Charles V

Charles V, a great king and brave warrior, conquered many civilizations during his lifetime and these are some of his great accomplishments. King Philip I, Charles' V father, died in 1506 six years after Charles was born. At the time Philip had the throne of the Netherlands, but then Charles V inherited it with his mother at the age of six. In 1516 Joanna, Charles' mother, became the Queen of Spain and Charles left the Netherlands to become the King of Spain with his mother, since his mother didn't re-marry.
