Chapter Summary

Excited by the power he had received from the nobility, the clergy, and the representatives of the city councils at the assembly at Valladolid and in the days following, Don Sancho began a southbound tour of Castile, leaving Valladolid in mid-May, while his chancellery, headed at his request by his brother Pedro, began an intense propaganda and public relations campaign. On November 8, 1282, in the royal palace of Seville, Alfonso gave the formal response to the Valladolid deposition sentence, cursing and disinheriting his son. Alfonso remained all this time in Seville, following with great trepidation the course of events in Castile. His epistolary activity and his contacts through special envoys had earned him many supporters, among them, his two sons, Don Juan and don Jaime.
