I am doing a major research paper on a traveler to England... At first it was going to deal with Archduke Charles of Austria and his foreign marriage negotiations with Elizabeth, but the topic got changed. The new topic is the ambassador, for Philip II, Don Diego Guzman de Silva and his travels. I am trying to stick with his travels that specifically dealt with the marriage negotiations with Elizabeth (since she is what I study mainly)... I have been looking in the Calender State Papers of Span. 1558-67 but haven't really been able to come up with much more. I know that Guzman is not a well known person but that is unfortunately what I have to write on.

So if anyone can help lead me in the right way to more sources or questions I can think about or facts, I would greatly appreciate it. I could use all the help I can get.

Again the name of the ambassador is Don Diego Guzman de Silva.
