Charlemagne Picture Gallery

A collection of portraits, statues, and other images related to Charlemagne


No contemporary illustrations of Charlemagne exist, but a description provided by his friend and biographer Einhard has inspired numerous portraits and statues. This gallery includes works by famous artists such as Raphael Sanzio and Albrecht Dürer, statues in cities whose histories are firmly tied to Charlemagne, depictions of important events in his reign, and a look at his signature.

Do you have a portrait of Charlemagne or other images related to the Frankish king that you'd like to share at the Medieval History site? Please contact me with the details.
