Description

    Philip V of Spain Document Signed "Yo El Rey" as king, four pages (front and verso) in Spanish, 8" x 12", August 2, 1723. Philip V of Spain (1683-1746), or Philippe of Anjou, was king of Spain from 1700 to 1746, the first of the Bourbon dynasty in Spain. Philip was born in Versailles. He was made the Duc d'Anjou upon his birth. He was the second son of Louis, le Grand Dauphin of France. In the year 1700, the King of Spain, Charles II, died. Charles' will named the 17-year old Philip, the grandson of Charles' sister Maria Theresa, as his successor. After the Royal Council decided to accept Charles' will naming Philip King of Spain, the Spanish ambassador was called in and introduced to his new king. The ambassador, along with his son, kneeled before Philip and made a long speech in Spanish which Philip did not understand. Ironically he had never been taught Spanish and had only begun taking lessons that day. In fine condition.
