Course Description

The House of Trastámara came to power in Spain in 1369, when Enrique de Trastámara, an illegitimate son of Alfonso XI of Castile and Leïn, slew his half-brother Pedro I and became king. The reign of the Trastámaras ended with the death of Fernando el Catïlico and the proclamation of Carlos I, the first Habsburg monarch, as King of Spain in 1516. It is this enormously rich period in Spanish history that will be our focus over the course of the semester.
