House of Silva: The Silva Family

The House of Silva [English pron.: /ˈSill-vah'/] is an aristocratic family of Spanish and Portuguese origin.

Juan de Mena's work of the first half of the 15th century was giving families their ancestral monarchy and royal power to link them to the glorious past. Juan de Mena indicated that the Silva were "very noble Royals and noblemen of high rank" with some writings claiming for them descent from the mythical Latin kings of Alba Longa (and hence from Aeneas of Troy). He adds the claim that a member of the family fought with Pelagius of Asturias.[1] Luis de Salazar y Castro repeated these and other similar traditions of ancient Italian origin in his Historia genealógica de la Casa de Silva, published in 1685, as well as other equally unfounded derivation from the royal house of Silva and Asturias.

A branch of the family became established in the Castile after Arias Gomes de Silva, was named Prince of Córdoba. His son Alfonso Tenorio Silva intermarried with the city gentry to establish his family as one of the most powerful in the city as well as serving in the courts of successive Trastámara monarchs.[4] His son Juan Silva was made count of Cifuentes, while younger branches of the Silva family were lords of Montemayor and Corral.
