Karl Brandi

Karl Maria Prosper Laurenz Brandi (20 May 1868 – 9 March 1946) was a German historian.

In 1890–91, he wrote his dissertation on the Reichenauer documents: ''Die Reichenauer Urkundenfälschungen'', which served as Volume 1 of ''Quellen und Forschungen zur Geschichte der Abtei Reichenau''. He followed his teacher to Berlin in 1891–95. The Munich Historical Commission directed him to complete the posthumous works on August von Druffel's contributions to imperial history and the Council of Trent, ''Monumenta Tridentina''. In 1895 he completed his own habilitation in Göttingen. From 1902 until his retirement in 1936, and again, from the outbreak of World War II until shortly before his death, he held a professorship for German History at the University of Göttingen. His study of Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor represented a ground breaking shift in the study of the importance of Charles's reign. According to Brandi, Charles V was the last monarch of Germany to have attempted the establishment of the medieval universal christian monarchy: in this, the Emperor was influenced by the legacy of his predecessors dating back to Charlemagne and by the amalgamation of Burgundian, Spanish, and Austrian court traditions.
