege or Aachen (Aix-la-Chapelle if you prefer) he wasn't born in Franconia unless I am mistaken. He was born in the Rhineland or in modern Belgium. He was a Frank, which doesn't translate into a modern Franconian, just as a modern Italian doesn't translate into an ancient Roman.

Sincerely,
Kevin
