Personal Information

  • Name Carlos V. Holy Roman Emperor 
    Born 1500 
    Gender Male 
    Died 1558 
    • Charles was born in the Flemish city of Ghent and brought up in the Low Countries until 1517, where he was tutored by Adrian of Utrecht, later Pope Adrian VI. His three most prominent subsequent advisors were Lord Chièvres, Jean Sauvage, and Mercurino Gattinara. In 1506, Charles inherited his father's Burgundian territories, most notably the Low Countries and Franche-Comté, although, as a minor, his aunt Margaret acted as regent until 1515. In 1516, after the death of his grandfather Ferdinand, Charles became the first king of a united Spain (though he never used the title "King of Spain" - Spain then meant the Iberian Peninsula, and Portugal was a separate kingdom). He inherited his grandfather's realm, which included Aragon, Navarre, Naples, Sicily and Sardinia, and also became joint-king of Castile and guardian of his insane mother Juana. With the Castilian rule he also gained Granada and the Spanish possessions in the New World (in the latter overseeing the conquest of the Aztec and Inca empires in the Americas, led by the Spanish conquistadors).
