Biography of Alfonso X of Castile

Alfonso X of Castile, byname Alfonso the Wise, or the Learned, Spanish Alfonso el Sabio, was born in Toledo in 1221. He was king of the Crown of Castile from 1252, the year in which his father, Fernando III of Castile, the Saint, died. He would remain so until his own death on April 4, 1284 in Seville.

Alfonso X fostered the development of a cosmopolitan court that encouraged learning. Jews, Muslims, and Christians were encouraged to have prominent roles in his court. As a result of his encouraging the translation of works from Arabic and Latin into the vernacular of Castile, many intellectual changes took place, including the encouragement of the use of Castilian as a primary language of higher learning, science, and law.

This is just an ornamental item, not suitable for combat or any other practical use!
