Before the Golden Bull of 1356[edit]

Presumably there were Imperial elections before the Golden Bull of 1356? — OwenBlacker 10:59, 8 June 2007 (UTC)

Yep. Unfortunately, I don't have a complete set of data on them, and as the role of "elector" had not yet been strictly defined, it's not always clear who was involved. (Some of the earliest elections were more like mass meetings in which one person was elected by acclamation). But information on those elections should go here too.RandomCritic 12:23, 8 June 2007 (UTC)
Is there anywhere that might be worth looking? Is your German good enough to ask for help on the German wiki's equivalent of WP:WPFC? — OwenBlacker (Talk) 01:27, 25 March 2008 (UTC)
My understanding is that the set of electors had pretty much been set by the 1256/7 elections - so for 1256, 1273, 1292, 1298, 1308, 1314, 1346, and 1347 you'd basically have the same electors as you do after the Golden Bull. john k (talk) 15:17, 25 September 2010 (UTC)

I don't agree with the TOC as I believe it is less disorganized as the regular TOC that is found on most other pages.Curb Chain (talk) 04:32, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
