Charlemagn­e’s bones


The Proserpina sarcophagu­s, which is currently displayed at the Aachen Cathedral Treasury, did not originate during Charlemagn­e’s lifetime. Made from marble, it was created during the early 3rd century CE in Rome, around 500 years before the birth of Charlemagn­e. However, it has been argued that he was possibly interred in the sarcophagu­s after his death in 814.
