The Wreck of Catalonia

This chapter focuses on the efforts of remensas to promote their cause and the opposition they faced. In March 1452, Alfonso instructed Queen Maria to protect the remensas from harassment and ensure that they freely pursued their plea. Like that of the Busca, the cause of the remensas had to contend in the Neapolitan court with the influence of its enemies. Prominent among these were the deputies dispatched there by the Catalan Corts in December 1451. Pleading the Constitutions of Catalonia, they argued for an annulment or at least suspension of the remensa action.
