Comment

Charles V (1500–1558) was a Holy Roman Emperor and Archduke of Austria from 1519 to 1556.

The Imperial Diet was the deliberative body of the Holy Roman Empire. It was not a legislative body in the contemporary sense; its members envisioned it more like a central forum where it was more important to negotiate than to decide.
