In the course of the later Middle Ages, England and the Iberian Peninsula developed a lively chivalric relationship that has left its mark on world history and culture. Through crusades, dynastic marriages, tournaments, romances, and visual artifacts, knights and aristocrats of the British Isles and Iberia built up a tradition of chivalric collaboration and rivalry. In Chivalry and Exploration, 1298–1630, I sketch the connection from the fourteenth through the sixteenth centuries.1 This essay explores the dimensions of this dynamic Anglo-Iberian chivalric relationship in more detail in the context of European cultural geography within and beyond the medieval period.
