Nicht umsonst wird Karl in sehr vielen Dichtungen, Sagen oder in der Geschichtsschreibung als einer der größten Kaiser verherrlicht. was once genau bedeutet nun aber „im Inneren wirken“? Das von ihm durchdachte Reformprogramm, durch welches die Bedingungen des öffentlichen Lebens verbessert werden sollten, und die Ergebnisse, die daraus hervorgingen, werden als karolingische Renaissance bezeichnet.
