The Holy Roman Empire (Latin: Sacrum Romanum Imperium) is a multi-ethnic complex of territories that developed during the Early Middle Ages. The Empire saw its dissolution in 1806 and its revival under Emperor Quentin in 2014.

History

After the fall of the Western Roman Empire the west was divided amongst various kingdoms. Through the great deeds of the Frankish King Charles the Great the west was re-united under one crown and one faith. The Pope, through the concept of translatio imperii, crowned Charles the Great as Emperor of the Romans, becoming the first Western Roman Emperor since 476 and establishing the Frankish Carolingian Empire.

Rise and Fall

Emperor Otto, was the first Emperor who truly established the Holy Roman Empire. This Empire lasted through the ages until the weakness caused by the Golden Bull and Napoleon Bonaparte's wars in 1806 when Emperor Francis II abdicated the throne and established the Austrian Empire.

The Empire grew to incompass north and central Italy, Germany, Bohemia, Burgundy and the Low Countries. Over time the fights with the Pope, the reformation and corruption in the Catholic Church aswel as the growing indepedence of the states caused a decline in terretory and Imperial power.

Modern day

The disolution of the Empire was seen as unlawfull by the decendent and ethnicly Frankish King Quentin of Wyvern. He claimed by blood the right to re-establish the Empire and its institutions. He was crowned as Emperor (Augustus) of the Romans in 2014.

Imperial Government

The government of the Confederal Empire is made up of citizens of the Empire and are appointed by the Holy Roman Emperor. The Imperial Diet can fire them by a motion of no-confidence and can nominate candidates for the Emperor to review.

The Imperial Government is made up of an Imperial Chancellor, Vice Imperial Chancellor,Imperial Steward, Imperial Martial, Imperial Chaplain and the Archchancellors of Germany, Italy and Burgundy.

Imperial Chancellor

The Imperial Chancellor (Du: Reichskanselier) is the head of the Imperial Government. He is in charge of the day to day activities of the Empire and represents the government when called for questioning in the Imperial Diet.

The Imperial Chancellor must be a Prince-Elector of the Empire and cannot be the Emperor himself. In the absence of the Imperial Chancellor the Vice Imperial Chancellor takes over his duties.

Archchancellors

The Empire knows three kingdoms that remain under the control of the Emperor and not of any member of the Empire. These kingdoms are the Kingdom of Germany, Kingdom of Italy and the Kingdom of Burgundy.

These Kingdoms are managed by local governments set up autonomous of the Imperial Government. These local governments are managed and headed by the Archchancellor of that Kingdom. They are appointed by the Emperor and represent the Kingdom they govern in name of the Emperor in the Imperial Government.

Imperial Diet

The Imperial Diet of the Holy Roman Empire is the legislative gathering of its member states, presided over by the Emperor.

The member states of the Holy Roman Empire can request a Diet to be held if they deem that a decision must be made which can only be made by the Diet or if there is information that comes to light of which the Diet must be informed.

Demographics

As of 2017, of the 66 Holy Roman subjects, 40.9% were Wyvernians, 34.8% were Natalian, 21.2% were Montanian, and 3.0% were Clevelandic.

Imperial Estates

All historical terretories and all member-states are Imperial Estates of the Empire and are bound by Imperial Law and Imperial Authority. Member-states enjoy the right to vote in the Imperial Diet and the protection of the Empire.

Imperial Kingdoms

The Holy Roman Empire knows four Kingdoms that are a permanent and integral part of the Empire. These Kingdoms are for the most part ruled by the Imperial Government in name of the Emperor (who is the King of three of the four Kingdoms), with the exception of Bohemia, which has its own autonomous government and the crown isnt automaticly in union with the Imperial Crown like the others are.

The Imperial Kingdoms are:

  • Kingdom of Germany
  • Kingdom of Italy
  • Kingdom of Burgundy
  • Kingdom of Bohemia
