March Equinox – What a History

Friday was March Equinox, Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere. A time to celebrate new beginnings and all will be quiet here at Grosser Karlsteine, Charlemagne’s Stones, in Osnabruck. But on Winter Solstice and Summer Equinox orbs of light are said to hover over the stones to a background of tortured screaming, while stains appear on them that are impossible to explain away.

Charlemagne's Stones

Charlemagne’s Stones

The haunted stones of “Karlsteine im Hone”, a former pagan temple and burial area. A megalithic chambered tomb built sometime between 3,500 and 2,800 BC, the alleged phenomenon is said to be a result of pagan priests being killed, and their graves desecrated, by Charlemagne.

There is a legend that he broke the site’s largest altar stone with just one blow, to prove Christian beliefs were stronger than paganism.

The population of this region, as many others during Charlemagne’s reign, converted to Christianity – the alternative being death.

Charlemagne, Charles the Great, was later crowned western Europe’s first Emperor in three centuries by Pope Leo III in 800 AD, and his remains lie in Aachen cathedral, the oldest cathedral in northern Europe.
