Francisco de los Cobos y Molina was the secretary of State and Comendador for the kingdom of Castile under the rule of the Emperor Charles I of Spain. His career benefited from the help aforded by his uncle, Diego Vela Allide, treasurer and secretary of queen Isabel I of Castile. After the death of king Ferdinand of Aragon in 1516, Cobos was charged by Cardinal Cisneros with traveling to Habsburg-ruled Flanders to become a counselor for the young new monarch, Charles I of Spain. He advised the king on matters that dealt with the Spanish portion of his domains, and became the emperor's constant companion. In 1528, the fall of the Chancellor Mercurino Gattinara, allowed Francisco de los Cobos to be named to the leadership of the council of State, from where he could influence imperial policy.
