I have expanded this article substantially, but there is much left to do. I could use help especially regarding Austira, Switzerland, the Italian wars, and his reign as Emperor. A great deal of what I've added was pulled (not verbatim) from wiki articles about other people. Laura1822 19:55, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

And so, my question is: In the article on the Knight's Revolt, Franz von Sickingen is labeled as "The Last Knight." Could it be that you copied that into the article on Maximilian, labeling Maximilian also, here in this article, as "The Last Knight?" Just checking.T.Mc 07:08, 11 August 2009 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tommcnabb (talkcontribs)


Shouldn't Maximillian's page as well as the other pages about Holy Roman Emperor-Elects say Emperor-Elect in the title rather than emperor? After all, you were only truely a Holy Roman Emperor if you were coronated as such by the pope. Since Maximillian and his grandson's successors (his grandson was the last emperor who recieved papal coronation) be labeled as Name of person, Holy Roman Emperor-Elect rather than Name of person, Holy Roman Emperor? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Emperor001 (talkcontribs) (I forgot to sign in.)20:47, 9 May 2007 (UTC).

I've taken the opposite position on the "holy roman emperor" talk page. The list of emperors in that article currently labels all the post-1508 emperors as "emperor elect." To my way of thinking that is misleading because it implies that they weren't quite the emperor. But my understanding is that the Popes acquiesced in no longer insisting on crowning the emperors. So that the policy was changed as a practical matter.Eldred 02:34, 10 May 2007 (UTC)

Could someone add that picture of his armour, which got shot four times with a crossbow?

Holy Roman Emperor would always be incorrect. The empire had that notion, not the emperor.--MacX85 (talk) 16:10, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

A Question on the Manual Redirect[edit]

Why has the "for this see this page" thing at the top been changed from Maximilian in Mexico to Maximilian in Rome (a red link)? (talk) 01:13, 17 February 2008 (UTC)

When did he become Holy Roman Emperor?[edit]

The article says that Maximilian succeded his father and that his father died in 1493, yet it later says that Maximilian became Holy Roman Emperor in 1508? Surtsicna (talk) 12:29, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

Maximilian I as King of Hungary?[edit]

The list of titles at the bottom of the page includes "King of Hungary", but according to the section "Tu felix Austria nube" the Hungarian kingship didn't pass into Habsburg hands until 1526. Likewise the article "List of rulers of Hungary" has Matthias Corvinus, Vladislaus II and Louis II as kings for the relevant period, and the article on the House of Habsburg also denies that they were kings of Hungary at the time. So is this a mistake, or was it like the British monarchy claiming to be kings of France for centuries? Proparoxytone (talk) 14:03, 20 March 2011 (UTC)proparoxytone

Maximilian I seems to have been a pretender to the throne of Hungary and this source confirms it but I am not sure on which basis he claimed it. Surtsicna (talk) 20:51, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Apparent 1488 imprisonment in Cranenburg House, Bruges[edit]

I see this from two sources, bruges and west flanders and nndb: "early in 1488 Maximilian, having entered Bruges, was detained there as a prisoner for nearly three months, and only set at liberty on the approach of his father with a large force. On his release he had promised he would maintain the treaty of Arras and withdraw from the Netherlands; but he delayed his departure for nearly a year and took part in a punitive campaign against his captors and their allies."

How is it that it is absent from this article?

I have just uploaded a picture of the building he was imprisoned in and started the article. prat (talk) 02:27, 18 July 2013 (UTC)

Last Holy Roman Emperor to...[edit]

According to the Page about Knights, Max. was the last HREMP to lead his army into war and it links to here, but I see no ref to it here.
