DE GUZMAN CENTENERO DE ARCE, Domingo. La política asiática de Felipe III: Los intereses cruzados de los socorros a Filipinas (1610-1624). Historia (Santiago) [online]. 2019, vol.52, n.2, pp.409-438. ISSN 0717-7194.

During the reign of Philip III (1598-1621) the Spanish monarchy looked to open a commercial route between Seville and Manila by sending of a series of socorros to the Philippines. Only one of these armadas managed to arrive to Manila under the command of Ruy González de Sequeira, although there were various attempts made. This study analyzes the sending of these armadas within the Asian politics of the Spanish Monarchy of Philip III and Philip IV. This is an analysis that obligates us to consider not only the global context but the impact of these armadas and the politics in which they were sustained in relation to the Portuguese and Spanish empires during the Reign of Philip III.
