Her dress was of cloth of silver, embroidered with flowers of gold. On his departure, his royal sisters would have borne him company, and even have fixed their permanent residence near his own. From early boyhood he had been trained to the duties of his station, and, when very young, had been intrusted with the government of Castile. At the same time, Joanna, Charles's youngest daughter, was affianced to the eldest son of John the Third, and heir to his crown. On it was placed a throne, or chair of state, for the emperor, with other seats for Philip, and for the great Flemish lords who were to attend the person of their sovereign.

    Typically early printed books and especially manuscripts. Even the Protestants, who had no superfluous sympathy to spare for the sufferings of the pope, were shocked by the perpetration of atrocities compared with which the conduct of Attila and Alaric might almost be deemed merciful.

She was destined to a more splendid fortune than her sister, as bride of the future emperor of Germany. The proudest aristocracy in Europe vied with each other in the display of magnificence at the banquet and the tourney: and sounds of merriment succeeded to the tranquillity which had so long reigned in the cloistered shades of Salamanca.

    If that were so, one would like to know how the historian got his knowledge of what was doing in the fortress the day and night previous to the a. Charles had endeavored to per- 28 et seq.

He accepted the task; and in performing it he has sounded the note of panegyric with as hearty a good will as if he had been a knight hospitaller himself. On the sixteenth day of January,in the presence of such of the Spanish nobility as were at the court, he executed the deeds by which he ceded the sovereignty of Castile and Aragon, with their dependencies, to Philip. Sheltered from invasion by the barrier of the Pyrenees, her people were allowed to cultivate the arts of peace, so long as they did not meddle with politics or religion,—in other words, with the great interests of humanity; while the more adventurous found a scope for their prowess in European wars, or in exploring the boundless regions of the Western world.

History of the reign of Philip the Second, king of Spain. By William H. Prescott ... book

The Works of William H. Prescott

When the emperor had mounted his throne, with Philip on his right hand, the Regent Mary on his left, and the rest of his retinue disposed along the seats prepared for them on the platform, the president of the council of Flanders addressed the assembly.

Four times he had crossed the Spanish seas, and eight times the Mediterranean. At the time of abdicating the throne of the Netherlands, Charles was still at war with France.

Previously uninterested in politics although he had predicted the Whig victory in[] Prescott supported and voted for the Republican John C. From this he had been diverted only by the situation of his unfortunate parent, and by the inexperience of his son.

But Charles positively declined these honors, reserving them for his two sisters, the queens of France and Hungary, who accordingly made their entrance into the capital in great state, on the day following that on which their royal brother had entered it with the simplicity of a private citizen.

While this makes it impossible to read all of the pages, it also indicates a probability that the text block has not been altered since leaving the printer. As by blood he was half a Spaniard, so by temperament and character he proved to be wholly so.

The news of this event, and the cruelties inflicted by the conquerors, filled all Europe with consternation. Prescott started to suffer seriously from rheumatism during the former year, and as a result he abandoned his residence at Nahant.

The experienced navigator would furnish a chart to the youthful pilot, by which, without other aid, he might securely steer through seas strange and unknown to him. It seems even thus early—at this period of mental depression—the emperor cherished the plan of anticipating the natural consequence of his decease, by resigning his dominions into the hands of Philip so soon as he should be qualified to rule them.

The very man on whom he bestowed the spoils of victory turned them against his benefactor. Indeed, it seemed to his Spanish subjects that he rarely visited them, except when his exchequer required to be replenished for carrying on his restless enterprises, and that he stayed no longer than was necessary to effect this object.

He begged them to believe that this, and no other motive, induced him to resign the sceptre which he had so long swayed. But, if you are thus governed, it will be your ruin.

At Burgos, which he entered amidst the ringing of bells and a general illumination of the town, he passed three days, experiencing the hospitalities of the great constable, and receiving the homage of the northern lords, as well as of the people, who thronged the route by which he was to pass.

The age of Philip, his son and heir, was also no longer an objection. When Charles ascended the throne, at the beginning of the sixteenth century, Europe may be said to have been in much the same condition, in one respect, as she was at the beginning of the eighth.

Among them was the duke's private band, including several natives of the Indies,—then not a familiar sight in Spain,—displaying on their breasts broad silver escutcheons, on which were emblazoned the arms of the Guzmans.

Nor was it easy to obtain access to those unpublished documents which constitute the best sources of information. It is supposed to have been painted by a discille of Alonso Sanchez Coello.
