Written more than 100 years ago, the style is different than modern style but the content was very enjoyable.

I have read a great deal of the Holy Roman Empire from the beginning of the Hapsburg dynasty, and I know a little of it from the childless marriage of the emperor to King Henry's daughter (and another King's brother's election as King of the Romans who never obtained his crown). The sister, Matilda, returned to England following her husband's death, and was involved in the succession fiasco with Stephen. And that is all I knew about that earlier period.

I did not know much about how the Holy Roman Empire got its name since the emperors were Franks and then "Germans." This author explains it, and he does it with wonderful "what if" detail.

If Columbus had not sailed west to find another route to the Indies, someone else would have done it, eventually, says he. But if one Pope and on Frankish king had not been where they were on Christmas Day, 800 A.D., the entire history of the western world would have been different.

You have to read it to follow the waxing and waning of power from the Pope to the Emperor, and back and forth. And back and forth. Great story.

Although this book may not be the greatest ever written, it is one of the best n regards to the Holy Roman Empire. It accurately goes through the rise and fall of the empire and also goes through the modern day descendants and title-holders. It has an entire chapter on the Schwarzenbergs who are made to be some of the most interesting people you could ever read about. A rarely, if ever heard of family. Also the input of Napoleon is greatly expanded upon, especially with his fall the fall of the emmpire itself.

A definate MUST READ.

Assumes that the reader already has a good knowledge of the Holy Roman Empire. It gives a lot of commentary about the details of how things were, without giving the basics of what happened.

I found this book difficult to read. Bryce's knowledge of the subject is impressive, but his sentence structure is so complex and convoluted that I often had to read a sentence twice, and sometimes even that didn't work. I got through about one-third of the book before giving up and looking for another.
