Intimité et scandale autour de l'envoûtement de Charles II

Abstract : At the end of the seventeenth century, the scandal caused by the arrest of father Froilán Díaz de Llanos, confessor of Charles II, is not only due to the high dignity of the persons involved, but is also explained because the royal intimacy was revealed. The Spanish and European courts pay special attention to the issue of the infertility of the royal couple. The exorcisms known by the Spanish king in the presence of his confessor are central to opposing interests and lead Queen Mariana of Neuburg to encourage the arrest of the latter in March 1699. The case caused much noise, all the more so as it concerned the body of Charles II, and furthermore, respect for the monarchical institution. Scandal and intimacy are mixed here to give an idea of the climate of great tension related to the expectations at the end of the reign of the last of the Habsburgs of Spain.
