Titian took inspiration for the equestrian arrangement of this piece from classic antiquity. It shows the Emperor of the Holy Roman-Germanic Empire as an inspiring symbol of power. It commemorates the battle of Muehlberg, which took place against the protestant troops of John Frederick of Saxony. Titian uses the technique of painting in heavy, dark colors, and emphasized the harsh and noble character of this person. Undoubtedly, a masterpiece.
