Summary

«Los nacionalismos manipulan la Historia para justificar su visión del pasado. Jamás existió una Corona catalano-aragonesa, y así lo demuestro en esta novela sobre Jaime I el Conquistador.» -José Luis Corral

Ningún soberano gobernó en España tanto tiempo como él, ninguno ganó tantas batallas, ninguno conquistó tantos reinos como Jaime I el Conquistador, rey de Aragón, de Valencia y de Mallorca, conde de Barcelona y de Urgel, señor de Montpellier.

Esta es su prodigiosa historia, su asombrosa vida de novela, su apasionante leyenda en el tiempo más brillante de la Edad Media.

Con la maestría narrativa que lo caracteriza, el catedrático de Historia Medieval y novelista José Luis Corral despliega ante los ojos del lector una fascinante historia de conquistas, rivalidades y pasiones que resulta imprescindible para comprender la configuración de la España contemporánea y rebatir, con el rigor del relato histórico impecablemente documentado, el mito independentista de la mal llamada «Corona catalano-aragonesa».

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

"Nationalisms manipulate History to justify their vision of the past. There never was a Catalan-Aragonese Crown, and I prove it in this novel about James I The Conqueror.’ -Jose Luis Corral
 
No sovereign ruled in Spain as long as he, none won so many battles, none conquered as many kingdoms as James I The Conqueror, King of Aragon, Valencia and Mallorca, Count of Barcelona and Urgel, Lord of Montpellier.
 
This is his prodigious story, his amazing life told as a novel, his gripping legend in the brightest time of the Middle Ages.
 
With the narrative mastery that characterizes him, the professor of Medieval History and novelist José Luis Corral unfolds before the reader’s eyes a fascinating story of conquests, rivalries, and passions that is essential to understanding the configuration of contemporary Spain and refute, with the rigor of an impeccably documented historical account, the independence myth of the misnamed ‘Catalan-Aragonese Crown.’ "
