La política matrimonial de la Casa condal de Barcelona y real de Aragón desde 1213 hasta Fernando el Católico

Salvador Claramunt


As was the case with almost all royal families, marriage politics in the “Casa Condal de Barcelona y Real de Aragón” were constantly subject to change: in connection with particular interests at a given moment, the socio-political climate at the time or for purely personal reasons. An attempt has been made to cover the marriages forged by the Kings of Aragon and Counts of Barcelona, from the death of Peter the Catholic in 1213 up until the time of Ferdinand the Catholic, as well as by other members of the royal familiar who were used to securefriendships, consolidate alliances and to clear the way for or shape future conflicts.
