Coming out of the civil war, and seeing that the Canary Islands could not be conquered by the Peraza, the Catholic Kings ordered an expedition in 1478. The Peraza protested that they had all the legal rights. The Kings, to avoid legal problems, bought back the rights to Gran Canaria, La Palma and Tenerife, that became the royalship islands, while the remaining lordship islands continued under feudal status for the Peraza family. In 1480 the Kings sent Pedro de Vera to conquer the islands, who using all available means, including war dogs, conquered Gran Canaria by 1483. Spain was getting her first experience at conquest and colonization in the Canary Islands.

In 1484 the Portuguese King D. Joăo II commissioned a group of prominent scientists to find a method for navigation outside European waters. The commission published the Regimento do Astrolabio e do Quadrante which contained a Portuguese translation of the 1250 text by Sacrobosco, Sphaera Mundi, on the spherical nature of the Earth as well as the Regimento do Norte which gve rules on how to use the Pole Star to determine latitude and the Regimento do Sol which provided rules and tables to allow sailors to use the height of the sun at noon to determine their latitude. It likely came into hands of Spanish mariners within a couple of years of its (hand-written) publication. Coupled with improvements in navigational instruments this information greatly eased the navigational problems that had bedevilled earlier explorers.

Action A, B of 142017 - Second Phase of the War of Granada for Castile

Description

The war of Granada started as a frontier war with a Muslim attack on Zahara in December 1481, that was responded by the Marquis of Cadiz in February 1482 with the conquest of Alhama, deep inside Muslim terrritory. The Kings gave orders of holding Alhama at all cost, as the first step in the conquest of the Nasrid emirate. Alhama held thanks to the help of the Duke of Medina-Sidonia, personal enemy of the Marquis of Cadiz, a clear demonstration that the war was going to unite the Kingdoms. At the beginning of the war, the Christians were not prepared for the offensive, and suffered several setbacks, but Granada was in a civil war, divided in two factions fighting each other and against the Christians, and after the battle of Lucena, the leader of one faction, Boabdil, was captured. Fernando decided to realease him on terms to keep the Muslims divided. Fernando reorganized the army, introducing artillery in great amounts, as a new weapon to conquer the Muslim strongholds in days instead of months. Through an extraordinary effort during the campaigns of 1484-86 the first phase of the war was concluded with the conquest of the Western part of the emirate of Granada, capturing Boabdil a second time. The pact made with him for his release included his renounciation to the parts of the emirate in the hands of his rival and uncle, Emir Muhammad XIII al-Zagal, and the surrender of Granada once it became under his control in exchange for a title and land states. The second phase of the war of Granada was then directed against the parts controlled by al-Zagal, the coast and the Eastern part of the emirate. After the fall of Baza and Almeria in 1489, Al-Zagal, defeated, abdicated, and Boabdil became in control of Granada. According to the treaty the war was over. But Boabdil refused to comply, forcing a third phase, the siege of Granada, that was stablished in 1491. The artillery was not used to preserve the city, and Granada will finally surrender in January 1492. 780 years of Muslim presence in the peninsula had come to an end.

Description

In 1486 a Genoese named Cristoforo Colombo offered his plan for finding a Western route to India to the Kings of Spain. His offer had been previously rejected by Portugal because they were following the Eastern route, and because it was fundamentally flawed. Columbus was basing his plan in the mistaken Ptolemaic and Biblic theories of Pierre D'Ailly and Paolo Toscanelli that considered the circumference of the Earth a lot smaller that it really is. Although it was difficult to find good geographers in Castile, the Spanish commission also rightly concluded that the plan was inviable, probably because the right measurement of the Earth's circumference had already been calculated by Erathostenes, and by Muslim astronomers, and this knowledge was known at the time. The outrageous demands of the sailor probably did not help him either. However, since Columbus had already gained some important supporters, Queen Isabel between them, the commission left the door open to a reconsideration after the war of Granada, and allocated some funds for Columbus.

Description

The situation in the lordship islands of the Canaries was specially bad. Their feudal status in Norman style, that did not exist in any other place of Spain, allowed their lords, Hernán de Peraza and his wife Beatriz de Bobadilla to dispossess their subjects, and even sell them if they were not Christians. Knowing that, almost all the Guanches had baptized, yet their lords sometimes sold them anyway despite priests protests. The authority of the Peraza in Gomera had been established through a tribal pact with two of the four tribal groups. When Hernán became the lover of Yballa, a young Guanche, he inadvertently broke a tabu, since she was a member of his adopted tribal group, and intermarriage within a group was not allowed to prevent consanguinity. Hernán de Peraza was killed, and the natives rose in rebellion, besieging his wife, who called for help. Pedro de Vera came from Gran Canaria and conducted a terrible revenge, killing many men and selling many women and children.

Description

Sugar was for a long time a luxury product. In the second half of the XV century, Portugal displaced Venice as the biggest European productor, introducing sugar in the Azores and Madeira. In Spain sugar was cultivated in Granada by the Arabs, but the conditions in the Canary Islands were very good for its cultivation. From the moment of their conquest, sugar was introduced in the islands, specially in Gran Canaria, Gomera, La Palma and Tenerife. Sugar production attracted many inmigrants from Castile, Aragon, Portugal, Genoa and Flanders, as well as black slaves brought to work on the plantations. Soon there were over 30 sugar mills in the Canary Islands. Christopher Columbus will take sugar cane plants from the Canaries to Santo Domingo in his second trip in 1493, introducing sugar production in the Antilles.

Description

The war of Granada started as a frontier war with a Muslim attack on Zahara in December 1481, that was responded by the Marquis of Cadiz in February 1482 with the conquest of Alhama, deep inside Muslim terrritory. The Kings gave orders of holding Alhama at all cost, as the first step in the conquest of the Nasrid emirate. Alhama held thanks to the help of the Duke of Medina-Sidonia, personal enemy of the Marquis of Cadiz, a clear demonstration that the war was going to unite the Kingdoms. At the beginning of the war, the Christians were not prepared for the offensive, and suffered several setbacks, but Granada was in a civil war, divided in two factions fighting each other and against the Christians, and after the battle of Lucena, the leader of one faction, Boabdil, was captured. Fernando decided to realease him on terms to keep the Muslims divided. Fernando reorganized the army, introducing artillery in great amounts, as a new weapon to conquer the Muslim strongholds in days instead of months. Through an extraordinary effort during the campaigns of 1484-86 the first phase of the war was concluded with the conquest of the Western part of the emirate of Granada, capturing Boabdil a second time. The pact made with him for his release included his renounciation to the parts of the emirate in the hands of his rival and uncle, Emir Muhammad XIII al-Zagal, and the surrender of Granada once it became under his control in exchange for a title and land states. The second phase of the war of Granada was then directed against the parts controlled by al-Zagal, the coast and the Eastern part of the emirate. After the fall of Baza and Almeria in 1489, Al-Zagal, defeated, abdicated, and Boabdil became in control of Granada. According to the treaty the war was over. But Boabdil refused to comply, forcing a third phase, the siege of Granada, that was stablished in 1491. The artillery was not used to preserve the city, and Granada will finally surrender in January 1492. 780 years of Muslim presence in the peninsula had come to an end.

