Richelieu and Olivares / Edition 1by J. H. Elliott
Pub. Date: 04/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
The triumph of France assured the fame of Richelieu, while Spain's failure condemned Olivares to historical neglect. This account of their contrasting destinies draws parallels to the outcome of the great power struggle between France and Spain in seventeenth-century Europe.
