When his grandfather died in 1516, he became practically king of the Spanish dominions .
Charles V spoke in 4 languages, French , Spanish, Italian, and German/Dutch.
In Charles later life, like Henry VI, was carried around on a special chair. This was due to his gout. (Gout is a type of arthritis. It occurs when uric acid builds up in blood and causes inflammation in the joints.) http://www.theanneboleynfiles.com/charles-v-holy-roman-emperor/
