Abstract

Es bien sabido que Alfonso X mandó componer dos versiones, Primitiva (c. 1270-1271) y Crítica (c. 1282-1284), de la Estoria de España y que ambas quedaron inconclusas a su muerte. Centrandome en la sección final de la Estoria (el relato dedicado a los reinados a partir del de Alfonso VII), la cuestión que plantea este trabajo es el grado de elaboración compilatoria que alcanzaron las dos versiones alfonsíes y su relación genética con las «crónicas generales» compuestas durante las décadas posteriores a la muerte del rey Sabio. Intentar establecer con mayor exactitud la deuda que la cronística post-alfonsí tiene con la Estoria de España original es un paso previo imprescindible para valorar con justeza el significado, ideológico y estético, de las novedades que cada crónica aporta con respecto al modelo alfonsí y mejorar así nuestro conocimiento de ese periodo, un tanto oscuro, de la historia de la historiografía castellana comprendido entre Alfonso X y Fernán Sánchez de Valladolid. = As it is well known, King Alfonso X (1252-1284) ordered the composition of two versions, Primitiva (c. 1270-1271) and Crítica (c. 1282-1284), of his Estoria de España, neither of which were finished during his lifetime. Focusing on the final section of the Estoria (the narrative of the Castilian kings from Alfonso VII onwards), the topic raised here is the degree of completion reached by the two Alphonsine versions and their genetic relationship with the ‘general chronicles’ which were compiled after the king’s death. A more accurate understanding of the debt the post-Alphonsine chronicles have with the original Estoria de España seems a necessary step in order to reach a fairer assessment of the ideological and aesthetical significance of the the variants each chronicle introduces with respect to the Alphonsine model, and thus enhance our knowledge of the somewhat obscure period of the history of Castilian historiography running between Alfonso X and Fernán Sánchez de Valladolid.
