The architectural patronage of Fernando III is here re-examined. I compare it with that his contemporaries, and closely scrutinize the documentary evidence for specific references to royal support for construction. I consider Fernando’s relationship to Burgos cathedral, propose a new reading for its cloister sculpture, and suggest that Fernando’s architectural patronage was much more limited than traditionally believed.
