    Abstract

    The Nootka-Sound affair is a great opportunity to analyse international relationships during the first phase of the French Revolution as well as the emergence of the contemporary concept of colonialism. The Spanish Monarchy and its long-established family alliances within the House of Bourbon had to face a new diplomatic environment in which Great Britain and revolutionary France had a dominant role.

For this purpose, we will focus mainly on the Spanish and the British ambassadors’ correspondence following a new approach
