"French"?[edit]

Calling such coin issued under the rule of Charlemagne "French" is an anachronism and historically untenable. There was no such thing as "France" at the time of Charlemagne, his empire being split up into what would later evolve into Germany and France only after his death. If anything, the coin was Frankish, which, despite the superficial similarity, does not mean "French". I'll edit this. SchnitteUK (talk) 10:02, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
