Abstract

Asturias is a northern region of Castillian kingdom. From a local perspective but related with the kingdom’s reality we will analyze the performance of rule in Asturias during the 14th century according to three levels: nobility, clergy and public notary. The Fernández de Quiñones family, Merinos de Asturias, is presented in the chronicle as an example of nobility. But, do they really achieve the ideal of government nobility? The main aim Gutierre de Toledo, Archbishop of Oviedo, has for his diocese is to reach the rectitude and morality of the clergy. But, was his reforming programme really obeyed? The castillian kings have provided public notariat with a legal corpus, but there also exists an ancient tradition for written documents. So, what prevails in notarial practice, new rules or ancient tradition?
