Summary Between the Fall of Rome and the dawn of the Renaissance, Europe plunged into a dark night of constant war, splintered sovereignties, marauding pagans, and more. As chaos replaced culture, Europe was beset by famine, plague, persecutions, and a state of war that was so persistent it was only rarely interrupted by peace. From warlords whose armies threatened to cause the demise of European society, such as Alaric, Charles the Hammer, and Clovis; to the people who valiantyly tended the flames of justice, knowledge, and innovation including Charlemagne, St. Benedict, Empress Theodora, and other brave souls who fought for peace and enlightenment.
Subject Alaric I, King of the Visigoths, -410.
Clovis, King of the Franks, approximately 466-511.
