Ambrosio de Morales (b. Cordoba, Spain, 1513; died September 1591) was a historian. After his studies at the University of Salamanca and Alcala, he took Holy orders. Soon he was elected to the chair of Belles-Lettres at Alcala. In 1574 he was appointed chronicler of Castile and commissioned to continue Florian de Ocampo's Cronica General de Espana. This he brought down, after ten years of labour on it, to the date of the union of Castile and Leon under Ferdinand I. His pupil Sandoval continued it down to 1079.
