King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella Rare Signed Royal Decree From 1491 During Their Reign as King & Queen of Spain — Regarding Land Dispute for a Soldier — With COA From University Archives

The Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand II and Isabella I signed Royal decree as King and Queen of the Spanish Empire, dated 14 May 1491. Signed in large bold writing, ”Yo el Rey” (I the King) and ”Yo la Reyna” (I the Queen). Document instructs Juan Alfonso Serrano, a highly ranked ”pesquisidor” for the Crown, to allow a soldier, Juan Garcia Guerrero, to keep his land. At this time, Spain was driving out the Moors from southern Spain which necessitated someone to allocate these re-conquered lands. Serrano was the powerful individual responsible for this land allocation, in addition to his role of uniformly applying Spanish law. Document translates in full, ”From the King and the Queen / Bachelor Juan Alonso Serrano, Distributor of land in the city of Seville. By Juan Garcia Guerrero, a squire in our guards, it was made known to us of the continued good services of his father and grandfather, under the command of the city, and that they were sent out to the war against Portugal, where were stolen their horses and armor, and they made use of the spring and some land. He says they took it out of necessity to sustain themselves acquiring the farm that we had ordered given to some of their friends and later, settling there with their family, they gave to them. Now he says you wish to take from his possession the farm he has there that we had granted from what had belonged to the Moor Sufuz, and you say he should not enjoy use of that property. / He entreats and asks us because of our association with this to send you proof. For that end we order you to allow him to have and possess that farm in the manner he now has it and not to take it from him due to our volition in this matter, and so make an exception in consideration of the services he and his ascendants have done for us. Done in Barcelona the fourteenth of the month of May of One Thousand and Four Hundred and Ninety and One Years. / [signed] I the King I the Queen / By order of the King and Queen / Juan de la Parra / Copy so that Juan Alonso Serrano, Distributor of land in Seville, does not take from Juan Garcia Guerrero the possession of the farm that he was granted.” Additionally signed by three nobleman as witnesses.

King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella Signed Royal Decree From 1498 as King & Queen of Spain — Regarding an Official Involved in the Edict of Expulsion — With COA From University Archives

The Catholic Monarchs, Ferdinand II and Isabella I signed Royal decree as King and Queen of the Spanish Empire, dated 26 March 1498. Signed in large bold writing, “Yo el Rey” (I the King) and “Yo la Reyna” (I the Queen). Intriguing document suggests a corrupted electoral process in the city of Villadolid, possibly at the hands of its Mayor, Dr. Alfonso Ramires de Villaescusa, to whom the letter is addressed. The Monarchs instruct de Villaescusa to appoint the count of Ribadeo as a named representative of the city; de Villaescusa was not friendly with the count of Ribadeo and would supersede him as the Regidor of Villadolid several years later. The count of Ribadeo was a key figure to the Edict of Expulsion in 1492, which forced all practicing Jews out of Spain if they failed to convert to Christianity. In a famous and historical letter regarding the Edict, Ferdinand wrote to the count on 31 March 1492, the same day the Edict was issued, insisting that the Jews must be expelled to stop the “evils and harm which come to the Christians from participating with and conversation with the said Jews,” who continue to “pervert” them. Because of the Edict, many practicing Jews joined the “Converso” (Jews who had converted to Christianity) community; the recipient of this letter, Dr. Alfonso Ramires de Villaescusa, had a daughter who married into the Converso community, which continued to be discriminated against after the Edict. Single page document measures 8.5″ x 9.25″. Folds, light foxing, and irregularly trimmed edges. Overall very good to near fine given age. Accompanied by a COA from University Archives.

Letter translates in full, “Dr. de Villaescusa, our municipal royal representative in the town of Villadolid. It has been reported to us that the municipal councilors of that town are not in agreement about the election of their parliamentary representatives and that some of them have given their votes to the count of Ribadeo, and since the count is the person that he is, we would like him to be one of those named as representatives of that town. We therefore order that you find a way to bring this about. And regarding the salary, let there be given what seems to you to be just for the person who is to have it. From the town of Alcala de Henares, on the 26th day of the month of March of the year 98. / Yo el Rey / Yo la Reyna”. At lower right, “By order of the King and of the Queen / Francisco de Madrid.” Sold for $10,000.

Ferdinand and Isabella Grant Permission to Redevelop Moorish City

Ferdinand II and Isabella I, the Spanish King and Queen, official document signed. The Catholic monarchs sign this document regarding the Moorish city of Loja on 29 November 1489, in the thick of the Spanish Inquisition targeted at Spanish Muslims and Jews. The document concerns the city of Loja (called a ”flower among thorns” by Isabella), which had been captured by Christians in 1486 and, three years later, erupted in tension between different factions concerning its economic development. Ferdinand and Isabella make clear which faction they side with: ”…all the citizens who wish to build taverns and ovens, and grain mills and stamping mills in the city…in ancient buildings…” should be permitted to do so, they write. No action against them is to be taken ”…under penalty of our mercy…” Signed ”Yo el rey” and ”Yo la reyna”. Document is addressed to the judges, justices of the peace, officials, gentlemen and notables of the city of Loja. Single page measures 8.5” x 7.25”. Both royals sign with a large penwork flourish.
