Description: 1587(March 22) entire internal letter from Lisbon addressed to "Alonso Truxillo de Aguilar/Alferes de la comp de don Julio de mansilla" indicating a military connection, ribbon-slit on the face, a bit soiled mostly within. [Between 1581 and 1640, Portugal endured "Sixty Years of Captivity" at the hands of Spain. A succession crisis erupted in 1580, on the death of the young king, Sebastian I. The machinations read like 'Game of Thrones'. Philip II of Spain exploited the situation & united the two countries into the Iberian Union]
