Imperial Circles (c. 1512). At the start of the early modern era, efforts were made to strengthen the government of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. Under Emperor Maximilian I (1493-1519), large areas of the Empire were organized into ten Imperial Circles [Reichskreise], each of which was headed by two princes, normally the highest-ranking secular and ecclesiastical members of the Circle. The tasks of the Imperial Circles included safeguarding the “Perpetual Public Peace” proclaimed in 1495, enforcing verdicts passed by the Imperial Chamber Court [Reichskammergericht] established in 1495, supervising minting, collecting Imperial taxes, and raising troops for the Empire. The Imperial Circles did not encroach upon the territorial integrity of the existing duchies and counties.

The Circles strengthened the princes’ predominant role in the Imperial Diet [Reichstag], an enduring characteristic of the Imperial constitution, which did not develop further in the direction of a centralized or federal nation-state.
