Commentary: Snow 2007: "A curious piece which attempts to find the 'real' Alfonso latent in 15 romances. Its interest lies in Alfonso's supposed Querellas ("Yo salí de la mi tierra") which purportedly lament the rebellion of his son Sancho. Alfonso's tragic end is summed up in the famed statement attributed to him (assumed here as authentic): "De tanto mirar el cielo / se le cayó la corona"."
