Collection Description

Scope and Content Note

This collection contains seven documents signed by King Henry IV (?) of Castile and Leon and Kings Phillip II, Ferdinand VI, and Charles III of Spain. These are generally documents that were sent to individuals. The first may be signed by Henry IV (half brother of Isabel I of Castile and brother-in-law of Ferdinand II of Aragon). [Please note that the date of this first document would reflect the date on the Julian, not the Gregorian, calendar.] The next three documents are signed by King Phillip II, son of Charles V (Charles I of Spain). Of these three, the first one refers to Doña Juana de Toledo, Duchess of Calona and her son Don Juan Fernandez Pacheco, Duke of Calona. The second is a letter absolving Martín Gonzalez, Captian of the galleon "Ocasión," of all charges. The third is a letter written to Don Pedro de Acuna, governor of Cartagena (New Grenada), regarding the salary of this same Martín Gonzalez. Documents by Ferdinand VI and Charles III address Cristobal Fernandez de Arce, an innkeeper who took out a mortgage on his inn. Finally, a document signed by Charles III sells the title Coronel del regimiento de Infantera de Ámerica, vacated by Miguel Porcel, to the Marques of Peñafiel. All dates are the ones directly preceding the signatures of the king and his scribe.
