The Resilience of the Spanish Monarchy 1665-1700

Christopher Storrs

  • A fresh appraisal that radically revises our understanding of how Spain and its empire survived under its last Habsburg monarch
  • Emphasizes the importance of the considerable financial, military, and administrative efforts of Carlos II and his ministers in maintaining the Spanish empire at this time
  • Challenges the long-held view that Spain simply collapsed as a military, naval, and imperial power in the late seventeenth century
  • Shows how the survival of the Spanish empire was not wholly due to the aid of her allies
