Wiki: Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor Wiki

Rudolf II was one of the most eccentric European monarchs of that or any other period. Rudolf collected dwarfs and had a regiment of giants in his army. He was surrounded by astrologers, and he was fascinated by games and codes and music. He was typical of the occult-oriented noblemen of this period and epitomized the liberated northern European prince. He was a patron of alchemy and supported the printing of alchemical literature.

Note that this HRE is called Rudolf II as successor of Rudolf I who was German king (1273-1291) but was not emperor. WIKI  -30-