Action B of 24005 - Western route to India for Spain

Description

Cristoforo Colombo submitted his plan for finding a Western route to India a second time in 1491. He was made to wait until the fall of Granada, but then the commission failed against his plan for a second time. However Columbus had impressed favourably several counselors of both Isabel and Fernando, and they lobbied in his favor. The main argument was that even if the risk was high, the investment was small and the potential benefits enormous, both in terms of money and in terms of souls that could be saved by Christianity. Isabel was very sensitive to this last argument and agreed to finance the expedition. The monarchs agreed to the exorbitant terms Columbus demanded: he would be knighted if he were to succeed on his first voyage, appointed Admiral of the Seas, made Viceroy of all the new lands, and on top of that awarded 10 percent of any new wealth. After 10 years of pursuing his dream he would accept nothing less, and after all, the enterprise was considered unlikely to produce much. The expedition was not expensive to finance, and the Queen did not need to sell any of her jewels. It is interesting to think that the most important geographical discovery of mankind was serendipitous. It came out of a grant application that was rejected by a scientific commission based on solid evidence that it was flawed and ignored relevant accepted bibliography supporting the opposite rightful theory, that India could not be reached by sailing Westward across an empty sea with available naval technology, but whose decision was overruled due to favoritism by influential politicians. Columbus will always defend against all evidence that he had reached Asia and not a New World. Awful administrator, he was, however, one of the greatest sailors of all times.

In September 1492, Alonso Fernández de Lugo landed in the island of La Palma with 900 men. Over the next months he subjugated the different tribes, until the last resisting chieftain, Tanausú, was captured by deception. The next year he landed at Tenerife, with over a thousand men, but suffered a great defeat at Acentejo at the hands of the Mencey Bencomo and his brother Tinguaro, losing most of his army. In 1495 he landed again at Tenerife with 1500 men. A plague had weakened the Guanches, and Bencomo made the mistake of presenting battle in the open, at Aguere. Their defeat was complete, and Bencomo and Tinguaro died. By December 1495, all the resistance had ended, and the Canary Islands were finally conquered.

Description

The Mesta was an association of sheepholders created in Castile in 1273 by Alfonso X the Wise. Its origen was the use of lands near the borders with the Muslims during the Reconquista, as no crops could be grown due to constant hostilities, while sheep flocks could easily be hidden during the algaradas or Muslim attacks. The substitution of the original Churra race of sheeps by the higher quality Merina, introduced in Spain by the Marinid berbers, increased the wealth of the Mesta and the Crown income, and the Kings started a policy of protecting the Mesta at the expense of agriculture and forests. Sheep flocks in Central Spain required summer and winter pastures and free routes between them, and the Mesta herds had the right to drink from any water and eat from any land, paying for that priviledge a quantity decided by the Mesta. They could also cut forests, and no land could be fenced along their routes. This policy reached its peak with the Catholic Kings, when the oldest member of the Royal Council became also the president of the Mesta Council, and when the regulations of 1492 were stablished. The taxes over the rights of pass were reduced, but they were shifted from the local towns directly to the Crown. By then the Mesta controlled 125,000 km of routes and half a million hectares (over a million acres) of productive lands. It had its own judicial system and its own law enforcement agents and was perhaps the most important corporate organization in Medioeval Europe. As is the case with other nomad populations, the shephards of the Mesta were the best soldiers of Spain and constituted the main source of recruits for the elite Tercios. The Mesta was for a long time the main source of wealth for Castile, as its precious wool was exported to the North of Europe, but some consequences could not be foreseen, and the production of cereals started to decline. The Honorable Council of the Mesta will last until 1836, and even today many Mesta routes are protected forever from urban development to be enjoyed no longer by sheeps, but by weekend excursionists. As a curiosity, the word mustang derives from mesteńo, or mesta animal.

Description

Medieval Spain was unique in Western Europe for the diversity of its population. In addition to a large segment of Muslims, Spain had the single largest Jewish community in the world, with three hundred thousand souls. In the 14th Century, however, anti-Jewish attitudes were on the rise throughout Europe. In 1290, England expelled its Jews and France followed in 1306. Spain began to experience an increasing anti-Jewish sentiment. It exploded in the summer of 1391 with angry anti-Jewish riots with hundreds of deaths. These riots led to major forced conversions of Jews to Christianity. Unlike the remaining Jews, the converts were welcomed into a full participation in Spanish society and they would soon become leaders in government, science, business and the Church. Over the years the Old Christians saw these converted families as opportunists who secretly maintained the faith of their forefathers. It was a strong mixture of racial prejudice and jealousy against the converts that would stir-up the Spanish Inquisition to prosecute the minority of false-converts. On March 31, 1492, Isabel and Fernando signed the edict of expulsion of all Jews in their Kingdoms by July 31. They were allowed to sell their properties and take their valuables, and money in letters of payment, but no gold or silver. The Kings intended to force the conversion of most of them, and indeed many converted, raising the proportion of Jews converted along the century to two thirds of their original population. But many also chose to leave, their numbers still debated, but probably over 100,000, most of them from Castilla, Toledo, Andalucia, and Murcia. It was a popular measure probably intended to forge a national identity for Spain, and also due to the belief that the Jews were a bad influence to the converts. The Jews that went to Portugal, Navarra, Provence and Morocco, suffered prosecution, violence and new expulsions, and the Kings of Spain allowed the return of those willing to convert until 1499. Those that went to Italy and Constantinople fared better. The economic consequences of the expulsion were negative as the Jews paid increased taxes, lent money to Kings and nobles, and administered properties. Culturally it was an even greater loss.

After the wars of Granada, many veterans chose to enlist for the Italian wars, following Fernando Gonzalez de Cordoba, later named -El Gran Capitan-. But others were atracted by the histories circulating over the Kingdoms about the new land discovered beyond the seas. Columbus had already brought several natives, and as much gold as he had discovered. Not much, indeed, just some personal jewlery from the indians, but enough to excite the imagination of poor hardened soldiers. According to rumors, one just needed a sack, and the indians would fill it with gold, making one's fortune in a day's work. Obviusly not everybody believed those rumors, but there were positions open in the expeditions to the Indias, and one could easily advance his career.

Description

Christopher Columbus's 1493 letter from Lisbon announcing the success of his voyage westward across the Atlantic Ocean quickly became one of the earliest 'best sellers' of European publishing. No less than eleven editions were published in 1493! They were issued across western Europe, in Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. Six more editions were published in 1494-97. Everybody was eager to learn about the new lands across the sea, and the letters of Columbus and Amerigo Vespucci, the 1516 'De orbe novo decades' of Pedro Mártir de Anglería, and the 1535 'Historia general de las Indias' of Gonzalo Fernández de Oviedo, contributed to change the perception of the world that Europe had. But more profound changes were about to come. Already Columbus brought a pineapple to King Fernando in his first voyage, and they would be followed by maize and potatoes, that with a caloric yield per cultivated surface double to that of wheat, would trigger an unprecedented population growth. The Columbian exchange drastically altered both worlds, but at the time it also greatly contributed to the prestige of the Spanish monarchy, that after unifying two powerful countries, and expelling the Muslims from Western Europe, had discovered a New World.

Description

On his first voyage, Columbus reached the Great Antilles, discovering Cuba and la Hispaniola (divided today in Haiti and Dominican Republic), were the natives were amiables. On December 24, 1492, his biggest ship, la Santa Maria, suffered damages beyond repair in la Hispaniola. Since there was not enough room for everybody to return, they constructed a fort with the ship's wood, called Fort Christmas, and forty men were left behind, with the promise of returning the following year. Columbus took some indians with him, together with fruits, plants, parrots, and gold. But another less innocuous exchange was taking place. The Europeans took with them smallpox and typhus to the New World, and from then on, wherever they went the plagues preceded them. About 50 percent of the natives in the New World died in the following decades, and possibly only 20 percent of the original population levels remained a century later. All the plagues suffered by Europe since the middle ages, concentrated in a single deathly wave that swept the entire continent. In exchange the Europeans brought a new disease to the Old World, syphilis. No women were allowed in the first expedition, and clearly Columbus sailors did not remain idle. Introduced by the Spanish sailors in Seville and Naples, the disease would be spread throughout Italy and the rest of Europe by the French armies of Charles VIII in his failed attempt to conquer Naples, being known in those days as the French disease. Columbus remained ignorant of having changed the history of mankind, and thinking only that he had found a better way to reach India, in his second voyage, he will command a big fleet with enough colonists, farm animals, seeds, and priests to establish a colony in la Hispaniola (Barahona and Tortuga). The first permanent European colony in the New World.

