Abstract

La Monarquía Hispánica puso en marcha una serie de estrategias con el objetivo de controlar a los cónsules de extranjeros que se fueron asentando en los puertos españoles durante el siglo XVII e inicios del XVIII. La pretensión de este control fue llevada a cabo no solamente sobre las actividades y funciones consulares, sino también sobre los nombramientos. Este trabajo estudia el rol de los consulados en la regulación y fluctuaciones de las relaciones internacionales en el tablero europeo. Asimismo, se intenta subrayar la importancia de estas instituciones como observatorios para el análisis de la historia política y económica durante la Edad Moderna.

The aim of the present work is to study the role played by the consular institution in the regulation and the fluctuations of the international relationships in the European context. It is intended to highlight the importance of these kind of institutions as observatories for political and economical history during the Early Modern period.
