Wow, this was a major dynasty!
I like the banner heading--too bad it's not in color!

Elena, I know you have a special love for the Habsburgs, being the family of our beloved Marie-Antoinette!

They were obviously very important to the development of Belgium, too, since they ruled the area for so long. If you ever want to do a guest post on my blog on something related to Maria Theresa/Marie-Antoinette/the Habsburgs/the Low Countries, just let me know.

More from the Mad Monarchist on Christian Empire:
http://madmonarchist.blogspot.com/2012/10/christian-empire.html
Today it would be hard to even comprehend a country in which the entire society was based on Christianity, Papal authority and divine investiture, or even the Divine Rights of Kings. However, the Holy Roman Empire was no centralized autocracy, despite what the enemies of traditional monarchy may say. The princes were autonomous rulers, the Emperor had authority only in the areas of defense and foreign relations, in addition to having the Pope as a moral policeman and check against arbitrary tyranny. Most day to day authority was done on the local level and included a diverse group of leaders, military, noble and religious. The feudal system was at its height during the early period of the Empire. Today people are critical of feudalism because it forced the serfs to work for a lord indefinitely, yet without the protection of the lord the serf would probably not have survived at all. The Holy Roman Empire established by Charlemagne brought Western Europe out of the Dark Ages and into the great era of the High Middle Ages. All Christians were united by one Faith with one spiritual ruler (the Pope) and one temporal ruler (the Kaiser). Since the Pope had crowned Charlemagne and successive Holy Roman Emperors the people also knew that their own king was not the ultimate authority but that God and the Church with their moral truth, were at the heart of their civilization.
