Aphonsine Ordinances

The Afonsina Ordinances, published in 1446, during the reign of D. Afonso V, constituted a kind of collection or code of laws and other legal sources and that brought together all the legislation in force at the time. The fact that they constitute the first official compilation of the law of the country places the Aphonsine Ordinances in a prominent position in the history of Portuguese law. With the publication of the Afonsina Ordinances, the laws became uniform throughout the country, thus preventing the abuses practiced by the nobility regarding their interpretation, allowing the king to amplify his centralizing policy.
