Abstract

This session will focus on the composition of the armies in the kingdoms of Aragon and Navarre through the 11th and 14th centuries, with a particular emphasis on the participation of the nobility in the war effort. The first paper will explore the military obligations the lower nobility in Aragon, the infanzones, had to fulfill in order to maintain their privileged status and their tax exemptions. The second paper will discuss the military transformations experienced by the Aragonese armies between the 13th and the 14th centuries and the pivotal role played by the nobility during that period. The last paper will analyse, through a series of fiscal sources, the costs associated with waging war in Navarre during the first half the 14th century.
