  • Philip II was King of Spain, Portugal, Naples, Sicily, and, while briefly married to Mary I, King of England and Ireland. Also known as Philip the Prudent, he ruled one of the world's largest empires which included territories in every continent then known to Europeans.

    Philip was born in Valladolid, the son of Charles V of the Holy Roman Empire, and his consort, Isabella of Portugal. During his reign, Spain was the foremost Western European power. Under his rule, Spain reached the height of its influence and power, directing explorations all around the world and settling the colonization of territories in all the known continents. The Philippines was named after him.
