Sample text

73 In the meanwhile, however, the cagey king had another scheme in the works—Pere had begun to negotiate a marriage. By mating his infant grandson, the younger Martí, to the Sicilian queen, Pere believed that Sicily could be brought under the control of his family with minimal resistance. On the one hand, the islanders would not be able to claim that Maria de Sicilia’s rights had been compromised. On the other, if they did rebel, the elder Martí would be obliged to use his considerable resources to defend his son’s title.

Maria’s contemporary, Christine de Pizan, held that a woman of the upper nobility should also know how to read and write, prepare a budget, and be familiar with property laws—indispensable skills should she find herself running the family estates or acting as seignior for an absent husband. 34 Typical reading for young aristocratic women included the Bible, prayer books, saints’ lives, and courtly novels and poems. Beyond this they learned to ride, to play chess, and other polite games, as well as practice more typically feminine pastimes such as embroidery, singing, music, and dance.

43 With Martí’s assignations decided, the question of Maria’s dower remained. And so, on 6 July 1372 Pere, Elionor de Sicilia, and Archbishop Lope (standing in for Brianda d’Agout, who could not be present), sat down with the young couple to settle the affair. 44 The broad concessions that Brianda and the archbishop of Zaragoza were able to obtain from the king ref lect their skill in negotiating, as well as Pere’s own firm intention of bringing the Luna line and patrimony into the royal orbit.
