We have included a new document in the Johnny Veeder Archive of Historic Arbitration Awards and ADR Materials: the official protocol of the Compromiso de Caspeof June 25, 1412. The document relates to a succession dispute concerning the vacant throne of the crown of Aragon after the death of King Martin I the Humane (El Humano) and constitutes a major step in the future uniting of Spain. We are very grateful to Professor Juan Armesto, Madrid for making us aware of the document and to Professor José Ángel Sesma Munoz, Zaragoza, for allowing us to reproduce the Latin transcription and Spanish translation of the document.
