Black Legend

The Spanish Empire came to be criticized and demonized regarding how bigoted and cruel their culture and people were by a series of historical writings dubbed the “Black Legend.” These historical writings arose in the 16th century when there was fierce rivalry between European colonial authorities (anti-Spanish) and anti-Catholic propaganda. Spain suffered from this religious and political propaganda since its image was blackened across Europe.
