This small glass roundel, probably created for an armorial window, depicts Otto IV of Brunswick (1175–1218), who served as the King of Germany, the King of Italy, and emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Although Otto lived during the middle Medieval period in Europe, the artist has shown him in the guise of an emperor of ancient Rome.
