Msg event.pngThe Iberian Wedding

Ferdinand II, king of Aragon, was married to the princess Isabella of Castile in Valladolid in October 1469. This was a marriage of political opportunism, not romance. The court of Aragon dreamed of a return to Castile, and Isabella needed help to gain succession to the throne. The marriage initiated a dark and troubled life, in which Ferdinand fought on the Castilian and Aragonese fronts in order to impose his authority over the noble oligarchies, shifting his basis of support from one kingdom to the other according to the intensity of the danger. Despite the political nature of the union, he loved Isabella sincerely. Many considered Ferdinand the savior of his kingdoms, a bringer of unity. Others despised him for having oppressed them. Machiavelli attributed to him the objectionable qualities of the Renaissance prince.

Msg event.pngThe Fuggers

The Fuggers were a peasant family of weavers from Augsburg during the 15th Century who rose through trade and transactions in money to Bankers of the Habsburgs and the Popes. Jakob Fugger the Rich (1511-1525) financed Charles V wars and election to the Empire, controlled European lead, silver and copper production and obtained a monopoly in quicksilver. Anton Fugger (1525-1560) had trading concessions in Chile, Peru and Moscow. However, the company declined by the end of the 16th Century because of state bankruptcies in Spain, family conflicts and lack of interest on the part of the heirs.

Msg event.pngState Bankruptcy

In 1557, on the very first year as Spanish king, Philip II was forced to declare the country bankrupt. Spain had for many years undercut its tax base and what was worse, had no control of the price-fluctuations from the inflow of American silver and gold. It was impossible for the Spanish minister of finance to forecast any repayments as all costs fluctuated volatile. The spending was based on the planned budget, but the inflow was irregular at best which made Spain spend more than it actually had, thus the Great Bankruptcies of 1557 and 1596.

Msg event.pngThe Iberian Revolts

In 1639 Olivares opened a campaign against southern France from Catalonia. If the Catalans had to defend their country, Olivares argued, they would have to support the army. This logic was lost on the Catalans. The peasants, urged on by their clergy, refused to support the troops. Soon there were clashes with the population, then riots and open rebellion. On June 7 the mob murdered the viceroy in Barcelona. In the autumn of 1640 Olivares scraped together the last available troops and sent them against the Catalan rebels. The rebel leader, Pau Claris, countered by transferring Catalan allegiance to the king of France, 'as in the time of Charlemagne' (Jan. 1641). French troops now entered Catalonia. Only when the renewed French civil wars (the Fronde) induced the French to withdraw their army was the Castilians able to re-conquer Catalonia (1652).

Msg event.pngNational revolt in Portugal

In 1640, Portugal had been under the domination of Spanish kings for 60 years, since the fall of the Aviz dynasty in 1578. However, in 1640, the Portuguese rose up in revolt and started a long liberation war against Spain. A long 24 years struggle, along with Spanish defeat in the Thirty Years War (1648), peace with France (1659) would lead to a renewed independence for Portugal, under the new Braganza dynasty, which would turn to Stuart England as an ally and protector (marriage of Catherine of Braganza with Charles II and transfer of Bombay to England as a dowry).

Msg event.pngThe Italian Revolts

In 1647, popular revolutions broke out in Naples and Palermo, and soon these two cities were in the hands of revolutionary governments. In Naples, at least, it was again the excessive taxation, imposed for Spain's war effort that had precipitated the rebellion. The Spanish monarchy, wrote the Venetian ambassador to Madrid at the time, 'resembled that great colossus that during an earthquake had collapsed in a few moments while everyone hurried along to enrich himself with the fragments.' In fact, Spain survived and even managed to hold on to much of its empire. The revolts of Naples and Sicily, directed as much against the local nobility as against Spain, were put down in 1648.

Msg event.pngThe Constitution of 1812

The Cortes, when they met at Cadiz in 1810, were dominated by liberals who wished to go beyond the mere support of the war effort and establish a constitution that would make impossible the revival of rule by a favorite like Godoy. The Constitution of Cadiz gave Spain a strictly limited monarchy (the king must work through his responsible ministers), a single-chamber Parliament with no special representation for the Church or the nobility, and a modern centralized administrative system based on provinces and municipalities.

Msg event.pngA new Spanish Capital

The unification of Spain has created a kingdom consisting of many former realms. [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] has served our predecessors well but it has been suggested that the small city of Madrid with its central position and welcoming climate would be a better location from which to rule all the Spanish realms. The existing Real Alcázar de Madrid could be expanded into a suitable royal residence while the city in general is still undeveloped enough to offer a blank sheet for the city planners of our kingdom. Let us build a new capital fit to rule a Great Empire!

