Pope Gregory V crowns Otto III as Holy Roman Emperor.

As the first German pope, it is not surprising that he would have close relations with the the German aristocracy and nobility — especially when they are his actual relatives, such as his cousin Otto III. Gregory is also one of the sons of Otto I.

Crowning his cousin as Holy Roman Emperor is in fact one of the very first things Gregory V does as pope; he had been pope for less than a month. Pope Gregory V will spend much time in Germany, possibly more than he will spend in Italy.
