Please, will you please protect me from being removed?
I present you Holy Roman Empire
I dont believe that
The church made you emperor

We should come to an agreement to end this fight
Charlemagne believed that god had made him emperor in order to do God's work on Earth. Pope Leo believed that the church had made Charlemagne emperor and not god. 200 years after Charlemagnes coronation, these different views led to a dramatic clash between an emperor and Pope.
Thank you King Henry for ending the period of struggle of the power
In 1073 a monk named Hildebrand became Pope Gregory the 3rd. Gregory had strong ideas about the powers of the Pope. Henry IV reacted to Gregory's new rules and there was a direct attack on his own power and rights. The stage was set for a clash of wills between the 2 men.
Pope Gregory changed the rules and King Henry was furious. They both fought each other and came up with an agreement to end the fight. Although they ended the fight, King Henry ended up winning because he had more power.
The Concordat at Worms is the agreement between the Pope and King Henry located near the city of Worms. It was succesful because it gave equal rights to all people and lead to an agreement. This agreement also brought an end to the period of struggle of the power.
