The Spanish Empire – History Documentary

Posted by

The Spanish Empire, historically known as the Hispanic Monarchy and the Catholic Monarchy was a colonial empire governed by Spain and its predecessor states between 1492 and 1976.

France and Spain had a strong mutual hatred and the French would befriend any of Spain’s enemies. It became more of a war between France and Spain. Spain lost the war and territories and the right to be called a world power, bringing about the decline of the Spanish empire which the Anglo Spanish war helped cement.

The Spanish exploited resources and labor from their newly colonized territories. Southern America was rich in both timber and precious metals, and harvesting the gold and silver in the area made the empire very rich. … Spain had colonies on the other half of the world, too, including Africa and other parts of Europe.

For more than 300 years that power was Spain, a country so rich in the arts and sciences, so powerful on land and on sea, that its empire spanned continents and oceans. The flowering of Spain’s golden age is dramatically on view in a new exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum
