Spain emerged at the beginning of the 16th Century as the principal power of Europe. The completion of the reconquest of Spain from the Moors, the union of Spanish and Austrian territories, and the discovery of the New World created the first super-power since the Roman Empire. However, this unchecked and fortuitous expansion while it brought great power it brought also responsibilities that the newly united country could manage with great difficulties. In this course, we will analyze the forces that shaped Spain from a political, economic, religious, and cultural perspective, in order to arrive at a better understanding of the rise and fall of the Spanish monarchy.
