John of Austria (the Younger) (Don Juan José de Austria) was a Spanish general and political figure. He was the only natural son of Philip IV of Spain to be acknowledged by the King and trained for military command and political administration. Don John advanced the causes of Castile militarily and diplomatically at Naples, Sicily, Catalonia, the Netherlands, Portugal, Dunkirk and other fronts, and remained a significant popular hero even as Imperial Spain began its fall. In 1677 in a palace coup he took control of the monarchy of his half-brother Carlos II, but he proved far from the savior Spain had hoped he would be. He remained in ineffectual power over the fast-darkening empire until his death in 1679.
