The golden Shrine of Charlemagne, made in Aachen in 1215, still houses the emperor's remains (except for the bits kept in reliquaries in the Treasury). On the front gable Charlemagne is shown enthroned between Pope Leo III and Archbishop Turpin of Reims. The long sides of the shrine depict 16 rulers who donated to the shrine. The other gable has the Virgin Mary flanked by the archangels Gabriel and Michael. Above them are the personified virtues of faith, charity and hope.
