Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I faces his critics at the Diet of Cologne. He is in a strong position, having settled the Bavarian question, and with the recent death of his enemy Berthold of Henneberg, Archbishop of Mainz. He persudes the German princes to support him in an expedition to Hungary to assist King Ladislas II, who is having troubled with factionalism among his nobility. He also begins to reform the Empire in a way that points towards his most treasured aspiration, which is for a universal Hapsburg monarchy.
