Biografía

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonora_of_England

&nbsp

Princess Eleanor Plantagenet of England and Aquitaine (later Leonora; 13 October 1162 – 31 October 1214) was Queen of Castile as wife of Alfonso VIII of Castile.

&nbsp

She was born in the castle at Domfront, Normandy, and was baptised by Henry of Marcy. She was the sixth child and second daughter of King Henry II of England and his wife Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine. Her godfather was the chronicler Robert of Torigny, who had a special interest in her and recorded her life as best he could. She received her first name as a namesake of her mother, whose name "Eleanor" (or Alienor) had previously been unrecorded though may have been related to the Greek Helen or the Italian Elena. Another view holds that in the Occitan language, Eleanor simply meant "the other Aenor," since Eleanor of Aquitaine was named for her mother, called Aenor.

&nbsp

Eleanor was a younger maternal half-sister of Marie de Champagne and Alix of France. She was a younger sister of William, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young King, Matilda of England, Richard I of England and Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany. She was also an older sister of Joan of Sicily and John of England.

&nbsp

When she was eighteen years old, in September 1180, she was married to Alfonso VIII. The marriage was arranged to secure the Pyrennean border, with Gascony offered as her dowry.

&nbsp

Of all Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughters, her namesake Eleanor (who was called Leonor by her Spanish subjects) best inherited her mother's political influence. She reigned alongside her husband, who specified in his will that she was to rule alongside their son in the event of his death. It was she who persuaded him to marry their daughter Berenguela to the king of Leon in the interest of peace.

&nbsp

When Alfonso died, his queen was reportedly so devastated with grief that she was unable to preside over the burial. Their daughter Berenguela instead performed these honors. Leonora then took sick and died only twenty-eight days after her husband, and was buried at Las Huelgas abbey in Burgos.

Queen Leonora (October 13, 1162 – October 31, 1214), was born as Princess Eleanor of England (and Aquitaine) and became Leonora, Queen of Castile as wife of Alfonso VIII of Castile.

&nbsp

She was born in the castle at Domfront, Normandy, and was baptised by Henry of Marcy. She was the sixth child and second daughter of King Henry II of England and his wife Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine. Her godfather was the chronicler Robert of Torigny, who had a special interest in her and recorded her life as best he could. She received her first name as a namesake of her mother, whose name "Eleanor" (or Alienor) had previously been unrecorded though may have been related to the Greek Helen or the Italian Elena. Another view holds that in the Occitan language, Eleanor simply meant "the other Aenor," since Eleanor of Aquitaine was named for her mother, called Aenor.

&nbsp

Eleanor was a younger maternal half-sister of Marie de Champagne and Alix of France. She was a younger sister of William, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young King, Matilda of England, Richard I of England and Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany. She was also an older sister of Joan of Sicily and John of England.

&nbsp

When she was eighteen years old, in 1180, she was married to Alfonso VIII. The marriage was arranged to secure the Pyrennean border, with Gascony offered as her dowry.

&nbsp

Of all Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughters, her namesake Eleanor (who was called Leonor by her Spanish subjects) best inherited her mother's political influence. She reigned alongside her husband, who specified in his will that she was to rule alongside their son in the event of his death. It was she who persuaded him to marry their daughter Berenguela to the king of Leon in the interest of peace.

&nbsp

When Alfonso died, his queen was reportedly so devastated with grief that she was unable to preside over the burial. Their daughter Berenguela instead performed these honors. Leonora then took sick and died only twenty-eight days after her husband, and was buried at Las Huelgas abbey in Burgos.

Séptima hija de Enrique II de Inglaterra de Inglaterra y Leonor de Aquitania, y hermana de Ricardo Corazón de León y Juan sin Tierra, ambos reyes de Inglaterra. A la edad de 9 años, en septiembre de 1170, contrajo matrimonio en Burgos con Alfonso VIII de Castilla, quien fue coronado a los doce años. El matrimonio sirvió como pacto para proteger la frontera pirenaica por lo que Leonor aportó como dote de boda el condado de Gascuña que Alfonso nunca pudo anexionar a la corona de Castilla. Sin embargo, numerosos caballeros gascones vinieron a la península para ayudar a su señor en la lucha contra los almohades.

Tuvo gran influencia política y reinó interviniendo junto al rey castellano, el cual especificó en su testamento que sería ella quien gobernaría Castilla durante la minoría de edad del heredero. Hacia 1180 el monarca castellano y su esposa decidieron fundar un monasterio de monjas cistercienses, el monasterio de Santa María la Real de Las Huelgas. Aquella fundación, dependiente en principio del monasterio de Tulebras (Navarra), desde 1187, por deseo de los reyes, se convierte en casa madre de todas las abadías femeninas en territorio de Castilla y León. Fue, además, escogida como panteón real.

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

Princesa de Inglaterra y reina consorte de Castilla entre los años 1170 y 1214, por su matrimonio con el rey Alfonso VIII de Castilla. Fue hija del rey Enrique II de Inglaterra y de su esposa, la reina Leonor de Aquitania.

&nbsp

Fue madre, entre otros, de los reyes Enrique I de Castilla y Berenguela I de Castilla.

&nbsp

Fue hija del rey Enrique II de Inglaterra y de su esposa, la reina Leonor de Aquitania. Por parte paterna fueron sus abuelos Godofredo V de Anjou y su esposa Matilde de Inglaterra, hija del rey Enrique I de Inglaterra. Por parte materna fueron sus abuelos Guillermo X de Poitiers, conde de Poitiers, y su esposa Leonor de Châtellerault, duquesa de Aquitania.

