The Spanish Empire in all its glory in 1562 – a lavish piece of propaganda on behalf of Philip II

Chartmaker Diego Gutiérrez shows the Spanish Empire in all its glory in this lavish 1562 map. This was made for the approval of Philip II, shown in the guise of Neptune, borne aloft the turbulent Atlantic. He is surrounded by sea monsters, animals and attributes of empire. The artistry of such maps enabled their messages to reach Europe’s elite. This was the first map to use the name ‘California’.