Description

The presence of Charles VIII of France in the Kingdom of Naples scared the Italian princes, who had in a certain way permitted the French King to achieve his goal of settling there almost undisturbed. Venice and Florence were worried about a French hegemony in the peninsula. French military presence wasn't limited to Southern Italy but also to villages of Tuscany and the Papal States, which previously surrendered to Charles VIII in his march towards Naples, strategically located to grant the French military supply line. The Pope, who previously granted the French King military access through the Papal territories and consented his stay in Rome, felt in jeopardy as much as to refuse Charles VIII being proclaimed King of Naples. Also King Ferdinand of Aragon couldn't accept the French presence in a Kingdom where he instead, in spite of Alfons V's testament which assigned Naples to the other Trastamara branch, could be the one to have claims there. The position of Naples was also important for the Aragonese trading in the Mediterranean. The Duke of Milan, who decisively affected Charles VIII's decision to settle in Naples, was now alarmed by the presence of French reserve troops deployed in the county of Asti, very close to Milan and at the order of the Duke of Orléans, who had dynastical claims to the Milanese throne. So Venice, Milan, the Pope, Spain and even the Holy Roman Empire (so firmly opposed to the French expansionism in Italy as to join any Anti-French alliance available) consequently formed the Anti-French league in Venice on 31 March 1495. Florence preferred to stay out because of her internal problems caused by Charles VIII's passage and decided to support France instead. Having heard about those arrangements and fearing that the confederates would isolate his army in Italy, Charles VIII decided to return to France for reinforcements leaving his regent in Naples. He had to move his army quickly through the Apennines as to reach the Alps and then safety, but the presence of heavy artilleries and carriages transporting the big loot he accumulated across Italy, slowed his march down. Only at Fornovo on the Taro River, in the Po Valley, Charles VIII finally faced the army of the confederates. Despite having lost all the carriages, he managed to reach the Alps gaining from his expedition to Italy nothing but his army decimated by epidemies.

Description

With the French entering Naples, the young King Ferdinando II, also called Ferrandino, had sailed to Sicily to receive the military support of his cousin, Ferdinand II King of Aragon. Starting from his base in Messina he then tried to reconquer his Kingdom with an Aragonese army led by general Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba. After an initial defeat against the French in the battle of Seminara, the King organized a fleet and, supported by the local population which was hostile to the presence of French troops, entered Naples retaking the castles which were still in French hands. Although having successfully helped his cousin Ferrandino, Ferdinand of Aragon distrusted Ferrandino's uncle Federico who succeded to the throne because of lack of Ferrandino's direct descendancy. Federico was a weak monarch whose unhappy diplomatic moves to appease France, even acknowledging his realm as a French fief, and to encourage diplomatic relations with the Turk would let the Kingdom be prey of foreign powers. Ferdinand of Aragon, who didn't deny to disconfess Alfons V's testament to keep the crown of Naples separate from those of Aragon and Sicily, feared that the defense of Naples, crucial to the Aragonese trading in the Mediterranean, could no longer be entrusted to his relative. He had to face the difficult choice of either going to war against France or splitting the Kingdom of Naples with them. When Federico refused a marriage between his son Ferrandino, Duke of Calabria, and Ferdinand's niece, Juana de Aragón, King Ferdinand definitively resolved to come to terms with the French King signing the treaty of Granada. The fate of Naples was then written.

Description

On April 13, 1499, Pope Alexander VI granted Cisneros the privilege of founding in Alcalá a college, that would become the University of Alcalá. He soon recruited the best professors available from all over Europe, and started his personal project at his own expense: the creation of the first polyglot Bible, in Hebrew, Greek, Latin and Chaldaic. The work was in six large volumes, the last one made up of dictionaries and grammars for the different languages. Six hundred copies were issued, and found their way to the principal libraries of Europe, where they had considerable influence on subsequent editions of the Bible. Meanwhile, the University and the city around it developed. The University of Alcalá (Complutensis, from the Latin name of Alcalá, Complutum) would soon become one of the main European universities and the main focus of intellectual activity in Spain.

Description

With the conquest of Granada, its inhabitants became Mudejars, Muslim subjects of the Kings. With the arrival of thousands of Old Christians, they became second class citizens. When the Catholic Kings returned to Granada in 1499, they could see that the conversion program was going nowhere, and authorized Cisneros to take charge. He started by confiscating Muslim books and promoting the semi-forced conversion of a subgroup of Muslims, the Helches, descendants of Christians that had been Islamized for generations. By Christmas 1499, the Muslims rebelled in the city and the rebellion quickly spread throughout the province. When the rebellion was put down in 1501, the Kings had the excuse to break the peace agreements and declared the forced conversion of all the Mudejars in their Kingdom or exile. Most opted to convert, becoming Moriscos or New Christians. They were allowed to preserve their customs and so peace was restored.

Description

King Federico III of Naples was unable to oppose much resistance, and the French entered Naples in August 1501. Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba met more resistance in the siege of Taranto, defended by Federico's son Ferdinando. Ferdinando surrendered Taranto to Spain on March 1502, and Fernando of Aragon did not keep Cordoba's promise of personal freedom to him, asking Cordoba to send him to Spain. His father King Federico III had already ceded the Kingdom to Louis XII King of France, who in exchange for it, appointed him Duke of Anjou. Federico III will die in 1504 in France. In 1550 with the death of his son Ferdinando, who was taken captive in Spain, the line of the House of Trastamara Naples will be definitely extinct. But the Kings had neglected to properly divide the regions of the Kingdom, leaving the Principati, the Basilicata and the Capitanata between both parts unassigned. The French denied that Capitanata (a land on which both Apulia and Abruzzi depended for food and flock wintering) was part of Apulia arguing recent administrative usage, and refused to allow the commissaries of Spain to collect the tolls on migrating flocks as the treaty stipulated. Soon incidents were taking place and open war broke out in July 1502. But the lack of decision by the French to attack when they had the advantage, the skill of Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba and the delays of Louis in bringing reinforcements will see the French expelled from Naples in one year. Completely defeated in Naples by Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba, Louis XII of France agreed at Blois in October of 1505 to cede his rights over Naples to his relative Germaine de Foix on her marriage to Fernando of Aragon. After the battle of Cerignola on 28 April 1503 Gonzalo Fernández will be remembered as el Gran Capitán. He introduced many of the reforms that would change the way battles were fought for centuries, and lead to the creation of the Spanish Tercios, and also trained most of the next generation of Spanish commanders.

Description

The colonization of the New World started in the island of La Hispaniola, where Columbus returned in 1493 to discover that the first settlement, Fort Christmas, had been wiped out by natives. But Christopher and his brothers Diego and Bartolome were very bad administrators and were distrusted by the Spaniards for being foreigners. Quarrels and rebellions abounded, and by 1495 everybody in the colony wanted to return to Spain. The colony was a sink for money, and Columbus, aware that his promises of riches to the Kings have not been fulfilled, insisted in slaving natives and sending them to Seville. This was a legitimate trade for a Genoese, but the Kings influenced by the church had given orders that only natives that raised in arms against Spanish rule could be enslaved. Worried by all this problems, the Kings named Francisco Bobadilla new governor of La Hispaniola in 1500, but he went as far as to put Columbus in chains and send him back to Spain. The Kings, horrified, released him, and named Fray Nicolas de Ovando new governor. Ovando ruthlessly suppressed every rebellion from colonists and natives, killing all the indian caciques (chieftains). He then efficiently administrated the colony, reducing the crown tax to 20 percent, stimulating the productivity and attracting new colonists. Soon the colonist population soared and the island became a good source of income for Spain, and the base for the conquest of the neighboring island of Cuba (Havana, Moron and Guantanamo). By contrast the native population, decimated by diseases and having lost the will to live under European oppression, initiated a decline that will end in their extinction. In 1507, Fernando el Catolico will name Diego Colon, son of Christopher Columbus, new governor of La Hispaniola, in substitution of Ovando.

