Block Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor

Charles V was born on 24 February 1500 in Prinzenhof, Ghent, in the Burgundian Netherlands and died on 21 September 1558. He was one of the most powerful rulers in European history and a member of the Habsburg dynasty. As the emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, he ruled over areas in both Europe and America. Within his European territory, he had to focus primarily on the challenges of the religious conflicts between Catholicism and Protestantism.
