Nursing Assessment Portrait in a gold dress. This is one of the most recognizable works of art in the collections of the Smithsonian Institution. The enamel of the museum building has been worn away to expose the plasterwork, which is painted in a variety of tints. The inscription reads, in Latin, “Anno Dom. 8005 Diocc. an de summa intervalla Amtum, The emperor Charlemagne, “King of the Franks”. The “emperor” Charlemagne reigned from 768 to 814. He was born in Spain and succeeded his father Charles III to the throne of the Franks, conquering the Carolingian Empire. After being crowned emperor he began to focus on spreading Christianity throughout Europe. Charlemagne employed bishops, priests and others to translate church and bible texts from Latin into the vernacular (spoken by the people), known as the “Old Frankish”. Charlemagne's son Louis the Pious, who was his grandson, continued this work. Charlemagne, however, inspired the high Middle Ages. The aristocracy, organized as a “court”, was the highest class. Next in rank came the “nobles”, who formed regional kingdoms. The lower classes were divided into three classes, peasants, craftsmen and workers. Work was done by slaves. The Middle Ages was a time of tremendous growth in Europe. New towns were founded, trade increased and education was widespread. An important feature of the Middle Ages was the division of government into three parts: church, state and nobility. The church and nobility had the right of investiture. Power rested with the nobility. Nobility represented the power and prestige of a kingdom or region. There was the concept of nobility even among those who were not nobles. Nobility was granted by God and was inherited. There were rights associated with noble status. Each noble family had a coat of arms. The nobility was divided into the three classes: lords, knights and vassals. The lords represented the highest nobility. Knights were soldiers. Vassals were the peasants who served the lords and the church. The Church was the spiritual arm of the State. ac619d1d87
