Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I


Holy Roman Emperor from 1558, king of Bohemia and Hungary from 1526, and king of Croatia from 1527 until his death. Before his accession, he ruled the Austrian hereditary lands of the Habsburgs in the name of his elder brother, Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor.

The key events during his reign were the contest with the Ottoman Empire, whose great advance into Central Europe began in the 1520s, and the Protestant Reformation, which resulted in several wars of religion.

On 25 May 1521 in Linz, Austria, Ferdinand married Anna of Bohemia and Hungary (1503–1547). They had fifteen children, all but two of whom reached adulthood.

Ferdinand's motto was Fiat iustitia, et pereat mundus: "Let justice be done, though the world perish".

He died 25 July 1564.
