Abstract

Between 1462 and 1479 the Crowns of Castile and Aragon were devastated by civil wars plagued by mutual interference. This situation concluded with the dynastic union, which brought with it shared projects and interests that involved other territories, both in the Iberian Peninsula and in the rest of Europe. This session aims to analyse this growing interrelation from a financial point of view. In order to do so, we will pay attention to the institutional changes that this challenge caused, as well as the financial agents who operated in networks that, in many cases, had connections on both sides of the borders.
