Italian policy

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Italian policy is the policy of individual rulers or states oriented towards Italy .

In Medieval Studies , the policy of the Roman-German Emperors of the Middle Ages is particularly referred to, which was primarily aimed at Imperial Italy . There never was a generally applicable Italian policy of the Roman-German rulers, but there was an attempt to profit from the imperial rights ( regalia ) and to assert the emperor's rule in Italy. Most of the time, but not always, Italian policy was linked to military action. For examples, see also Friedrich I. and Heinrich VII.
