About Urraca de Portugal, reina consorte de León

Urraca de Portugal

De Wikipedia, la enciclopedia libre

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infanta_Urraca_de_Portugal

Urraca de Borgoña y Saboya (Coímbra, 1151 – ¿?, 16 de octubre de 1188) fue infanta portuguesa y reina consorte de León. Era hija de Alfonso I Enríquez, primer rey de Portugal, y de su esposa Mafalda de Saboya.

En 1165 se casó con Fernando II de León con quién tuvo a:

  1. Alfonso (1171–1230), sucesor de su padre con el nombre de Alfonso IX.

Esta unión no evitó que su padre Alfonso I declarara la guerra a su yerno. Esta corta guerra acabó cuando Alfonso fue capturado en Badajoz. Quizás debido a su matrimonio con Urraca, Fernando dejó que Alfonso se fuera. Sin embargo, la unión de Fernando II y Urraca fue disuelta en 1175 por el Papa, usando el hecho de que Urraca era su prima lejana como justificación.

Después de la disolución de esta unión, Urraca volvió a la corte de su padre. Allí murió, cuando tenía 37 años, nueve meses después murió su marido.

Urraca de Portugal, Rainha de Leão

http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urraca_de_Portugal,_rainha_de_Le%C3%A3o

Urraca Afonso, infanta de Portugal (Coimbra, 1151 - 16 de Outubro de 1188), infanta portuguesa filha de Afonso I de Portugal e de Mafalda, condessa de Sabóia, sendo irmã do rei Sancho I de Portugal.

Afonso I, rei de Portugal casou a sua filha, Urraca com Fernando II de Leão, seu primo afastado ( pois Fernando era neto de Urraca de Leão e Castela, tia de Afonso Henriques), em 1166, tendo ela apenas 15 anos e ele já 28, mas devido aos laços de parentesco o casamento acabou por ser dissolvido pelo Papa em 1175.

Deste casamento nasceu o futuro Afonso IX de Leão (1171), último rei de Leão independente, e ainda os infantes Fernando, Sancha e Dulce.

Depois da anulação do seu casamento, Urraca partiu para a corte do pai, em Portugal e veio a falecer em Coimbra em 1188, com apenas 37 anos de idade.

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

Urraca of Portugal (b. Coimbra, 1151– d. 16 October 1188; pron. IPA: [u'?ak?]), was a Portuguese infanta, daughter of Afonso I, 1st King of Portugal and his wife Maud of Savoy. She married Ferdinand II of León (c. 1165) with whom she had Alfonso IX of León. This marriage didn't prevent her father King Afonso I of Portugal from declaring war on his son-in-law. This short war culminated in disaster when Afonso was captured in Badajoz. Perhaps due to his marriage to Urraca, Ferdinand was generous to King Afonso of Portugal, and let him leave. However, the marriage of Ferdinand II and Urraca was dissolved in 1175 by the Pope, using the fact that Urraca was his distant cousin as justification.

After the dissolution of her marriage, Urraca returned to the court of her father and died there, aged only 37, nine months after the death of her former husband.

 Queen Regnant  Urraca I Alfonsez of Castilla and Léon  (Spain)

In 1107 she reigned over her Dowry Galicia and Zamora after the death of her first husband Count Raimond de Bourgogne. The following year she inherited the throne from her father Alfonso VI Fernandez of Castile and Leon (1040-1109). Her second marriage in the year 1109 to Alfonso I Perez de Aragon (d. 1134) ended in divorce in 1114. Her reign was disturbed by strife among the powerful nobles and especially by constant warfare with her husband, who had seized her lands. She never remarried, though she took several lovers. Another thorn in her side was her half-sister, Tarasa of Portugal and her husband, Enrique, who allied with her estranged husband, then betrayed him when a better offer came from Urraca's court. After her brother-in-law's death in 1112, her sister still contested ownership of lands. With the aid of her son, Alfonso Raimúndez, Urraca was able to win back much of her domain and ruled successfully until her death. According to the Chronicon Compostellanum, she died in childbirth in 1126. The father was her lover, Count Pedro González of Lara. She was succeeded by her legitimate son, Alfonso VII Raymundez of Castile and Leon "Imperator totus Hispaniae" (d. 1157), She lived (1082-1128/29).

Hija de Alfonso I Enríquez, primer rey de Portugal, y de su esposa, la reina Mafalda de Saboya, fue hermana, entre otros, del rey Sancho I de Portugal.

Emblema de la Orden de San Juan de Jerusalén, en la que ingresó como freira la reina Urraca de Portugal.

Contrajo matrimonio en mayo o junio del año 1165 con el rey Fernando II de León, hijo de Alfonso VII el Emperador, rey de Castilla y León, y de su esposa, la reina Berenguela de Barcelona, siendo la reina Urraca de Portugal la primera infanta del reino de Portugal en desposarse con un miembro de la realeza leonesa, y el día 15 de agosto de 1171, en la ciudad de Zamora, nació el único hijo del matrimonio, el infante Alfonso, siendo bautizado en la catedral de Zamora, y que sucedió a su padre en el trono de León cuando éste falleció.

Debido al parentesco que existía entre los reyes de León, pues ambos eran primos segundos, el rey de León se vio obligado a repudiar a su esposa, ya que el matrimonio de ambos fue anulado por el Papa Alejandro III, en el año 1171 ó 1172.

Tras haberse declarado nulo su matrimonio, la reina Urraca de Portugal ingresó como freira en la Orden de San Juan de Jerusalén, y se retiró a vivir en los municipios zamoranos que su esposo el rey le concedió al desposarse con ella, y, posteriormente, se retiró al monasterio de Santa María de Wamba, situado en la actual provincia de Valladolid, y que pertenecía a la Orden de San Juan de Jerusalén.

En 1188 asistió a la coronación de su hijo Alfonso IX de León, que heredó el trono leonés tras la defunción de su padre, ocurrida el día 22 de enero de 1188, y ese mismo año, el día 4 de mayo, la reina Urraca y su hijo Alfonso IX confirmaron los privilegios concedidos por Fernando II de León a la Orden de Santiago.

Se desconoce su fecha exacta de defunción, aunque las crónicas de la época coinciden en que falleció en el año 1188, y algunos historiadores señalan que falleció el día 16 de octubre.

Fruto de su matrimonio con el rey Fernando II de León, hijo de Alfonso VII el Emperador, rey de Castilla y León, nació un hijo:

   * Alfonso IX de León (1171-1230). Sucedió a su padre en el trono de León. Se desposó por primera vez con la infante Teresa de Portugal y Barcelona, hija del rey Sancho I de Portugal y de la reina Dulce de Aragón, pero el matrimonio fue anulado debido al grado de parentesco existente entre los cónyuges.
