One of the branches of the Habsburg dynasty ruled Spain for almost 200 years. During this period, the country’s economy and culture developed.
The Habsburg dynasty controlled Portugal, also under its rule were vast territories in Europe and America.
During the first half of the Habsburg reign, Spain reached the peak of its power. The Habsburgs were very concerned about the safety of their “blue blood”, so they only married with their close relatives.
As a result, such incest has led to irreversible consequences. Firstly, a protruding jaw appeared in the appearance of the representatives of the Habsburg dynasty, and secondly, the dynasty had a very high level of miscarriages and deaths.