Description

In 1503, the Catholic Kings reorganized their army introducing a new set of regulations. These regulations were the basis for further reforms introduced that year by two military geniuses. Gonzalo de Ayora realized that the military units of the time were too small for the Renaissance wars, and joined several companies under command of captains into a new type of unit that he called colunela (after Italian colonna or column, later regiment) under command of a new type of officer called colonnelo, and later colonel. At the same time, Gonzalo Fernández de Cordoba, was using his experiences in the wars of Granada and in the first Italian Campaign (1494-1496) to introduce further reforms. From the moors he had learnt to introduce the terrain into the battle equation. From the Swiss at Seminara he learnt the value of pikers armed with swords. He then added two important contributions, a strong sense of loyalty to the general and the King, carefully cultivated to motivate the troops, and the importance of combined arms and firepower for the infantry. He increased the size of his companies to 500 men, of which 200 where pikers, 200 armed with short sword and buckler for short-range combat against enemy pikers, and 100 arquebusiers. This distribution allowed the companies to quickly change from march to combat order, to respond to attack from all sides, and to be effective at all ranges. He then increased the size of his regiments to 12 companies or 6000 infantry, plus 600 cavalry and 20 pieces of artillery. His army could have one or two regiments, being the size of a modern division. These modifications and others related to lines of supplies, intelligence gathering and dynamic defences at encampments resulted in the Spanish infantry being the most modern army of its time and heralded the end of the medieval cavalry. The victories over the French armies that year were continuous: ambush of Barletta, assault on Ruvo, second battle of Seminara, battle of Cerignola, failure of the French invasion of the Roselló, and battle of Garellano. At the capitulation of Gaeta the first of January, 1504, the Kingdom of Naples was won for Spain by el Gran Capitán.

On November 26, 1504 Isabel died, after leaving the Kingdom to her daughter Juana, but entrusting the government to her husband Fernando in case she was incapacitated, as she showed mental instability. The Kingdom got split between partisans and opponents of Fernando. The King of Aragon decided to leave Castile, even though the new Kings, Felipe I and Juana, had not arrived yet from Flanders. But when Felipe died soon after his arrival, Cisneros became the Regent of Castile with the goal of obtaining the return of the King. Fernando, King of Aragon, became then Regent of Castile in the name of his now mad daughter, and rewarded Cisneros with the Cardinalate. In her testament, Isabel had asked her heirs not to abandon the conquest of Africa. The Kings of Castile had reclaimed their right to the integration of Mauritania Tingitana (then Fez and Tlemcen) since Alfonso XI because it was part of the Hispanian diocese, and Tangier had been a Visigothic province. Already Melilla had been occupied by the Duke of Medina-Sidonia in 1497. The question was if embarked as she was in the conquest of America and Italy, Spain could afford to conquer also North Africa. Cisneros wanted to pursue Isabel's wishes, while Fernando was more practical.

Description

When Isabel of Castile died, Ferdinand found himself in the position of being both King of Aragon and Sicily and regent of Castile, so that he could focus more on Aragonese ambitions in the Mediterranean and claims to Southern Italian territories as legacy of the Trastamara King Alfons V. The Pope who traditionally considered himself suzerain of all the Italian territories south of the HRE boundaries, islands of Sardinia, Corsica and Sicily included, has always reserved for himself the right to appoint Kings and Dukes whoever he decided as being trustful and deign of Papal investiture. He would have opposed any external interference in his 'sacred' decisions. After Ferdinand's death in 1516, Charles, King of Spain would continue his grand father's expansionistic policy in Italy.

Description

Before leaving Castile, Fernando gave Cisneros permission to attack Mazalquivir (Mers-el-Kebir), the port of Oran (Wahran). His motivation was the security of his Italian possessions from Barbary attacks. The Spanish expedition, with the costs advanced by Cisneros and under naval command of Ramón de Cardona, and land command of the Alcaide de los Donceles captured the fortress after a heavy bombardment. But Mazalquivir was difficult to hold, as it lacked water and had to be provisioned by dangerous sorties or by friendly tribes. After the return of Fernando, Cisneros lobbied indefatigably for another expedition to Oran. Fernando, who owned his post as Regent of Castile to him, agreed when Cisneros offered to finance the expedition. Command of the expedition was entrusted to Pedro Navarro, and it was carried out under the direct supervision of Cisneros, and under his personal banner. The Spaniards landed an army of over 20,000 men and besieged the city. Navarro soon blew the walls with his mines and heavy artillery bombardment, and in the assault the Spaniards inflicted 4000 casualties in the enemy, and conquered the city. Cisneros wanted to push the conquest inland, but Navarro, under orders from the King, refused. For almost 300 years, Oran and Mazalquivir would remain in Spanish hands.

With the French invasion of Milan, Venice had acquired Milanese territories east of the Adda River, and upon the fall of Cesare Borgia had also acquired Rimini, Faenza and Ravenna, against the will of Pope Julius II. The Venetians also held Veneto and Friuli, on which Maximilian of Habsburg had imperial claims. In late 1507 Maximilian announced his intention to travel to Italy to receive the imperial investiture from the Pope himself, and in early 1508 he assembled a big army to escort him down to Rome. He requested free passage through Venetian territories, but was told that he would be allowed passage only without his army. Enraged at the answer, Maximilian attacked Venice, but this decision proved unwise: Venice not only routed the imperial army but also seized the imperial cities of Trieste, Gorz and Fiume. A second assault by a Tyrolean force several weeks later was an even greater failure, forcing Maximilian to conclude a humiliating three-year truce. With Pope Julius II's assent, Maximilian took the title of 'Emperor-elect', thus breaking the century-old custom that the Holy Roman Emperor had to be crowned by the Pope. Shortly afterward, Venice provided a pretext for war by appointing her own candidate to the vacant bishopric of Vicenza. The Emperor, the King of France and Ferdinand of Aragon gathered in Cambrai in December 1508 to sign a treaty which seemed to be a defensive alliance against the Turk. In reality they meant to form a league to attack Venice and deprive the Serenissima of most of her mainland territories. Pope Julius II, after a renewed Venetian refusal to give the Romagna lands back to the Papacy, ratified the treaty and at the same time proceeded to excommunicate all Venetian citizens. Ferrara and Mantua, each with separate claims to territories held by Venice, joined the league as well. In April 1509 military operations started, and a month later French troops decimated one of the two Venetian armies at the battle of Agnadello. Even though in August 1509 Venice managed to eliminate Mantua from the war, she still faced the collapse of her strategic position and had by February 24, 1510 to accept the papal demands on the cities she had occupied in Romagna. However, Pope Julius II was still not satisfied and demanded that the war be prosecuted until Venice conceded control over their church to the Pope and compensated him for his expenses. The Council of Ten had privately resolved that the terms had been accepted under duress and were therefore invalid, and that Venice should violate them at the earliest opportunity. This opportunity presented itself shortly afterward.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

While Cisneros was received as a hero in Spain, Pedro Navarro was left on command of Oran, and in the next season he attacked Bugia (Béjaďa), in the Eastern side of Tlemcen. Navarro disembarked 5,000 men and a train of artillery, and after defeating a far more numerous Berber army, conquered the city sacking it. Since it was still early in the season, Navarro decided to attack Tripoli. An army of 14,000 men was prepared. The second Duke of Alba, García de Toledo, son of the conqueror of Navarre, and father of the famous third Duke of Alba, took command of the expedition. The city, the strongest in the campaign, was taken by assault, with over 5,000 casualties between the defenders. Immediately Navarro and Alba went to Djerba with the intention of capturing the island. After landing, they were ambushed in an oasis and 3,000 soldiers and the Duke of Alba were killed. Navarro returned to Tripoli. The Zayyanid sultan of Tlemcen, Abu Abdallah Muhammad VIII, worried by the continuous defeats decided to become a vassal of Spain in 1510.

