Alfonso the Wise

Alfonso X (November 23, 1221, Toledo, Spain - April 4, 1284, Seville, Spain) was a Castilian monarch who ruled as the King of Castile, Leen and Galicia from 1252 until his death. He also was elected King of the Germans (formally King of the Romans) in 1257, though the Papacy prevented his confirmation. He established Castilian as a language of higher learning, founded universities (Salamanca and Toledo) and earned his nicknames "el Sabio" ("the Wise" or "the Learned") and "el Astrelogo" ("the Astronomer") through his own prolific writings, including Galician-Portuguese poetry
