English summary: King Philipp II of Spain (1527-1598) was the first modern monarch, whose possessions spanned the entire globe. Politically apt and with clear reason he ruled and enlarged the land mass he had inherited from his father king Karl V and turned Spain into the leading global power. This biography gives an account of the life of Philipp II founded on current research. Not only is he the general, tactician and conscious of his power, but also the loving father, collecting patron of arts, the bigoted believer and administering bureaucrat. Edelmayer succeeds impressively in giving a multi-facetted portrait of a ruler who fascinates and polarises up to today. German description: Konig Philipp II. von Spanien (1527-1598) war der erste moderne Monarch, dessen Lander den gesamten Globus umspannten. Mit viel politischem Geschick und nuchternem Verstand regierte und vergrosserte er die von seinem Vater Kaiser Karl V. ererbten Herrschaftsgebiete und machteaus der spanischen Monarchie die damals fuhrende Weltmacht.Diese Biographie schildert das Leben Philipps II. auf der Basis neuester Quellenforschung. Er ist nicht nur der Schlachtenlenker, der Taktiker, der Machtbewusste, sondern auch der liebende Vater und sammelnde Kunstmazen, der bigotte Glaubige und der verwaltende Burokrat. Edelmayer gelingt es eindrucksvoll, das facettenreiche Portrait eines Herrschers, der bis heute fasziniert und polarisiert, zu zeichnen; er bietet damit die erste umfassende Biographie Philipps II. fur das deutschsprachige Publikum seit Jahrzehnten.English summary: King Philipp II of Spain (1527-1598) was the first modern monarch, whose possessions spanned the entire globe.
