Majorca coins catalog with values

 

The honor of returning Majorca to the Christian world belongs to James I, King of Aragon. He made this decision on November 16, 1228, at the end of a reception given by a rich Tarragona merchant, who, distributing to the guests the objects brought from the island, painted it, sparing no enthusiastic words.

Having gathered his vassals in Barcelona, the young king easily persuaded them that it would be necessary to take the Balearic Islands from the Moors before setting out for Murcia, as previously planned. Fifteen thousand foot soldiers and one thousand five hundred and fifty horsemen loaded onto one hundred and fifty ships and landed in the bay of Santa Ponsa on September 10, 1229. On December 31 of the same year his Aragonese majesty entered Palma in triumph.

Three months later the king promulgated a charter proclaiming the principles of equality, liberty, and self-government, making it the most progressive for its time. Courts became independent, lands were ceded to the colonies, owners were given full freedom to dispose of their property, and houses were declared inviolable.

After the death of James I, his son Pedro the Great received the kingdoms of Aragon and Catalonia, while his brother James II continued to rule Majorca, Roussillon and the city of Montpellier.

Under James II, the cathedral of Palma (promised by his father), the castle of Belvera, the palace of Valldemos, where La Cartuja is today, and the walls of Alcudia were built. Many small towns sprang up: Llucmayor, Manacor, Felanich and others. The island began to mint its own currency. Trade and shipbuilding flourished.

In 1311. Sancho II succeeded Jaime II on the throne. In 1324 he died without leaving a direct heir, and his nine-year-old nephew ascended the throne. A period of decline then begins for the kingdom. Pedro III, King of Aragon, had already hatched plans to invade Majorca, culminating in the Battle of Llucmayor, in which James III suffered a crushing defeat.
From then on, the Kingdom of Majorca became part of the Kingdom of Aragon, with which it was later integrated into Spanish power through the marriage of Ferdinand of Aragon and Isabella of Castile.