Msg event.pngGrammar of the [Root.Culture.GetName] Tongue

Spain is a country of many languages and while some attempts have been made to create a standardized overview of grammar for the [Root.Culture.GetName] language it's far from the only language used in our administration even in the core of our lands. Recently a particularly well researched and thorough new Grammar for the [Root.Culture.GetName] tongue was presented to [Root.Monarch.GetName]. When our [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] asked what use this might be to the state the bishop of Avila offered this simple suggestion:
'After Your Highness has subjected barbarous peoples and nations of varied tongues, with conquest will come the need for them to accept the laws that the conqueror imposes on the conquered, and among them will be our language.'

Msg event.pngNew Testament Translated Into Spanish

With its strongly Catholic history and identity the kingdom of Spain has not seen widespread interest in the Protestant reformation. There are, however, rumors of small groups of intellectuals secretly meeting to discuss these matters in larger cities. It is therefore with some concern that news has reached our most catholic majesty that the New Testament has been translated into Spanish by our countryman Francisco de Enzinas. While the printing presses in Spain itself are tightly controlled by the state it seems the printers of the Low Countries feel no obligation to protect the tender minds of our subjects. The Holy Inquisition has asked us to make an example of any Protestants they can find in our country to track down those who would bring the book into Spain as well as any Crypto-Lutherans inside our borders.

Msg event.pngUnification of Spain

Up until now the Spanish [Root.Monarch.GetTitle] has technically been the ruler of many states that together have been known as Spain. With the recent centralization of the government, however, and the creation of a new type of Parliament in [Root.Capital.GetCapitalName] [Root.Monarch.GetName] has suggested that it is time that we abolish the power of the local Cortes of the Spanish states. While this will not be an easy undertaking the alternative is to risk having the local Cortes stifle our new Parliamentary system with their old provincial interests.

Msg event.pngThe Italian Wars

The Italian Wars were a series of wars between 1494 and 1559 that involved most Italian city-states, the Papal State and drew in major powers like France, Spain and the Holy Roman Empire. The earlier War of Lombardy against the Republic of Venice had left the Duchy of Milan seeking an ally and turned to Charles VIII of France for help. Using the House of Valois' old claim to the throne of Naples as a pretext when Ferdinand I of Naples died, Charles invaded the peninsula in 1494. With his army followed a large and mobile siege train that battered down the medieval city walls in a matter of days - triggering the reforms that led to the fortification style called 'Trace Italienne.' Despite tactical victories in the field, Charles became cut off from France and was forced to return home in 1498. The conflict over Italy was, however, far from over and the wars between Spain and France would go on for another 61 years.

The expanding Ottoman Empire has long been cause for concern for the Christian countries with interest in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans. With the fall of Tunis to the Ottomans they are now also present in the Western Mediterranean and seem destined to quickly supplant the weak Muslim dynasties that control most of the area. Interestingly enough the Emir in Tunis, recently ousted by Ottoman forces, has taken refuge in our country and is imploring us to retake his lost city. Perhaps his cooperation is just what we need to be able to stop the Ottoman menace before it is too late?

Msg event.pngPrivileges of the Mesta

The Mesta, a powerful association of sheep ranchers, are facing new challenges to their rural privileges; textile manufacturers argue that their use of land is wasteful and stifles new development. The price of Merino wool has dropped somewhat since the height of Mesta influence, weakening their political leverage. Though the economic importance of the Mesta has already waned, the nobles and clergy that make up their membership continue to wield a great deal of influence at court, and demand that their privileges be upheld regardless of the changing circumstances.

Msg event.pngTorquemada and the Conversion of the Moors

After having expelled the Jews on 3rd August 1492, the Catholic sovereigns of Spain considered it was time to look after the Moorish population of Al-Andalus, the southern part of the peninsula from the old Muslims kingdoms of Valencia and, above all, Grenada. With the renewal of the Inquisition led by Tomás de Torquemada, Spain became a country of religious fanatics where agricultural work and crafts were considered labors unworthy of Christians. Forced conversions followed as well as enslavement, torture and executions where many were burned at the stake. In the wake of these persecutions, many thousands left Spain.

With the fall of Granada the last Muslim bastion of the Iberian Peninsula is now in Christian hands. Among our subjects there are still, however, a large number of Jews, Muslims and converts of questionable sincerity known as Marranos and Moriscos.
In order to create a truly universal Catholic state it has been suggested that we force our Jewish population to either convert or leave the country forever with what possessions they have that are not of precious metals.

Msg event.pngWar of Las Alpujarras

The Christian clergy has always regarded the Morisco converts to Christianity with suspicion. This is all the more true in the recently conquered kingdom of Granada where the policies to encourage conversions have been too efficient according to some. Whether the Christian suspicions have been proven right or if it is a result of their actions to persecute feared Crypto-Catholics we cannot know but it is clear the Moriscos in the former kingdom of Granada feel they have had enough.
On the slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains the Moors have enthroned a new king of Granada and as the revolt spreads reports reach us of the destruction of churches, torture and murder of Christian priests and open defiance of our most Catholic kingdom.

