King Philip II of Spain devalued Spanish currency on November 29, 1596. Did this action actually improve the Spanish economy?

Why did King Philip II of Spain become King of Portugal in 1580 when he was only third in the line of succession at the time? I believe that both Ranuccio Farnese (son of Infanta Maria of Guimarães) and Infanta Catarina of Portugal, Duchess of Braganza, were ahead of him based on male-preference cognatic primogeniture.

Elisabeth of Valois married King Philip II of Spain in 1559.

At one stage Elisabeth de France was being put forward as a potential bride for Edward VI of England.
The talks began in 1550 but hit a stumbling block regarding religion and Edward was dead by July 1553.

There could have been a King Diego of Spain. Unfortunately Prince Diego predeceased King Philip II.

At the time of Infante Diego's birth he had 2 older siblings

Ferdinand, Prince of Asturias +1578
Infante Carlos +1575
Infante Diego +1582

By 1582 all 3 were dead and Diego's younger brother Felipe became Prince of Asturias.
