Emperor Charles V

Post  princess garnet on Wed Feb 27, 2013 8:20 pm

A profile of Holy Emperor Charles V by Mad Monarchist:
http://madmonarchist.blogspot.com/2013/02/monarch-profile-holy-roman-emperor.html
I'm posting here because he was the last German emperor crowned by the Pope on February 24, 1530.

Off hand in fiction--he has some "stage time" in For a Queen's Love (formerly titled The Spanish Bridegroom) by Jean Plaidy. If you've read The Last Queen by CW Gortner, Charles appears as a child in a small role.

My old high school Euro teacher called him "Captain Catholocism" due to his devotion to the Catholic cause against the Protestant reformation.

What this title ignores is how he kidnapped the pope that one time but I guess accidents happen...

It was a stormy life. Yes, the infamous Sack of Rome happened at the hands of his mercenaries, one of the reasons Charles V retired to a monastery.

http://teaattrianon.blogspot.com/2010/05/sack-of-rome-1527.html To quote the Mad Monarchist:
The violence was horrific, the cruelties committed were extreme and the desecrations unspeakable. It was certainly one of the most shameful episodes in the history of Europe and is generally considered as the end of the glorious Renaissance period. However, there was a shining example in this devastating atrocity and that was the immense heroism and sacrifice of the Papal Swiss Guard. All but a handful of these brave men were massacred, fighting to the death, overwhelmed and fighting up the very steps of St Peter’s Basilica; buying time with their lives for the handful that remained to escort Pope Clement VII to safety in Castel Sant’Angelo.
