The Making of Charlemagne’s Europe database project will be holding a launch party to mark the database being made publically available on this website. The party will be at 5 pm on Friday 12th December at King’s College London (History Department, 8th Floor Strand campus). All are warmly invited to attend: please let Alice Rio ( know by Thursday 4th December if you will be coming.

We are also holding a competition to mark the launch: which is the strangest personal name you have come across in a medieval charter? The winner will be decided by a vote at the launch party. Any personal name in a medieval charter (500-1500 AD) can be suggested: please send your favourite name and the charter reference to Rachel Stone ( by Wednesday 10th December. We will be announcing the results in a post on this blog after the launch.
