The Jews of Navarre in the...

Documented depiction of the economic activities of the Jews and their work at the service of the Crown in this Christian kingdom.

Introduction of Saint James. It is certain that a Bishop sat in Pamplona from the sixth century, and perhaps even earlier. The Episcopal Court dominated the city in the Basque and Roman quarter, la Navarreria, whereas in the twelfth century the bourgeois Francos, who had arrived as pilgrims or travellers, founded new quarters in the peri­phery around the old urban nucleus, and they remained there. For a long time the sovereign preferred to leave the city to the Bishop, and he himself lived in his castles at Estella, Olite, and, principally, at Tudela. In effect the kingdom, enlarged from Sangüesa to the valley of La Soncierra, near Logroño, was squeezed between Aragon and Castille in the province of La Ribera, a narrow territory guarding the passages across the Ebro, essentially that of Tudela. To the north the mountains comprise the most incontestably Navarrese region, the one most heavily populated by indigenous people in localities bearing Basque names. To the south, La Ribera is the most strategic zone, the one most coveted and threatened by the incessant incursions of the neighboring rival kingdoms of Castile and Aragon. In 1234, that kingdom of ten thousand square kilometers, con­taining perhaps sixty thousands inhabitants, the smallest state in the west, was inherited by the nephew of Sancho the Strong, the son of Blanca of Navarre and Thibaut III of Champagne, Count Thibaut IV of Champagne, who became Thibaut I of Navarre. A new epoch began for Navarre. Its sovereigns were Capetians, more concerned with life in France ( in their fiefs and the royal court) than by their Iberian kingdom. Thibaut I, and then his sons Thibaut II and Henri, nevertheless, made real efforts and travelled as far as Pamplona, Estella, or Tudela from time to time, and they observed Navarrian customs in their government. In 1274, Jeanne of Navarre- Champagne, the three year old heir to the throne, was given in marriage to Philippe of France, who became Philip IV the Fair in 1285. He never made an appearance in Navarre, although he bore the royal title thanks to his wife. His oldest son, Louis the Quar-reller, spent only three months there, in the autumn of 1307. His other two sons, who were also kings of France and Navarre, Philip the Tall and Charles the Fair, never went to their little kingdom. 4 Chapter Home | TOC 4  | Index 4
