Chapter Summary

Count Pedro Ansúrez was surely the most prominent and probably the greatest Leonese noble of his time. That importance was reflected in the notices of the chronicles of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries where he was conceded an attention exceeded only by that given to the Castilian noble, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, El Cid. The first of these histories is the Chronica Naierensis, whose recent editor, in his critical edition of the text, rehearses the bases of its dating and comes to the conclusion that the text, as we presently have it, most probably derives from after 1185. The continuing growth of Count Pedro Ansúrez?s fame next found expression in Archbishop Rodrigo Jiménez de Rada?s De Rebus Hispanie, completed in 1243.
