Title : Alfonso X, "Cantiga 235," and the Events of 1269-1278 ["Cantiga 235," one of hundreds of lyrics Alfonso wrote in praise of the Virgin Mary, gives a broad historical perspective on the poet’s reign as King of Castile. While the poem praises Mary throughout, it also chronicles a series of personal betrayals and gives insight into the king’s own ill health and suffering. The article includes a detailed account of the major events in Alfonso’s reign, including the execution of his own brother on the charge of sodomy. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
