This chapter discusses how leading members of the Nation entrenched themselves within the life of the royal court in Madrid. They allied themselves to key members of the aristocracy, including the count-duke of Olivares, favorite to Philip IV, and the leading statesman of imperial Spain. These alliances added a political dimension to the more economic affairs of the Portuguese Nation in Madrid, and opened the door to administrative offices, seats on the royal councils, and most especially, an opportunity to influence royal policy of trade in the Atlantic.
