Amadís de Gaula is a masterpiece of fantastic literature in Castilian and the most famous of the so-called books of chivalry, which were all the rage throughout the sixteenth century in Spain. At the end of the fifteenth century Garci Rodríguez de Montalvo prepared his definitive version, whose oldest known edition is that of Zaragoza 1508, with the name of The four books of Amadís de Gaula, but it is a much earlier work, which already existed in three books since the fourteenth century, as recorded in works by 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 very enduring literary and publishing genre.
The books of chivalry are written and disseminated successfully during the same years in which, after the discovery of the New World, the Castilians launch the conquest and colonization of lands where many place their dreams and hopes. Curiously, between these two phenomena, the literary and the historical, there will be a close symbiotic relationship.

THE THIRD BOOK OF AMADÍS DE GAULA BEGINS
IN WHICH IT IS TOLD OF THE GREAT DISCORDS AND TARES THAT IN THE HOUSE AND COURT OF THE KING LISUARTE THERE WAS FOR THE BAD ADVICE THAT GANDANDEL GAVE TO THE KING FOR HARMING AMADIS AND HIS RELATIVES AND FRIENDS, FOR IN THE BEGINNING OF WHICH THE KING COMMANDED ANGRIOTE AND HIS NEPHEW TO LEAVE HIS COURT AND ALL HIS LORDSHIPS AND SENT THEM TO CHALLENGE AND THEY TURNED THE CONFIRMATION OF THE CHALLENGE, AS IT WILL BE TOLD LATER.
The story goes that being killed the sons of Gandandel and Brocadán by the hands of Angriote de Estravaus and his nephew Sarquiles (as we have heard), the twelve knights, with Madasima, with great joy took them to their tents, but King Lisuarte, who took away from the finiestra for not seeing them die, not for the good that wanted them, that already as his parents he considered them bad, but for the honor that Amadis achieved with some impairment of his court. Spending some days that he knew how Angriote and his nephew were better than their wounds that they could ride, he sent them to tell them to leave their kingdoms and not to walk for them anymore, but that he would order it to be remedied, of which those knights complained very much, great complaints showed of it to Don Grumedán and other knights of the court that there honor them was going to see them, especially Don Brián de Monjaste y Gavarte de Valtemeroso, saying that, since the king, forgetting the great services that were done to him in this way, treated them and missed them, that he should not wonder if turned on the contrary weighed in greater quantity what to come than the past, and raising their tents, collected all their company, on the road of the Insula Firme they set, and on the third day they found in a hermitage Gandeza, the niece of Brocadán and friend of Sarquiles, the one who had him locked up where she heard and knew all the evil that her uncle Gandandel against Amadís warned, as it is already told. Which fled from the fear that there was, and there was much pleasure with her, especially Sarquiles, who loved her very much, and taking her with him they continued on their way.”
