Today was Cristina turn, but last day I didn't come to class and she did my journal. First we have corrected the schemes about the kings of the Hispanic Kingdoms in the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries. We have seen some pictures of Charles I in the powerpoint, his family, his territories (Castile, Aragon, house of Austria, Burgundy and the territories of America)
Paqui has also started to write the scheme on the blackboard, also we have seen the internal problems of Spain: In Castile; the revolt of Comuneros and in Aragon (Mallorca and Valencia) the revolt of Germanías. The demands of the revolts and their results.
We have also seen the objectives of Foreing Policy (defense of the Empire and the defense the religion) and the problems (wars against France and Muslims).
