Cardinal Troiano Acquaviva, Ambassador of Spain in Rome, is a figure of great relevance to the history of international relations between Spain and Rome in the Settecento. This work collects the history of the family, with special emphasis on this figure. His role in Spanish foreign policy begins to be of great importance when, acting as unofficial representative of Carlos de Borbón, he obtained the Pontiff's permission so that the Spanish troops, who were to take Naples, could cross the Peninsula.
In 1738, the same year of the publication of the book, a fire ravaged the Embassy archive, so there is little documentation about it.
