It wasn't Roman because it was located in Germany and France, without any connection to Rome. It wasn't Holy because God did not make it Holy. And it wasn't an Empire because it did not conquer other groups of peoples.

It was never a nation, but rather a weakening collection of territories extending from today's Belgium to the Czech Republic and northern Italy. The last Emperor Francis II scrapped the title in 1806 in favour of a more unitary Austrian empire.
