Charles V left his son Philip II a varied plurality of territories. Over many years Philip II succeeded in preserving the greater part of his empire from attacks by other powers. Nonetheless, the solidification of the structure of the Monarchy permitted an internal struggle between influential groups hungry for power. This article is interested in the creation of an ideology which would simultaneously advance the unification and the economic wellbeing of the Spanish Monarchy from 1590 to 1640.
