(Translation.)
7. The Summary of the proceedings of the Procurators of the cities and towns of these kingdoms, assembled in the General Cortes, held in the city of Toro, in the year 1505, is as follows.
In the first place, the original copy of the will of our Lady Queen Isabel, who is in eternal glory, was shown to the said Procurators, and two clauses of the said will concerning the succession, administration and government of these kingdoms were read to them, together with a letter patent, given by the said Queen, Doña Isabel, our Lady, concerning the same subject. [The Procurators] swore allegiance to the very high and mighty Lady, the Queen Doña Juana, our Lady and legitimate firstborn daughter and heiress of the said Lady Queen Isabel, as Queen, Sovereign Lady, and legitimate successor and possessor of these kingdoms and dominions, and called and styled her so thenceforth, and promised and offered her the obedience and homage and servitude which subjects and born vassals were bound to give and offer to her and the very high and mighty Lord King Philip, her lawful husband. They swore at the same time the oaths of homage in the prescribed form to the Lord King Ferdinand, father of the said Queen Juana our Lady, in his quality of administrator and governor of these kingdoms and dominions, according to the contents of the said clauses of the will and the letters patent of the said Lady Queen Isabel, and promised to keep and observe it.
This done, some discussions took place between the Procurators of the said Cortes, and then all being of the same mind they presented unanimously a petition to the said Lord, King Ferdinand, the substance of which was, that after having been particularly informed of the infirmity of the said Queen Juana, our Lady, they considered that by right as well as according to the laws of these kingdoms the lawful guardianship and administration of these kingdoms and dominions is due and belong to the said Lord, King Ferdinand, alone, as being the father of her Highness, and as according to the contents of the above-mentioned clause of the will. For, in consequence of the impossibility which follows from the said impediment, all right of guardianship and government devolves on the said Lord, King Ferdinand, in accordance with the laws and statutes of these kingdoms, and which they [the Procurators] had sworn to observe. Praising and approving all that the said Lady Queen Isabel, in her will and letters patent, had ordained and decided with respect to the administration or government of these kingdoms, and conforming themselves to the customs and laws of these kingdoms, they all being of the same mind, having been privately informed, and it being notorious that the said infirmity renders it impossible for Queen Juana, our Lady to govern, name and accept and consider in the name of these kingdoms, and for the good and common weal of them, the said Lord, King Ferdinand, as lawful guardian, administrator, and governor of these kingdoms and dominions, in the name of the said Queen Juana, our Lady, according to and in the form and manner that the said Lady Queen Isabel ordered in her said will and letter, and they had sworn.
At the same time the said Lord, King Ferdinand, administrator and governor of these kingdoms and dominions, formally swore at the instance of the Procurators of the Cortes not to alienate the property of the Royal Crown of these kingdoms, according to and in the form which the said Lady Queen Isabel, our Lady, ordered in her will. He swore likewise to preserve intact all the privileges, customs, and usages of all the cities, towns, and other places in these kingdoms and dominions, according to and as they have hitherto been observed. All this is contained more at large in the instruments which were drawn up on these subjects. Miguel Perez de Almazon.
