Charlemagne Receives the Submission of Witikind (1840)

Ary Scheffer: Charlemagne Receives the Submission 
of Witikind, King of the Saxons, at Paderborn in 785

Not much is known about Witikind, who is only remembered at all because he fought against the more famous Charlemagne (more famous because he won, I suppose).
