About Sancha Alfónsez, Infanta de Castilla y León

Elvira de Castilla (1082- ), daughter of Alfonso VI and Constance, died young.

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

Elvira de Castilla, Reina de Sicilia (1100 – 1135), casada con Roger II, rey de Sicilia, hija de Alfonso VI y Zaida (bautizada Isabel, viuda del gobernador de Córdoba, Al-Mamun).

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

Elvira of Castile, Queen of Sicily

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 (Redirected from Elvira of Castile (Sicilian queen))

Elvira of Castile (c. 1100 – 8 February 1135) was a daughter of Alfonso VI of Castile by his fourth queen, Isabel (perhaps identical to the Moslem convert Zaida, baptized as Isabel, who had been Alfonso's mistress).

Elvira married Roger II of Sicily in 1117, but only infrequently saw him thereafter, for he was much preoccupied with rebellions on the Italian Peninsula and she stayed with her children in Palermo the capital. Despite this, the marriage was undoubtedly happy, for she bore Roger five sons before she died in 1135. Her death put Roger in such a deep depression that he was thought dead, he was so reclusive.

Their sons were:

Roger (died 12 May 1148), heir, Duke of Apulia (from 1135), possibly also Count of Lecce.

Tancred (died 1138), Prince of Bari (from 1135).

Alfonso (died 1144), Prince of Capua (from 1135) and Duke of Naples.

William (died 7 May 1166), his successor, Duke of Apulia (from 1148).

Henry, died in infancy. -------------------- Apparently a descendent from Muhammad through her mother

Infanta doña SANCHA de Castilla, daughter of don ALFONSO VI King of Castile and León & his fifth wife Isabel née Zaïda --- ([1120/16 Mar 1104]-after 10 May 1125). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Sancha the wife of count Rodrigo and Elvira who married Duke Roger of Sicily" as the daughters of King Alfonso and his fourth "legitimate wife…Elisabeth"[995]. Both daughters are named in a charter dated 16 Mar 1104[996]. In view of the dates of their marriages, it is unlikely that they were born much before this date. This suggests that their mother may have been King Alfonso's fifth wife, formerly known by her Muslim name Zaïda, although if their estimated birth dates are correct there would have been an interval of several years between their births and the birth of their older brother Sancho, which seems surprising. m secondly (9 Sep 1135) as her second husband, doña ESTEFANIA de Urgel, widow of don FERNANDO García [de Castro] Señor de Hita y Uceda, daughter of ARMENGOL [V] Conde de Urgel & his wife doña María Pérez Señora de Valladolid (-after 1143). Rodrigo & his first wife had three children:

a) don PEDRO Rodríguez (-1180). Pedro Rodríguez “filius comitis Ruderici Gonsaluez” transferred properties to the bishop of Burgos by charter dated Mar 1166[997]. m doña MENCIA López, daughter of don LOPE Díaz Conde de Haro, Señor Soberano de Vizcaya & his second wife doña Aldonza Ruiz de Castro. “Sancia Lopez…comitissa domna Mencia…Urraca Lopez…Aldonza Lopez…Elvira Lopez…Don Garcia Lopez…Stephania Lopez monacha…Tota Lopez…Maria Lopez…Diago Lopez” donated property to the monastery of Santa María de Cañas by charter dated Sep 1174[998]. "Domna Alduenza cometissa…olim…domni Lupi comitis uxor" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated 1187, witnessed by "domnus Didacus Lupiz, domna Mencia cometissa, domna Alduenza, domna Tota Camensis abbatissa, domnus Sancius Lupiz…"[999].

b) doña ELVIRA Rodríguez de Lara (-8 Aug 1159). m (before 1135) as his second wife, ARMENGOL [VI] "el Castellano" Conde de Urgel, son of ARMENGOL [V] Conde de Urgel & his wife doña María Pérez Señora de Valladolid (Valladolid 1096-28 Jun 1154, bur Nuestra Señora de Valbuena).

c) daughter. According to Reilly, two daughters had been born of Rodrigo's first marriage by 10 May 1125[1000]. However, Farmerie and Taylor say that don Pedro and doña Elvira were the only children of don Rodrigo González de Lara[1001]. Don Rodrigo González joined with "his daughters" by his first marriage in 1125 in a donation to the monastery of Vega[1002]. -------------------- Rodrigo I Fruelez, conde de Castilla1
