This chapter discusses the Spanish faction of cardinals and the colony of Spaniards, which had always been the most visible manifestation of Spanish power in Rome. During the reigns of Philip II and Philip III, Spaniards became the most influential foreign group in the city. It is this local presence, the people of Spanish Rome, that the chapter aims to study. It begins with a discussion of the so-called Caraffa War, instigated by the Caraffa pope Paul IV and after whom the war is named. The Caraffa War has received little historical attention, even though it was instrumental in establishing the Spanish hegemony in Rome and led to the increasing Spanish domination of Rome over the next sixty years.
