Summary

A French translation of the Spanish work El tizón de la nobleza española, o, Máculas y sambenitos de sus linajes composed in the mid-16th century. This manuscript is a genealogical investigation into the origins of the most prominent aristocratic families of Spain and Portugal, presented by the author to king Philip II. This is a controversial treatise because, in seeking to defend the purity of the lineage of his own nephew (maquis of Cañette), Mendoza traces the origins of the Iberian aristocracy to Jewish and Moorish ancestors. The author begins by citing the case of Ferdinand (Fernando) Alonso de Toledo, who converted from Islam to Christianity during the reign of Alonso VI and was the ancestor of several noble families. Similarly, a Jewish conversion Ruy Capon is designated as the founding ancestor of several noble families in Portugal and in Castile. There is an addendum to the original work, tracing the ancestors and the descendants of Paul of Burgos. He was a wealthy and prominent Jew who converted to Christianity and became an archbishop and Lord Chancellor under Castilian king Henry III. Although the work circulated widely in mansucript form, it was not printed until 1849.
