A Spanish dramatist and romancer; born in Ecija, Andalusia, January 1570; died at Madrid, Nov. 10, 1646. As a young lawyer he won the favor of King Philip, who gave him his first literary encouragement. He wrote four hundred plays, all very long and full of wit. "Empire after Death" and "The King is More Important than One's Own Flesh and Blood" are the best known. He also wrote a novel or romance, "The Lame Devil", from which Le Sage freely borrowed in writing upon the same theme.
