Description

    Charles VI Document Signed "Charles" in gold ink as Holy Roman Emperor, four pages in German, 8" x 12", March 29, 1712, n.p., with paper seal. Charles VI, (1685 -1740) was Holy Roman Emperor from 1711 to 1740. He first assumed the royal title Charles III of Aragon and Castile, but changed his name shortly after, on acceding the Austrian throne. He was the contracted heir of the Spanish Hapsburgs. When Charles II of Spain made Philip V his heir, Louis XIV violated the contract. The dispute for the crown of Spain led to the War of the Spanish Succession. After his older brother Joseph I died suddenly, he had to return to Austria to take over the Emperor's throne. In 1711, he was made Holy Roman Emperor in Frankfurt. Although Charles seems to have been clumsy in political affairs, the Austrian monarchy reached its widest expansion during his reign. In fine condition.
