When originally published in 1982 this was the first biography of Maximilian I to appear in English for half a century. It assesses a man who was Holy Roman Emperor, founder of the modern Austrian state and the grandfather of Charles V and Ferdinand I. Maximilian was a key figure and an appreciation of his role and career is vital to an overall view of European society and politics at the dawning of modern times. The book gives an insight into Maximilian’s style of government and reveals the underlying personal factors that determined many of the key decisions which influenced politics and control during his reign.
