CARLOS V (1500 - 1558)

Carlos after being crowned Holy Roman Emperor

Carlos could speak 5 languages.  This helped him when he visited the countries that he ruled.  Because his empire was so huge he spent much of his time just traveling. 

He would take personal charge of any problem no matter where and would often personally lead his army into battle.  One time he was almost captured in Germany and just barely escaped.
