Welcome to H-HRE, a member of H-Net Humanities & Social Sciences Online. H-HRE is an online community dedicated to research and teaching on the history of the Holy Roman Empire. We welcome discussion and debate on historical issues that concern both the empire's entire life span, from the coronation of Otto I in 962 to the dissolution of the empire in 1806, and the empire's entire territory, from the North Sea to the Mediterranean. We encourage all forms of historical inquiry--political, religious, gender, military, cultural, social, diplomatic, interdisciplinary studies, and more--that enhance our understanding of the Holy Roman Empire.
