Struggle Between Church and State
Hi! I am King Henry IV! I have been the king ever since I was fifteen! With all this power, surely I will choose the church officials.
Greetings! I am Pope Gregory VII! I was the man who reformed the church, as it is the most supreme power on Earth after all. With this power that I hold, I will choose the church officials!
The king wishes to speak to you in his castle. It is of upmost important.
Hey, so I know you're the pope and all, but... I'm the king. I kinda rule over you. So I am going to be the one who choses church officials and you can just, keep doing pope thing a guess. End. Of. Story.
Haha, how 'bout you don't! God has chosen ME to rule the church, not you. You are not the pope, I am. So, I should be the one who makes the decision for the church! Get excommunicated!
Well that did not go as planned at all. Looks like I will have to go beg the pope's mercy. Maybe if I do this, my vassals will not rebel against me.
So, how were your days in the cold snow? I see you have come crawling back to me here.
Granted! Consider yourself blessed by God Himself! I will revoke your excommunication. I still win though, I shall choose church officials.
It was pretty cool. And yes, I have come to beg your Mercy.
