  • Julius Caesar vs. Charlemagne (Round 1)

    Here are some facts for each player to help you in your voting (From Wikipedia):

    Gaius Julius Caesar, (July 12 or July 13, 100 BC – March 15, 44 BC), often simply referred to as Julius Caesar, was a Roman military and political leader and one of the most influential men in world history. He played a critical role in the transformation of the Roman Republic into the Roman Empire. His conquest of Gaul extended the Roman world all the way to the Atlantic Ocean, and he was also responsible for the first Roman invasion of Britain in 55 BC

    Charlemagne (En: pronounced /ˈʃɑrlɨmeɪn/; Fr: pronounced [ʃaʀləˈmaɲ]; German: Karl der Große; Latin: Carolus Magnus, meaning Charles the Great; numbered Charles I of France and the Holy Roman Empire) (742/747 – 28 January 814) was King of the Middle Ages.

            I went with him too. He was also known as Karl Der Grosse I believe, and was Charles Martel's grandson. He also moved very quickly and seemed to have a good grasp of logistics and he put a lot of planning into his campaigns.

            He did an outsanding job of setting up schools and monasteries, and the people of Western Europe became much more educated as a result. No one did more for spreading Christianity throughout Western Europe than Charlamagne in my opinion.

                    Ceasar was not only a great strategist and tactician, he also understood that he needed the support of the people to be succesfull. And he knew how to get it (um... buy it of course).

                            One of the hard picks. After all was considered I went with the King of the Franks, which was a German Tribe and not yet French.
