Chapter Summary

The Seville Cortes, held in the middle of the campaign against the king of Granada, dealt firstly with how to finance the campaign so that it would not lose the gains and momentum of the last weeks. Alfonso was less worried about the economic challenges facing the kingdom than the political ones, in particular, solving the controversy with Philip III over the de la Cerda princes and the return of the best part of the Castilian nobility, who had sought refuge and compensation from the French king. From Córdoba, Sancho left for Castile to recruit new supporters for his cause. He began by directing his epistolary campaign to the nobles and clergy, the towns and villages of the kingdom, openly inciting them to rebellion against his father and inviting them to an assembly, which would take place in Valladolid in the month of April 1282.
