Fine engraving, sheet 195 x 130mm (7¾ x 5"). Trimmed to plate, glued on album sheet at edges. Slightly foxed.
Bust portrait of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor (1500-1558), also known as Charles I of Spain. Looking towards the left, wearing a flat cap, embroidered robes and a chain with a hanging sheep. His dominions in Europe included the Holy Roman Empire, extending from Germany to Northern Italy, the Kingdom of Spain with its southern Italian possessions of Naples, Sicily, and Sardinia, and the Spanish and German colonies in America: the personal union of the European and American territories of Charles V was the first realm to be labelled as 'the empire on which the sun never sets'.
