Meaning of mándiga

Felipe Lorenzo del Río


Old Castilian word that older people still use in my asturleonesa land with the meaning of dote for the marriage provided by the bride or her family or inheritance. The term appears in the Romance of Prince D's death. John, son of the Catholic Monarchs, at the end of the fifteenth century : . Seven doctors assist you, / the best in Spain;/ some look at his pulse, others look at his face, / and others look at his blood/that comes out so spilled.
