The Holy Roman Emperor Otto I was born on November 23, 912.
Otto I the Great was the son of Henry I and Matilda of Ringerlheim. He was Duke of Saxony, King of Germany, King of Italy, and "the first of the Germans to be called the emperor of Italy."
While Charlemagne was crowned emperor in 800, his empire had been divided amongst his grandsons, and following the assassination of Berengar of Friuli in 924, the imperial title had lain vacant for nearly forty years. On February 2, 962, Otto was crowned Emperor of what would later become the Holy Roman Empire.
