Abstract
En los inicios del siglo XVI Maximiliano I de Habsburgo era emperador del Sacro Imperio Romano Germánico. Pocos años después, su nieto Carlos V gobernaba un imperio mucho mayor, pues a las posesiones alemanas, flamencas y borgoñonas que heredó de él uniría las Coronas de Castilla y Aragón y los dominios atlánticos del Nuevo Mundo. En la segunda mitad de la centuria, y mientras su otro nieto Fernando I regía desde Viena el Sacro Imperio, el hijo de Carlos, Felipe II, multiplicaba sus posesiones al incorporar a sus estados el reino de Portugal y sus colonias americanas, africanas e índicas. La construcción visual y simbólica del que sería el primer imperio global de la Historia, extendido por continentes y océanos, obligó a diseñar una nueva iconografía del poder que encontró en los mapamundi realizados en Sevilla, Lisboa y Amberes, y en los repertorios de divisas italianos e hispanos soportes adecuados para tal fin.
In the early sixteenth century, Maximilian I of Habsburg was emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. A few years later, his grandson Charles V ruled a much greater empire: along with the German, Flemish, and Burgundian possessions he inherited, he united the crowns of Castile and Aragon and the Atlantic dominions of the New World. In the second half of the century, while his other grandson Ferdinand I ruled the Holy Empire from Vienna, Charles's son, Philip II, multiplied his possessions by incorporating the kingdom of Portugal and its American, African, and Indian colonies into his states. The visual and symbolical construction of what would be the first global empire in history, extended by continents and oceans, led to the design of a new iconography representing the power in the planispheres made in Seville, Lisbon, and Antwerp, and in the repertoires of Italian and Hispanic emblems created for this purpose.
