Chapter Summary

On September 1, 1271, almost three years after Clement IV's death, a new pope, Gregory X (1272-1276), was finally elected. Teobaldo Visconti was an Italian from Piacenza, and at the time of his election he was in Tolemaida (Saint John of Acre) with Prince Edward of England's crusade. Alfonso had been officially invited by the pope to participate in the Council of Lyon (1274). In early March 1274, Alfonso X summoned a new Cortes in Burgos. The main topic was: "the matter of sending knights to the Roman Empire", that is, getting the approval of a contingent of knights to accompany the king on his journey to Italy. In early October 1274 Alfonso was in Alicante preparing his trip to Lyon to meet the pope. Alfonso left Beaucaire between the end of July and the beginning of September 1275.
