(p.xvi) (p.1) Introduction
Medieval Germany 1056–1273

Alfred Haverkamp

Oxford University Press

The date range of the period of more than two hundred years from 1056 to 1273 derive from the course of political history in the German empire. The first date is determined by the beginning of Henry IV’s reign, after the early death of his father, Henry III. The other limit is the election of King Rudolf of Habsburg, after the death of Richard of Cornwall. The struggles for the succession to the throne considerably affected the capacity for action of the German emperors. In Germany, this capacity was closely related to the increase in power of the secular and ecclesiastical princes. Part I of this book looks at this age from a European perspective. To bring out the connections in time between events in this broad view, the period dealt with is divided into two phases in Parts II and III of the book.
