An Unfortunate Claimant: Jaume el Dissortat, the Rise of the Trastámaras, and beyond the Closing of the Ecumene
This epilogue discusses events following the death of King Martí on the last day of May 1410, which ended the original line of the House of Aragon. The widespread interest in millenarian, apocalyptic, and occult themes, and their intersection with regnal authority, did not perish with the death of Martí. During the reign of Fernando I, the new Castilian king of Aragon, an anonymous cleric composed a moralistic prophecy in response to the new king's ascension to the throne. Moreover, throughout the course of the fifteenth century, the pan-European interest in occult and apocalyptic literature continued to flourish apace. Divination and astrology were not pastimes, but instead significant systems of thought used by people to access a body of information that was always tantalizingly out of reach.
