After watching a fabulous set of BBC plays called Fall Of Eagles, I find myself somewhat curious about this Monarchy and was wondering if anybody can recommend any good books for a Hapsburg beginner:)
 
There's a load of info there. Thanks Leto. this should keep me busy for a while:)
 
Charles II last of Spanish Hapsburg line died in 1700 age 38 had a number deformities due to inbreeding . He had no heirs because he was sterile . His father Phillip the VI of Spain and his Mother Mariana of Austria were Uncle and Niece .
 
The Spanish line of the of the Hapsburgs all in the name power and creating tighter family alliances and the resulting inbreeding caused their own demise.
