The ample bibliography on the composer Pedro Rimonte, from Zaragoza, does not correspond to extensive knowledge of his biography. Almost fifty years after the classic articles that placed the composer in the place that historically corresponded to him, an update of the state of his life and work was necessary. The goals of this study are to clarify the information that has been proven or is based on possible hypotheses not refuted nowadays from the existing bibliography, show some new aspects of the author’s life and works and present new research perspectives. Bibliographic research, data analysis, the incorporation of new information and a general contextualization of the life of the Aragonese composer have been carried out. The article shows the social panorama that surrounded his birth in the city of Zaragoza, his presence in extraordinary royal events as well as his good relationship with Archdukes Alberto and Isabel. His participation in courtly plays (entremeses) and satires whose objectives went beyond mere entertainment, his impatience to return to Spain and some circumstances for which his compositions could be composed or performed have also been documented.
