Imperial Crowns of Charles VII

The imperial crowns of Charles VII at the treasury of Munich Residenz, Augsburg Crown (Left), Frankfurter Crown (right)

The Imperial Crowns of Charles VII are kept in the treasury at the Munich Residenz. Since the imperial crown was merely used as coronation crown, the Holy Roman Emperors had to use different crowns for all other purposes. While the Habsburg were in possession of own imperial crowns, Charles VII didn't have an own imperial crown when he got elected emperor in 1742. Thus he ordered two crowns to be made by different goldsmiths in Augsburg and Frankfurt am Main.
