Henry I was the first Saxon on the royal throne. He brought peace to the Kingdom of the Eastern Franks, rose to become the most powerful monarch in Europe in his day, and established a royal dynasty. His son would go down in history as Emperor Otto the Great. Who was this Henry, who suddenly became king in 919?
The World Heritage Site of Quedlinburg is commemorating the 1,100th anniversary of his kingship in 2019 with a special exhibition at an authentic historical site. Henry’s tomb in Quedlinburg’s collegiate church is the starting point of a thriving medieval city that is now a unique historical World Heritage Site.
