Philip IV (Felipe IV), (8 April 1605 – 17 September 1665) was King of Spain between 1621 to 1665, sovereign of the Spanish Netherlands, and King of Portugal (as Philip III) until 1640.
Philip IV was born in Valladolid, and was the eldest son of Philip III and his wife Margarita of Austria.

Philip IV's reign, after a few years of inconclusive successes, was characterized by political and military decay and adversity. He has been held responsible for the decline of Spain, which was mostly due, however, to organic causes largely beyond the control of any one ruler. Philip certainly possessed more energy, both mental and physical, than his diffident father. His handwritten translation of Francesco Guicciardini's texts on political history still exists, and he was a fine horseman and keen hunter.
His artistic taste is shown by his patronage of his court painter Diego Velázquez; his love of letters by his favoring Lope de Vega, Pedro Calderón de la Barca, and other immortal dramatists. He is credited, on fairly probable testimony, with a share in the composition of several comedies. He also commenced the building of the Buen Retiro palace in Madrid, parts of which still remain near the Prado.
His good intentions were no avail to governance, however. Feeling himself not yet qualified to rule when he ascended to the throne at age 16, he allowed himself to be guided by the most capable men he could find. His favourite, Olivares, was a far more honest and capable man than his predecessor the Duke of Lerma, and better fitted for the office of chief minister than any Spaniard of the time, perhaps. Philip, however, lacked the confidence to free himself from Olivares's influence once he did come of age. With Olivares's encouragement, he rather busied himself with frivolous amusements. By 1643, when disasters falling on all sides led to the dismissal of the all-powerful minister, Philip had largely lost the power to devote himself to hard work. After a brief struggle with the task of directing the administration of the most extensive and worst-organized multi-national state in Europe, he sank back into indolence and let other favourites govern.

Élisabeth de Bourbon (November 22, 1602 - October 6, 1644), was the eldest daughter of King Henry IV of France and his second Queen Marie de' Medici.
In 1615, Élisabeth was married to the future Philip IV of Spain. She was Queen of Spain from 1621 to 1644. This marriage followed a tradition of cementing military and political alliances between the Catholic powers of France and Spain with royal marriages. The tradition went back to the marriage of King Philip II of Spain with the French princess, Élisabeth de Valois, the daughter of King Henry II of France, in 1559 as part of the Peace of Cateau-Cambrésis. They were parents to seven children.

Mariana or Maria-Anna of Austria (24 December 1634, Vienna, Austria - 16 May 1696, Madrid, Spain) Queen consort of Spain as the second wife of her maternal uncle, King Philip IV. She was the daughter of Habsburg Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand III and Infanta Maria Anna of Spain, Philip's sister.
Mariana was born on 23 December 1634 in Vienna at the court of her paternal grandfather Ferdinand II. Her father, who would become Emperor in 1637, was as yet only the King of Hungary and Bohemia, and was away for most of his wife's pregnancy campaigning in the Thirty Years' War.
Mariana was also a younger sister of Ferdinand IV of Hungary and an older sister of Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor. As a child, she was engaged to her Spanish Habsburg first cousin Baltasar Carlos, Prince of Asturias, but when he died at 16 in 1646, Philip IV was left without a male heir and Maria-Anna without a fiancé. In 1649 the king married his 14-year-old niece himself. Although known for being cheerful as a young girl, after her wedding to her uncle she became cold and bad-tempered.
Philip IV and Mariana had two children who survived infancy
