Emperor Charles V, 1500-1558 by Wim Blockmans( Book )

"The world of the first half of the sixteenth century was exceptionally dynamic. Voyages of discovery made the world larger; science and technology were revolutionized; Christian thought underwent a powerful renewal; the population and economy of Europe grew. And in the midst of this constellation of change, one man - the Emperor Charles V - ruled a conglomeration of territory more extensive than that previously held by any ruler in European history." "What can one person, given an inordinate amount of power by quirk of fate, achieve? How much freedom did he in fact have? Did it help him reach his objectives? What unwanted results ensued from his actions? The relationship between the will of an individual and the power of structures in times of such mutability is at the core of Professor Blockman's enquiry. He brings to the task a range of languages - without which it is scarcely possible to do justice to Charles's widespread, linguistically diverse imperium - a keen awareness of the most recent findings of modern scholarship, and the fruits of a professional lifetime's reflection."--Jacket

Staging the Court of Burgundy : proceedings of the Conference "The splendour of Burgundy" by The splendour of Burgundy: Conference( Book )
7 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 129 libraries worldwide
"In the course of the fifteenth century, the reputation of the Burgundian court rose to an unprecedented level, catapulted forward by ever growing territorial ambitions and accumulation of wealth. This reached a climax during the reign of Charles the Bold (1433-1477), the living embodiment of the pomp and pageantry of the Burgundian court and a generous patron of the fine arts. Rather than focusing on a single domain, this volume aims to shed light on Burgundian court culture as an organic whole, between the start of the reign of Philip the Good (1419) and the death of Mary of Burgundy (1482). It is intended to provide a forum for new research from the fields of History, History of Art, Literature and Musicology."--Jacket
