In this work we can find three privileges granted by Fernando III to the city of Ubeda, in the province of Jaen, after its conquest All of them are written in Latin, and, the original privileges are in the he Municipal Archive of that city. We publish here the Latin text and the Spanish translation. In the first document, dated in Valladolid the 14th February 1235, the city of Ubeda is ceded and especially to sixty gentlemen of the council, a place called Olvera with all its possessions, on the banks of the river Guadalimar —now a small hamlet about 20i km. from Ubeda—. This was done in order that those gentlemen would build a castle here, and repopulate the area ; in this way, they could the continuous attacks from the Moors who held a great part of High Andalucia, and had become very strong in the realm of Granada. The second document is like a supplement to the first one and it has the same political and socio-economic character. Dated in Burgos the 20th August 1235, it establishes the close relationship in limits, pasture and tilling, among the councils of Ubeda., Santisteban del Puerto and Iznatoraf (all these cities are in the province of Jaen). The third privilege is of a juridical type, because its aim is just to fix and confirm the boundary stones in the limit between the councils of Ubeda and Baeza. This document is dated in Cordoba, the 7th June 1236 and here, King Fernando III confirms the official limits of the lands which belonged to each one of those councils ; it had been done before by the royal limits.
