Special plaque of Charlemagne, emperor of the Holy Roman Empire from the year 800. The plaque was designed to the ideal portrait of the emperor painted by Albrecht Dürer in 1513.
On the plaque is the Latin manuscript Carolus Magnus, the Latin name of Charlemagne, because at his court people mainly spoke Latin.
The emperor himself is depicted with the Emperor's crown and in full armour with in his hands the imperial regalia as a symbol of his power, in his right hand the emporial sword to defend his empire, in his left hand the stately apple with cross. The 'Apple' represents the world that the emperor thus holds in his hand with the cross as a symbol of Christianity.
A beautiful piece of medieval symbolism!
