IN LEICHTER SPRACHE

Finds from Imperial Tombs and the Cathedral Treasury

The funerary crowns of the Salian emperors, Henry III’s imperial orb and Henry IV’s gold ring are among the unique objects from the imperial and royal tombs in Speyer Cathedral where a total of eight emperors and kings and three empresses were interred. Their graves were opened and studied in 1900. The grave goods found in the process are the centerpiece of the “Cathedral Treasury” collection.
