This chapter relates the story of the Nation and the empire from the early 17th century to the restoration of the kingdom of Portugal's political sovereignty in 1640. It tracks the critiques and opposition that various groups and institutions within the Spanish empire built up against the Nation. Doing so helps illustrate how a relationship once founded on interdependence could be pushed toward fracture and how this movement led to the unraveling of the Nation as an Atlantic community.
