Charles V: Ruling Empires
5 × 30’ (SPA, ENG subs)
Charles V ruled over the Holy Roman Empire and the Spanish Empire, as well as the lands of the former Duchy of Burgundy. His empire towered from South America throughout Europe up to Asia. Ever since the tender age of 15, Charles V was the first King of Spain and the first Habsburg emperor to achieve the status of world power. The vast number of titles he held were a prominent sign of his great power, but also led to numerous conflicts and wars.
This five part series takes its viewers on Charles' first trip to Castile, his rivalry with Luther and his landing in Laredo on his very last trip through Spain.
We accompany him from his birth in Ghent in 1500, on his many travels through his empire until his death in the Monastery of Yuste in 1558. A group of national and international history consultants will provide the correct interpretation of the imperial journey with their own interventions throughout the series which captivates through its extensive reenactments by famous actors like Mario Zorilla playing the role of Charles and with the use of more than a thousand extras.
