Biography

Philip II (Spanish: Felipe II «el Prudente») was King of Spain from 1556 and of Portugal from 1581 (as Philip I, Filipe I). From 1554 he was King of Naples and Sicily as well as Duke of Milan. During his marriage to Queen Mary I (1554–58), he was also King of England and Ireland. From 1555, he was lord of the Seventeen Provinces of the Netherlands. Known in Spanish as "Philip the Prudent", his empire included territories on every continent then known to Europeans, including his namesake the Philippine Islands. During his reign, Spain reached the height of its influence and power. This is sometimes called the Golden Age. The expression "The empire on which the sun never sets" was coined during Philip's time to reflect the extent of his possessions.

Hapsburg-52 and Habsburg-1 appear to represent the same person because: Felipe and Philip are the same, title King of Spain, marriage date.

Von Habsburg-18 and Habsburg-1 appear to represent the same person because: Based on wife and daughter is intended to be the same person. Birth and death dates are incorrect on Von Habsburg-18.
