Abstract
En 1664, Sir Richard Fanshawe recaló en la corte de Madrid como el primer embajador de la restaurada monarquía de Inglaterra. La misión que le encomendó Carlos II Estuardo se articuló en torno a dos ejes cardinales para los intereses regios: la firma de un nuevo tratado de comercio y alianza, y el arbitraje de la paz entre España y Portugal. En los dos años que duró su legación, el negociado generó resultados desiguales que no terminaron de satisfacer a las distintas partes y se saldarían con un final inesperado. El objeto de este artículo es analizar el marco de las relaciones diplomáticas anglo-españolas en la transición de la República al restituido gobierno monárquico para comprender las problemáticas heredadas a las que tuvo que responder Fanshawe con su praxis diplomática y la renovación de distintos acuerdos que abrirían nuevos horizontes políticos en el tablero geopolítico europeo.
In 1664, Sir Richard Fanshawe arrived at the court of Madrid as the first ambassador of the restored monarchy of England. The mission entrusted to him by Charles II Stuart was articulated around two cardinal axes for the royal interests: the signing of a new treaty of commerce and alliance, and the arbitration of peace between Spain and Portugal. In the two years that his legation lasted, the negotiation generated unequal results that did not end up satisfying the different parties and would come to an unexpected end. The purpose of this article is to analyse the framework of Anglo-Spanish diplomatic relations in the transition from the Republic to the re-established monarchical government to understand the inherited matters to which Fanshawe had to respond with his diplomatic praxis and the renewal of different agreements that would open new political horizons in the European geopolitical chessboard.
