The Charlemagne Prize has been awarded since 1950 to personalities and institutions that have made a leading position for European integration. The name is Emperor Charles great.

The time shows that "freedom values are a fragile good," she said, praising Macron's enthusiasm. The EU needs a new departure and must take its fate into its own hands, Merkel said.

"I believe in a more integrated eurozone with its own budget," said Macron in his speech. "In Germany, re can be no perpetual fetishism for household and trade surpluses because y are achieved at expense of ors."
