Abstract. The article discovers importance of Henry II Plantagenets letter to Frederick I Barbarossa, in which he acknowledges himself an Empires vassal. The artifact is considered in the context of medieval monarchies formation and peculiarities of the medieval written culture. The mentioned document preserves continuity with the early Middle Ages (Carolingian period), when the Empire conception dominated. The letter should be interpreted not as a legal document but as a representation of oral, often secret agreements that formed the basis of the medieval political culture.
Key words and phrases: , , , II , , medieval monarchy, medieval conception of Empire, medieval written culture, Henry II Plantagenet, the House of Anjou.
