In a conversation before the battle, Nun'Alvares treats the Portuguese King by the title "His Majesty", title given to Portuguese Kings for the first time 150 years later, with King Manuel. In 1385, Portuguese and Spanish Kings were treated as "Your/His Mercy". See more »
This composition was made to be presented to visitors of the "Centro de Interpretação da Batalha de Aljubarrota" (Center for Interpretation of the Battle of Aljubarrota). It is part of a multimedia presentation. The CIBA sits on the place of the famous battle of Portugal (and England) against Castile (and France), which was part of the Hundred Year War and also a battle between supporters of different Popes (as well as a battle for the succession to the throne of Portugal). Nice quality, unimpressive CGI, median representations, but it was good for a multimedia presentation. Although the Battle, who marks the beginning of the Second Dinasty (that created The Portuguese Century, when Portugal became the most powerful nation in the world, discovering everything from Brazil to Japan) and also the beginning of the modern world, deserves a major production movie by a great studio. (Peter Jackson, are you listening?)
