Example text

In the Fornmanna So˙gur, the king falls in love with another man’s wife and sends her husband to England to collect tribute. While he is away, the king violates his wife, only to be found out by a returning messenger who slays him with his battleaxe, prior to being slain himself. Didreks Saga, a Norwegian translation of a German poem, ascribes the rape to King Ermanarich, a central figure in Ostrogothic legend. There are also a number of Danish ballads with a similar plot. Krappe suggests that since no source for Procopius’ story has ever been discovered, it may have been a legend he picked up whilst in Italy during RODERICK AND LA CAVA IN MEDIEVAL HISTORY 25 campaigns against the Goths.

The Crónica de 1344 answers questions about the nature and status of Portuguese historiography, and also responds to the question of how the story of Roderick and La Cava might be interpreted in the context of the contemporary political situation in Portugal and Spain. Almost one hundred years later, around 1440, a Toledan converso reworked his version of the legend in the Refundición toledana de la crónica general de 1344, a text as yet unpublished in its entirety and extant in two main manuscripts, MS 7594 in the Biblioteca Nacional, and MS 2585 in Salamanca University library.

It seems likely that his own bastardy reinforced his obsession with lineages, a preoccupation that spills over into the first redaction of the Crónica de 1344 with its genealogy of the kings of Portugal. Similarly, his personal experiences and his father’s life may have informed his reworking of the story of King Roderick, a man prey to violent passion for a woman who was not his wife, and involved in a disputed succession at the start of his reign. It does not seem implausible that those very additions Count Pedro approved of or made himself to the version of Rasis had special resonance for him.
