The emergence from the Dark Ages is embodied in the rise to power of the Frankish King, Charlemagne in 768 (founder of the Holy Roman Empire after 800) followed by conquering southern Europe from France to Italy and much of Northern Europe. The condition for peace was the acceptance of Christianity, under penalty of death. The conversion was effective and Northern Europeans, primarily Saxons, wore small crosses to affirm their Christianity. This example is slightly under 1” height with trefoil terminals to the beams. The cross beam slightly above center and a saltire at the junction. Professionally refurbished with the silver overlay restored on a modern sterling silver chain.
