Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about the story of the reign of Wamba. Anointing section derives from Julian from where it finds it way into the Crónica de Alfonso III and also, via Lucas, into subsequent histories. It begins with Lucas de Tuy's Chronicon Mundi which, although is not the earliest text dealt with, can be seen as a suitable starting point from which, or against which, most of the subsequent chronicle tradition is written. A superficial look at the construction of Lucas's narrative reveals that the bishop's account contains all but two of the narrative blocs inherited from previous accounts of Wamba, namely the restoration of Toledo and the legend. It concerns the status of Rodrigo's chronicle for future writers. In one sense then the wheel of narrative construction has come full circle, for the techniques used here are deeply reminiscent of those employed in the mid to late thirteenth century.

Keywords: Anointing; Chronicon Mundi ; Cronica de Alfonso ; Julian; Lucas; Rodrigo; Toledo; Wamba
