This storyboard does not have a description.
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.
