Charles V (Spanish: Carlos I or Carlos V, German: Karl V., Dutch: Karel V, French: Charles Quint, 24 February 1500 – 21 September 1558) was ruler of the Holy Roman Empire from 1519 and, as Charles I of Spain, of the Spanish realms from 1506 until his abdication in 1556. At that time his realm, which has been described as "the empire on which the sun never sets", spanned nearly 4 million square kilometers across Europe, the Far East, and the Americas.
Specifications of the Sword Emperor Charles V.:
As the heir of three of Europe's leading dynasties — the Habsburgs of the Archduchy of Austria; the Valois of the Duchy of Burgundy; and the Trastámara of the Crown of Castile and the Crown of Aragon — he ruled over a Spanish Empire of extensive domains in: Central, Western, and Southern Europe; and the Castilian (Spanish) colonies in North, Central, and South America, the Caribbean, and in Asia the Philippines.
He was the son of King Philip I of Castile ('Philip the handsome') and Queen Joanna I of Castile and Aragon ('Joanna the mad'). His maternal grandparents were King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile, whose daughter Catherine of Aragon was Queen of England as the first wife of Henry VIII. Catherine and Henry's daughter was Queen Mary I of England, who married Charles V's son King Philip II of Spain. His paternal grandparents were the Maximilian I, Holy Roman Emperor and Duchess Mary of Burgundy, whose daughter Margaret of Habsburg raised Charles.
Dear customers from Switzerland, we are very sorry that we cannot deliver swords, daggers, sabres, maces, combat axes, flails etc. to your country. We meet with bureaucratic obstacles at all products that either are or just look as a weapon again and again. We receive all consignments to Switzerland automatically back with an explanation "subject to the import permit." Our logistics partners told us the following: "both goods that are sold only to persons over 18 years and goods that merely look as weapons are subject to import permit. (For example: toy guns are sellable without restrictions in Switzerland, BUT are subject to import permit issued by the Swiss authorities!)". We have found only the following solutions so far: (1) The customer secures collection at our address in the Czech Republic himself (his logistic partner can handle this procedure better), (2) the customer gives us a delivery address in the EU. The disadvantage is that we have to charge the VAT tax in both cases.
