Abstract

During the last decade, fiscal history has experienced a growing importance in order to explain the Castilian Late Middle Ages. However, there is a considerable lack of research about royal income semiotics, a topic that has been a main factor in academic discussions about Aragon, England, France, or Navarre. In this session, we aim to establish a preliminary approach for further investigation within the question though three fundamental topics. First of all, the beginning of regular royal taxation during the reign of Alfonso X (1252-1284). Secondly, the transformations of such taxations after the reign of Enrique II (1367-1379), first monarch of the House of Trastamara (1367-1504). Finally, the increasing identification between king and realm, which is one of the main characteristics of royal taxation in Castile.
