Overview

Discover the journey of one of the most powerful kingdoms of the Middle Ages. Its expansion across the Mediterranean Sea and its zenith, with figures of the stature of Jaime I the Conqueror, San Vicente Ferrer, Pedro II the Great, Ramon Llull or Admiral Roger de Flor, and Fernando II the Catholic King. With A Brief History of the Crown of Aragon the reader will discover how the dynastic union of the Kings of Aragon with the Counts of Barcelona allowed the expansion of the Catalonian-Aragonese domains, via force of arms, beyond the Iberian Peninsula to become one of the most powerful maritime empires with possessions in the Mediterranean. In this work the reader will learn the devastating effects of the demographic and agricultural crisis that exhausted the available resources. The reader will also learn about the progressive estrangement between the institutions and the king, and will discover the most outstanding samples of the literary and cultural activity.
