Amadís de Gaula is a masterpiece of fantasy literature in Spanish and the most famous of the so-called books of chivalry, which were all the rage throughout the 16th century in Spain. At the end of the 15th century Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo prepared its definitive version, whose oldest known edition is that of Zaragoza 1508, with the name of The four books of Amadís de GaulaHowever, it is a much earlier work, which already existed in three books since the 14th century, as recorded in the works of Chancellor Pero López de Ayala and Pero Ferrús. Montalvo confesses to having amended the first three books and being the author of the fourth. Everything indicates that the original version of Amadis was Portuguese. It has been attributed to various authors: the Portuguese Chronicle of Gomes Eanes de Azurara, written in 1454, mentions as its author a certain Vasco de Lobeira who was knighted in the battle of Aljubarrota (1385). Other sources say that the author was a certain João de Lobeira, and not the troubadour Vasco de Lobeira.
The acceptance of the Amadís de Gaula determined that this work became a paradigm or reference model for other writers. The story of the heroic knight-errant who stood out for his idyllic love fidelity was a starting point for a long-lasting literary and publishing genre.
The books of chivalry were written and successfully disseminated during the same years in which, after the discovery of the New World, the Castilians set out to conquer and colonize lands where many placed their hopes and dreams. Curiously, between these two phenomena, the literary and the historical, there will be a close symbiotic relationship.

In Greece, he was a king married to a sister of the emperor of Constantinople, in whom there were two very beautiful sons, especially the eldest, whom Apolloton had named, who as much of strength of body as of effort of heart in his time none was equal to him. For this, giving himself to the sciences of all arts with his subtle ingenuity, which very seldom with great courage is agreed, so much of them he reached, that as well as the clear Moon among the stars, more than all those of his time shone, special in those of necromancy, although by him things impossible seem to be worked.
For this king, his father of these two infants, being very rich of money and poor of life, according to his great old age, seeing himself in the extreme of death, commanding that his son Apollodon, being older the king, did not remain, to the other his great treasures and books, which many were, and were worth much, Left. But he was not content with this, with many tears to his father said that with that almost disinherited he was. The father twisting his hands, not being able to do more, in great anguish his heart was. But that famous Apollandon, who thus for the great affronts as for the cars of virtue his worthy heart was, seeing the care of the father and the littleness of the brother said that because his comforted soul was, that taking the treasures and his books, his brother would leave the kingdom, of which the king, His father, very comforted, with many tears of pity, gave him his blessing.
