L’empire des exilés. Les Flamands et le gouvernement de l’Espagne au XVIIIe siècle

Abstract :  In 1713, after two centuries of domination in Italy and the Netherlands, the Treaty of Utrecht sanctioned the dismemberment of the Hispanic monarchy and its withdrawal into the Iberian Peninsula. While Spain now appeared to turn its back on Europe, thousands of Flemings and Italians went into exile to remain under the domination of the Catholic King. Against all odds, these exiles have been constituted into a powerful political and military elite that has had a significant impact on the monarchy's government. Focusing on the Flemish case, this book examines the circumstances of imperial disintegration and its consequences for Spanish society. Far from the clichés of the peninsular withdrawal, analysing the social and political horizons of this collective of exiles, these study propose an interpretation of how the Bourbons reconfigured the imperial heritage of Spain in Europe.
