1681 Historia de la vida y hechos Carlos V, antique, very rare, XVII century
Historia de la vida y hechos del emperador Carlos V. Fortissimo, rey catholico de España, y de las Indias, islas, y tierra firme del mar oceano, &c. Charles V (24 February 1500 - 21 September 1558) was Holy Roman Emperor from 1519, King of Spain (Castile and Aragon) from 1516, and Prince of the Habsburg Netherlands as Duke of Burgundy from 1506. Head of the rising House of Habsburg during the first half of the 16th century, his dominions in Europe included the Holy Roman Empire extending from Germany to northern Italy with direct rule over the Low Countries and Austria, and a unified Spain with its southern Italian kingdoms of Naples, Sicily, and Sardinia. Furthermore, his reign encompassed both the long-lasting Spanish and short-lived German colonizations of the Americas. The personal union of the European and American territories of Charles V, spanning over nearly 4 million square kilometres, was the first collection of realms labelled "the empire on which the sun never sets".
