Recognizing the dispute over the Holy Roman Imperial Crown is tearing the whole of Christedom apart, We, Frederick II Hohenstaufen and Otto IV Welf, have come to an agreement that would preserve the Empire.

Under said treaty, backed by the numerous precedents from the Roman era, We shall jointly rule the Empire as Co-Emperors, each being responsible for parts that are already controlled by each side, across established boundaries.

In times of external or internal crisis, we shall come to the aid of the other to ensure stability in our empires and the ability of our dynasties to continue to rule our respective holdings.

Our two empires will technological and military advancements and ideas to ensure no side is stronger than the other.

There shall be an agreement that if one Emperor is excommunicated in the future, the other emperor must request the Pope to lift the Excommunication to ensure religious stability within our realms.

Emperor Otto IV Welf will pay a huge sum of gold, to be determined at a later date, as compensation to Emperor Frederick for the territory of his supporters within Germany.

The two empires will remain defensive and offensive allies and will agree to aid one another in any future wars that may happen.

Tariffs between the Empires will be reduced 67% and both empires will have exclusive trading rights not available to any other nation.

x Hohenstaufen.

We, the Co-Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, King of Sicily etc., etc., welcome His Holiness fatherly desire for Him and his two sons in Christ to have frank and productive discussion to resolve pressing problems. We want to assure the Holy Father there was no ill will in not bringing certain precise terms of the treaty between Us and Emperor Otto, merely a regrettable error in communication.

The Holy See and the Holy Roman Empire has been two fundamentals supporting Our Mother Holy Church, and it is inconceivable to remain being torn by what is essentially petty and easily solvable questions.

We would, however, like to humbly point out the agreement dealt with the lands that belongs to the Holy Roman Empire, thus having nothing to do with the Kingdom of Sicily. This is entirely diffrent issue.

The Holy Roman Imperial throne had been in dispute, with both sides claiming their election as the only legitimate. This is an issue that can't be resolved rashly, so our dear cousin Otto and us decided to recognize each other as "Co-Emperors", based on numerous precedents from the ancient Roman era, in order to heal the division and work together to solve the fundamental problem with all caution and participation of all parties involved. The Holy Roman Empire itself had not been divided, both sides simply suspended their exclusive claims for the common good of the Christendom.

For many, many years the Holy See and the Holy Roman Empire formed two mighty pillars upon which rests the Christendom. One spiritual, and one temporal. We are convinced that if any emperor, king of prince would ever wanted to interfere within the realm of spiritual leadership that belongs exclusively to the Pope, it would be utterly unacceptable. However, the Holy Father's temporal powers are limited to the boundaries of the Papal States and any interference in the affairs of other realms shall be viewed as no diffrent than one secular prince interfering in the affairs of another. We bow lowly before the spiritual guidance of the Vicar of the Christ, but we shall not bow before another king.

We are distressed about negative reactions to Our pact with Emperor Otto, since it's clear there's been a failure to adequately communicate true intentions of the agreement. A failure We must reluctantly take responsibility for.

The idea of Emperor Otto and Us assuming the title of Co-Emperors was always intended to be a temporary solution, aimed at preserving fracturing unity of the Holy Roman Empire until a satysfying permanent solution could be found and implemented with participation and contest of the princes of the realm. It is unfortunate We were unable to present it as such in time, to prevent confusion.

The ITALIAN LEAGUE

Agreed between the Papal States, the Republic of Venice and the Kingdom of Sicily

I We shall undertake mutual defence of blessed Italy against invaders without her, and intervention to curtail any wars that blemish her

II We shall practise trade to mutual advantage throughout our dominions

III A Venetian-Sicilian alliance at sea, blessed by the Papal banner, shall be permitted and enjoined to harry and profit upon any vessels of the Saracens, enslaving soulless heathens, enriching Christendom and thus laying a foundation for the relief of the Holy Land.

x Innocenzo

Emperor Frederick wishes to apologize to the imperial electors on the circumstances of the attempt, undertaken jointly with Emperor Otto, to stop the deterioration of the Imperial unity by adopting a temporary measure of Co-Emperorship. Our intentions were noble, but the execution left much to be desired in failure to adequately seek advice and consent from the electors.

The Emperor wishes that the issue of the Holy Roman Imperial crown be decided in a fair and satystyfing manner as soon as possible, this time with all parties involved having their rightful say.

1. Italy in general, and Sicily in particular, has been blessed with its extremely convenient geographic location, making it a natural route for the movement of people and goods. For this reason, We, Emperor Frederick, King of Sicily, decree measures to be undertook to expand the network of roads to make it easier for the traffic to access our ports. In the same vain, we order the steps to expand and improve our seaports, building of more ships to support commerce, as well as military vessels to protect our trade routes.

2. With the danger from the heathen Saracens looming over the Christedom, We must order the expandion and modernization of the royal army.

The Kingdom of Sicily sees the recent developments in the Iberia as the most serious threat the Christendom faced in many, many years. The Emperor-King offers his Castilian brother to send in his troops to aid the righteous struggle against the Saracen menace.
