José A. Pérez Díez, ‘Diego Sarmiento de Acuña, count de Gondomar’
12 December, 2019 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm
Dr José A. Pérez Díez (Leeds) will be giving a paper on Diego Sarmiento de Acuña, count de Gondomar, his library, and his probable connections with the professional theatre in London. Gondomar is a fascinating figure remembered in particular for his role in attempting to bring about a marriage between Prince Charles and the Infanta Maria Anna of Spain, and for being satirised in Thomas Middleton’s _A Game at Chess_
