The peace of the Pyrenees seemed to augur an era of peace that would allow Philip IV to concentrate on the long-delayed reconquest of Portugal. Yet scarcely had a year passed since the marriage of Louis XIV and María Teresa than the relationship began to turn sour. Things were also going wrong in Madrid, where the Cortes refused to vote for the money necessary for the armies that were assembling on the Portuguese border, and monetary policy was causing public unrest. Haro was finding that his abilities as a manager of war no longer applied in a time of peace. He passed away in November 1661, an isolated figure, most of whose friends had now died, or were absent, or no longer trusted him.
