•Sigismund, Holy Roman Emperor KG #127 1415.

•Albert V, Duke of Austria KG #153 1438.

•Frederick III, Holy Roman Emperor KG #176 1457.

•Maximilian, King of the Romans KG #239 1490.

•Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor KG #264 1508.

•Maximilian II, Holy Roman Emperor KG #351 1568.

•Rudolf II, Holy Roman Emperor KG #363 1578.
