Thank you for protecting me. I crown you King Charlemagne.
Thank you. It is an honor to be in your presence.
I sent you down to Earth to fufill my requests
No, my reason is correct!
Charlemagne was a devout Christian. His goal was to thank God by improving the Church. When Charlemagne protected the Pope, the Pope crowned him as emperor in return. The coronation strengthened the Church in Western Europe but went against the ides of the Eastern Church and made the two Churches split in the great schism.
Why is the pope taking my rights?
Both Charlemagne and the Pope had different ideas. Charlemagne believed that God made him emperor in order to do God’s work on Earth. The Pope believed the Church made Charlemagne emperor.
I will remove you from being Pope.
I will hire a bishop against you.
These differences slowly led to a split between the two. Over time they both grew further apart. So finally 200 years later the Pope and emperor were in a dramic clash against eachother.
This will finally resolve the large conflict.
In 1073 Pope Gregory issued a list of rules declaring his supreme authority over both Church and secular leaders. King Henry believed that these were a direct attack on his own power and rights. Pope Gregory could even take emperors off the throne.
Pope Gregory and King Henry clashed against each other. Both Pope and King Henry appointed rival bishops. Henry even tried to remove Gregory as Pope. The people across Europe members of the clergy and secular rulers took sides.
The conflict ended when Henry drove the Pope from his office. Even after their death, conflict was still happening, therefore the Concordat of Worms was signed. This agreement gave the church the sole authority to appoint bishops. It was almost a success, but popes and rulers have still continued to have conflicts.