Description

Fernando had agreed to Cisneros's policy of North African expansion to provide an alternative route to Sicily, and to squash piracy in the Barbary coast. However the conquest of isolated presidios (fortresses) in the coast had the exact opposite effect. Under the pressure of Spain, the authority of the Zayyanid rulers of Tlemcen was weakened, and pirates became independent and more active all along the coast. A Turkish pirate of name Aruj, who had become famous, received permission from the Hafsid sultan of Tunis to use the island of Djerba (Gelves) as a base, and he captured Jijelli in 1514 and took over Algiers in 1516 when he defeated the Spaniards. He then killed the local ruler and proclaimed himself sultan. He was known as Baba Aruj, or father Aruj. This was translated by the Spaniards as Barbarroja (Barbarossa in Italian, or Red beard). He became the nightmare of the Spaniards. In 1517 he supported a rebellion in Tlemcen, taking over it, but he was driven out by the Spaniards and killed in 1518. However the balance of power in Tlemcen was shifting towards Algiers, that continued independent under the leadership of Aruj's brother, Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa, who sought the help of the Ottoman Empire.

In 1510, Diego Colon, governor of la Hispaniola, gave orders to Diego Velazquez de Cuellar to conquer the island of Cuba. A veteran of the Italian wars, with three hundred men, and accompanied by Fray Bartolome de las Casas, Diego Velazquez soon took possession of the island, founding several cities and becoming the first governor of the island. Under his rule, the island prospered, and would become three hundred years later the richest province of Spain. The prosperity of the colony and its central role in the shipping to Spain, soon will make it the target of the French corsairs. The first settlement in continental America, in 1511 in Darien (Isthmus), would still depart from la Hispaniola, but Cuba quickly took over the central role of exploration and colonization thanks to the capacity and ambition of Diego Velazquez. He ordered the colonization of Puerto Rico, and several exploration expeditions. The most famous of these would be the expedition of Hernando Cortes in 1519 to the coasts of the Gulf of Mexico. But this expedition soon escaped Velazquez control when Cortes decided to disembark in the coasts of Tlaxcala and going beyond his orders, attack the Tlaxcalans, a nation subjugated by the Aztecs.

Description

In 1510 Venice submitted to the Pope, thus lessening the league of Cambrai. Conditions were hard for Venice, the Republic had to renounce her traditional power to appoint bishops as well as all jurisdiction over Papal subjects in Venetian territory and was to compensate Pope Julius II for his war expenses needed to recapture the Papal holdings in Romagna, while the Pope accepted the humble request of the Republic for pardon, cancelling the interdict. But the reconciliation between Venice and the Pope did not stop the French to continue the war against Venice with attacks to her cities in Terraferma. Julius II, in the meanwhile, had become increasingly concerned by the growing French presence in Italy and formulated plans, both to chase the French out of the Po Valley and to seize the Duchy of Ferrara, a French ally, with the intention to add the territories of Modena, Reggio and Ferrara to the Papal States. In realizing his plan the Pope immediately excommunicated Alfonso d'Este, Duke of Ferrara, declaring his fief forfeited for his remaining loyal to France, then he gained the military support of Venice, eager to recover her territories lost to the French a armies and hired an army of Swiss mercenaries to attack Milan as to isolate the French armies in Italy. However his plans failed as the French army managed to invade Romagna and occupy the cities of Bologna and Ravenna, supported by the powerful and celebrated artillery of Duke Alfonso d'Este. In addition, in response to Pope's switching sides, Louis XII of France convoked a Schismatic Council at Pisa as to have the 'Warrior Pope' deposed. Pope Julius II, having unsuccessfully pressed the Republic of Florence to refuse hosting the schismatic cardinals, proclaimed the Holy League against France and convoked a Council of his own to meet at the Lateran in Rome. The promise of territorial gains at French expense caused Ferdinand II of Aragon and Emperor Maximilian I to abandon their alliance with the French, and in October 1511, they joined the newly-formed Holy League together with Julius II and the Republic of Venice. In November, Henry VIII of England and the Swiss confederation joined as well.

From there he took the expedition that discovered the Pacific Ocean in 1513. Balboa was popular, but run into problems with the authorities for expelling the inefficient Major of the city. A new administrator was sent from Spain, Pedro Arias de Avila, a 70 year old veteran commander in the wars of Granada and Africa. Cruel and unscrupulous, he was jealous of Balboa and although initially forced to declare him innocent, he would later bring him again to trial, and without possibility of defense or appeal, condem him and have him executed. The authorities were displeased and named a new governor, but he died on the same day he arrived. Since the living conditions in the Gulf of Darien region were appalling, and the diseases made prey on the colonists, Pedro Arias founded in 1519 the city of Panama, the first port in the Pacific, and moved there the capital in 1524. The colonists of Isthmus had received tales of a fabulous country towards the South, named Biru, with cities made of gold. Two adventurers, Francisco Pizarro and Diego Almagro made plans for the conquest of such place, sailing South from Panama. Pedro Arias bought a share in the society, but having lost confidence in the expedition, due to the initial failures, he sold his part in 1526. The same year he was finally deposed.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

In 1519 the King commissioned the Portuguese-born Magellan to reach the Spice Islands by sailing west around South America. After many hardships he succeeded in reaching and then sailing across the Pacific Ocean. Soon thereafter he was killed while trying to subdue the natives on what is now the island of Mactan in the Philippines. After still more hardships, one of his original five ships, Victoria, commanded by J. Sebastián Elcano eventually made it back to Spain. Only 18 out of initial approximatively 260 crew members made return to Spain after 3 years of navigation. Magellan's expedition was the first to circumnavigate the globe definitively proving the roundness of the earth and the first to navigate the strait in South America connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Antonio Pigafetta, a wealthy tourist who paid to be on the voyage, kept an accurate journal of the trip and provided the only extant eyewitness account of the events culminating in Magellan's death.

Description

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) 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. Financial support from Jakob Fugger allowed young Carlos to win the Imperial crown over a more prestigious François Ier, something that the King of France never forgave him. However the rents of Castile were mortgaged for several years to pay back the 850,000 florins loaned by the Fuggers at high interest, and the added taxation greatly increased the unhappiness of the Castilians with their foreign King.

After the death of his grandfather the Emperor Maximilian I of Austria on 28 June 1519 Charles, King of Spain and Duke of Burgundy, became Holy Roman Emperor thanks to the money of his bankers (Fuggers and Welsers mainly) in a very expensive struggle with François Ier, King of France. Having proclaimed himself as the only legitimate heir of Charlemagne, the first Holy Roman Emperor, François Ier had announced his candidature to the imperial election. Commonly all the electors were bribed in order to obtain their much desired vote, but Charles 'bought' the Imperial title by paying the Great Electors and their emissaries the huge sum of 850,000 golden florins (equal to a value of 2,100 kilograms of gold). That money was advanced by his bankers in anticipation of several years worth of Castilian rents. Charles's election was also eased by the Army of the Svevian league, which impressed the doubtful electors when chasing the Duke of Württemberg, chief of the pro-French party, out of his duchy. That denied François his last remote chance to win the election. Being elected Holy Roman Emperor as Charles V, Charles (Karl in the German world or Carlos in Spain) of the House of Habsburg became suzerain of all the fiefs in the Holy Roman Empire. Amongst them the Duchy of Milan together with its sovereignty over the Republic of Genoa formed the beginning of the so-called 'Spanish Road' a critical route that allowed communication by land between the Habsburgs's dominions.

