He is the brother of Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII, and 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. Mazarin and Anne of Austria Spanish arrange the marriage of Louis XIV with the Infanta Maria Theresa he married in Saint-Jean-de-Luz in 1660.
