The kingdom of Navarre had not the king’s presence since it was conquest by Castile in 1512. After that, it created a diplomatic system composed by permanent agents and itinerant ambassadors who represented the kingdom’s interests in the Court of Madrid. Nevertheless the king and his family visited Navarre in order to apply for soldiers and money in times of war. On the other hand, navarrese assembly wanted the king and the prince to swear their Fueros and to maintain their privileges. The rituality and the ceremonial were crucial in theses visits where the kingdom’s institutions projected a common identity opposite to Castilian. All the territories also wanted to visit the king in Navarre and they starred several disputes to precede the others in public events such as kisses, obsequies and royal proclamations
