A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. This work deals with the reign of Pedro I of Castile (1350-1369), known as The Cruel, one of the most notorious and misunderstood figures in the annals of peninsular history. This is the first book on the subject that analyzes Pedro s rule in light of social, political, diplomatic, and economic conditions in mid-14th century Castile. Using extant primary documentation from archival sources and the most recent findings of scholars from various fields, the book explores in detail the historical basis for Pedro s reputation and the extent to which this reputation unfairly rests on the testimony of Pero Lopez de Ayala, the reign s principal chronicler. The book provides fresh insights into various aspects of Pedro s career, such as his political aims, relations with religious minorities, and fiscal policies. N° de réf. du libraire AAN9789004100947
