Carmen Vaquero

Garcilaso’s World URL:

The Toledan poet lived a number of significant historic moments during his short lifetime: the end of the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella; the coming of Philip the Handsome to the throne and his early death; the passing of the Crown on to his son Charles; the designation of the latter as Emperor of Germany; the uprising of the Communities and the implication of the Laso Family; the subsequent terms of imprisonment; the war against France; the Emperor Charles’s wedding in Seville and his coronation in Bologna;  the Turkish attacks; the expedition and conquest of Tunisia; the monarch’s return via Sicily, Naples and Rome; the appropriation of the Duchy of Savoy by the French king, etc. All this, as well as a discussion of the poet’s family and courtly circle, will form the basis of this lecture.
