Commentary: Notes from Snow 2007rn"The focus is on CSM 185. Unlike others of the CSM — which have been shown by contemporary documents to reflect events accurately — the cantiga and its border incident is unrecorded. M., through a study of the events and the toponymic references, and relying on the 'historicity' of similar poetic narrations in Alfonso's compilation, proposes that the treason outlined in the text may also reflect an actual historical event."
