Footnotes

  • The Siete Partidas, the statutory code which formed the centerpiece of legislative activity under Alfonso X, was generally thought to have been completed around 1265. Representing the culmination of the acceptance of common law in Spain, it was one of the most important judicial works of the Middle Ages and especially influential in South America where it was in use until the nineteenth century.
