  • Charlemagne was a European king who wanted a Christian empire. In 799, Pope Leo III asked Charlemagne for protection. Charlemagne agreed and was rewarded by the Pope by being crowned Holy Roman Emperor As a result, the Pope won power to crown the emperor, and this angered the Byzantine emperor.
  • You are the new bishop of Milan.
  • Charlemagne and the Pope had different views on their roles. Charlemagne thought God made him emperor to carry out the work of God. However, the Pope believed he made Charlemagne emperor and that Charlemagne should carry out God's work through the church. Some two hundred years later, differences in views caused a clash between the two powerful positions.
  • I forgive you. You are welcome back to the Church.
  • You'll pay for this, Gregory!
  • Thank you.
  • In 1073, Pope Gregory VII published a list of rules stating the Pope had supreme authority of the Church. These rules also applied to secular leaders. King Henry IV fought with Pope Gregory VII since the rules attacked his power.
  • Ah!!! Okay, I quit! Are you happy Henry!?
  • The conflict between the two started when King Henry IV appointed his own bishop of Milan. The Pope responded by placing a rival bishop in Milan, and then Henry tried and failed to remove Gregory from power. Afterwards, the Pope excommunicated Henry and freed Henry's subjects. Across Europe, people took sides.
  • The conflict finally ended after Henry waited three days in the snow, waiting for the Pope to forgive him. The Pope did forgive Henry. Regardless, the power struggle raged on.
  • Henry marched his army down to Rome. This forced the Pope to resign from office. The Concordat of Worms tried to solve any future power problems from taking place after the deaths of Henry and Gregory. However, it was not successful as there were still power quarrels afterward.
