traditionally, History told us that the Humane Martin, the last king of the House Catalan, died in May 1410 without legitimate offspring. After two years of interregnum, Meeting delegates to Caspe again chooses as the new Spanish monarch Prince, Ferdinand I of Aragon, in front of the Count of Urgell, James Unlucky.
