El rey, el emperador, el tirano – el concepto del poder e ideal político en la cultura intelectual alfonsina

Cuadernos de Historia del Derecho. 2014. No. 21. P. 229-242.

The subject of this article is the concept of power developed by the jurists of Alfonso the Wise in the Partidas. The main role of the king as the political and spiritual leader of his Kingdom is shown through a system of oppositions. The existing main distinction between the king and emperor is also seen in the alphonsine doctrine: the power of the former has a mystical character, while the second is based on purely rational grounds.
