The Boy King and the Massacre

The coat of arms of the city of Avila has the curious image of a young king in a kind of castle/church. As you might be guess, there is a story behind it and one that is as fascinating as it is tragic. And it represents the complexity of the geopolitical situation in Spain during the early 12th century. History? Legend? Both? Listen and enjoy and let us know what you think.
