Carolina Michaëlis de Vasconcelos is one of the most recognized Romanists of the second half of the 19th century and the first quarter of the 20th century. Specialized in the history, culture, and literature of the Iberian Peninsula of the Middle Ages and early modernity, and author of numerous important studies on Portuguese literature, she also paid special attention to the Hispanic balladry. It was a constant subject of research throughout her career, from the edition of the Romancero del Cid in 1875, which was one of her first academic publications, to the pinnacle of her work in this field represented by the Estudos sobre o Romanceiro Peninsular. Romances Velhos em Portugal from 1907-1909. The objective of this paper is to provide a comprehensive overview of Carolina Michaëlis de Vasconcelos' publications on Hispanic balladry, including both those dedicated monographically to this subject and those that address it more tangentially. This survey will allow us to observe what were her main points of interest, what contributions she made to the field, and how her ideas evolved throughout the time. In addition, for the most significant works, it will be detailed the critical reception at the time and the weight they still have today in this field of study.
