    En este trabajo se analiza la institución del Racional de Valencia en la última década de este oficio, coincidiendo con el momento en que la normativa municipal le confirmaba las importantes competencias tradicionalmente ostentadas desde la creación del cargo en el siglo XIV; bien como componente de la comisión que dirigía la política local, o bien a título particular, disponiendo de amplias facultades en ambos casos para intervenir y auditar las cuentas de la ciudad y de su Banco, así como participar en el proceso de absolución de los responsables de dichas cuentas, auxiliado por un equipo de expertos contables y legales. (This paper analyses the institution of the Rational of Valencia in the last decade of its life. The beginning of this decade just coincided with the issuing of a regulation that confirmed the important responsibilities conferred to the Rational since the creation of the position in the 14th century. This responsibilities embraced his commitments as a member of the commission that ruled Kingdom of Valencia’s policy, as well as the wide powers that he had in the performance of his position, the main of which were to control and audit the accounts of the city and of its bank, the Taula de Canvis, taking part in the process of settelment these accounts. He was helped in his duties by a team of accountants and legal experts).
