The Creation of the Holy Roman Empire YA By: skyler dickerson

Clovis took power with brute force

Ruled both west and east side of the rhine river

After protecting the pope Charlemagne was annotated the holy emperor of Rome.

Relied on local counts to figure out small geographic problems

For the Pope's blessing Pepin promised to protect the church

Pepin the short successfully removed the lombards which made them give their land to the pope
