(6 ll.), 150 ll. *** FIRST EDITION; its next appearance was in the anthology Obras clásicas para la historica de Toledo, 1998. The subject was born in Talavera de la Reina, 1328, and died in Toledo, 18 May 1399. His Gallego family was living in Toledo, with strong economic interests in the region of Talavera. D. Pedro Tenorio began his ecclesiastical career as archdeacon in Toro, then becoming a canon in Zamora. After taking the side of the Trastamaras in the Castilian civil war he was forced into exile in France and Italy, but made good use of this time, studying canon law at Rome, and consolidating his position within the Church. He returned to Castile at the time of the establishment of the papacy in Avignon, participating in the battle of Nájera, where his brother lost his life and he was captured. Released seven months later, in 1371 he was appointed bishop and sent to the diocese of Coimbra. Against the views of Enrique II, Pope Gregory XI appointed him archbishop of Toledo. There he began a comprehensive reform of the ecclesiastical courts until finally Juan I brought him into the Royal Council.He then produced a great monastic reform, participated in the war that attempted to win the Portuguese crown for the king of Castile, and played a key role in developing the Castilian position with regard to the schism in the West. With the death of Juan I, and the advent of Enrique III, as a member of the Council of Regency he suffered imprisonment due to involvement in the conspiracy of several clerics and nobles who wished to facilitate the invasion of Portugal. In 1393, released, he returned to his role in the Court.He is most noted for work in the diocese of Toledo, and in the city in general, particularly in his ability to affect the construction of the cathedral and the Puente del Arzobispo, named in his honor, today called the Puente de San Martín.Provenance: On D. Manuel de Menezes [or Meneses], "Oficial da Armada, em que teve o posto de general . . . m. em 28-VII-1628" see Grande enciclopédia, XVI, 936-7; also Barbosa Machado, III, 310-2. The Casa de Cadaval, headed by the Dukes of Cadaval, was and remains one of the oldest, wealthiest and most important noble families of Portugal. They trace their lineage back to D. Nuno Alvares Pereira de Melo (1638-1727), the first Duke. The library, despite some dispersals, remains one of the the nation's most significant still in private hands.
