Pedro the Cruel of Castile: 1350-1369
BRILL, 1995 - 288 páginas
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-fourteenth 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.
