Description: This article analyzes the judicial process initiated in 1465 by Aharón Farh against Aharón Çarfatí and his son Shelomó, both Jews from Zaragoza. They were accused of not complying with the will granted by Ya‘aqob Çarfatí in 1451 in which, except for some legacy in favour of his nephew, established his widow, Nadefa Farh, as the universal heir, who was also sister of the plaintiff. Aharón Çarfatí, who ignored an arbitral judgment/sentence given in 1454, which declared a donation as null made in favour of his son, thus infringing the will, which forces legitimate heirs a judicial complaint with the berurim of the aljama, used in trial on first appeal in the Royal Court. All these actions confirm the validity of the axiom dina’ demalkhuta’ dina’; while the plaintiff, ratione personae, i.e. using subjective elements (both plaintiffs are Jewish), required further rabbinical jurisdiction, the defendant, ratione materiae, wanted the Aragonese Laws to apply, known as the Fueros of Aragon, citing objective elements (civil law of the Kingdom).
