Oh, that's a tougie.  ;D I can only think of a few off the top of my head, perhaps someone can arrange them properly:

-Dr de Puebla (I think he handled Katherine's marriage to Arthur)
-Eustace Chapuys
-Jehan Scheyve (sp?)
-Simon Renard
-Francis van der Delft
-Alvaro de Quadra
-Something Mendoza?? During Elizabeth's time?

Ok thanks, prince. I had heard about Puebla, Chapuys, Renard, Quadra.

De Feria was the Spanish ambassador during Elizabeth's first few years, I think. Lets see if we get them between all of us!

No problem.  ;) I totally forgot de Feria. I can't think of anyone else . . . perhaps someone else can help.

Yes, you were right, Prince, Bernardino de Mendoza was the Spanish Ambassador during the second half of Elizabeth's reign until January 1584, when he was expelled from England after his complicity in the Throckmorton Plot was discovered!
