Storyboard Text

  • I proclaim you the Emperor of our astounding empire, in name of the Church!
  • Thank you so much! I saved you from being excommunicated by your church, so this is your favor to me.
  • I wonder what he means, "In name of the church, for God has blessed me with this. Hmmm
  • Some 200 years later with King Henry lV and Pope Gregory..
  • I have proclaimed my rights as Pope, and I shall abide by them. Pope Leo started the message himself.
  • And I shall not let you steal my worth, for I am King! I will do anything in my power to stop you!
  • After elected counter bishops quarreling...
  • You know well you should not be appointing a bishop, for that is my duty!
  • As King, I shall order what I wish, and I think I might just take away your position as Pope
  • After Charlemagne's coronation by Pope Leo, different views on why Charlemagne was named emperor were made. A feud between popes and kings created based on their opposing opinions. Popes believed the Church brought emperors to power, but kings believed they were chosen by God to hold power.
  • I will return, and I will come back stronger, you just wait and see.
  • Its official, I dethrone you! Leave this castle, and never return!
  • Centuries later, King Henry lV and Pope Gregory, they were at constant battle for power. The Pope made a list of rules of his authority, including electing bishops alone, power over secular leaders, and power to remove emperors. This apparently angered King Henry, knowing how the Pope would be the cause of his decline.
  • After sitting outside for three days and "settling, when army comes in...
  • I want you and all of your warriors to leave my castle at once! I have forgiven you and I'm done
  • And i'm not done! I am here to remove you as Pope, or else!
  • In attempt to maintain his power, King Henry elected his own bishop after these rules were declared by Pope Gregory, as a counter-cross election to the bishop of Pope Gregory. Their bishops rivaled against each other, until King Henry tried to remove the Pope from office. The two were back and forth at each other, in a battle for authority
  • In and around this day...
  • Why must we have to share abilities?
  • After King Henry's attempt to rid of the Pope, Pope Gregory excommunicated King Henry, and his action was successful. Across Europe, people took sides, some standing by the Pope, and some agreeing with King Henry, with the aspects of who had control over what. King Henry built up an army of followers, leading to what was worse to come.
  • King Henry stood outside of Pope Gregory's Italian castle in the snow for three days until the Pope saw him, and forgave him for the quarreling. However, King Henry wanted revenge, and later marched his followers into his castle, to forcefully impeach Pope Gregory. In the end, none of these two men received what they longed for, which was sole authority.
  • Oh fine!
  • The end left King Henry lV and Pope Gregory with nothing of what was wanted. Hence, the Concordat of Worms was made, and it's an agreement giving the Church sole authority to appoint bishops, but allowing emperors to give fiefs to win bishop's loyalty. This gives some bit of equality, however, kings and popes still disagree to this very day.
