Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
Five in the middle is seen;
First of all letters, the first of all figures,
Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.


Answer

Solution:
Five hundred begins it, five hundred ends it,
D = Roman numeral for 500

Five in the middle is seen;
V = Roman numeral for 5

First of all letters, the first of all figures,
A = the first letter
I = the first figure (number - in Roman numerals)

Take up their stations between.
Join all together, and then you will bring
Before you the name of an eminent king.
