CHARLES MARTEL

***

Some good, worthy souls

Can reach Paradise early

He’s been dead five years

***

NOTE: Charles Martel is in Paradise despite dying only five years earlier. Some saved souls spend hundreds of years climbing the Mountain of Purgatory. He died in 1295, and the year Dante the Pilgrim visited Paradise is 1300.
