Who’s to Blame for Lost Silver and Gold? Laments of Financial Troubles in Spain 1588

Stephen Mayeaux

One of the first to catch my eye was a set of documents from the Cortes, the legislative body of Spain. Published in 1593, Acts of the “Cortes” held in the village of Madrid in the year 1588 gives us a look at matters the Cortes considered important enough to address. Among other interesting subjects, these documents show concern over the kingdom’s financial difficulties.
