Carlos II, known as "Carlos the Mad", inherited the Spanish throne at the age of four. Kept occupied with combating Louis XIV of France, and the intrigues of his Mother's court, the economy of Spain worsened despite heavy taxes and the treasure ships from the New World. With Carlos's death in 1700, the line of the Spanish Hapsburgs was ended.
