History:

The "Hijosdalgo" Court of the Royal Chancellery was the supreme judicial court of the Kingdom of Castilla in terms of lawsuits about the recognition of the lowest states of nobility, their exemptions and privileges.

This court was created inside the Royal Chancellery by the King Enrique II of Castilla in 1371, and when the Queen Isabel I divided the Chancellery in 1494 into two different institutions using the Tagus River as a jurisdictional border, the jurisdiction north or the river remained settled in Valladolid, while the other one was located first in Ciudad Real and later in the city of Granada.

It remained active until the suppression of the Royal Chancellery of Valladolid and the privilege-based society between 1834 and 1836.
