Lot 283: King of Castile and Leon who ruled from 1390 until his death at just 27 years old (1379–1406). Rare manuscript DS in Spanish, signed "Yo el Rey," one page, 9.5 x 5, September 19, 1392. King Henry confirms the right of Ruy Lopez de Mendoza to wear a sash in acknowledgment of his services rendered to Kings John I and Henry. Loosely attached with thread along the edges to an old transcription. In very good condition, with partial separations to folds, paper loss to edges, and overall toning and staining. Despite his short reign, Henry III pursued an aggressive foreign policy and oversaw a powerful navy that won several victories against the English. A sought-after document over six centuries old.
