The two biggest reasons that this was able to happen were the Christian Church and the Muslim attacks. The Christian Church became the central figure in the politics and religion in Western Europe, and its interest was that there's peace between its followers, so they were trying to maintain that by uniting the people under the same religion, rules, way of life, and resolving the various disputes. The attacks from the Muslim Caliphates were another reasons, as they were seen as a common enemy, so the people were sticking together in order to be stronger, thus strengthening the unity in every sense of the word.
