The School of Advanced Studies (IUSS) is the last step of a long lasting higher education process started in 825 A.C. when Lotharius I, Emperor of the Romans and King of Italy, appointed Pavia, the ancient capital of the Lombard kingdom, as the site for higher education. This process went through the foundation - in 1361 by Holy Roman Emperor Charles IV - of the Studium Generale, later on named "University of Pavia", and it later became the sole University of the Duchy of Milan. After the decadence during the Spanish domination, the University prestige was restored by Maria Theresa Sovereign of Austria and Holy Roman Empress.
