Storyboard Text

  • Henry, you are too full of yourself. You don't need power over the bishops more than us Popes do. I disapprove your choices of bishops. Do not get comfortable, I will overthrow you!
  • As a king, you popes do not need more power than me. Why should you question my authority? You should not be a pope! I shall gather Germany’s bishops and remove you as a pope! I deserve the power to choose bishops because I am more powerful than you.
  • I will excommunicate you with the church and overthrow you, Henry. Do not worry, it WILL happen!
  • This is not right! Please forgive me! I will prove myself, I promise!
  • Henry stood outside Gregory’s castle for three days waiting for his forgiveness. It obviously did not come easy. Eventually, Gregory granted him forgiveness. 
  • Fine...I will forgive you. But this is not the end of it...
  • Their fight continued after the death of both Henry and Gregory. The fighting continued, changing the lives of those all over Europe in the Middle Ages. After years of fighting, a compromise was finally reached: Church officials could choose bishops but would have to obey the emperor.
