He became king on the death of his father in 1621, the year he married Elizabeth of France (1602-1644), daughter of Henri IV and Marie de Medici. He is the brother of Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII, and the father of Marie-Thérèse, wife of Louis XIV. The greater part of his reign will happen in the fight against France. From 1635, Spain entered the Thirty Years' War. After the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, the war continues between France and Spain and ends at the Peace of the Pyrenees in 1659. France loses definitively Catalonia, but acquires Roussillon and Cerdanya.
