BeschreibungPlease note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Rodrigo Ponce de León, 4th Duke of Arcos, (2 January 1602 1658) was a Grandee of Spain and a Knight of the Order of the Golden Fleece. He served as Viceroy of Valencia and of Naples. As Viceroy of Naples, the Duke of Arcos suppressed a revolt among the poor Neapolitans led by Masaniello but was soon faced with another revolt against Spanish rule, which resulted in the proclamation of the short-lived Neapolitan Republic. Grandee is the word used to render in English the Iberic high aristocratic title Grande, used by the Spanish nobility; and Grandeza used by the Portuguese, and Brazilian nobility. It can refer to other people of a somewhat comparable, exalted position, roughly synonymous with magnate; a formal upper level of the nobility (especially when it carried the right to a parliamentary seat).
