    ... e the Milanese governor, Crdoba, sent his troops to Monteferrat in March 1628. Olivares did not publicly endorse this move but he probably gave private encouragement to Crdoba. In doing so Olivares found he had provoked a French war against Spain in Italy. Elliott states that the Mantuan war was the biggest blunder in Olivares’ foreign policy.

  • The Struggle For Individuality - 1,248 words
