This chapter establishes the context of convent reform in Havana, Cuba, a colony emerging from backwater status to play a role on the international stage. It suggests while the Cuban creoles in general appreciated the newfound attention, as it meant new opportunities and unprecedented wealth, the Havana Clares did not welcome the royal spotlight. The last thing they wanted was royal scrutiny, which came in incremental increases over the following few decades, as part of a program of state-sponsored convent reform supported by the later Bourbon kings of Spain, Charles III and Charles IV.
