1The name of five kings of Spain.
1.1 Philip I ( 1478–1506), reigned 1504–06; known as Philip the Handsome. Son of the Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian I, in 1496 Philip married the infanta Joanna, daughter of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile. After Isabella’s death he ruled Castile jointly with Joanna, establishing the Habsburgs as the ruling dynasty in Spain.
1.2 Philip II ( 1527–98), son of Charles I (Holy Roman Emperor Charles V); reigned 1556–98. Philip came to the throne following his father’s abdication. His reign was dominated by an anti-Protestant crusade that exhausted the Spanish economy. His Armada against England (1588) ended in defeat.
1.3 Philip III ( 1578–1621), reigned 1598–1621.
1.4 Philip IV ( 1605–65), reigned 1621–65.
1.5 Philip V ( 1683–1746), grandson of Louis XIV; reigned 1700–24 and 1724–46. The selection of Philip as successor to Charles II, and Louis XIV’s insistence that Philip remain an heir to the French throne, gave rise to the War of the Spanish Succession (1701–14). In 1724, Philip abdicated in favor of his son Louis I, but returned to the throne following Louis’s death.
