The first autobiography of a medieval king. As Philip II said at the grave of James I, he was "... one of the greatest kings and captains the world has ever had...".

At that point, Jaime I, King of Aragon, Majorca and Valencia, Count of Barcelona and Urgell, and lord of Montpellier had ceased to exist for more than three centuries.

However, his reign was not an ordinary one, but it stood out due to its important military campaigns, since he managed to conquer two kingdoms from the Muslims and incorporate them to his states (Valencia and Majorca), an impossible dream that gave him international fame.

Furthermore, at the cultural level, he left us a great literary treasure: his own autobiography, El Llibre del Feyts (The Book of the Facts), where he narrates his life from childhood to his death, including his major military exploits and political successes as well as everyday anecdotes and daily details, which makes its reading very easy.

The transcription of the book was finished at the monastery of Poblet, by the hand of Celestí Destorrents, from a master copy which is lost today.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
