The Palace of Diego Gómez (1: Tomb of Fernán Gómez)

Tomb of Fernán Gómez - Tomb of Fernán Gómez

[Part of a series of posts and pages dedicated to Sancha de Ayala]

The palace of Diego Gómez, one of the magnificent Mudejar-Gothic palaces in the old heart of the city of Toledo, long ago became the Franciscan convent of Santa Isabel de los Reyes; but it has only recently (2005) become a “convent-museum” with increased public access. His daughter Sancha de Ayala has a certain genealogical cachet as a ‘gateway’ ancestor linking medieval Spanish ancestry to numerous Anglo-American descendants (along with Eleanor of Castile or the daughters of Pedro the Cruel, but not too many others). Daughter of a well-connected minor noble family caught in the web of civil strife in the reign of Pedro the Cruel, and further caught in the web of the English interventions in Spanish affairs, she went to England as lady-in-waiting to a queen-in-exile, Constance, wife of John of Gaunt, joining the minor English nobility with her marriage to Sir Walter Blount (a trusted follower of Gaunt, who had diplomatic and military experience in Spain).

Sancha’s life prior to her migration to England is difficult to flesh out for those who have little familiarity with Spain (or Spanish) or medieval lives more generally. But she is relatively unusual—and unusually accessible—because her paternal and maternal family houses are preserved in essentially medieval condition; they would be recognizable to her if she were to visit them now. Her mother’s ancestral compound we’ll look at later—it is a castle in the countryside of Alava, near Bilbao. Her father’s palace is in the heart of the old city of Toledo. Here is one of the exterior doors, built by Sancha’s brother Pedro Suárez de Toledo (and bearing his—and her—paternal and maternal arms):

Diego Gómez de Toledo (¿?—c.1374), noble castellano del siglo XIV, I señor de Casarrubios del Monte y de Valdepusa, es conocido por su importante descendencia.


Hijo de Gómez Pérez de Toledo y de Teresa García de Toledo, fue notario mayor y alcalde mayor del reino de Toledo.

Son of Gómez Pérez, senior dispenser of King Peter I and senior Sheriff of Toledo. Its ancestry constitutes an important lineage of Knights Mozarabs Toledanos, whose members had occupied the cusp of the courteous offices since the minority of Alfonso XI. He reinforced the family lineage by marrying Inés de Ayala, the sister of Royal Chancellor and writer Pedro López de Ayala.

His political career began at the hands of his uncles, senior officers of the Court of Infante Don Pedro. He Was Armed Knight of the Order of the Band in 1348. In 1352 He was the leader of the squires of the King's body. He Was A major notary of the Kingdom of Toledo and mayor of Toledo until his death.

From the beginning of the reign of Peter I until 1366 he was faithful to the King, intervening with him in many moments of Castilian history. In his capacity as a notary, he gave faith in the Castilian Courts, already from the Valladolid of 1351. As vassal and Warrior, he accompanied his relatives to the King in the "sight of Tejadillo", a meeting in which a faction of the nobility demanded royal reconciliation with the lawful wife, Blanca de Borbón. Being the leader of the squires of the King's body, he participated in the arrest of the noble Alfonso Fernandez Coronel, who was entrusted in his Villa de Aguilar, who was accused of treason and execution. The property of this noble was distributed among the Royals, and Diego Gomez was the lordship of Casarrubios del Monte.

He also took part in the so-called "War of The Two Pedros", which pitted Peter i With PETER IV The ceremonious Of Aragon, receiving as a reward the Lordship Of Valdepusa.

Diego Gomez of Toledo, by Wikipedia

Son of Gómez Pérez de Toledo and Teresa García de Toledo, and a descendant of the Mozarabic noble families of the city of Toledo, [ 1 ] he was a senior notary and mayor of the kingdom of Toledo . In 1352, King Pedro I of Castile , whose "guardian of his body", [ 2 ] notified the mayors and the bailiff of Casarrubios del Monte that he had granted Diego Gómez de Toledo the town of Aguilar y Monturque that it had been in the power of Alfonso Fernández Coronel , whom the king confiscated, accusing him of treason. [ 3 ]In that same year he donated the place of Casarrubios del Monte that had also belonged to Alfonso Fernández Coronel. [ 2 ] The king also granted him the place of Arroyomolinos and the jurisdiction of Valdepusa. [ 4 ]

In 1366, he changed sides and stopped supporting King Pedro, probably due to the grievances suffered by his family, and allowed Enrique de Trastamara to enter Toledo, who later confirmed all his assets and granted him what had belonged to his uncle Gutierre Fernández de Toledo. [ 4 ] In 1374, King Henry II confirmed to his widow and children all the royal grants he had received
