Monarch of Spain. Successor and son of second marriage of King Philip IV. With him ended the influence and dominion of the Habsburg dynasty in the Iberian peninsula and in the overseas territories. In fact, his government is considered purely symbolic because, ascended to the throne at the age of four (1665), he was under the regency of his mother Marianna of Austria and a Council of officials and religious notables. Even later, being of poor health and upon reaching the age of majority (1675), he entrusted the care of the state to political eminences of the Spanish court. To his credit, according to historians, is to be attributed an acceptable stability of the state after the long phase of decline and the regulation of civil, criminal and religious codes, known as the laws of the Indies.
