Chapter Summary

The most important nobleman in the kingdom of Aragon was Peter IIs younger brother, Ferdinand, abbot of Montearagn, who countenanced the possibility of taking the throne for himself. In Catalonia, there was no clear leading figure, and, in a contemporary section of the Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium, the monks of Ripoll described with alarm how evils spread across the land and unheard-of confederations and conspiracies arose. San's preoccupation with Montfort and the crusade meant that he paid little attention to what was going on further south. In Aragon, there were uprisings at Huesca, Jaca and Zaragoza, nurtured by Ferdinand, and generally there were a substantial number of barons and clergy who did not agree with the course San was taking and had little confidence in his handling of affairs.
