Manuel de Godoy (1767-1851), the "Prince of Peace", was First Minister of Spain during the reign of King Charles VI of Spain. Corrupt and extravagant, Godoy was hated by the Spanish nobility and commoners alike, and his tenure helped lead Spain into the bloody Peninsular War (1807-1814) against the First French Empire. Oil on canvas portrait by Francisco Bayeu y Subías, c. 1792.
