In the 9th century, Charlemagne and the bishop of the city came to an agreement in which the bishop was in charge of the city. Throughout its history, Parma has been under the rule of the French, Spanish, Farnese, Bourbons and the Pope Paul III. In the 20th century, it was awarded with the Gold Medal for Military Valor, as the whole city fought against the Nazis and helped the Allies reconquer the territory.
