  Philip V of Spain - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
King Philip V of Spain (December 19, 1683 – July 9, 1746) or Philippe of Anjou was king of Spain from 1700 to 1746, the first of the Bourbon dynasty in Spain.
Although Philip was allowed to remain on the Spanish throne, the war cost Spain the possession of Minorca in the Balearic Islands as well as Gibraltar to Great Britain and the Spanish Netherlands, Naples, Milan, and Sardinia to the Austrian Habsburgs; Sicily and parts of the Milanese to Savoy.
Philip helped his Bourbon relatives to make territorial gains in the War of the Polish Succession and the War of the Austrian Succession by reconquering Naples and Sicily from Austria and Oran from the Ottomans.

 Treaty of Utrecht Renunciations to France and Spain Philip V Headship Royal House of France Bourbon Orléans   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Philip V, now under increasing pressure from his grandfather to agree to the demand for a renunciation, made it clear on 3 July 1712 that he would only sign such an act to facilitate peace and "so that the Spanish Monarchy will be assured to his descendants".
The reciprocal renunciations made by Philip V, King of Spain, to the throne of France, and by two Princes of the House of France to the Spanish throne, were intended to settle the balance of power in Europe on a permanent basis by permanently separating the French and Spanish Crowns.
Philip, therefore, introduced a new system of succession in Spain on 10 May 1713; the semi-Salic system, which gave priority to all his male descendants with the provision that in the event of their extinction, the throne would pass to the nearest female dynast.

The Duke of Burgundy had two younger brothers: Charles, Duke of Berry, and Philip, Duke of Anjou, soon to be confirmed as Philip V of Spain.
In 1700, the Duke of Anjou had become King of Spain under the name Philip V, inheriting the crown from his grandmother, wife of Louis XIV and a Spanish princess.
However, it appeared quite probable that Philip V of Spain would denounce the treaty whereby he had renounced the crown of France, and that a major European war, as well as a French civil war, was sure to happen.

Although he postures this scholarly work as a personal biography of Philip V and not a historical review of the king's reign, Kamen's rehabilitation is sometimes excessive: for instance, his claim that, under Philip, "Spain awoke to adequate food supplies" is undermined by his own admission that royal policies aggravated the problem of poverty.
The eighteenth-century reign of Philip V of Spain, the first Spanish king of the French Bourbon dynasty, which still rules in Spain today, was marked by the long conflict called the War of Spanish Succession.
Philip, the grandson of France's great king Louis XIV, came to Spain young and untried, but, as Kamen pictures here, in a scholarly, exacting, but certainly accessible account, he developed the acumen and agility to end his reign as a leader who made a difference.

The Treaties of Utrecht (1713) and Rastatt (1714) concluded the War of Spanish Succession and recognized the succession of Philip V (Felipe V.) to the Spanish crown, the establishment of the Bourbon Dynasty in Spain.
He suffered from depression and was dependent on his second wife, Elizabeth Farnese, who was behind Spain's policy of recovering territory in Spain to create monarchies for her sons (they were not likely to inherit Spain, as Philip V. had sons from his first marriage).
Spain, with the exception of Navarra and the Basque country, was now centralized; the Castilian CORTES becoming the nation's parliament.

 Charles VII of Naples & Philip V of Spain & the Order of San Gennaro   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Italian writers, however, have ignored the influence of King Philip and Charles's extensive correspondence with his father, and the names of those knights of Saint Januarius whose nominations were made at the instigation of King Philip.
A further nomination of a Spanish Knight by Philip followed a request for the Order from the Marquess of Bay, on the grounds of his services in Italy (24 August 1738) but this nomination was held over by King Charles for a later occasion (letter from HSM 21 October 1738).
Thus the requests addressed to him as King of Spain in those years are different in character to the requests addressed to King Philip, his father, which demonstrate the influence and involvement of the Spanish King in Neapolitan affairs.
