This costumer movie is well based on real events , these are the followings : Charles I was born in 1500 and died in 1558 . Carlos was the grandson of Ferdinand (Rodolfo Sancho) and Isabella (Michelle Jenner) and son of Philip the Handsome and Joanna I of Castile (Irene Escolar and Laia Marull) . Charles become the most powerful man in Europe, despite the hostility that surrounds it and the large size of its rivals such as Francisco I and Enrique II of France . He was ruler of the Spanish Empire from 1516 and Holy Roman Emperor from 1519, until he voluntarily stepped down from these and other positions by a series of abdications between 1554 and 1556 . Through inheritance, he brought together under his rule extensive territories in central, western, and southern Europe, and the Spanish colonies in the Americas and Asia . As a result, his domains spanned nearly four million square kilometers , and were the first to be described as "the empire on which the sun never sets". His reign was dominated by war, and particularly by three major simultaneous conflicts : the Habsburg-Valois Wars with France, the struggle to halt the Ottoman advance, and the Protestant Reformation resulting in conflict with the German princes . The wars with France, mainly fought in Italy, resulted in recovery of territory lost at the beginning of his reign and included the decisive defeat and capture of Francis I of France at the Battle of Pavia in 1525. France recovered and the wars continued for the remainder of Charles's reign. Enormously expensive , they led to the development of the first modern professional army in Europe, the Tercios. The struggle with the Ottoman Empire was fought in Hungary and the Mediterranean . After seizing most of eastern and central Hungary in 1526, the Ottomans' advance was halted at their failed Siege of Vienna in 1529.Charles was unable to prevent the Ottomans' increasing naval dominance and the piratical activity of the Barbary Corsairs . Charles opposed the Reformation and in Germany he was in conflict with the Protestant Princes of the Schmalkaldic League who were motivated by both religious and political opposition to him. He could not prevent the spread of Protestantism and although he won a decisive victory against the Princes at the Battle of Mühlberg, 1547, he was ultimately forced to concede the Peace of Augsburg of 1555 which divided Germany on confessional lines. Charles was only 56 when he abdicated, but after 34 years of energetic rule he was physically exhausted and sought the peace of a monastery of Yuste where he died at the age of 58 .
