Ruy Gomez de Silva, or the prince of Eboli, was one of the central figures at the court of Spain in the 16th century. Thanks to his oily affability, social grace and an uncanny knack for anticipating and catering to the desires of his prince, he rose from obscurity to become the favourite and chief minister of Philip II. This book uses the scattered surviving sources to create a narrative that breathes life not only into Ruy Gomez, but also into the court, the era and the enigmatic character of Phillip II. The book discovers in the career of Gomez the techniques, aspirations and mentality of an accomplished courtier in the age of Castiglione.Nota de la solapa:
"This is a little jewel of a book. Beautifully and elegantly written, it examines the political career of an important figure at the court of Philip II of Spain. It is political biography in the best sense of the term."Richard Kagan, author ofLucrecia's Dreams
