From the Publisher...

Germany in the late middle ages! It is a time of flourishing cities, influential bishops, the powerful popes, and a pompous aristocracy. In such a volatile climate, no dynasty can remain in power for long. Several aristocratic families seek to acquire the crown of the emporer. But this decision lies in the hands of the seven elector. 2–4 emporer candidates use their knights and cities, marry their barons, and work to influence the electors. But all efforts are useless if the candidate is not elected to be emporer. But, in the shadow of the properly elected emporer, are always those who want to displace him and become the new emporer.

Rob Markley - Mt Albert Auckland NZ

I like games that explore and explain aspects of history. An essential characteristic of European history for a thousand years was the Holy Roman Emperor - usually weak but always important and equally hard to comprehend in our modern world. Here is the fun way of illuminating obscure history, with excellent and innovative game mechanics.

A.J. Sansom
A perfectly balanced political game for 4 players. If you are going to play it with fewer than 4 players, it loses some of its appeal, but the aging mechanic, along with the tough decisions on choosing which actions to take (and what gender of baby it may give you) is still plenty enough to make it a fun game to play.
