What the fuck is wrong with Spain?
Mad high inflation from all the gold and silver they were mining, they never really recovered from it.
Their biggest achievement in the conquest of most the new world was also the reason for their downfall.
Wasn't part of the Portuguese empire during the Iberian union?

Except germany since we brought the HRE at some point in time.
the Hapsburg where swiss in origin but did not rule the swiss when they ruled the spanish
