Coins of the Holy Roman Emperors and their vassals. I have also included the dependencies that were just outside the Empire, but belonged to prominent Imperial noblemen, such as Prussia or Hungary. However, large kingdoms like Poland or Spain, which were occasionally ruled by Germanic monarchs, have not been included.
