Adolph, Count of Nassau was the King of Germany from 1292 until 1298.   
He was never crowned by the Pope, which would have secured him the title of Holy Roman Emperor.

St Henry II (972-1024) was chosen emperor in 1002 at the death of his cousin Otto III, and crowned Holy Roman Emperor by Pope Benedict VIII, in 1014.  These were very turbulent times in most of the world, but Henry II and III did much to spread faith, justice, and peace.

Charlemagne patronized education.   
Along with the secular institutions, he also revived ecumenical (religious) schools.   
Sixteen monasteries and more than 230 cathedrals were either built or renovated during Charlemagne's reign.

On February 22, 896 Pope Formosus led King Arnulf into the church of St. Peter, anoited and crowned him as emperor, and saluted him as Augustus.

When Maximilian II reigned as Holy Roman Emperor, he allowed the publication of Lutheran liturgy and even had Lutherans at court.
   What did the Pope and the Vatican officials think about this?

This is an interesting but obviously very difficult question.  Maximillian II reigned from 1564-1576.  Pius IV served from 1559-1565, succeeded by St Pius V from 1566-1572.  It would be easier to try to search what was done or written or even said rather than what was thought.  I love to search Church issues, but not so much about heresies.  Did you happen to note a particular publication date? 
Here at camp I have few resources, but I vaguely recall reading about a good bit of turmoil when Luther first nailed his list to the Church door.  I hope to work on this question, especially since it is such a paradox that so many Lutherans are leading the way back to the Church.

With a little luck, there next appear a link to Britanica:
britannica.com/topic/history-of-Europe/The-Thirty-Years-War#ref310545
By a curious coincidence I found that today's Saint DOC Lawrence was substantially involved in the numerous conflicts throughout the German region and so-called Holy Roman Empire, which was then basically about a thousand quite independent and fractious regional empires.  In 1555 the Augsburg agreement temporarily ended 30 years of war essentially between Lutheran and Catholic coalitions, establishing some free cities allowing both, and other regions exclusively Lutheran or Catholic.   In 1606 Fr Lawrence faced a Lutheran mob, but see if you wish how Brittanica tells the story.

How does Britannica tell the story?

I've gotten off your main comment, which I hope to understand better when I get home to review O'Brien's Lives of the Popes (kind of a nasty book but loaded with interesting data).  Like most of Brittanica, the Augsburg section's tone is very weakly Protestant, mostly agnostic or worse.  Efforts to seek reconciliation between the groups are essentially ignored, and Brittanica seems to enjoy reporting that Calvinists were also damaging both groups.

O'Brien's Lives of the Popes sounds interesting.

O'Brien is quite a terrible author to my recollection.
