Roma in Catalonia
On 9 June 1447, Maria de Castella, acting as Lieutenant-General (de facto ruler) for her husband Alfonso V, granted a safe conduct pass for Catalonia to a large caravan of Roma under the command of the duke Andrés and the counts Tomás, Pedro and Martín, of Little Egypt. On that same day they arrived to Barcelona and the following was recorded in the Manual de novells ardits vulgarment anomenat Dietari del antich consell barceloní:
Today a duke and a count arrived with a number of Egyptians or bohemians; sad, uncouth people who go about telling fortunes. 
the distinguished Count Jaime, a true Christian and Catholic from Little Egypt, is travelling with a number of men , women and many children on a glorious pilgrimage to San Jaime of Galicia and other sanctuaries.
