This chapter provides an overview history of British knowledge about Spain from the sixteenth century to the end of the nineteenth. It explores the consequences of Spain’s shifting geopolitical position during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and the foundations for British emotional, economic and infrastructural investment in the country.
