  Henry IV, Holy Roman Emperor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Henry IV (November 11, 1050 – August 7, 1106) was King of Germany from 1056 and Emperor from 1084, until his abdication in 1105.
Henry was the eldest son of the Emperor Henry III, by his second wife Agnes de Poitou, and was probably born at the royal palace at Goslar.
Henry jeopardized both when, in 1075, his insistence on the right of a secular ruler to invest, i.e., to place in office, members of the clergy, especially bishops, began the conflict known as the Investiture Controversy.

 pirandello and Caligula
This is further emphasized by the fact that one of the hired lackeys (the “counsel­lors” of Henry’s court) refuses to play his eleventh century role: he has prepared himself for the sixteenth century court of King Henry IV of France only to discover that he must serve the eleventh century Emperor Henry IV of Germany.
Henry IV, Pirandello has no reason to externalize his hero because the Emperor Henry IV as we see him is not actually a real person: rather, he is an identity, a role, which was forced upon the hero twenty years previously.
Henry IV does Pirandello allow his protagonist to depart from this passivity, and this one instance (the stabbing of Tito Belcredi) is the result of a reality forced upon Henry by the psy­chiatrist’s plot in causing the portraits to come alive.

By this time the members of the Habsburg family were thoroughly alarmed at the indifference or incompetence of the emperor; and their anxieties were not diminished by the knowledge that he was in feeble health, was unmarried, and had refused to take any steps towards securing the election of a successor.
Having at first rejected the demand of the Bohemians for greater religious liberty, the emperor was soon obliged to yield to superior force, and in 1609 he acceded to the popular wishes by issuing the Letter of Majesty (Majestatsbrief), and then made similar concessions to his subjects in Silesia and elsewhere.

The conflict between Emperor Henry IV (1056-1106) and Pope Gregory VII (1073-1085) was the main political event of the late XI-th century - it was in fact the conflict between the most powerful forces of the Christian World, both of them having the same goal: the European (2) supremacy.
His father, Henry III, died when he was still a child (1056) and was not until 1066 that Henry IV began to rule the Empire by himself.
Even in the political area the problems were complicated: Henry IV and Gregory VII fought for the right of investing bishops, but they also had among their goals the control over Italy, and perhaps the competition for primacy was considered at that time only as a secondary problem.

Twenty years earlier, an emotionally fragile young "Henry" (Luciano Bartoli) suffered from a concussion after being thrown from his horse during a pageant fair and, awakening to the crushing sight of his beloved Matilda (Latou Chardons) entertaining the affections of another suitor, suffered a psychotic break during the evening's festivities.
Now, years later, Henry's nephew has taken up his uncle's seemingly hopeless cause, spurred in part by his devoted mother's belief shortly before her death that her brother was nearly cured from his psychological affliction by requesting the services of a psychiatrist (Leopoldo Trieste) to evaluate Henry's mental health.
