Holy Roman Empire

I noticed that does not exist in the TRF no page about the Holy Roman Empire. So I decided to create one.

The Holy Roman Empire was a multi-ethnic complex of territories in central Europe that developed during the Middle Ages and continued until its dissolution in 1806.

The core and largest territory of the empire was the Kingdom of Germany, though it included at times the Kingdom of Italy, the Kingdom of Bohemia, and the Kingdom of Burgundy, as well as numerous other territories.

I like the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I.
He was named after Saint Maximilian of Tebessa.
In 1508, Maximilian, with the assent of Pope Julius II, took the title "Elected Roman Emperor".
This ended the custom that the Holy Roman Emperor had to crowned by the Pope.
Conrad II continued to build the Catholic Church as a center for imperial power.
He preferred to appoint church bishops over secular lords to important posts across the Empire.
Conrad II was Holy Roman Emperor from 1027 to 1039.
Otto III reigned 996 to 1002.
Crowned as Holy Roman Emperor, he put down the Roman rebellion and installed his cousin, Bruno of Carinthia, as Pope Gregory V.

When the Holy Roman Empire is restored, I would like to see it go back to its elective roots, with its capital in Aachen. I'm not sure yet if the Emperor or Empress should reign for life, or for a fixed term (maybe ten or twenty years). I think I would like to see a member of the Grand Ducal House of Luxembourg as next Emperor. Maybe to be followed by a Habsburg (who, by then, will back ruling in Vienna as Archdukes of Austria). Then there's the restoration of the Eastern Empire to sort out as well. It could get a bit tricky when Constantinople's Hagia Sofia is re-consecrated, but give it a couple of centuries and it will be fine.

Not by name perhaps but otherwise can largely be covered in the Royal Families of Germany and Austria subforum.
For the Habsburg Holy Roman Emperors the Imperial House of Habsburg sub-subforum should be adequate and the HRE Families (and thus to some extent HRE States) are covered in the family-specific threads. I'd rather avoid having the topic being split across too many disparate areas.

That being said, Holy Roman Emperors and development of the Holy Roman Empire itself prior to the Habsburg ascendency in 1438 could be discussed here (in the Other Non-Reigning Houses area) but to date there hasn't been any.
