The article focuses on the figure of Don Luis de Haro, minister-favorite of the King of Spain, Philip IV of Habsburg. Through the analysis of two recent books dedicated to this figure, the author aims to highlight the specific aspects of Haro's government compared to those of the most famous validos of Iberian history, namely the Duke of Lerma and the Count-Duke of Olivares. The central question is therefore whether Don Luis de Haro can be considered a valido to all effects, as were Lerma and Olivares, or rather if he was a favorite and adviser to the King with less extensive and more specific skills and tasks. This could be the result of the Philip IV's will, but also due to the changed political and cultural context in which the Habsburg monarchy found itself operating after the end of the Thirty Years’ War.

Abstract

The article focuses on the figure of Don Luis de Haro, minister-favorite of the King of Spain, Philip IV of Habsburg. Through the analysis of two recent books dedicated to this figure, the author aims to highlight the specific aspects of Haro's government compared to those of the most famous validos of Iberian history, namely the Duke of Lerma and the Count-Duke of Olivares. The central question is therefore whether Don Luis de Haro can be considered a valido to all effects, as were Lerma and Olivares, or rather if he was a favorite and adviser to the King with less extensive and more specific skills and tasks. This could be the result of the Philip IV's will, but also due to the changed political and cultural context in which the Habsburg monarchy found itself operating after the end of the Thirty Years’ War.
