CORREA, Marcelo Paulo. Family and marital relationships in the court of Felipe IV: the descendants of the II Count of Castrillo. Cult.-hombre-soc. [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.1, pp.365-384. ISSN 0716-1557.

This article reflects about the importance of family relationships in the configuration of the political system during the reign of Felipe IV (1621-1665). It is focused on the analysis of the marriages of the offspring of one of the most important characters of this period: García de Avellaneda y Haro, II Count of Castrillo.

Through this investigation, dialogue is promoted between recent theoretical-methodological proposals of social history and the paradigm of the Court as a system of government. Wherewith it pretends to make an essay of the joint use of these two historiographical traditions.

This work is sustained by many sources from the “Archivo de Protocolos Notariales de Madrid”, “Archivo Histórico Nacional”, “Archivo del Reino de Navarra” and the section of “Cervantes” from “Biblioteca Nacional de España”.

Keywords : Lineage; Court; Felipe IV; marriage; family; kinship.
