The Holy Roman Emperor
Otto I, or Otto The Great was the first Holy Roman Emperor. He was the Holy Roman Emperor from 962-973 AD. Otto defeated the Magyars (barbarians) in the battle of Lechfeld. This pleased the pope because, as head of the Christian church, he wanted everyone to be Christian. As a reward for Otto's great deed in ridding the land of non-Christians, the pope crowned Otto I the Holy Roman Emperor.
Quarrels and Crowns
All of the German Kings after Otto I had the title of Holy Roman Emperor. Sadly, this caused many quarrels with the pope.
Wonder of The World
When Frederick II's mother passed, he inherited the kingdom of Sicily. He made an unusual decision by deciding to rule his empire from there, and it became known as "The Wonder of the World". Because he ruled on an island, Frederick II could keep wild animals there. He also welcomed Muslim scholars and astrologers to his court.
