The book has argued for greater recognition of the joint reign’s importance from a constitutional, cultural, political and historical perspective, building on recent revisionist history and examining some of the reasons why it still comes as a surprise that England had a Spanish king in the mid-Tudor period. The fluidity and complexity of religious faith in the period has been flattened out by sectarian readings of the reign while its political arrangements have been simplified through the lens of nationalist history. The Anglo-Spanish court, far from lacking purpose, produced a ferment of creativity and innovation from cartography to theology, exploration and enterprise, music and art, literature and political thought.