Description

With the discovery of the New World, the Spanish had to decide what to do with their new subjects. Unlike the Muslims, that could be enslaved, pagans were seen as not having rejected Christianity, and hence entitled to freedom and religious education. To educate and indoctrinate the indians, a feudal institution was transplanted from Spain to the New World in 1493: the encomienda. Within this system, a group of indians were entrusted to the encomendero, who theoretically had no jurisdiction over them, and had to provide for their instruction and indoctrination and could not mistreat them. In exchange the encomendero was to receive tributes from his indians, in the form of indian products or labor. The system could not work with an ocean between the rulers and the colonists, and soon the encomenderos were taking the land from the indians in their encomienda, and exploiting them cruelly, often to death. Although the production and trade of the colonies increased on the slave work of the indians, soon voices raised against the inhumane treatment of the indians and their likely consequences. Between them, the most ardent advocate of the indians was Fray Bartolome de las Casas, a Dominican priest, that had been an encomendero himself. But the encomenderos were the political force in the colonies, and they were not willing to renounce to the source of their wealth. They claimed that without indian labor the economy of the colonies would collapse. At the same time, the encomiendas served as a great incentive for the conquests of the continent, as the conquistadors granted the conquered land and indians as encomiendas to their soldiers.

Description

The power that the Castilian cities had acquired in 1470 with the Santa Hermandad ended in 1498 when the Kings sided again with the nobility and disbanded it. The nobility continued to erode the cities position during the regency of Cisneros in 1516, so the commons were upset with Carlos delay to come to his realm. When 17 year old Carlos arrived from Burgundy, he illegally took the crown from his mad mother without much opposition, but he also behaved as a foreign King in a conquered country, appointing only Burgundians for government and extorting money from the cities, thus alienating both the nobles and the commons. When the chance to claim the imperial crown presented, Carlos extorted and mortgaged Castile rents to pay the Fuggers before leaving for Germany. The Castilian cities then revolted and formed the Santa Junta, defeating the scarce Royal forces, while the nobility stood aside unwilling to defend a King that had ignored their demands regarding court appointments. The rebels appealed to Juana the mad for support, but she was unwilling or unable to help them. With no other choice they turned to Carlos, ready to accept him if he was willing to return to the country, marry, reform his court, remove the foreigners and lower the taxes.

In 1519 the artisans guild of Valencia was given permission to form a militia brotherhood (germania), to defend the coastline from Barbary pirates, but the guilds had a hidden agenda to use the Germania against the nobility. The arrival of a new viceroy in April 1520 precipitated the confrontation, and the guilds took control of Valencia. Soon battles erupted between the Germania and the nobles, spreading to Murcia and Mallorca. The Germania had also a marked anti-Muslim component, attacking the moriscos, sometimes forcing them to convert. This also eroded the economical power of the nobility, as the moriscos were their indentured serfs, and once converted they were freed from servitude. The King did not do anything, letting the nobles deal with the Germania. By March 1523 the Germania had been crushed and hundreds executed. The next year Charles issued a General Pardon.

Description

After September 1520, the rebellion spread to the countryside. The Comuneros were quite heterogeneous already, and the rural classes were markedly revolutionary and directed the rebellion against the nobility, that until them was unsympathetic with the King's troubles. It was a fatal mistake. The nobles reacted to the threat negotiating with Carlos the concessions they wanted and then formed a strong army. Although defeated in February 1521, they recovered soon, and on April 23, they crushed the Comuneros army at Villalar executing their leaders the following day. By February 1522, the last Comuneros surrendered and Carlos could afford to be magnanimous and issued a General Pardon to all but the main leaders. Carlos returned to Spain in 1522, married an Iberian woman, Isabel of Portugal, and appointed Spanish nobles to government. These were many of the Comuneros demands, but they were done on Carlos terms, after humbling the cities and restoring his relationships with the nobles.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

Description

When the Order of St. John was expelled from Rhodes in 1523, it underwent a crisis. Their possessions were being confiscated all over Europe, by both Catholic and Protestant rulers, their income was shrinking and their recruits stopped coming. They desperately needed a base, preferably by reconquering Rhodes, otherwise an island in the Aegean, but no one would help and Venice actively opposed them. Europe was at war and there was no place for their neutrality. The Emperor Carlos however came up with a master idea. He offered Malta to the Hospitallers. Malta was difficult to defend from the growing Ottoman power, but the Knights were a tough breed. They would give their lives defending his shipping lines to Sicily. In 1524 the Hospitallers sent a commission to Malta. Their report was very negative. The island could not sustain itself and the defences were very poor. Then Carlos decided to include Tripoli as part of an all or nothing deal. The Knights thought even less of Tripoli. They did not have the resources to upgrade its defenses. But having no other option, the Chapter General decided in 1527 to accept the offer despite the opposition of the French Langues. They still had hopes of recovering Rhodes, but in 1530 they gave up and moved to Malta, taking possession also of Tripoli. From then on, the Spaniards and the Knights of St. John would fight their battles in North Africa together.

Description

It was just a matter of time before the Ottomans attacked Malta. In May 1565, a powerful fleet from the Ottomans and their allies the Barbary pirates, arrived to the island and landed an army of 40,000. Against them were 540 knights, 400 Spaniards and 4,000 Maltese. Fort St. Elmo lasted 5 weeks of furious fights until almost all its defenders were killed. By then 600 Spaniards from Sicily had arrived to the city. The fighting continued all summer taking the lives of 5000 defenders with the Turkish loses three times higher, including the famous pirate Dragut. In early September, when the defenders were at their last resistance, help from Spain finally arrived under command of Álvaro de Bazán and García de Toledo. The Turks, low on morale, panicked and abandoned the island.

Description

Antonio Pigafetta belonged to a rich family of Vicenza. In his youth he studied astronomy, geography and cartography. He served on board the galleys of the order of St. John at the beginning of 16th century. In 1519 he accompanied the Papal Nuncio, Monsignor Chieregati, to Spain where he was presented to the Emperor Carlos I (V). There he heard of the trip of Magellan and negotiated to be admitted as a paying passenger, a supernumerary. In spite of initial difficulties with Magellan, he managed to gain his confidence and served as a chronicler and cartographer for him. During the trip, Pigafetta collected information about geography, the climate, the flora, the fauna and the inhabitants of the visited places. His meticulous notes were to serve as invaluable documents to future explorers and cartographers, mainly due to their focus on nautical and linguistic data. In the battle at Mactan, Philippines, in which Magellan was killed, Pigafetta also was hurt. Nevertheless, he managed to recover and was among the 18 on board the Victoria who accompanied Juan Sebastián Elcano in his return to Spain. After reaching port in Sanlúcar de Barrameda (Cadiz) in September of 1522, three years after his departure, he recollected his experiences in 'Relations of the First Round-the-world Trip', composed in Italian and published in Venice.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

Description

In debt with his German bankers, Emperor Carlos decided to grant Bartholomäus Welser a concession to exploit Venezuela, or as they called it, Klein-Venedig. Trying to quickly recoup the money, the Welser hired several young Germans to conduct expeditions to find one of those mountains of gold and treasures that the Spaniards were finding everywhere. They were Nikolaus Federmann (Nicolás Federman), Georg von Speyer (Jorge de la Espira) and Philipp von Hutten (Felipe de Utre). They conducted several German explorations departing from Santa Ana de Coro (Tocuvo) and became embroiled in the myth of El Dorado, but found no riches, and many of the Germans found death in the jungle. The Welser then turned to squeeze Venezuela as much as possible to try to recover their money, leading to complaints, and a lengthy trial, 1541-56, that ended in the revocking of the concession to the Welser.

