                       Henry II (973-1024) was Holy Roman Emperor from 1014 to 1024.   
                         He was known as Saint Henry.   
                         He was the son of Henry II, Duke of Bavaria and Gisela of Burgundy.   
                         He succeeded his father as Duke of Bavaria in 995 as "Henry IV".

                 Upon the demise of his cousin, Otto III, Henry was elected Emperor.   
                  Once he wished to abdicate and retire to a monastery. However, he   
                  yielded to the advice of the Abbot of Verdun and remained Emperor.

                                   Unlike his predecessor, who had focused upon imperial attention in Italy,   
                                    Henry II spent most of his reign concerned with imperial territory north of the Alps.
