A mis padres, Luis y Estrella. Acknowledgments Over the course of many years of work on Maria de Luna and the history of the Crown of Aragon I have become indebted to great number of colleagues, archivists, institutions, family members and friends. My work began with my doctoral dissertation ?Maria de Luna, una reina entre la piedad y el poder? (Universitat Aut?noma de Barcelona, Spain, 2002), which was completed with the advice and support of my supervisor Prof. Jos? Enrique Ruiz Dom?nec and the members of my committee: Fr. Francisco de Mox? y Montoliu (Universidad San Pablo-C E U), Salvador Claramunt (UB), Frederic Udina, Antoni Udina, Jill Webster (U. of Toronto), Dawn Bratsch-Prince (Iowa State U.), and Anna Castellano (Museu-Monastir de Pedralbes). I would also like to show my appreciation to several colleagues for their general guidance and concrete suggestions: Jes?s Alturo (UAB), Jacint Duran OFM Cap., Maria Teresa Ferrer i Mallol (CSIC), Asunci?n Blasco (UZ), Helios Borja, Fr. Ovidio Cuella, Raquel Madrid, Patxi Guerrero, fray Adolfo OFM conv., Benjam?n Agull?, Jes?s Maria Oliver and Carles Vela (CSIC). Albert Corbeto (RABLB) deserves special thanks. In addition, I am very grateful to the personnel of the Arxiu de la Corona d?Arag? where I conducted most of my research, particularly to Jaume Riera and Albert Torra, whose willingness to share their deep knowledge of collections of the archive and the history of the Crown of Aragon was instrumental. Also many thanks to Rafael Sim?n (AMS), Juan Jos? Morales (Diputaci?n de Zaragoza) and Jes?s Aznar (AML) for facilitating access to other collections, and to the Duchess of Luna for permitting me to consult the family archive in Pedrola. Thanks are also due to the Ministerio de Educaci?n y Ciencia of Spain for a two-year postdoctoral fellowship, which was held at the Center for Cultural Studies of the University of California Santa Cruz, providing me with the time and resources to write this book. The Directors of the Center, Gail Hershatter and Chris Connery, generously provided me not only with office facilities, but an exciting intellectual environment within which to complete my work. The History and Literature departments at UCSC, chaired by Lynn Westerkamp and Mary-Kay Gamel respectively, have provided me with the opportunity to teach courses which have challenged me to consider and reconsider ideas regarding the history of Iberia, pre-Modern Europe, and women. Chapter Three of this book was read at the California Medieval Seminar (Fall 2006) where I received the thoughtful advice of many participants, specially Judith Bennet (USC), Teolifo Ruiz (UCLA) and Patrick Geary (UCLA). Chapter Two was presented to the Mediterranean Studies Reading Group of the University of California Santa Cruz (February 2007). The comments and suggestions which I received from the participants were extremely useful, particularly those of Sharon Kinoshita and Deanna Shemek. The former deserves special thanks for her close reading of my manuscript, many suggestions and generous help with editing. Many friends demonstrated unflagging and enthusiastic support for this project. I am very grateful to my parents, whose constant and unquestioning encouragement inspired me to attend graduate school and to realize my academic aspirations. Last and far from least, I am very grateful to my husband, Brian Catlos, for his constant advice, close reading of my work, and love. Abbreviations ACA Arxiu de la Corona d?Arag?

In order to maintain consistency and a sense of historical fidelity, as a general rule individuals? names are given in the variant which corresponds to their domestic linguistic environment. Hence, King Joan ?the Hunter? is preferred over ?John? or ?Juan? ? the Barcelona dynasty?s ?native? language was Catalan. As a consequence, some equivalent names appear in different forms when referring to different people (e.g.: Leonor and Elionor, Joan and Juan, and so on). Exceptions are made for Popes and for individuals who are normally referred to by a standard form (e.g. Eleanor of Aquitaine). The honorifics and titles of kings and queens are given in English. Technical terms, such as the names of court officers, taxes, and currency, which pertain to the Crown of Aragon are given in Catalan (e.g.: infant rather than infante). Likewise, the Catalan numeration of rulers is preferred (e.g. ?Pere III? rather than ?Pedro IV?). When a place name is an element of a royal or comital title the English version of the name is used, when a place name serves as a surname the local variant is used (e.g. ?Count Jaume of Urgell,? but ?Jaume d?Urgell?). Similarly place names are provided in the version which is used today by their inhabitants, unless a standard English version of the name exists. Hence, Girona (Catalan) is preferred over Gerona (Castilian), but Rome (English) over Roma (Italian).
