The Spanish Armada evokes images of age-old rivalries, bravery and treachery.However, the same Spanish monarch who sent Armada to invade England in 1588 was, a few years earlier, the King of England and husband of Mary Tudor.This important new book sheds new light on Philip II of Spain, forgotten sovereign of England.Previous accounts of Mary’s brief reign have focused on the martyrdom of dissident Protestants, the loss of English territory, but also sadly famous personality of Mary, which means that her husband that Philip remained in the shadows.In this book, Harry Kelsey unveils the life of Philip – from his childhood and education in Spain, for his marriage with Mary and the political manoeuvres involved in the marriage contract, to the tumultuous consequences of Mary’s death, which ultimately led to hostile relations between Queen Elizabeth and Philip, which led to the Armada.By placing particular emphasis on the period of Philippe Marie’s marriage, Kelsey shows that Philip was, in fact, an active King of England and took a keen interest in the rule of his wife’s Kingdom.Moulding of a soft light on Mary and Philip, as well as European history more generally, this book will be essential for anyone interested in the Tudor period reading.
