    Description: Henry IV, King of Germany and future Holy Roman Emperor, awaits Pope Gregory VII (Hildebrand) before the closed gates of Canosa in January 1077. He stands barefoot with his wife and son who also stand barefoot. Clerics and monks mock the king from above, while Gregory dallies with a woman. This woodcut appears once in the first edition (1563), as a paste-in, but twice in the second (1570), third (1576), and fourth (1583) editions. Its second use in those editions forms the sixth illustration in the "Proud Primacy of Popes" woodcut series, which functions as an appendix to volume one of the work from the second edition onward.
