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.
