The Holy Roman Empire (Latin: Imperium Romanum Sacrum, German: Heiliges Römisches Reich, Italian: Sacro Romano Impero, Czech: Svatá říše římská, Slovene: Sveto rimsko cesarstvo, Dutch: Heilige Roomse Rijk, French: Saint-Empire romain germanique, Livonian: Jumāluskli Romas Keīzaja) is a  multi-ethnic complex of territories in central Europe, including the Kingdom of Germany, the Kingdom of Bohemia, and several other territories.

Created from the nation of East Francia, a primary division of the Frankish Empire, the Holy Roman Empire arose on Christmas Day 800, when Pope Leo III crowned the Frankish king Charlemagne as Emperor, reviving the title in Western Europe after more than three centuries. The title passed in a disorganized manner during the decline and fragmentation of the Carolingian dynasty following Charlemagne's death in 814, eventually by 924 falling into complete disuse. In 962 the title would be officially revived with Otto I being crowned emperor, fashioning himself as the successor of Charlemagne and beginning a continuous existence of the empire to the present day.

Discussion

It's actually the German Trade League, not the North Sea Trade Alliance or whatever, and WWG is the sub-company of GTL. And WWG means Westphalia-Weniger not Wolfgang-Weniger. Blocky858 (talk) 04:50, October 6, 2014 (UTC)

Imperial Structural Reform Act

Due to the reduced state of the Holy Roman Empire, the Duke of Hamburg proposes to the County of Oldenburg and the remaining Habsburg states to restructure the Holy Roman Empire into a defensive alliance and each state shall come to the aid of each other in the event of an attack on one, but as a result the Holy Roman Empire would be de facto dissolved. Concerns are encouraged to be expressed. In Favor

  • Otto II, Duke of Hamburg and Mecklenburg, Count of Holstein
  • Rudolph II, King of Westphalia
