I would nice to have the power to choose the the bishops of the church.
You and you're kingdom have been excommunicated.
The story takes place in the medieval time, a king named Henry IV, and a pope named Gregory VII both clashed fought for the power to choose the bishop of the medieval church.
I want the power, but i am afraid my vassals will rebel against me so i will have to give it up.
The problem started when king Henry wanted to increase his power over the clergy. Then eventually this brought conflict between The Pope and him.
I hope these three days go by soon
Pope Gregory had excommunicated King Henry and his kingdom because he didn't want to lose the power of choosing the bishops of the church, and he wanted to resolve the problem.
Please forgive me for my actions.
Since back then if you were excommunicated and you were to die Christians believed that if you would not go to heaven in the time. Since King Henry was afraid that his vassals would rebel against him because they didn't want to die during the excommunication.
The king made a long journey and dangerous through the snowy mountains of northern Italy to meet the pope.But before the king could even see the pope he had to be humiliated by waiting out in the snow for three days barefoot.
Once Pope Gregory VII let King Henry VI come in his presence the king had asked the pope to forgive him. He asked him to excommunicate him and his kingdom. The pope accepted his apology after the humiliation he made him go through. After this incident it changed the lives of people all over Europe.
