The Spanish Empire, Silver, & Runaway Inflation: Crash Course World History #25

Crash Course Poster available for pre-order now: http://dftba.com/crashcourseposter This is the first in a series of three Crash Course World History posters featuring many of the Thought Bubble characters from the episodes. When the series is complete, they’ll all fit together to make one giant, beautiful poster. Hooray!

In which John Green explores how Spain went from being a middling European power to one of the most powerful empires on Earth, thanks to their plunder of the New World in the 16th and 17th centuries. Learn how Spain managed to destroy the two biggest pre-Columbian civilizations, mine a mountain made of silver, mishandle their economy, and lose it all by the mid-1700s. Come along for the roller coaster ride with Charles I (he was also Charles V), Philip II, Atahualpa, Moctezuma, Hernán Cortés, and Francisco Pizarro as Spain rises and falls, and takes two empires and China down with them.
