- Rider(s):James I of Aragon
(1208-1276), known as the Conqueror was King of Aragon. His long reign saw the expansion of the Crown of Aragon on all sides: into Valencia to the south, Languedoc to the north, and the Balearic Islands to the east. By a treaty with Louis IX of France, he wrested the county of Barcelona from nominal French sovereignty and integrated it into his crown. His part in the Reconquista was similar in Mediterranean Spain to that of his contemporary Ferdinand III of Castile in Andalusia.
- Sculptor(s):Clarasó y Daudi, Enrique
