Hi I am King Charlemagne and I want to be the Christian Ruler
Well Im the current Pope the leader of the christians
HELP! I am being outed of office!
I am the emperor so I was sent by god !
I made you Emperor so I was sent by god !
The great king was attempting to be the Christian ruler of his land and the Pope was the leader of the Christian people. Thus the King needed the Pope to be a christian ruler. The Pope needed the King because he was the ruled of the people.
The Current King holds Too much power I am point to change that.
Their cooperation was a high point in society because the two rulers did not always get along. On one day in 799 AD the Pope came running to The King for safety and help. His own office wanted him out and he needed the King to support him. He was rewarded with becoming the Emperor of the land.
The King is the real ruler! The Pope is the assistant
The Pope is the real ruler! The King is the assistant
The Pope and the king were in a thick disagreement that was hwo was the assisstiant and who was sent by God to spred christianity. They each thought the other should be the one sent by God and they fought and the Pope decided to take action. He started a fight of such 200 years later in 1073 AD between the two all powerful rulers.
Even if the Population thinks were done its not over
After a while the Pope decided to make it so only the Pope could appoint bishops and Charlamane did not like this. In rebuttle he appointed his own bishop becsuse he thought it as his own right as emporer to make bishops. After this the Pope and the King were in a deep conflict.
As a result of the King making his own bishop against the Pope's rule he was excommunicated him and he was posted as an outcast. After that the Pope freed his subjects from him so they were no longer loyal unless they wanted to be. Their actions split the people between the King and Pope and would be like this till the end of the conflict.
As the conflict ended the Pope let the King offer feifs of land for loyalty of the bishops but he could not appoint them himself. The people dident have to choose between the two rulers so they were put more at ease. The conflict was not over though and it still went on till the King and Pope died.
