Thanks, thatís very interesting. I wonder if itís true!
Probably untrue. Another case of history of the vanquished being mostly published under the victors. See Hilt's 1987 more scholarly study "Troubled Trinity: Godoy and the Spanish Monarchs." Though he was without doubt an opportunist, in his dealings with the monarchs, Godoy proved to be more the dutiful and hard-working son that the royal couple never had. Without many allies, he worked very hard to protect the monarchs even when they were deposed, frail and forgotten.
