If the

Vienna all the way, baby.

Why?

Why is this such a popular form of execution in Prague?
>>
>>585563
Looks cool.

>>585320

Prague is a beautiful city, but Vienna is probably better suited to be the capitol of a much, much bigger country.
>>
>>585563
It is not. Only during the first defenestration were the people killed by being thrown out of a window. In the subsequent two (only one of those has entered popular history however), the people survived and/or were dead already.

the HRE did not have a capital
>>
>>585588
It did.

The capital of the emperor's land was the capital, hence why most of the time it was Vienna.

no, the HRE did not have a capital
>>
>>586224
Depends on the time period and how you define it. The HRE was an organic beast where certain cities waxed and waned in importance like in the earliest periods trier could be seen as the capital
