The medieval Castilian King Alfonso X «the Learned» (ruled 1252 - 1284) and his grandson, King Dinis of Portugal (ruled 1279 - 1325), not only were the two most prolific poets of the Galician-Portuguese Cancioneiros but also figured prominently as patrons of culture and the arts. This book examines the influence of Alfonso X and his court on Dinis in the fields of translation, law, higher learning, historiography, and poetry.

Review:

«No one else has dealt so completely with the subject under discussion... Dr. Ackerlind is a scholar of good repute and sound background.» (John E. Keller, University of Kentucky, Emeritus)
«Ackerlind has brought together facts that investigators in particular fields have long known, but that no one had previously assembled into a coherent picture. She has assembled that picture and has drawn from it interesting and valuable conclusions. The Alfonsine nature of major aspects of Portuguese court culture in the period studied is now, thanks to her, clearly established. I have learned much from this book.» (Alan Deyermond, Queen Mary and Westfield College, London)
