Notes

  • -  The Prince notifies the archbishop that after the death of Edward [VI], King of England, the Emperor arranged for him (Philip) to marry his aunt [ sic ] Mary [Tudor] who had succeeded to the throne. The Emperor thought that this union would be good for his realms and for the universal peace of Christendom. The Prince, upon leaving for his marriage, is informing the archbishop of the marriage and of the fact that during his absence and that of the Emperor, his sister, the Princess [Juana] of Portugal, will be in charge of the government. He commands that she be obeyed like the monarchs themselves and asks the archbishop to pray to God to guide him and take him by the hand so that he might better serve him.
