La grande aristocratie et le système judiciaire dans le royaume de Castille (XIIe-XIIIe siècles) : les sentences des "ricoshombres" du lignage Haro

Abstract : In the 12th- and 13th-century Castile, the judicial function still played a part in the might of the high aristocracy. Twenty-seven sentences passed by one of the main dynasties, the Haros, can be found in charters and juridical compilations of the Fueros de Castilla. The analysis of this corpus provides a better understanding of the process leading to this instrumentation. Although the ricoshombres were only magistrates through delegation of royal authority, they managed to emphasize the autonomy of their decisions. Even when dealing with usual cases, mainly about ordinary conflicts of the countryside, they made special efforts to reach original conclusions, proving that they could judge according to their own conscience, the albedrío. Criminal cases gave them the opportunity to pose as defenders of high juridical principles, whereas they were actually acting in order to preserve the interests of the nobility and of their own family.
