Fact of the Day: Roman Francis

When Francis I became Holy Roman Emperor he had very little power during his reign. He left that duty mainly to his wife the Holy Roman Empress Maria Theresa.  The Empress' father was the previous Holy Roman Emperor and thus she had the real claim to the throne as her husband only became Emperor by marrying her.
