Carole magnus eras cum solus regna tenebas
major ab imperio maximus a puero
Rex multos Caesar plures ditione tenebas.
Nunc omnes nato tu regis a puero
Roma tua est
Europa tua est
Asia, Africa tota quid plus ultra non potes omnia habes.
Charles(1), you were mighty, when you were only a king,
mightier as emperor, mightiest through your son.
As king you ruled much, and more as emperor.
Now you rule all through the hand of your son.
Rome is yours,
Europe is yours,
Asia and all of Africa. What more? More you cannot have: you have everything.
1.Charles refers to King Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor, and the "son" refers to Phillip II. Translation by John Briggs
