Description At the beginning, the article generally deals with kings who recognized supremacy of the Holy Roman Empire emperors as well as with rulers who were promoted to be kings by these emperors (especially in 12th century). The emperors were using a ritual by which they personally coronated the subordinate kings. These kings were the following: The Kings of Denmark, Bohemia, Polabian Slavs, Sardinia, Galicia, Armenian Cilicia a and others. In its second part, the article addresses the question of what position had the second bohemian king Vladislaus II. among these subordinate kings and what was the purpose of a charter, which he has obtained from the emperor Frederik on 18 January 1158 in Regensburg.
