Title -  Equestrian portrait of the Emperor Charles V

 

Description -  Charles V (February 24, 1500 - September 21, 1558), Duke of Burgundy and Holy Roman Emperor.  He was ruler of both the Spanish Empire from 1516 and Holy Roman Empire from 1519, as well as of Habsburg Netherlands from 1506, until he voluntarily stepped down from these and other positions by a series of abdications between 1554 and 1556.  Through inheritance, he brought together under his rule extensive territories in western, central, and southern Europe, and the Spanish colonies in the Americas and Asia.  As a result, his domains spanned nearly four million square kilometers, and were the first to be described as "the empire on which the sun never sets".
