Mojados revives its traditional weekend that commemorates the meeting that took place there in 1517 between the future Charles I of Spain and V of Germany and his brother Ferdinand
After two years due to the pandemic, Mojados (Valladolid) is once again reliving in style the meeting between two key figures in the history of Europe, the future Charles I of Spain and V of Germany and his brother Ferdinand the second, Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. The event commemorates the meeting between the two brothers in Mojados in November 1517.
Mojados is putting the finishing touches to the opening of its ‘Heart of an Empire’, the event commemorating the meeting between the two Habsburgs, one raised in Flanders and the other in Castile, who would bear the names of Charles the First – the future Charles I of Spain and V of Germany – and his brother Ferdinand, who after his abdication became Holy Roman Emperor.
To celebrate, a full programme of activities is planned from 1 to 3 July, ranging from the traditional historical re-enactment to a tapas fair and an exhibition of traditional musical instruments.
Likewise, and as a warm-up, from Monday 27th to Thursday 30th June, a cultural week will be held with the Emperor Charles V as the protagonist, with talks by Julio Valles Rojo -‘Charles V’s tastes and gastronomic habits’, on 27th June- and Carlos Belloso -‘Charles V’s general pardon of the Comuneros. V Centenary (1522-2022)’-, on the 30th; and the presentations of the books ‘Joan, the queen who slept under marble’, by Juan Manuel Olcese, and ‘Mühlberg’, by Víctor Fernández Correas.
