Summary

Un pueblo que se siente soberano.
Un reino dividido en dos.
Un gran fresco literario sobre la rebelión de los Comuneros.

Año 1520. Mientras Carlos I se dirige a Alemania para ser coronado emperador, el pueblo castellano se alza en comunidad, reclamando más poder frente al rey y dando comienzo a la Guerra de las Comunidades de Castilla.

Todo el reino se ve envuelto en este feroz conflicto. Guadalajara es el bastión de la Corona en la Castilla del Sur, mientras que Madrid y Toledo son las principales ciudades del bando de los comuneros. En Alcalá de Henares, situada en el núcleo del conflicto, se generarán graves tensiones.

Las vivencias de dos familias vecinas nos guían entre las turbulencias de un momento lleno de peligros: choques militares, espionaje, intrigas políticas, traiciones... Por estas páginas desfilan hombres y mujeres, nobles y plebeyos, oficiales y soldados, religiosos y artesanos: a través de ellos viviremos las esperanzas y temores de una época emocionante y convulsa. Esta es la historia de un conflicto que dividió a un reino en dos. En un lado quedaron los que vestían la cruz blanca y apoyaban al rey. Al otro, los que se bordaron la cruz roja en la pechera.

De su libertad y su lucha surge esta historia.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A town which feels sovereign.
A kingdom divided in two.
A great literary fresco about the Revolt of the Comuneros.
 
It is the year 1520. While Carlos I was in Germany being crowned emperor, the Castilian people rose in revolt, claiming to have more power against the king and starting the War of the Communities of Castile.
 
The entire kingdom is embroiled in this fierce conflict. Guadalajara is defender of the Crown in southern Castilla, while Madrid and Toledo are the main cities on the side of the Comuneros. In Alcalá de Henares, located at the heart of the conflict, serious tensions spawned.
 
The events and activities of two neighboring families guide us through the turbulence of those dangerous times: military clashes, espionage, political intrigues, betrayals ... Men and women, nobles and commoners, officers and soldiers, clergy and artisans, all walk through these pages: through them we will experience the hopes and fears of an exciting and turbulent time.
 
This is the story of a conflict that divided a kingdom into two. On one side were those who wore the white cross and supported the king. On the other, those who embroidered the red cross on their chest. This story arises from their freedom and their struggles.
