Chapter Summary

In 1546, at peace with both France and the Ottoman Empire, Charles V finally turned his attention to the Holy Roman Empire and the Lutherans. With his victory at Mühlberg, he temporarily imposed a religious settlement on Germany. A successful military campaign depended on a sound war chest, and the church played a prominent role in filling the royal coffers. In 1546, the Castilian chapters convened another Assembly to negotiate a subsidy with the crown. The Assembly prepared new instructions for verifying the veros valores, because the agreement of 1541 had expired. Through an examination of these negotiations, this chapter provides further information on the royal attitude towards the Assembly and indicates the limits of royal power. It examines the stratagems the crown and the Assembly used to negotiate a subsidy and discusses the internal dynamics of the ecclesiastical estate.
