MARTINEZ PEREZ, J.M.; MARTINEZ PEREZ, J.Á.; DOMINGUEZ SANCHEZ, S.  y  MARTINEZ RODRIGUEZ, J.M.. The horses and the Orders of Chivalry: a vision through "The Seven-Part Code" of Alfonso XI "The Wise" and other documents. Sanid. Mil. [online]. 2014, vol.70, n.4, pp.309-317. ISSN 1887-8571.

The honor code followed by the medieval knight was a relatively late achievement -during the 12th century, approximately-, mainly thanks to the Church in order to control the abuses of primitive warriors. Social and cultural changes increased evolution. For this work, some documents from the 13th century have been used, which show the importance of Hispanic Horses of that time, in special for their military services against muslims. Besides, the most interesting information from The Seven-Part Code of Alfonso X, "The Wise", has been extracted and it shows how the knights and their weapons (the ideal weapon the horse) were considerated during the Middle Ages. All these documents are essential to understanding this historical epoch and the next period, with the union of peninsular crowns and the consolidation of a unique Army for Spain, with the Cavalry as a central axis.

Palabras clave : Military Order; Horse; Crusades; Alfonso X; The Seven-Part Code.
