Charles V and shipwreck?

# Posted: 20 Jun 2013 13:12 Reply Quote Writing to Nicolaus von Amsdorf on April 6,1543 Luther shares the rumor that the Kaiser lives: "Wollte doch Gotte, dass er in Gott lebte. Ich fuercte, dass die Seefishce vor einem Jahre schon laengst seinen Leib verzehrt haben."And again to Amsdorf on 18 August 1543:"Dass der Kaiser am Leben sei ,.. ich wollte lieber, dass err viellmehr am Leben sei als dass er todt sei." Better Charles V than Ferdinand. Looks like Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, decided to wait until 1556 for demise after abdicating.Interesting, devout ruler!

Anyone?
