Wordless Wednesday - The Insignia of the Holy Roman Empire

 
The Orb, Scepter and Crown, insignia of the Holy Roman Empire
 
 
These precious objects belonged to Otto I in the 10th Century, and
were brought to Frankfurt for every imperial coronation.
 
Otto the Great is the son of Queen Mechthild and King Heinrich the Fowler, main characters in my current work in progress.
