Showdown at Canossa

Storyboard Text

  • I do not agree with who you chose to be bishop. You only chose them so you could gain more power
  • He is going to be a great bishop. And may I remind you that I am king and you serve ME!
  • I must do something to gain forgiveness or I will loose all of my power.
  • Since you decided to disrespect me I am now excommunicating you.
  • I hereby banish King Henry IV from the church!!
  • I will sit out here barefoot in the snow begging for forgiveness for as long as it takes. Even if I die in the process.
  • 3 days later...
  • I will forgive you and accept you back into the church. So long as I choose who the bishops will be from now on.
  • If you do such a thing I will have my army drive you out of Rome and you will be replaced by someone who is actually loyal to me.
  • I WILL banish you again, and this time I will not forgive you!
  • I have loved righteousness and hated iniquity. Therefor, I die in exile.
