NOTE - This is the central or root image showing links connecting all posted pages concerned with the Habsburg face or facies, generally known as the Habsburg Jaw (please see the related images for a variety of comments).  Personally, I prefer the rubric Habsburg Facies or syndrome and in the interest of brevity I rely on the acronym H+.  PLEASE NOTE companion videos - "Game of thrones - Bastards - Emperors - Genes". Please also see companion images which contain many other comments. One central question is "who is the real father of the Emperor Carlos I or Charles V.  

In this image are represented Maximillian I who demonstrates H+ facies (concurrence of a prominent lower lip, overgrowth of the jaw or mandible or or prognathism as well as an overgrowth at the junction of the cartilages and nasal bones (a hump of the nasal spine). Also represented is his son Felipe or Phillip (standing), later called "el hermoso" or "handsome" - he does NOT have signs of H+. Among the three teen boys, at the center, is represented the grandson of Maximillian and perhaps (paternity is in question), who became Carlos I of Spain or Charles V of Austria - clearly, he has the typical signs of an H+ facies. The spouse of Maximillian I, Mary of Burgundy (1457-1482) had none of the H+ signs (she is shown on the right edge of this image).  She became the mother of Fernando el "Hermoso". The children of Juana were taken away from her to be "educated" by Austrians (they did not learned Spanish). Juana is not in this picture neither in this painting nor in the sense of politicall power - the Austrian courtiers insured that she be removed from the scenario. One good way is the strategy "who will listen to the complaints of a "crazy" woman?) - a likely lie perpetuated by historians.
