Spanish Historian Manuel Fernandez Alvarez Dies

MADRID – Spanish historian and scholar Manuel Fernandez Alvarez, an authority on the 16th century, died Monday of cancer. He was 88.

Author of some 40 books, including several best sellers, Fernandez Alvarez had just published “España, Biografia de una Nacion” (Spain, Biography of a Nation).

“This is my legacy. Without a doubt, my most important work,” the historian said recently, according to his publishing house Espasa.

Winner of the 1985 National History Prize and the 2006 Castilla y Leon Prize for Social Sciences and Humanities, Fernandez Alvarez dedicated more than 50 years to the study of the 16th century and is the author of many well-known works on Charles V, Isabella, Philip II, Juana the Mad and Cervantes.

His biography, “Charles V, A Man for Europe,” has been translated into English and German, and the book about Juana the Mad has been translated into Japanese as well.

His more recent works include “Pequeña Historia de España” (Little History of Spain), with which he tried to make history interesting for kids, and a memoir of his student days during the 1936-1939 Spanish Civil War. EFE
