Jaume I conquers Valencia once again
Publishing date 11/11/2013
A historical period: the Middle Ages. A king: Jaume I. A jousting field: La Alameda. This is the concept behind the Royal Tournament, a show that displays the true story of the Conquering king. Valencia will return to the Middle Ages until November the 24th, reliving the adventures, predicaments and travels of a monarch who changed the course of history.
Furthermore, The Royal Tournament also showcases the main knights who accompanied King Jaume throughout his adventures in Valencian lands, Blasco de Alagón, Pedro Fernández de Azagra, Pedro Ximén de Urrea, Rodrigo de Lizana, Gimen Pérez de Tarazona, Esteban de Borja, Guillem de Aguiló, on the jousting field, riding their steeds, as well as other characters, such as the Knights Templar, the Knights Hospitaller, heralds, mercenary soldiers and jesters who accompanied him over his lifetime. This show is a tournament that illustrates and reveals the changes that Valencia experienced with the arrival of Jaume I, and it relates his history from the moment of his birth, in 1298, to the inauguration of the Royal Senyera in the times of Pedro IV.
