Charlemagne was a Christian ruler his goal as a ruler was to rule in a Christian manner. They worked together many times, Pope Leo had eventually crowned Charlemagne, and the Charlemagne flo to Rome and the pope had protected him. One lasting effect of the coronation was that it strengthened the power of the church in Western Europe.
how dare you trick me like that!
Charlemagne believed that god had made him emperor in order to do God’s work on Earth. On the other hand, Pope Leo believed that the church had made Charlemagne emperor. 200 years later, a dramatic clash happened between emperor and pope.
No I should I am the Pope
You know what i think i should chose the Bishop!
In 1073 Pope Gregory VII declared power alone and he felt like he had the right to chose and remove bishops from the throne King Henry didn’t agree with the Pope and there was an attack between the two man.
You don't have the right to!
Both Pope Gregory and King Henry tried to remove their powers from each other, then Pope Gregory tried to excommunicate King Henry. People across europe didn’t want that to continue and they tried to stop it.
The conflict ended with them dying. The concordat of worms started with them arguing and that gave the church the sole authority to appoint bishops. This was not a success because popes and kings continued to have the same conflict.
At the end both the Pope and the king had died and the argument continued with the new king and the new Pope. But still everyone had different opinions with there arguments. And no one enjoyed it.
