During the Middle Ages, Kings and Queens from the different Kingdoms that conformed the Iberian Peninsula political geography protected some sites and their buildings because of their implications in the Royal ceremonial. In this session we will deal with the King’s patronage in the Portuguese Cathedrals building and the ceremony of coronation in Iberian Peninsula, first in its Liturgical practice and Architectonic environment and then in the illuminated images in the Castilian, Aragonese and Navarre Ceremonial manuscripts that we have preserved.
