Don Carlos

 

Born July 8, 1545, in Valladolid; died July 14, 1568, in Madrid. Heir to the Spanish throne, son of Philip II.

On bad terms with his father, Don Carlos planned to flee Spain but was arrested in 1568 by Philip. He died while in prison. His fate has served as the subject for a number of legends and works of literature, including V. Alfieri’s tragedy Philip and F. von Schiller’s Don Carlos. In the 19th century the opera Don Carlos was composed by G. Verdi on the theme.

As for Spain, for instance, if you know how to throw in Don Carlos and the Infanta, and Don Pedro and Seville and Granada, from time to time in the right proportions -- they may have changed the names a little since I saw the papers -- and serve up a bull-fight when other entertainments fail, it will be true to the letter, and give us as good an idea of the exact state or ruin of things in Spain as the most succinct and lucid reports under this head in the newspapers: and as for England, almost the last significant scrap of news from that quarter was the revolution of 1649; and if you have learned the history of her crops for an average year, you never need attend to that thing again, unless your speculations are of a merely pecuniary character.
