Description

Charles (Carlos) V reigned as Holy Roman Emperor, the first King of Spain (as Charles I) and as the Archduke of Austria. His rule was beset with problems, with the Reformation causing enormous religious unrest and the armies of France and Turkey constantly threatening the borders of his demesne. His campaigns in Italy inadvertently led to the sacking of Rome, which incurred the wrath of the Pope, but also gave him the leverage he needed to prevent the annulment of his aunt’s marriage to King Henry VIII of England. Charles outlawed Protestantism, but was unable to follow up the edict with action, due to continuing aggression from a Turkish-French alliance. After 40 years of rule, during which he overcame obstacles that would have felled lesser men, he abdicated and retired to a monastery. Use Charles V, Emperor, King and Archduke, to calmly thwart the attacks of any enemy, to hold fast, and to guard your rightful rulership over the Anachronism arena.
