About Alphonso X (excerpt from Wikipedia):

Alfonso X and his sword are featured in the Monument to San Fernando

Alfonso X and his sword are featured in the Monument to San Fernando in Seville.

Alfonso X (also occasionally Alphonso X, Alphonse X, or Alfons X,[1] called the Wise (el Sabio), was the King of Castile, León and Galicia from 30 May 1252 until his death.

Alfonso X fostered the development of a cosmopolitan court that encouraged learning. Jews, Muslims, and Christians had prominent roles in his court. As a result of his encouraging the translation of works from Arabic and Latin into the vernacular of Castile, many intellectual changes took place, perhaps the most notable being encouragement of the use of Castilian as a primary language of higher learning, science, and law. Alfonso was a prolific author of Galician poetry, such as the Cantigas de Santa Maria, which are equally notable for their musical notation as for their literary merit. Alfonso’s scientific interests—he is sometimes nicknamed “the Astrologer” (el Astrólogo)—led him to sponsor the creation of the Alfonsine tables, and the Alphonsus crater on the moon is named after him.
