Format: Paperback
Patrons, Partisans, and Palace Intrigues: The Court Society of Colonial Mexico, 1702-1710 is a scholarly reconstruction of the social networks and intrigues in the court of Viceroy Duke of Alburquerque (1702-1710). Author Christoph Rosenmuller (assistant professor in the Department of History, Middle Tennessee State University) reveals the devastating depth of corruption in the Duke's court, including the alliances he built with the local population to deny reform efforts originating from Spain. The Duke collaborated with contraband traders, acted against the secularization of Indian parishes, and accused local craftsmen and merchants of treason (imprisoning some and allowing them to die in jail) to uplift his own credentials as a "loyal" official. Ultimately, the royal court of Madrid demanded revenge, and Albuquerque had to pay an astronomical (by the terms of the day) 700,000 silver pesos to return to the king's good graces. A fascinating, minutely detailed reconstruction of historical human treachery.
