About Agnès de Poitiers, reine consort d'Aragon

Inés de Poitou (esposa de Ramiro II de Aragón)

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/In%C3%A9s_de_Poitou_(esposa_de_Ramiro_II_de_Arag%C3%B3n)

Inés de Poitou (en Francia Agnès de Poitiers o Agnès de Poitou, también conocida como Inés de Aquitania), fue una princesa de la familia de los ramnúlfidas, hija de Guillermo IX de Poitiers, llamado el Trovador, duque de Aquitania y conde de Poitiers, y de Felipa de Toulouse. Se desposó en primeras nupcias el 11 de abril de 1106 con Aimerico V de Thouars, del que tuvo cuatro hijos, entre ellos, Guillermo I de Thouars.

Hacía ocho años que era viuda cuando, en segundas nupcias, se desposó con el rey de Aragón Ramiro II el Monje el 13 de noviembre de 1135 en la catedral de Jaca. La principal razón de que éste le pidiera su mano fue el propio hecho de que ella hubiera tenido ya hijos. Además, la familia de Inés estaba muy ligada a la casa real aragonesa pues una tía suya, también llamada Inés, casada con Pedro I, el hermano mayor de Ramiro, había sido ya reina de Aragón antes que ella.

Ramiro II se casó con Inés de Poitou probablemente el día 13 de noviembre de 1135 en la catedral de Jaca y de ese matrimonio nació una hija, Petronila de Aragón, el 29 de junio de 1136, futura reina de Aragón.

Es muy probable que ese mismo año Inés de Poitou, una vez que había dado una heredera al Reino, volviera a cruzar los Pirineos; de hecho, su nombre no vuelve a aparecer en la documentación aragonesa de la época. Esto nos lleva a pensar que en realidad la única razón del matrimonio fue la necesidad de la casa real aragonesa de asegurarse un heredero.

De nuevo en Aquitania, Inés de Poitou se retiró a la abadía de Fontevraud, donde también había vivido su madre, y allí murió hacia el año 1159.

[edit] First marriage

Agnes was first married to Aimery V of Thouars, the marriage produced four children, including William I of Thouars. Aimery died within a few years and Agnes remained a widow for eight years.

[edit] Second marriage

Agnes was secondly married to Ramiro II of Aragon, the couple probably on November 13 of 1135 in the cathedral of Jaca. The exact reason for the marriage was that Agnes had already bore children, if she could have four surviving children, then she probally would be able to give Ramiro a surviving heir. The couple did have children, they had one daughter, Petronila of Aragon, who later succeded her father as King of Aragon. Ramiro died in 1157.

Petronila was betrothed to Ramon Berenguer IV at the age of two. The marriage contract, signed at Barbastro on 11 August 1137, made Petronila the heiress to the crown of Aragon, which in event of her childless death would pass to Ramon Berenguer and any children he might have by another wife

It is very likely, that she went back to Aquitaine, after the birth of her daughter, since the only reason for the marriage was to give birth to an heir and Aragon didn't have trouble with female monarchs. This can be proved because her name doesn't appear on any Aragonese documents, during the period.

Agnes retired to the Abbey of Fontevraud, where her mother had lived and died there around 1159.
