Summary

This carta executoria, issued in the name of Charles I of Spain in favor of Alonso Mendez de Parada of the city of Huete in response to his litigation to establish noble status (pleito), was written in Granada and signed on February 25, 1538. It has elaborate illuminations on the first pages that are typical of this type of document, but the text, written in a rounded Gothic script, is mostly undecorated except for occasional illuminated letters marking the names of ancestors. The document is sewn in a single gathering with a multicolored cord.
