"Charlemagne did not receive proper education as a child, which attributed to his life-long battle with illiteracy."
He was a gifted warrior but was not an intellectual wonder.

I believe much of what Charlemagne knew was self-taught including Latin. He was always considered talented and strong.Source(s): http://www.echeat.com/essay.php?t=26895 http://www.worldwideschool.org/library/books/hst/e...

He was a brilliant general and had a good understanding of how to lead people, but I don't think there's any evidence to call him gifted as a child. I know that he was illiterate most of his life, and taught himself to read as an adult.

Alexander the Great was considered a brilliant general, as was Stonewall Jackson, if you're interested in a military figure.
