The Arrival of Prince Charles. 1517

A little bit of history: 

After travelling from Flanders to the village of Tazones to take possession of the peninsular kingdoms, Charles V came into contact for the first time with the land of his Hispanic ancestors. His first journey across the Iberian Peninsula took him through Asturias, Cantabria, and Castile, to the town of Tordesillas—where his mother, Joanna of Castile, resided—and to the town of Mojados—where he met his siblings Ferdinand and Eleanor. It was his first great State visit, during which he met his Castilian family again.
