Spain led by Carlos III is a custom civilization by TarcisioCM, with contributions from Janboruta, Regalman, and bernie14.

This mod requires Brave New World.



Spain's location on the Iberian Peninsula between North Africa and Europe has made it an important territory from prehistoric times to the present.  At one time the first world Imperial power, Spain later had to survive devastating wars and centuries of political unrest. From its discovery and colonization of the New World to its involvement in countless wars of independence, Spain is one of the few countries which can claim such a lasting and encompassing global influence. 

Carlos III[]

Charles III was the King of Spain and the Spanish Indies from 1759 to 1788. In 1731, the 15-year-old Charles became the Duke of Parma and Piacenza, as Charles I, but later conquered the kingdoms of Naples and Sicily and abdicated from the Duchy. After the death of his elder brothers, he inherited Spain and abdicated from his Italian Kingdoms. As king of Spain Charles III tried to rescue his empire from decay through far-reaching reforms such as weakening the Church and its monasteries, promoting science and university research, facilitating trade and commerce, modernizing agriculture and avoiding wars. He never achieved satisfactory control over finances, and was obliged to borrow to meet expenses. His reforms proved short-lived and Spain relapsed after his death, but his legacy lives on to this day.

Dawn of Man[]

Praises be unto you, oh enlightened king of Spain Carlos the third! Spain has a long history of struggle, piety and untold riches, but the empire that you unexpectedly inherited at the death of your brothers was a broken husk of its former self. However, through able leadership and the employment of capable ministers, you, at last, gave Spain a king worthy of such stature, and under your reign enlightened ideas spread through the kingdom, and sweeping reforms were enacted.

King Carlos, through your actions you gained the love of your subjects and they clamor for your return once again! Will you answer the call, leading the Spanish people through any adversity that come to pass? Can you build a civilization to stand the test of time?

Introduction: Oh hello? Have you decided to join me on my hunting? How splendorous, very splendorous indeed. The Game on these parts, too, is very splendorous... Ah, but where are my manners? I am Carlos, the third of Spain, and the former King of Naples and Sicily.

Introduction: Oh my, oh my, look at who have joined our little hunt! I, Charles of Bourbon, eagerly welcome you to my Kingdom and land, which is astonishingly beautiful and full of life this time of the year! More specifically, full of wild life, ripe for hunting, which of course requires my full attention. So if you would excuse me...

Defeat: It seems that I, too, have failed Spain. There is no greater shame for me, so please, let us get this over with already.
