Jaume el Conquired - James I

(2 February 1208 – 27 July 1276)

Jaume el Conquired is the Catalan name for James I. He was the King of Aragon, Count of Barcelona, and Lord of Montpellier from 1213 to 1276. He expanded the Crown of Aragon on all sides: into Valencia to the south, Languedoc to the north, and the Balearic Islands to the east. By a treaty with Louis IX of France, he integrated the county of Barcelona from nominal France into his crown. As a legislator and organizer, he occupied a high place among the Spanish kings. He was important for the development of Catalan, sponsored Catalan literature and wrote a partly-autobiographical chronicle of his reign called the Llibre dels fets.
