In february 1119 Alfonso I, king of Arangon and Pamplona, conquered de Moorish town of Tudela. Paradoxically, owing to this success the king had to face a serious problem: how to retain there most native inhabitants, Moors and Jews, in order to prevent the depopulation of the town. It was necessary to regulate the relations with the submitted people. With regard to Muslims, a pact was the way to accomplish this policy. So, local authorities surrendered the town to the monarch and in exchange they obtained especial conditions. It seems that the Navarrese and Aragonese lords who knew best the territory and had colaborated on the campaign with the king took part as counselors in negotiating the agreement. Its contents were not exhaustive. Its clauses did not regulate all the activities of the submitted people. These clauses offered only basic guarantees for social and economic life to follow in Tudela a without problems. Alfonso I promised the Moors that their lives and goods would be respected, that they could maintain their traditional authorities and conceded them important exemptions of taxes and services. In addition, the king tried to foresee the litigations that could arise between Moors and Christians in the future
