Heraldic Panel with Arms of the House of Hapsburg

South Netherlandish

On view at The Met Cloisters in Gallery 17

The Gravensteen at Ghent was the principal domain of the Hapsburgs in South Flanders. These stained-glass panels, thought to have come from this imperial residence, are part of a larger series ordered either by Maximilian I or Charles V. From left to right the arms are those of Maximilian I, Philip the Fair, Charles V, and Henry, count of Nassau.
