    I know this is probably a gamplay issue, but I am sure that Italy did not exist as an independant state in th 11th century. I know that in the 10th century the HRE emperors Otto I-III had added the Lombardy and Naples to their realm, and I am pretty sure that this stayed the same for the next century. I know that under Barbarossa (12th), the HRE stretches all the way to the Papal states (and beyond)

    I will send this one to the History forum where we have some history buffs who may be able to help you more with this.
    Our genes maybe in the basement but it does not stop us chosing our point of view from the top.

    yep, italy did not exist as a unified state. it was put that way in the game for gameplay value.
