Nozze del Duca di Savoia et Infanta, [1585].

Account of the wedding of Charles Emmanuel I Duke of Savoy and Infanta Catalina, second daughter of King Philip II of Spain, celebrated in Zaragoza. The King and his retinue received the Duke at the outskirts of the city, and led to the Palacio Arzobispal where the Court was lodged. The cardinal Granvelle celebrated the wedding without delay, and the day ended with a ball. The celebrations continued for the next three weeks, with balls, tournaments, contests, jousts, and various team games well attended despite rainy weather. There were also ceremonies in which the Duke created a number of knights of the Order of the Annunziata. On the last day of March, King Phillip awarded the Order of Golden Fleece to the Duke and to a few Grandees of his Court; the Duke distributed valuable gifts to the royal family and to all the important nobles. The next day the King and his retinue left for Barcelona; the newlyweds embarked for Italy, while the King and his Court headed to Poblet to spend Easter at the monastery there.
