DescriptionPhilip III of Spain Document Signed "Yo El Rey" as king, one page in Spanish, 8.5" x 11.75", May 5, 1610, n.p., with seal attached Philip III ( 1578 -1621) was the king of Spain and Portugal and Algarves (as Philip II), from 1598 until his death. He inherited the beliefs of his father, Phillip II, but no share of his industry. The old king had sorrowfully confessed that God had not given him a son capable of governing his vast dominions, and had foreseen that Philip III would be led by his servants. This calculation was exactly fulfilled. The new king put the direction of his government entirely into the hands of his favorites. The king's own life was passed amid court festivities, on which enormous sums of money were wasted, or in the practice of piety. It was said that he was so virtuous as hardly to have committed a venial sin. He cannot be justly blamed for having been born to rule a despotic monarchy, without even the capacity which would have qualified him to manage a small estate. In fine condition.
