HEART OF EUROPE: A History of the Holy Roman Empire
Traces the empire from its origins within Charlemagne's kingdom in 800 AD to its demise in 1806. With no fixed capital and no common language or culture, the source of its continuity and legitimacy was the ideal of a unified Christian civilization, which however did not prevent emperors from clashing with the pope over supremacy. 16 pages of photos, maps.
