Emperor Charles V (Ghent, 24 February 1500 — Cuacos de Yuste, Spain, 21 September 1558) belonged to the House of Habsburg. During his reign, his empire grew into the largest European empire since Charlemagne. It covered all Dutch provinces, Spain and the Holy Roman Empire. Including the American and Asian territories, his Empire was even larger than the earlier Roman Empire. His rule marked the transition from the Middle Ages to the New Age.

The silver Carolus guilder (Carolus d'argent) was introduced from 1540 and had the same value as the gold Carolus guilder (Carolus d'or), namely 20 stuivers. After Charles V abdicated and the coin was no longer minted under his successor, the name “Carolus guilder” continued to be used. Eventually the term was shortened to guilder and lived on as a unit of account.
