The Portuguese Dynastic Crisis of 1383 - 1385 led to the enthronement of the House of Avis, represented by its founder, King John I of Portugal. Due to its illegitimate origin, the monarch and later his successors, used several resources of evocation of the royal power, objectifying to guarantee the legitimacy of his reign. The aim of this research is to understand how these mechanisms of representation of the political power reinforced by members of the House of Avis, and registered in "vestiges of written memory" (royal chronicles and other official registries) allied to the "vestiges of memory in stone" (monuments and architectural constructions) led to the symbolic construction of the Avis Dynasty in the 15th century. Within our chronological section (1383 - 1433), which covers the period of the final years of the reign of King Ferdinand I (1367 - 1383) to the reign of King John I (1385 - 1433), analyzing beyond the chronistic discourse, the centralizing policies adopted by the monarchy, the cult to the memory and the death of the dynasty's founding King and the members of his House, represented by the monumentalization of the Monastery of Batalha, points that were fundamental in the consolidation of this dynasty.
