I have collected a full set of engravings of Emperor Charles V in procession on his coronation by Pope Clement VII at Bologna, 1530 by Hogenberg

Nicolaas Hogenberg's 'Emperor Charles V in procession after his coronation by Pope Clement VII at Bologna', 1530

George Gush uses the Hogenberg plate of the guards as the source for the Papal Guard. This is the only one of the 38 that does not have a latin inscription. Gush calls them Germans but there is nothing to indicate this. There are Bolognese infantry in classical costume in the early part of the procession and Landsknechts and Spanish infantry under Antonio de Leyva near the end, so the guards in the middle around Pope Clement VII and Emperor Charles V, wearing Sajones, are either Papal or Imperial guards.

Other plates include:
Bolognese banners
Papal banners
Mercenary Knights
Knights, Landsknechts and Spanish Infantry
Artillery

As usual a fine contribution.
