January 2019: 500 Years Since the Death of Emperor Maximilian I.
Maximilian I, 22 March 1459 – 12 January 1519,
King of the Romans (also known as King of the Germans) from 1486 and Holy Roman Emperor from 1493 until his death, though he was never crowned by the Pope, as the journey to Rome was always too risky.
He was the son of Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor, and Eleanor of Portugal. He ruled jointly with his father for the last ten years of his father's reign, from c.1483 to 1493.
