Pedro Romero de Terreros, the first Count of Regla, was born in Spain in 1710, but when he was twenty-one, his parents sent him to live with an uncle in New Spain to assume control of the family's businesses. Edith Couturier uses Regla's career to address the growing social tensions of the eighteenth century in New Spain.
