Aur Aur !! Wake up Ferro !! his battle cry. The Almogávares were mercenary soldiers, rude, reckless, defiant and fierce, the best infantry of the time they say, coming from the Pyrenean mountains that declared war on the most powerful Empire of the time, the Byzantine Empire. And the fact is that the emperor, despite the valuable aid received to bring the Turks under control, did not hesitate to betray these brave Catalans and Aragonese, assassinating their leader Roger de Flor. Revenge was immediate and this company of wounded guerrillas razed, burned and burned various cities, and seized the duchies of Athens and Neopatria (1337). His terrible vendetta - we do not want to imagine the fate of those who came across the action and anger of this strike force, so experienced since the time of the reconquest and already so showering in the handling of its fearful colltell, that mixture of brutal dagger and enormous butcher knife - has been left to posterity as "Catalan revenge."
Pelayo, King of the Mountains - Black T-Shirt
He told them through an angel to look for Pelayo,
that they named him king and that they abide by him,
and in defending the land that everyone helps him,
for He would help her to protect them.
They looked for Pelayo, as he was commanded,
they found him in a cave hungry and damaged,
they kissed his hands and gave him kingship:
he had to accept it, but not willingly.
He received the kingship, but against his wish,
the protected peoples were believed with him;
the unbelieving peoples heard the news,
to come against them all were moved.
Where he was they came to look for him,
first the rock began to attack;
there Christ wanted a great miracle to show,
I think you ever heard him tell.
Arrows and arrows that they shot at the king,
neither to him nor to his people no one came,
as angry as they went, they also became,
if it wasn't themselves, they didn't kill others.
When the Moors saw such an incredible feat,
that their weapons killed their own soldiers,
they remove the fence from the cave, they leave the mountain:
they thought that God had great fury against them.
This King Pelayo, servant of the Creator,
he protected the land so well that he couldn't do better;
the Christians were thus losing their pain
although they never lost their fear of Almanzor.
