Charles III (20 January 1716 – 14 December 1788) was King of Spain 1759–88 (as Carlos III de Borbón), King of Naples and Sicily 1735–59 (as Carlo VII and Carlo V), and Duke of Parma 1732–35 (as Carlo I). He was a proponent of enlightened absolutism.

Charles III in AtlantisEdit

Charles III aligned his country with France during the war against Great Britain. The alliance profited his country nothing; Spanish territory in Atlantis was attacked by Victor Radcliff, which led to a slave uprising. The Spanish forces in Atlantis were unable to put this rebellion down, and French forces refused to do the job. The rebellion continued even after Britain won the war and absorbed French Atlantis.

Literary CommentEdit

The Spanish king in "Nouveau Redon" is not named, but all other European monarchs, at this point in the series, are the same as in OTL.
