Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of the conspiracy of the Ninth Duke of Medina Sidonia. The Duke of Medina Sidonia's conspiracy took place in the 1640s, a time of turmoil not only for Spain but for Europe in general. The early modern era is rife with internal political conflicts that for one reason or another led to violence. In the case of the Spanish Hapsburgs, violent acts of political discontent began with the dynasty's very arrival on the Iberian peninsula the comunero rebellion of Castile and the germanías rebellion in the Crown of Aragón and they continued throughout the following century.
