Chapter Summary

Ill in Burgos and deprived of the support of the majority of his nobles and allies who had fled to France to seek the king's protection following the executions of don Fadrique and Simón de los Cameros, Alfonso summoned new Cortes in Burgos in order to request the military and economic support he would need against the feared invasion. The CAX, sympathetic to don Sancho, is much more emphatic when stating that the matter of the successor's election was not even debated, but that Alfonso simply ordered the representatives to pay homage to don Sancho. Don Sancho was at the head of the Christian troops on their way to Alcalá de Benzayde, near where they arrived on June 22, 1280. In the recent campaign to punish the king of Granada, don Sancho had distinguished himself in battle like a real hero despite his youth, which much pleased his father.
