One of the reasons why Toledo after 1085 was different was that whereas elsewhere along the frontier the various ethnic groups in each place were governed by a single fuero with separate hierarchies administering rules of law which at least in theory were common to all, in Toledo each group (including the clergy) possessed a fuero of its own. This arrangement continued until the promulgation of a single code for all citizens — 'omnes cives Toletanos, scilicet Castellanos, Mozarabes atque Francos, propter fidelitate atque equalitate illorum': the Fuero refundido. The Fuero refundido was essentially the fuero of the Mozarabs, the fuero based on the Visigothic ‘forum judicum’ by which the Mozarabs had been ruled during the period of Muslim domination and which Alfonso VI confirmed in 1101.

Keywords:   Toledo, rule of law, fuero, Mozarabs, Muslim domination, Alfonso VI
