Abstract: Tirant lo Blanch is a novel with multiple sides. In particular, the Mediterranean Sea becomes especially important. We pay attention to two episodes which can become examples of the strategic relevance that corresponds to the Mediterranean Sea in Tirant lo Blanch as a ‘romance’ tale as well as a work written after the classic historiography: the History of the love between Leander and Hero, by Joan Roís de Corella; and we identify for the first time a ‘new’ source for Tirant lo Blanch after the important Roman historian Dion Cassius. The present study additionally suggests a (most) probable evidence of the influential activity carried out by the Grand Master of the Hospital, Juan Fernández de Heredia.
