In the year 1520, the world was a tapestry of vibrant stories and remarkable achievements. As we gaze upon the World map from 1520, we are transported back in time to an era of exploration and cultural marvels. One notable figure that graced this period was Catherine Howard. Her presence on the stage of history left an indelible mark. A woman surrounded by intrigue and controversy, her story unfolds like a field adorned with cloth and gold - captivating yet elusive. Meanwhile, Raphael, a master artist of his time, painted his final strokes before bidding farewell to this world in 1520. His masterpiece "The Transfiguration of Christ" stands as a testament to his genius and artistic prowess. As Ferdinand Magellan embarked on his daring voyage around the globe from 1519-1522, he meticulously mapped out uncharted territories. The wood engraving depicting Magellan's route across the Pacific Ocean showcases both bravery and curiosity that defined this era. In distant lands such as Peru's Cuzco in 1520, Montezuma ruled with grandeur while whispers of change echoed through its ancient streets. The echoes grew louder when Catherine Howard made her appearance once again - this time in miniature form - leaving us wondering about her connection to these far-flung places. Amidst all these events stood Savoy Palace; an architectural gem that witnessed tales unfold within its walls during the sixteenth century. It served as a backdrop for many significant moments throughout history. The year 1520 encapsulates triumphs and mysteries alike – it is a chapter filled with explorations into unknown realms, political upheavals entwined with royal scandals, breathtaking artistry frozen in time by Raphael's brushstrokes.
