Constance de Castille (v. 1136 † 6 octobre 1160) est une infante de Castille et une reine de France par son mariage avec le roi Louis VII le jeune. Elle est fille d'Alphonse VII, roi de Castille et de León et de Bérengère de Barcelone.

Après s'être séparé d'Aliénor d'Aquitaine, Louis VII le jeune, roi de France, cherche une nouvelle épouse car il n'a pas de fils susceptible de lui succéder. Il finit par conclure une alliance avec le roi de Castille et de León. Constance, la fille de ce dernier, part pour le royaume de France et arrive à Orléans où elle épouse le roi entre janvier et juillet 1154. Elle est sacrée reine lors de la même cérémonie. Elle a environ dix- huit ans, des traits agréables, une culture étendue et une foi religieuse ferme.

De ce mariage sont nés :

  1. Marguerite (1158 † 1197), mariée en 1172 à Henri le Jeune (1155 † 1183), fils de Henri II Plantagenêt, puis en 1185 à Béla III (114 † 1196), roi de Hongrie.
  2. Adélaïde (1160 † après 1200), mariée le 20 août 1195 à Guillaume II Talvas (1178 † 1221), comte de Ponthieu, à qui elle apporte en dot les comtés d'Eu et d'Arques.

Constance de Castille est morte le 4 octobre 1160 en donnant naissance à Adélaïde. Elle est inhumée à Saint- Denis. Cinq semaines plus tard, Louis VII épouse Adèle de Champagne.

Constance of Castile (1141 – 4 October 1160) was the second wife of Louis VII, King of France, following his divorce from Eleanor of Aquitaine. She was a daughter of Alphonse VII, King of Galicia, León and Castile, and Berenguela of Barcelona. Her maternal grandparents were Ramon Berenguer III, Count of Barcelona and his third wife Douce I of Provence.

The official reason for her husband's divorce from Eleanor of Aquitaine had been that he was too close a relative of Eleanor for the marriage to be legal by Church standards; however, he was even more closely related to Constance.

Constance died giving birth to her second child. Desperate for a son, her husband remarried a mere five weeks after her death.

Constance was buried in the Basilica of Saint-Denis, France.
