Netherlands, Philip II of Spain, Lord of the 17 Provinces, Resistance Against the Dutch Rebels, 1575
Philip II was King of Spain, Portugal, and Naples and Sicily, as well as Duke of Milan, and lord of the Seventeen Provinces of the Netherlands. During his marriage to Queen Mary I (1554-58), he was also King of England and Ireland from 1555. His empire included territories on every continent then known to Europeans, including his namesake the Philippine Islands. The expression "The Empire on which the sun never sets" was coined to reflect the extent of his possessions. Philip's finances were troubled by state bankruptcies in 1557, 1560, 1569, 1575, and 1596. His rule in the Netherlands faced many difficulties, including open warfare beginning in 1568. In 1572 an exiled member of the Dutch aristocracy, William the Silent (Prince of Orange), invaded the Netherlands with a Protestant army. The Dutch Republic was created by a declaration of independence in 1581. The war, however, known as the Eighty Years' War, only came to an end in 1648, when Spain finally recognized the Dutch Republic as independent.WO73149.