But within two months of his release, Francis had retracted from his word and signed the league of Cognac, bringing into it the Pope, Milan, Florence, Venice and England. But for Giulio de Medici, Pope Clement VII, it was a huge mistake to take sides with France, as Rome was sacked by the Lutheran German mercenaries of Charles under lack of pay. Charles got his army under control, and Clement became his prisoner, and had to pay 300,000 ducats and surrender several fortresses for his release. But in the meantime, the Florentines had raised and expelled the Medici, declaring a Republic, and part of the Papal States also wanted to become independent. Now Clement needed Charles more than the emperor needed the Pope and a deal was struck. Charles agreed to restore the Papal States, to return Florence to Medici rule, to name Clement's illegitimate son from a black slave Alessandro Medici, il Moro, hereditary Duke of Florence and to give him his own illegitimate daughter from a Flemish servant, Margaret of Austria, in marriage. In exchange Clement will crown him as emperor and will become his lifelong ally. The treaty of Barcelona was signed on June 29, 1529, and Clement and Charles will meet at Bologna at the end of the year, with the crowning taking place on February 24, 1530 in the same city. Charles V will be the last Holy Roman Emperor to be crowned by a Pope. A consequence of this alliance will be that Clement will refuse the divorce of Henry VIII from the emperor's aunt, Catalina, even at the cost of driving England into Protestantism.

Description

Having found the Inca empire, Francisco Pizarro had to assure his rights to conquest it, as he was opposed by the new governor of Panama. He agreed with Diego de Almagro to equally divide the rights and titles, and travelled to the court with the Royal Fifth of all the riches they had previously found. Impressed with the gold, King Carlos I of Spain granted the right of conquest of Peru to him. But Pizarro did not keep his word to Almagro, and kept all the important titles and rights for himself. Accompanied by his brothers Gonzalo, Juan and Hernando he returned to Panama.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

Action B of 285075 - The Treaty of Barcelona between the Emperor and the Pope for Spain

Description

In late 1529, according to the treaty stipulated in Barcelona a few months before, Charles V came to Bologna to meet the Pope. Princes and ambassadors of all Italian states came to this encounter with the intention to confirm their allegiance to the Empire. Charles V used his strengthened political influence to definitely settle the Italian balance of powers and the conflicts between the Italian minors that deceitfully used to switch sides between France and the Empire. According to Mercurino da Gattinara's advices Charles V granted independence to all the imperial fiefs and, with the mediation of Pope Clemens VII, even to Francesco Sforza who was reinstated in his duchy in spite of his joining the league of Cognac. Pope Clemens VII instead, receiving the territory of Parma was to renounce his claims to Modena and Ferrara and to promise to arrange for a Concile in the next future to discuss about the Reform of the Church. Settled the political affairs in the peninsula, Charles was crowned by Pope Clement VII King of Italy on 22 February 1530 and Holy Roman Emperor two day later, in two solemn ceremonies arranged in Bologna. The imperial crown was a really big gift for his 30th birthday: Charles V resulted, in facts, the last Holy Roman Emperor in history to be personally crowned by the Pope.

Description

Pizarro had become a prisoner of his prisoner. Releasing him was out of the question, as he would immediately order the attack by massive armies, and keeping him was becoming more and more dangerous. Atahuallpa had ordered the execution of his brother from his prison, and the Spaniards feared that he could sooner or later order an attack despite the risk to his life. Two sides were split in Pizarro's band of men: while most wanted to kill Atahuallpa, some saw it as dishonorable and unlawful, as Atahuallpa had complied with all their requests. Finally Pizarro took the decision, and a mock trial was set up. Atahuallpa was accused of repeatedly rejecting conversion, incestuous relationship with his sister and killing his brother, all of them true, and sentenced to death. Since he was going to burn at the stake he accepted conversion to avoid a death that would prevent his eternal life, as the one he had given his brother. He was therefore strangled. The King of Spain was highly displeased with the killing of a monarch but it was too late to do anything about it. The decision, however, proved to be strategically correct, as without his emperor the Inca empire collapsed into the hands of the Spaniards.

The Northern part of the Inca domains still carried the scars from its recent incorporation into the Tahuantinsuyo (Inca Empire), followed by its devastating civil war. The Cańaris Indians after being defeated and annexed by Huayna Capac, had taken the side of Huascar, and had suffered almost extermination at the hands of Atahuallpa. The Chachapoyas, Cajamarcas, Chimor, Chancas and Huancas also hated the Inca, and they approached Pizarro, together with some of the defeated Huascar Cuzcans. They were all grateful for the killing of the hated Atahuallpa, and their Curacas (noble leaders) offered their alliance to Pizarro. In the way to Cuzco, more Chachapoyas and Cańaris that had been forcefully relocated there also joined him. The local help would be instrumental in the quick demise of the Inca.

The alliance against the Holy Roman Emperor, signed by the most Christian King François Ier of France and the Sultan Suleiman of the Ottoman Empire, resulted in attacks by the Turks every time France entered war against Spain. The most destructive raid was the one produced after the invasion of Milan by France in 1542. Barbarossa, on command of a huge Ottoman and Barbary fleet, raided the coasts of Italy, joining later a French fleet under command of the Duke of Enghien at Marseilles and both proceeded to attack Nice. At the arrival of Andrea Doria and Alfonso de Avalos, they retreated to Toulon for winter, where the churches were prohibited from ringing their bells, and Christian slaves were openly sold between Turks and pirates. While at Toulon, a fleet was dispatched to sack the coasts of Spain. After the peace of Crepy between France and Spain, Barbarossa returned to Istanbul, pillaging the coasts of Tuscany and Naples in the way.

Description

The great riches of the Aztecs and Inca excited the imagination of the Spanish conquistadors, that dreamed of finding another of such treasures. Sebastián de Benalcázar was one of the captains of Pizarro, in charge of conquering Quito, but when he arrived he found the place burnt to the ground by the Inca general Rumińavi, and no hint of the supposed riches. Rumińavi died without saying a word, but one of the captives spoke of a region towards the North, where a very rich chieftain used to cover himself in gold powder before bathing in a sacred lake to which gold offerings were also thrown. The name of the chieftain was El Dorado, or the gilded one. Soon the name was applied to his supposedly fabulously rich Kingdom, and Benalcázar started to prepare his expedition in search of El Dorado.

Description

After the peace of Cambrai, Carlos decided to reorganize his troops in Italy. In his reformation of 1534, he created the Tercios, based on the previous reforms of el Gran Capitán, while modernizing them. Each Tercio was constituted by 3000 men divided in three regiments and 12 companies and was commanded by a Field Marshall. For the first time it included an army command staff that took care of administrative and judicial tasks as well as participating in the military decisions. The elimination of swordsmen allowed an increase in the number of pikers and arquebusiers which carried a sword to fight at close range, resulting in an increase of the Tercios firepower, their main characteristic. The soldiers of the Tercio were all volunteers trained within the regiment giving the units a great cohesion that always allowed them to attack or retreat in good order, greatly increasing their efficiency. The first Tercios formed where those of Naples, Sicily, Sardinia and Lombardy. They were called the old Tercios. Later new Tercios were created, including the Sea Tercios as the first specific units of marines of the world, and the Flandern Tercios in 1567. The reformation was very successful, and over a century the Spanish Tercios were considered invincible. The Tercios will last until 1704 when they were dissolved by Felipe V to adopt a French regiment organization.

Description

After the pact between François Ier of France and the Ottoman Sultan in 1527, Carlos found his empire in a difficult situation. The Turks usally sent their fleets to ravage his coasts, coinciding and even coordinating with French attacks. To avoid complete Ottoman control of the Mediterranean, he took Tunis in 1535. The new Governor of Oran, Martín Alonso de Cordoba, the Count of Alcaudete, was ordered to lead an expedition against Tlemcen, that was shifting towards the Ottoman side. At Prevesa, in the Albanian coast, the combined fleets of Spain, Venice, Genoa and Papal States under command of imperial admiral Andrea Doria, were defeated by the Ottoman-Barbary fleet under Khayr ad-Din Barbarossa. Although loses were small and mostly Venetian, since Doria refused to fight, its effect was to give supremacy in the Eastern Mediterranean to the Ottomans. Besides the expedition of Alcaudete, something needed to be done to maintain Spanish supremacy, at least in the Western Mediterranean, and so Carlos ordered a naval expedition against Al-Djazaîr (Algiers).

