The anonymous author recounts numbers of French and Spanish troops and the course of their battles in the Aran Valley (Val d'Aran) over the course of several weeks. From the Aran Valley in the Pyrenees, the Garonne River flows into France. It is in the province of LlŽrida (or Lleida) in Catalunya, but the name derives from Basque. Aside from his struggles with Portugal, which had declared its independence in 1640, Philip IV of Spain had to deal with a rebellion in Catalunya, which, having been deprived of its ancient rights and privileges, had requested Louis XIII's protection in 1640. The Thirty YearsÕ War (1618-1648), originally a religious conflict between Catholics and Protestants within the Holy Roman Empire, had by this time widened into a battle between the Bourbons and Habsburgs: hence the French at this time supported both the Catalans and the Portuguese. The War significantly affected the outcome of the Portuguese struggle for independence (the Restaura‹o), since it prevented the King of Spain from directing his full military might against Portugal. *** Arouca R208.
