Alfonso XI of Castile

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Alfonso XI)

A Status of Alfonso XI is in Algeciras

Alfonso XI (Salamanca, August 13, 1311 – March 26/27, 1350 in Gibraltar) was the king of Castile and León, the son of Ferdinand IV of Castile and his wife Constance of Portugal.

He is variously known among Castilian kings as the Avenger or the Implacable, and as "He of Salado River." The first two names he earned by the ferocity with which he repressed the disorder of the nobles after a long minority; the third by his victory in the Battle of Rio Salado over the last formidable Marinid invasion of Spain in 1340.

Alfonso XI never went to the insane lengths of his son Pedro of Castile, but he could be bloody in his methods. He killed for reasons of state without form of trial. He openly neglected his wife, Maria of Portugal, and had an ostentatious passion for Eleanor of Guzman, who bore him ten children. This set Peter an example which he failed to better. It may be that his early death, during the Great Plague of 1350, at the Siege of Gibraltar, only averted a desperate struggle with Peter, though it was a misfortune in that it removed a ruler of eminent capacity, who understood his subjects well enough not to go too far.

Marriage and children

Alfonso XI first married Costanza Manuel of Castile on 1325, but divorced her two years later. His second marriage, on 1328, was to Maria of Portugal, daughter of Alfonso IV of Portugal. She was the mother of his sons Fernando (Valladolid, 1332 – 1333) and Pedro of Castile.

By his mistress, Eleanor of Guzman, he had ten children:

   * Pedro, 1st Lord of Aguilar de Campoo (1330 - 1338)
   * Juana, 1st Lady of follar Trastamara (born 1330)
   * Sancho, 1st Lord of Ledesma (1331 - 1343)
   * Henry of Trastamara (1334 - 1379)
   * Fadrique, Master of the Order of Santiago and 1st Lord of Haro; (born 1335)
   * Fernando, 2nd Lord of Ledesma
   * Tello, 1st Lord of Aguilar de Campoo (1337-1370)
   * Juan, 1st Lord of Badajoz and Jerez de la Frontera (1341 - 1359)
   * Sancho of Alburquerque (1342-1375)
   * Pedro (1345 - 1359)

After Alfonso's death, his widow Maria had Eleanor arrested and later killed (1).

Alfonso XI de Borgoña, el Justiciero (Salamanca, 13 de agosto de 1311 – Gibraltar, 26 de marzo de 1350), fue rey de Castilla y de León, biznieto de Alfonso X el Sabio. Muerto su padre, Fernando IV, en 1312, se desarrollaron multitud de disputas entre varios aspirantes al trono, resueltos en 1313 con el acuerdo de Palazuelos. Su abuela Doña María de Molina, Doña Constanza y los infantes don Juan y don Pedro, formaron regencia. Cuando murió Doña Constanza y tras una campaña militar donde perecieron los infantes en Granada en el año 1319, Doña María quedó como única regente. Al morir en 1321 los infantes don Felipe, don Juan Manuel y don Juan el Tuerto se dividieron el reino mientras era saqueado por los moros y nobles levantinos. Alfonso, una vez mayor de edad, asumió el trono, consiguiendo durante su reinado el fortalecimiento del poder real, la resolución de los problemas del estrecho de Gibraltar y la conquista de Algeciras.