Description

Historically, after returning from Spain, on January 18, 1535, Pizarro set about building a capital for the new viceroyalty of Peru. Pizarro built a city where none previously existed, the new city, called Lima, came to be known as the 'City Of Kings'. Here is where gold and silver began it's journey to Spain. The wealth of the city caused a massive influx of Spanish colonists, who eventually came to outnumber the natives in the area.

The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573.

Description

The legend of El Dorado became the personal obsession of Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada, a lawyer turned into conquistador, that in 1536 departed Santa Marta in the Northern coast of Colombia with 900 men towards the interior. The expedition was epic due to the difficulties found, and finally 178 men under his command reached the valleys inhabited by the Muisca, also called the Chibcha. They were one of the most advanced cultures in América, and extremely rich due to their mining of emeralds, copper and salt, that traded for gold to other tribes. In one year Quesada and his band had conquered the estimated one million Muiscas using the tipical conquistador tactics of using internal divisions and seizing the zipa (ruler) and using him as a puppet before putting him to trial and executing him. The treasure seized was amazing, and third only to the Aztec and Inca treasures. The royal fifth amounted to 70 kg of gold and 576 emeralds. However Quesada, now inmensely rich but with troubles with the authorities due to his mistreatment of the Indians, was convinced that this treasure was only a small part of what he could get if he was capable of finding El Dorado.

Action B of 191006 - The Empire strikes back for Inca Empire

Description

The new Emperor Manco Inca, was in fact a prisoner in his own palace, humiliated by the Spaniards. As the atrocities against his people became known to Manco Inca, he began to develop a hatred for them. Hernando Pizarro finally restored Manco Inca's freedom and dignity, but it was too late. Villac Umu counseled Manco Inca to send out secret orders for gathering weapons and large crop plantings in preparation for war with the Spaniards. He made his move around Easter 1536. Having won the trust of Hernando, he was granted permission to attend a ceremony northwest of Cuzco, instead he and Villac Umu convened a war council in the mountains. When Manco Inca did not return, Hernando Pizarro realized the mistake he made by letting him go, an Inca counterattack seemed imminent. Soon an army numbering in the tens of thousands was besieging the Spanish held city of Cuzco, and another Inca army was sighted heading towards the Spanish stronghold of Lima. Manco's warriors annihilated every relief column sent from Lima to Cuzco. An alarmed Francisco Pizarro sent frantic letters to every Spanish possession in the new world asking for reinforcements, and hoping that he could hold back the Inca armies until help arrived...

Description

It took many months, but finally help arrived in the form of reinforcements from Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua, and the Caribbean. Cortez sent supplies from Mexico, even from Spain the Queen sent 50 arquebusiers and 50 crossbowmen. And from the south, an angry Almagro was returning from his adventure in Chile, upon learning that his share of the Inca empire consisted of deserts and wasteland. This signaled the collapse of Manco's rebellion, who then fled with his followers deeper and deeper into the Amazon rainforest, and waged a low level guerilla war against the Spanish that would continue for decades.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.

Description

The alliance against the Holy Roman Emperor, signed by the most Christian King François Ier of France and the Sultan Suleiman of the Ottoman Empire, resulted in attacks by the Turks every time France entered war against Spain. The most destructive raid was the one produced after the invasion of Milan by France in 1542. Barbarossa, on command of a huge Ottoman and Barbary fleet, raided the coasts of Italy, joining later a French fleet under command of the Duke of Enghien at Marseilles and both proceeded to attack Nice. At the arrival of Andrea Doria and Alfonso de Avalos, they retreated to Toulon for winter, where the churches were prohibited from ringing their bells, and Christian slaves were openly sold between Turks and pirates. While at Toulon, a fleet was dispatched to sack the coasts of Spain. After the peace of Crepy between France and Spain, Barbarossa returned to Istanbul, pillaging the coasts of Tuscany and Naples in the way.

Description

At Francesco II Sforza's death, the Duchy of Milan reverted to the Empire and as Charles V newly rejected the French Orléans candidature to the Milanese throne, François Ier, King of France, planned a new military campaign in Italy against Charles V, this time with the help of the Turk. At first the French King attacked Savoy, because Duke Charles III refused French military access through his possessions, and annexed it with the assertion he had a dynastical claim to it. Deeply annoyed by this behaviour, Charles V sent an expeditionary force to conquer Provence, once imperial land. The expedition unfortunately failed while the scary Ottoman menace over Italy led Pope Paulus III to warmly invite the two contenders to make peace and form a Christian league in order to face the Turks. In 1538 in Nice a decennial truce was concluded with Papal support. But that cease-fire couldn't last too long. In 1542 Milan had to face a new French attack which resulted in an imperial heavy defeat at Ceresole in Piemonte, but although northern Italy totally fell under French control, at the same time English and Spanish-Imperial troops attacked France from both sides: even Paris was under menace. Lack of supplies and low troops reinforcements brought Charles V to eventually sign a peace treaty with François Ier at Crépy in late 1544. With that treaty France was recognized possession of Piemonte, still under French control and in spite of Savoyard legal claims to those lands, instead the Emperor was confirmed suzerainty over the duchy of Milan. That treaty also stated that François Ier had to renounce his claims to Naples, Flanders and Artois, while Charles V had to abandon any claim to the duchy of Bourgogne, ancestral Burgundian feud. It was also agreed that a diplomatic marriage had to be arranged between the youngest of François's sons, Charles Duke of Orléans and, either the Emperor's daughter (bringing Flanders and Franche-Comté as dowry) or the Emperor's niece and Ferdinand's daughter (bringing Milan as dowry). That would be by Emperor's choice. After two month's thoughts, Charles V decided to concede his daughter as spouse to Charles of Orléans, together with the dowry of Milan. However, in late 1545 the sudden death of Charles of Orléans liberated Charles V from the treaty's obligations and on 5 July 1546 he could invest his son Don Felipe with the Duchy of Milan. With this act, the imperial fief of Milan became definitively direct dominion of the Spanish line of the House of Habsburg.

Action B of 285045 - The Encomiendas for Spain

Description

Fray Bartolome de las Casas was not alone in his defense of Indian rights. Many other priests and some officials in the colonies denounced the abuses and atrocities. The Emperor and his court were horrified. After the conquest of New Spain (the Inca), Charles was displeased in the bloody way that it had been conducted by Pizarro and decided to regulate the treatment and rights of the Indians through legislation, according to the advice from Las Casas. The New Laws enacted in 1542 forbade any kind of slavery and forced labor, allowed ownership of land by the Indians, and stated that the Church had no authority over non-Christian natives. They also forbade the stablishment of new encomiendas and reduced the size of existing ones. The New Laws caused quite a stir in the colonies and it was predicted that they would bring ruin to the colonists.

Description

Under the unique colonization model adopted by Spain, the Capitulación, the conquest and colonization was not funded by the state, neither left to the private initiative, nor entrusted to monopolistic trading companies. The Capitulación was a contract by which the State retained full control of the conquest and colonization, that was to be carried out by private individuals under a credit system based on the hypothetical riches to be found. The Adelantado, who had to advance the cost, and was in charge also of colonizing the assigned territory, if succesful received land grants and titles, and retained 4/5 of the bounty to pay the cost and as profit. The crown provided nothing but paperwork. The system proved wildly succesful until it started to create problems to control such huge territory, and was carefully regulated and toned down in the Regulations of 1573. After that date, Capitulaciones became unfrequent.
