Henry V Crowned Holy Roman Emperor

Holy Roman Emperor Henry V
Source: Wikipedia

Henry V is crowned Holy Roman Emperor, the fourth and last ruler from the Salian dynasty. Henry V rebelled against his father Henry IV and took over at the instigation of Pope Paschal II because the pope hoped he would be easier to deal with.

However, Henry V will prove to be even more committed than his father to the idea that the crown has the right and the authority over appointing bishops and abbots. It's not until the Concordat of Worms that Holy Roman Emperor Henry V completely surrenders any claim over investiture and accepts the Gregorian reforms.
