Politics and world events

Investiture Controversy

  • February 9 : In Sutri , King Henry V and Pope Paschal II hold secret negotiations to end the investiture dispute . Both agree on the radical solution called iuramentum Sutrinum . The settlement of Sutri provides that the German king waives the right to invest and in return crowns Paschal II Heinrich V as emperor and returns the regalia. As a price for the emperor's renunciation of the investiture of bishops, all manors, customs duties and minting rights conferred on clerical dignitaries should revert to the emperor.
  • February 12th : The Treaty of Sutri fails because the secular and spiritual princes do not agree after the announcement. There is also an uproar in the city of Rome. The coronation already in progress must be canceled. Henry V then takes the Pope and several cardinals prisoner.
  • April 12th : Henry V forces his own coronation as Holy Roman Emperor in Rome by the Pope. The Pope Paschal II in his hand accepts the Treaty of Ponte Mammolo , which guarantees the emperor extensive rights in the investiture dispute , and is then released. Heinrich also succeeds in solving his late father Heinrich IV. From the papal ban.
  • August 7th : The body of Heinrich IV. Is transferred to the crypt in the Speyer Cathedral .
  • Because of the arrest of the Pope, Heinrich loses support in the Christian world.
