I was fascinated by this legend connected to the
Virgin de la O. After looking into the history
books and records available from the libraries.
King Charles did not venture outside Europe.
He went to Italy to claim the crowns of Parma
and later returned to Spain to become a King.
The European turmoils and his duties prevented
him from making a long voyage to a distant
colony like the Philippines.
I first started with the authoritative Blair and Robertson (55 volumes) then looked into Religious records (Franciscan, Dominican and Augustinan)and
lastly copies of Court records.
Hope this would enligthen your readers and would
not hostility on the part of the natives of Pangil.
