Origin of the nameedit

Kaiserpfalz is a German word that is a combination of Kaiser, meaning "emperor", which is derived from "caesar"; and Pfalz, meaning "palace", and itself derived from the Latin palatium, meaning the same see palace Likewise Königspfalz is a combination of König, "king", and Pfalz, meaning "royal palace"

Description and purposeedit

Like their peers in France, England or Hungary, the medieval emperors of the Holy Roman Empire did not rule from a capital city, but they had to maintain personal contact with his vassals on the ground This was so-called "itinerant kingship"; a sort of "travelling kingdom" Reisekönigtum Because pfalzen were built and used by the king as a ruler within the Holy Roman Empire rex Romanorum Römischer König, the correct historical term is Königspfalz or "royal palace" The term Kaiserpfalz is a 19th-century appellation that overlooks the fact that the king did not bear the title of the Roman Emperor granted by the Pope until after his imperial coronation Unlike a pfalz, where the itinerant ruler enacted his sovereign duties, a royal estate or Königshof is only an economic estate owned by the king, which was only occasionally used by the king on his itinerary2

Unlike the common notion of "palace", a pfalz was not a permanent residence but a place where the emperor stayed for a certain time, usually less than a year; itineraries suggest that the monarch rarely would stay for longer than a few weeks Moreover, they were not always grand palaces in the accepted sense: some were small castles or fortified hunting lodges, such as Bodfeld in the Harz But in the main they were large manor houses Gutshöfe, that offered catering and accommodation for the king and his many retainers, often running to hundreds of staff, as well as numerous guests and their horses In Latin, such a royal manor was known as a villa regia or curtis regia They were located either near the bishop's residences, near important abbeys, near towns the king held or in the countryside in the middle of royal estates Pfalzen were generally built at intervals of 30 kilometres, which represented a day's journey by horse at that time

At a minimum, a pfalz consisted of a palas with its Great Hall or Aula Regia, an imperial chapel Pfalzkapelle and an estate Gutshof It was here that kings and emperors carried out the business of state, held their imperial court sessions and celebrated important church festivals Each was administered by a count palatine, who executed jurisdiction in the emperor's stead One of the most important of them would eventually rise to the title of Prince-elector

The pfalzen that the rulers visited varied depending on their function Especially important were those palaces in which the kings spent the winter winter palaces or Winterpfalzen, and the festival palaces Festtagspfalzen, Easter being the most important and celebrated at Easter palaces Osterpfalzen

The larger palaces were often in towns that had special rights e g imperial immediacy, but could also be bishop's seats or imperial abbeys

In the Hohenstaufen era of the Roman-German kingdom, important imperial princes began to demonstrate their claims to power by building their own pfalzen Important examples of these include Henry the Lion's Dankwarderode Castle in Brunswick and the Wartburg above Eisenach in Thuringia Both buildings followed the basic design of Hohenstaufen pfalzen and also had the same dimensions
