Excerpt from Bernardo Del Carpio: An Historical Novel of the Eighth Century

One of the gentlemen was distinguished from the rest by his noble air, and by the splendour of his ancestral badges. Beneath a bohemio, or short cloak, furred with ermine, he wore a doublet of cloth of silver upon a green ground well-fitted hose, a hat with feathers, fastened by a brooch of diamonds, and buskins of morocco; in his hand was a javelin, a hunter's cutlass at his girdle, and upon his breast the red riband of knighthood, insignia which, in former times, almost always denoted a person of the royal line. In fact, the person we have been describing was no other than Alfonso the Second, called the Chaste, King of Leon and Asturias, who ?ourished near the end of the eighth century, and who, with the very limited resources which his reduced king dom afforded, not only knew how to preserve his independence from the Moors of Spain, but also to obtain signal victories over his enemies abroad.
