Nations also have symbolic dates. In the case of Portugal, one of these dates is 1 July 1419. On that day, a work began to be written which, for that reason, would become known as the “Chronicle of Portugal of 1419”, or simply the “1419 Chronicle”. It was the rst time that a chronicle was written speci cally for Portugal. Before that, the history of the kingdom was conceived as part of the history of the Iberian Peninsula (or of Spain, as the whole of the Peninsula was called at the time), or was dedicated solely to the deeds of a given king, monastery or lineage.
