Praemia pro validis

author of text

Praemia pro validis was written for the funeral of Maximilian of Buren in 1548. Maximilian, a hard-living and hard-drinking soldier, had been close to the Emperor through many of Charles’s military campaigns. He met his death with so much enthusiasm in his leave-taking that it became the stuff of literature.

Praemia pro validis fut écrit pour les funérailles de Maximilien de Buren, en 1548. Maximilien, soldat bon vivant et gros buveur, avait été proche de Charles au cours de nombreuses campagnes militaires; il mourut avec un tel enthousiasme que la littérature s’empara de ses derniers instants.

Français: Hypérion

Praemia pro validis wurde für das Begräbnis Maximilians von Buren (Maximiliaan van Egmond, graaf van Buren) 1548 geschrieben. Maximilian, ein Lebemensch und schwer drinkender Soldat, stand dem Kaiser aufgrund der vielen gemeinsam verlebten militärischen Feldzüge nahe. Bei seinem Tod hieß Maximilian sein Ableben mit so viel Enthusiasmus willkommen, dass er in die Literatur einging.
