King Ferdinand rules from his palace in Cádiz, Spain. After learning of the Fountain of Youth, King Ferdinand sends his most trusted agent, known only as the Spaniard, to find and destroy the Fountain, because as a devout Catholic, he saw it as an abomination in the eyes of God.
During the night, two fishermen arrive at the palace of King Ferdinand, carrying a piece of cloth that contains an old man who claims to have traveled with the Spanish conquistador Ponce de León. The man gives a logbook that belonged to Ponce de León to Ferdinand. Ferdinand looks page by page finding nothing, but finally discovers an ancient symbol in one of the pages. Right then, he realized that the legends of the Fountain of Youth were true. King Ferdinand then sends the Spaniard to find and destroy the Fountain.
When Jack Sparrow is taken to the Palace of King George II, the king learns that Ferdinand has devised a plan to seek the Fountain of Youth to gain eternal life just as he attempts to recruit Jack on a quest to find the Fountain which failed due to his escape, to which the king never realized that Ferdinand sent his men to find and destroy the Fountain, rather than gain immortality from it. However, Ferdinand's plan to destroy the Fountain was successful just as the Spaniard and his men to return to Spain to report their king that their assignment was completed.
