Abstract

Mr. Richard Wall is one of the forgotten figures in the history of the Spanish eighteenth century. Born in France (Nantes, 1694), but with Irish roots, he always felt himself Spanish, and identified with his country of adoption and its people. After a long military career, in which he served the army of Philip V, and after his employment in London as Spanish Ambassador (1747-54), he guided the monarchy as Minister of State from 1754, when he substituted Carvajal and Ensenada fell, to 1763. Lying between Ferdinand VI and Charles III, he is the key element in understanding the change and the continuity between these kings and their policies. We will analyze the causes that made Wall, as an old man, ask for his retirement in the summer of 1763, in the context of the first period of Charles III's kingdom.
