Abstract

Having succeeded in establishing their presence throughout Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas, in the early sixteenth century Spain and Portugal became the first imperial powers on a worldwide scale. Between 1580 and 1640, the period in which these two entities formed a union, they achieved an almost global hegemony. Though they lost their political primacy in the seventeenth century, the two monarchies survived and continued to enjoy relative success until the early 1800s; indeed, their cultural and political legacies persist in many countries around the world even today.
