The book details precisely the birth of Charles III in 1759. He then continued his training at the court of his parents, Kings Philip V and Isabella Farnese, and his rise. Charles III:

  • was Duke of Parma and Piacenza
  • and, temporarily, also Crown Prince of Tuscany,
  • King of Naples,
  • King of Sicily,
  • and finally King of Spain until his death in 1788.

In this Life of Charles III , biographical and historical knowledge are skillfully combined. It reflects on the transcendence of the reign of Carlos III, with the deepest admiration he felt for his sovereign the author.
Gutiérrez de los Ríos presents the main aspects of the life and work of one of the most important monarchs in the history of Spain. He comments on the foreign policy he carried out and the Spanish scientific-cultural contribution, along with more personal and private issues such as his tastes and culinary cravings.

“He always dined on the same thing, his soup; a piece of roast, which was usually veal; a fresh egg; salad with water, sugar and vinegar, and a glass of sweet Canary wine, in which he dipped two pieces of toasted bread crumbs and drank the rest. They always put a large plate of doughnuts covered with sugar, and a plate of fricasse, around which there was bread.”
