Title:
Instruccion de Carlos Quinto a Phelipe Segundo su hijo, dada en el año de 1543; Adbertencias del Emperador Carlos Quinto de Alemania y Primero de España [manuscript].
Abstract:
Collection of letters and instructions given by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, to his young son Philip II, future King of Spain, while the former was away fighting the Protestants in Germany. The letters cover matters of state, political, and military governance, such as the administration of justice; dealing with councils, advisers and other officials; and the proper conduct towards the church and certain individuals. Of particular interest is the second letter (f. 30r-77r), which Charles V tells his son to keep secret, and in which he reveals to his son his doubts and reservations about the campaigns being fought in Germany and other parts of the empire. He explains to his son that he is compelled to wage these campaigns in order to ensure that the inheritance he leaves to him will be no less than that which he himself inherited, but confesses that he may not succeed and asks for forgiveness in advance.
