The main reason why Gregorian calendar was implemented was because Pope Gregory XIII wanted to change the Easter date to be in sync with the time it was celebrated by the early church. This happened in 1582.
The Roman Emperor's system miscalculated the length of the year by 11 minutes which made the calendar fall out of sync with the season.
