"Humanist and historian. Chronicler of the Catholic Monarchs, famous because of his gloss on the "Coplas de Mingo Revulgo"."

He was born around 1435 and died around 1493. The place is not remembered although some maintain that it was Madrid or Toledo, others say Pulgar. He was educated in the court of John II of Castile and was present in this king's successor's court (Henry IV) The latter appointed him royal secretary, a position which he also occupied with the king's sister, Isabella the Catholic, and he also became State counsellor. Because he argued with Torquemada, defending Jewish converts who practised Judaism in secret, he was relegated to a mere chronicler of the Monarchs. His historiography works and his chronicles are apologetic, imitating the Latin writers. His most successful work, "Glosa a las coplas de Mingo Revulgo" (Burgos, 1485) was a satire of the reign of Henry IV, a work that was originally attributed to Íñigo de Mendoza.
