2. Spain by Karl V

Зavershennya Reconquista and the opening of Columbus created prerequisites to transform Spain into one of the most powerful country in the world. King Ferdenand and Queen Isabella laid the foundations for its policies that Spain could claim primacy in the Catholic world. In addition, they laid the foundations of Spanish absolutism. Successor of their policy was ix grandson Karl Habsburg, who ruled in Spain under the name of the pits Becoming King Carlos IV, he obtained under vast knowledge of his power: Spain, Italy and possession in the New World. A parental lines for the German Austrian Hapsburg possession, Netherlands etc.. In 1519 the young Spanish King Charles I of Habsburg elected Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire under the name Charles V (1519-1556 biennium). Thus he objectsunited under his rule a huge empire. What kind uleslyky said that "Above the sun never sets."

 

The figure in the history of

These qualities it took quite Holy Roman Emperor, who led the exhausting struggle for preserve the unity of his vast empire, sought to create the world Christian state, to decide all cases in Europe have mostly America and Africa.

 

Having such a legacy, Carl V found himself in a very quandary. He had to fight three major opponents. The first of these was France, which found itself surrounded by possessions Karl V and did not want to have such a powerful neighbor. In addition, France itself was on the rise and sought establish its dominance in continental Europe. Another opponent was The Ottoman Empire, which continued its persistent attack on Christian Europe. That's been the Habsburg possession barrier, which vperlasya Turkish army. The third enemy of the emperor became the Reformation, which began at the start board Karl V.

In war, these three opponents and passed a long reign of Charles V. Although he repeatedly sought victories, was finally forced to leave the crown. His triumph was the most prominent defense of Vienna in 1529 the Turks. Majestic Karl plan V to revive the Holy Roman Empire as a world Christian monarchy late in time.

He had to ensure we come together with financials stable income taxes for broadly Karl V. Revolt began in Toledo under the slogan protect liberties of the kingdom. By price of minor nobles joined (Hidalgo) and large landowners (Grand), which hoped to restore his privileges and failing power of the king.

Last requirements turned away from the insurgency and most grants Hidalgo. This immediately took advantage Charles V, Who recently promised to consider their requirements. Fighting broke out between the cities and nobles. From St. junta " separated part of the city and created a "junta troops, which stated that" from now on war against giants, kabaleras (nobles) and other enemies of the kingdom, against their Property and palaces should be conducted by fire, swords and destruction. " Decisive Battle risen between supporters of the king and held near the village Vilyalar (1521) where the rebellion was completely crushed, and leaders of executed prisoners.
