About Blanca de Navarra, reina consorte de Castilla

La infanta Blanca Garcés, también conocida como Blanca de Navarra (d. 1133 en Laguardia - † ¿12 de agosto? de 1156) hija de García Ramírez de Navarra y Margarita de Águila.

Su padre encontrándose en aprietos debido al acoso de sus tierras por parte del ejército de Alfonso VII y tras no haber sido reconocido por la autoridad pontificia como rey, tuvo que firmar en 1140 las paces con Alfonso VII, pero siguió la guerra con Ramón Berenguer IV hasta que en 1149 firmo también las paces con él, tras prometer darle a su hija Blanca en matrimonio, estando ésta ya prometida con Sancho III "El Deseado", primogénito del rey Alfonso VII y futuro rey de Castilla. Este paso diplomático no fue prudente y finalmente Blanca casó con Sancho III el 30 de enero de 1151 en Calahorra.

Fruto de este matrimonio tendrían como hijo a Alfonso VIII de Castilla futuro rey de Castilla.

Sepulcro

Fue enterrada en el Monasterio de Santa María la Real de Nájera.

Su sepulcro es una joya del románico europeo

En la cara principal está esculpida la muerte de Blanca, mientras su alma representada por un niño desnudo, es elevada al Cielo por dos ángeles. A los lados, tras unos árboles, el rey es consolado por cortesanos.

--------------------

Blanca of Navarre (aft. 1133, Pamplona – August 12, 1156). She was the daughter of king García VI of Navarre, "The Restorer", and Marguerite de l'Aigle.

Blanca married Sancho III of Castile, co-king of Castile (with his father) on January 30, 1151 in Catahorra, Logroño; however, she died before her husband's accession as sole ruler in 1157. She had several children who did not survive and are buried in the church of San Pedro in Soria. On November 11, 1155 she gave birth to the future king Alfonso VIII. There appears to be no record of her activities thereafter, except for her death on August 12, 1156. While it had been suggested that she might have died from the complications of a new pregnancy, Valdez maintains that she died from sequelae of the birth of her son. That her death was caused by a pregnancy is recorded in an epitaph.

Sancho donated money to the monastery of Santa María la Real in Najera where she is buried. The sarcophagus of the queen is regarded as a primary example of the ability to express artistically human emotions in the 12th century.
