Henry died in 936, but his descendants, the Liudolfing (or Ottonian) dynasty, would continue to rule the Eastern kingdom for roughly a century.
Upon Henry the Fowler's death, Otto, his son and designated successor, He overcame a series of revolts from an elder brother and from several dukes.
Emperor Francis II dissolved the empire on 6 August 1806, after the creation of the Confederation of the Rhine by Napoleon.In 768 Pepin’s son Charlemagne became King of the Franks and began an extensive expansion of the realm.He eventually incorporated the territories of present-day France, Germany, northern Italy, and beyond, linking the Frankish kingdom with Papal lands.Otto's coronation as Emperor marked the German kings as successors to the Empire of Charlemagne, which through the concept of translatio imperii, also made them consider themselves as successors to Ancient Rome. Kings traveled between residences (called Kaiserpfalz) to discharge affairs.
However, each king preferred certain places; in Otto's case, this was the city of Magdeburg.According to Regino of Prüm, the parts of the realm "spewed forth kinglets", and each part elected a kinglet "from its own bowels".
