      "James I the Conqueror (Catalan: Jaume el Conqueridor, Occitan: Jacme lo Conquistaire, Aragonese: Chaime lo Conqueridor, Spanish: Jaime el Conquistador; 2 February 1208 - 27 July 1276) was King of Aragon, Valencia and Majorca, Count of Barcelona and Lord of Montpellier from 1213 to 1276. His long reign saw the expansion of the House of Barcelona on all sides: into Valencia to the south, Languedoc to the north, and the Balearic Islands to the east. By a treaty with Louis IX of France, he wrested the county of Barcelona from nominal French suzerainty and integrated it into his crown. His part in the Reconquista was similar in Mediterranean Spain to that of his contemporary Ferdinand III of Castile in Andalusia."