Msg event.pngThe Expulsion of the Moriscos

Southern parts of Spain were inhabited mostly by Moriscos - Muslims who had converted to Catholicism under the threat of expulsion by Ferdinand and Isabella following the Reconquista. Many, however, continued secretly to practice Islam, and at times provided the Ottoman Turks with information facilitating Turkish raids on the Spanish coast. Persecuted by the Spanish Inquisition and subjected to restrictive legislation, the Moriscos rose in a bloody rebellion (1568-71), which Philip II put down with the help of Don John of Austria. The Moriscos prospered in spite of persecutions and furthered Spanish agriculture, trade, and industries. However, in 1609 Philip III, influenced by the Duke of Lerma, decreed their expulsion for both religious and political reasons, and the Moriscos to leave the Kingdom, only allwing them to keep what they could carry. Everything else was confiscated. The expulsions came to hurt the Spanish economy for generations.

Msg event.pngIgnacio de Loyola

Ignacio de Loyola was born in 1491 into a Basque noble family. He served as a soldier under Antonio Manrique de Lara, the Viceroy of Navarre - a Kingdom that Spain had conquered in 1512 - and was wounded in the Battle of Pamplona. When the French army, supporting the expelled Navarrese monarchy, stormed the city on May 20, 1521, Loyola was hit by a cannonball that severely injured both his legs. During the long and painful recovery, Ignacio read a translated version of Ludolph of Saxony's 'De Vita Christi' - a commentary on the life of Jesus that had a great influence on Loyola. He abandoned his military life and decided to devote himself entirely to serving God. In 1534 he and six companions formed the Society of Jesus, commonly known as the Jesuits, devoted to opposing heresy and actively promoting the counter-reformation.

He was devious and cunning leader, he involved Spain in the Thirty Years War alongside the Imperials and had the war with Holland renewed. This proved disastrous and precipitated Spanish decline, with secession of both Catalonia (reunited 1652) and Portugal in 1640. Under his governments, poetry, literature (Calderon) and painting (El Greco, Velasquez, and Murillo) prospered and Spanish modes and customs spread across Europe.

He was ennobled (1773) for the success of his mission. In 1776 Charles III appointed him chief minister. Under Conde de Floridablanca, as he was simply known in Spain, the Spanish enlightened despotism reached its peak, and his internal reforms, notably in finance, helped centralize the state. This, however, brought him into conflict with especially the Aragonese faction at court who accused him of embezzlement. After serving a three-year sentence he withdrew from public life. At the age of eighty he made a comeback into political life as he accepted the title of President of the Supreme Central and Governmental Junta that led the defense against Napoleon in 1808.

Suárez treated the sick and wounded, found water for them in the desert, and saved Valdivia when one of his rivals tried to undermine his enterprise and take his life. The city was founded in a fertile vally with an abundance of fresh water but also many natives who disapproved of the new settlers. Inés de Suárez took charge and defended the city against a native attack. Clad in a coat of mail, a helmet and a hide cloak over her shoulders, she rallied the soldiers on her white horse and encouraged them with words of praise. She led the men herself and the natives was driven away from the town. Her bravery led to a victory, and had it not been for her, the city would have fallen and the colonial expansion thwarted.

The Order has also used its influence more than once to deflect or prevent our political goals and many suspect they support autonomy for our colonial possessions. The defenders of the Jesuits, however, claim that they bring many indirect benefits to our colonies and that we will see far from beneficial long term effects from expelling the order.

Msg event.pngReforming the Colonial Administration

The Spanish Colonial Empire is one of the oldest in the world and as such has one of the oldest systems of administration. [Root.Monarch.GetName] has recently taken an interest in how the government of the colonies might be improved in order to increase our revenue extraction from them. The advisors of [Root.Monarch.GetName] are all men of the Enlightment and have suggested a number of ways to improve the situation, among other things the colonies should be allowed to trade freely rather than through a few select ports, Intendants appointed directly by the crown should be sent out to ensure the efficiency and honesty of our administration and tax reductions for vital sectors might stimulate the growth of the colonial economies.

Msg event.pngThe Valladolid Debate

The treatment of the native population in our colonies has become the subject of great debate among the [Root.Culture.GetName] intellectuals. A priest named Bartolomé de las Casas have made himself the spokesman of the natives and demand that we recognize their free will to receive Christ rather than force them into slavery and compelled conversions. The discussion has been going on for some time in various publications and has now culminated in a great debate being held in Valladolid at the request of [Root.Monarch.GetName].
Las Casas main opponent, Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, argues that the natives are naturally disposed towards slavery and that this is the only sure way to get them to stop their barbaric customs of cannibalism and human sacrifice in order to make them convert to the true faith.

Msg event.pngMiguel de Cervantes

In his early twenties novelist and poet Miguel de Cervantes served as a soldier in the Spanish navy. He was captured by Algerian corsairs in 1575 and kept hostage for five years, until ransomed by his parents and a Catholic religious order. In 1585 he published his first novel, La Galetea, but continued to support himself as a purveyor and tax collector. His break as an author came in 1605 with the publication of 'The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha' which became an immediate success and was later followed by a second part in 1615.
