Chapter Summary

García de Yllán's career as a provider of credit to the King of Spain is not an isolated case; it is illustrative of a number of Portuguese, Portuguese-Jewish and other entrepreneurs who did business with and for the Spanish monarchy in the seventeenth century. García de Yllán Barraza's life and business do not stand in isolation. There are specific and unmistakable differences between the enterprises of other Portuguese traders and his career and activities for the Spanish crown and the Swedish queen, but there are also ines- capable similarities to the businesses of others like him in the king's service—men such as Manuel Cortizos Villasante, Francisco López Franco y Feo and Fernando de Montesinos Téllez.
