Emperor: A New Life of Charles V

Drawing on vital new evidence, a top historian dramatically reinterprets the ruler of the world’s first transatlantic empire
 
The life of Emperor Charles V (1500–1558), ruler of Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and much of Italy and Central and South America, has long intrigued biographers. But the elusive nature of the man (despite an abundance of documentation), his relentless travel and the control of his own image, together with the complexity of governing the world’s first transatlantic empire, complicate the task.
