About Leonor af Portugal, Dronning af Danmark

Leonor de Portugal, Rainha da Dinamarca

Origem: Wikipédia, a enciclopédia livre.


Leonor Afonso de Portugal (1211 - 13 de Maio de 1231) foi uma princesa portuguesa, a única filha de Afonso II de Portugal, e rainha da Dinamarca.

Pelo seu casamento, em 1229, com Valdemar da Dinamarca, filho mais velho de Valdemar II e seu co-regente, tornou-se também rainha consorte daquele reino, do qual já antes havia sido monarca a princesa Berengária de Portugal, sua tia.

Morreu de parto em 1231, mas o seu rebento também não sobreviveu, pelo que, ao falecer o seu marido pouco depois, nesse mesmo ano, a coroa passou para os irmãos que o defunto monarca havia do segundo casamento do seu pai, precisamente com a tia da rainha, Berengária: Eric, Abel e Cristóvão I da Dinamarca.

Birth: 1211, Portugal Death: Aug. 28, 1231, Denmark

Eleanor of Portugal was a Portuguese infanta (princess), the only daughter of King Afonso II of Portugal and his wife Urraca of Castile. She was Queen consort of Denmark by marriage to Danish King Valdemar the Young, son of Valdemar II, in 1229. The wedding took place in Ribe in 24 June 1229, and the next day Eleanor received southern half of the island Funen as a wedding present from her husband. Even though she was junior Queen, she was the only queen since her aunt had died eight years prior and her father-in-law had not remarried. Only two years later Eleanor died in childbirth on the 28 August 1231, and three months later her husband was killed by an accidental shot. When examining Eleanor's grave in Ringsted Church, it was discovered that her skeleton showed traces of cancer of the bones, which probably was contributory to her death. At the foot piece of Eleanor's grave was a leaden coffin, which contained the bones of a child about 6 months old, already sickly and scrofulous from birth. So Eleanor probably gave-birth to a child, who survived her by only six months
