A King Travels

This chapter focuses on royal and princely entries as well as royal visits. Beginning with Ferdinand III's proto-entry into Seville in 1248, it traces the subtle changes that occurred in how kings entered or visited the great city on the banks of the Guadalquivir, from Alfonso XI's iconic entry in 1327 to Philip II's solemn entry in 1570. It then draws the important distinction between the prince or king's first visit to a city and subsequent sojourns there. The first entry usually, but not always, called for some unusual or unique gesture. Most often this meant that the king would enter the city and progress along a pre-selected route under a palio (a canopy or baldachin). The chapter also looks at the triumphal entry of Fernando of Antequera into Seville after his great victory over Granada's armies in 1401.
