Dutch news agency ANP reports on research by Swiss professor Frank Rühli on the bones of Emperor Charlemagne, buried in Aachen in Germany in 814 AD.

The conclusion is that the emperor was 1 meter 84 centimeter tall; much taller than average height in the ninth century.

The emperor was not fat, weighing about 78 kilogram.
