Excommunicated Royals

Holy Roman Emperor Henry IV, who reigned from 1056 to 1105, was excommunicated by Pope Gregory VII three separate times and once by Pope Urban II. The first time was on February 22, 1076 over the Investiture Controversy.

Thanks, you are right. Something that always confuses me is why/how Rome could excommunicate Elizabeth I....at the time of her birth hadn't Henry separated the English Church from Rome anyway? Elizabeth was not-strictly speaking-baptized as a Roman Catholic and she certainly never considered herself one during her long life.

(Even though she was never quite as radically Protestant as her younger brother, Edward VI.)

So why issue a papal bull specifically to excommunicate her?

The Regnans in Excelsis was issued on the 25th of February 1570 by Pope Pius

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regnans_in_Excelsis

Only a year before Elizabeth had the Northern Rebellion to contend with and Ireland was in open rebellion against her authority.

Henri III of Navarre famously converted to Catholicism to become Henri IV of France. I didn't know he had been excommunicated along with his Protestant mother, but his excommunication must have been lifted when he converted, was it not ?

She couldn't consider herself a RC otherwise she would have had to "admit" she was a bastard and that the legitimate Queen was Mary of Scots. The Settlement of 1559 and other personal preferences regarding Bryd and Tallis etc shows she certainly wasn't a radical protestant.

The Papal Bull? To officially support her enemies against her.

Henri was baptized Roman Catholic ,later raised Calvinist,abjured under Catherine de Médicis ,declared himself Calvinist again in the mid 1570's,excommunicated by the Pope in 1589 to stop him becoming King of France,abjured again in 1593 but Pope Clement VIII only removed the ban of excommunication from Henry on the 17th of September 1595.

It also denounced any Catholic Sovereign who came to her aid and prevented Elizabeth from marrying a Catholic.

Lucky for Elizabeth France was in chaos ,Catherine de Médicis and her sons were preoccupied with the Huguenot Wars,the Emperor was busy fighting the Turks and Philip II with the Rebellion in the Low Countries.

So he was crowned/ consecrated King of France before the excommunication was lifted ? I didn't know that was possible !

The abjuration of Henri IV, July 25, 1593, in the Basilica of Saint-Denis.



His Coronation took place at Chartres Cathedral on February 25th,1594 and not at Reims the traditional Coronation site of French Monarchs .

Victor Emmanuel II of Italy was excommunicated by Pope Pius IX after waging war with the Papal States:

Emperor Napoleon was also excommunicated after he ordered various anti-Papal laws:

Robert the Bruce was excommunicated after he was killed before the altar of Greyfriars Church at Dumfries:

Interesting page on Pinterest of famous figures (including royals) who were excommunicated from the Catholic church:

Thank you, very interesting! But what I don't understand is how the pope could excommunicate someone who was not Roman Catholic in the first place?

Was it simply a sort of thumbs up to the rest of Catholic Europe to go ahead and launch attacks against the "heathen" on the English throne with the full approval of the Holy See?

Elizabeth attended Mass during Mary I’ s reign, so I assume that, at least for a while, she was in communion with the Catholic Church.

From The Catholic Encyclopedia, under the heading "Who can be excommunicated?":

"With the foregoing exceptions, all who have been baptized are liable to excommunication, even those who have never belonged to the true Church, since by their baptism they are really her subjects, though of course rebellious ones."

In other words, the Pope regarded all baptized Christians, Roman Catholic or not, to be his subjects.

Being properly baptized using the Trinitarian formula...just for clarity.

Pope Innocent III (in office 1198-1216) rejected the Archbishop of Canterbury, who had been nominated by King John of England. During the ensuing hostilities the King was excommunicated. John had the punishment removed by paying a tribute of 1,000 marks.

Rita Hayworth married Muslim Prince Aly Khan and the wedding caused a scandal: the Vatican excommunicated her and many boycotted her films. In this period Rita decided to leave Hollywood to devote herself to her family.
