About Filipa de Lencastre, rainha consorte de Portugal

Philippa of Lancaster (Portuguese: Filipa [f%C9%A8%CB%88lip%C9%90]; 31 March 1360 – 19 July 1415) was Queen of Portugal from 1387 until 1415 by marriage to King John I. Born into the royal family of England, her marriage secured the Treaty of Windsor and produced several children who became known as the "Illustrious Generation" in Portugal.

Born on 31 March 1360, Philippa was the oldest child of John of Gaunt, 1st Duke of Lancaster and Blanche of Lancaster.


Philippa was apparently a generous and loving queen, the mother of the "Illustrious Generation" (in Portuguese, Ínclita Geração) of infantes (princes) and infantas (princesses). Her children were:[12]

  • Blanche (13 July 1388 – 6 March 1389), died in infancy.
  • Alphonse (30 July 1390 – 22 December 1400), heir of the throne, died in childhood at the age of 10, in Braga, and was buried in Braga Cathedral.
  • Edward (Duarte) (31 October 1391 – 13 September 1438), a writer and an intellectual who succeeded his father as King of Portugal in 1433.
  • Peter (9 December 1392 – 20 May 1449), Duke of Coimbra, a well-travelled man who served as Regent during the minority of his nephew Afonso V.
  • Henry (4 March 1394 – 13 November 1460), called "the Navigator", first Duke of Viseu, who guided Portugal to the Age of Discovery.
  • Isabella (21 February 1397 – 11 December 1471), married Philip III of Burgundy.
  • Blanche (11 April 1398 – 27 July 1398), died in infancy.
  • John (13 January 1400 – 18 October 1442), Constable of Portugal, Lord of Reguengos, grandfather of two 16th century Iberian monarchs (Manuel I of Portugal and Isabella I of Castile).
  • Ferdinand (29 September 1402 – 5 June 1443), called "the Saint Prince", a warrior who was captured during the Disaster of Tangier in 1437 and died a prisoner of the Moors
