Royal Favouritism and the Governing Elite of the Spanish Monarchy, 1640-1665

Alistair Malcolm

Oxford Historical Monographs

  • A wide ranging study of the court and government of the Spanish Monarchy during the mid-seventeenth century
  • Offers a readable account of the second half of Philip IV's reign, a subject that has received very little extensive treatment in any language
  • Uses the regime of don Luis Mendez de Haro as a case study, but also looks as the wider court and the interaction of personalities and politics
  • Presents debates current in Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese scholarship for an Anglophone readership
  • Contributes to the debate on the general European crisis of the mid-seventeenth century
