"Without Islam the Frankish Empire would probably never have existed and Charlemagne, without Mohammet, would be inconceivable" is a famous dictum by Belgian historian Henri Pirenne first put forward in 1922 in the article and "Mahomet et Charlemagne".

Its original French reads "Sans l'Islam, l'Empire franc n'aurait sans doute jamais existé, et Charlemagne sans Mahomet serait inconcevable."