&nbsp

Fueron sus hermanos, entre otros, los reyes Ricardo Corazón de León y Juan sin Tierra, monarcas de Inglaterra.

&nbsp

Nació en 1160 y en septiembre de 1170 se desposó en la ciudad de Tarazona con Alfonso VIII de Castilla, quien había sido coronado en la ciudad de Burgos un año antes, y antes del matrimonio, sus padres, los reyes de Inglaterra, concedieron como dote a su hija el ducado de Aquitania, que pertenecía a su madre, la reina Leonor de Aquitania. Alfonso VIII de Castilla concedió como dote a su esposa los castillos de Burgos y Castrojeriz, Amaya, Avia, Saldaña, Monzón de Campos, Carrión de los Condes, Dueñas, Tariego de Cerrato, Cabezón, Medina del Campo, Astudillo, Aguilar y Villaescusa, y las rentas del puerto de Santander, Cabedo, Besgo de Santillana, Tudela, Calahorra, Arnedo, Vigera, Metria, las del castillo y ciudad de Nájera, Logroño, Grañón, Belorado, Pancorbo, Piedralada, Poza de la Sal, monasterio de Rodilla, Atienza, Ciudad de Osma, Peñafiel, Curiel de Duero, Hita, Zurita y Peñanegra, y para su cámara la ciudad de Burgos y la villa de Castrojeriz, con todos sus derechos y rentas, y le donaría además la mitad de los territorios que conquistase a los musulmanes desde que su matrimonio fuera celebrado.

&nbsp

El matrimonio sirvió para reforzar la frontera pirenaica, y Leonor Plantagenet aportó además como dote de boda el condado de Gascuña que Alfonso VIII nunca pudo anexionar a la corona de Castilla. Sin embargo, numerosos caballeros gascones vinieron a la península para ayudar a su señor en la lucha contra los almohades. Hacia 1180 el monarca castellano y su esposa decidieron fundar un monasterio de monjas cistercienses, el monasterio de las Huelgas de Burgos. Aquella fundación, dependiente en principio del Monasterio de Santa María de la Caridad de Tulebras, en (Navarra), se convirtió desde 1187, por deseo de los reyes, en casa madre de todas las abadías femeninas cistercienses en territorio de Castilla y fue elegido por Alfonso VIII y su esposa como panteón real para ellos y sus descendientes.

&nbsp

La reina ordenó edificar en la catedral de Toledo una capilla dedicada a Santo Tomás Becket o Tomás Canturiense (de Canterbury), como era conocido entonces, que fue la primera dedicada al santo británico fuera de las Islas Británicas. La capilla no se conserva en la actualidad porque fue destruída y su espacio pasó a formar parte de la capilla de Santiago de la Catedral de Toledo, que fue edificada por el condestable Álvaro de Luna para construir su propia capilla funeraria. Asimismo en 1183, sobre el solar de la mezquita de Cuenca ordenó que se comenzase a construir una catedral para la ciudad manchega, que había sido reconquistada recientemente.

&nbsp

La reina Leonor Plantagenet falleció el día 31 de octubre de 1214, varias semanas después de que falleciera su esposo, el rey Alfonso VIII de Castilla, quien falleció el día 6 de octubre de 1214.

Queen Leonora (October 13, 1162 – October 31, 1214), was born as Princess Eleanor of England (and Aquitaine) and became Leonora, Queen of Castile as wife of Alfonso VIII of Castile.

&nbsp

She was born in the castle at Domfront, Normandy, and was baptised by Henry of Marcy. She was the sixth child and second daughter of King Henry II of England and his wife Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine. Her godfather was the chronicler Robert of Torigny, who had a special interest in her and recorded her life as best he could. She received her first name as a namesake of her mother, whose name "Eleanor" (or Alienor) had previously been unrecorded though may have been related to the Greek Helen or the Italian Elena. Another view holds that in the Occitan language, Eleanor simply meant "the other Aenor," since Eleanor of Aquitaine was named for her mother, called Aenor.

&nbsp

Eleanor was a younger maternal half-sister of Marie de Champagne and Alix of France. She was a younger sister of William, Count of Poitiers, Henry the Young King, Matilda of England, Richard I of England and Geoffrey II, Duke of Brittany. She was also an older sister of Joan of Sicily and John of England.

&nbsp

When she was eighteen years old, in 1180, she was married to Alfonso VIII. The marriage was arranged to secure the Pyrennean border, with Gascony offered as her dowry.

&nbsp

Of all Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughters, her namesake Eleanor (who was called Leonor by her Spanish subjects) best inherited her mother's political influence. She reigned alongside her husband, who specified in his will that she was to rule alongside their son in the event of his death. It was she who persuaded him to marry their daughter Berenguela to the king of Leon in the interest of peace.

&nbsp

When Alfonso died, his queen was reportedly so devastated with grief that she was unable to preside over the burial. Their daughter Berenguela instead performed these honors. Leonora then took sick and died only twenty-eight days after her husband, and was buried at Las Huelgas abbey in Burgos.

Daughter of Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine. In 1176 she married Alfonso VIII, king of Castile. He was promised Gascony as her dowry and seized it by force in 1204 after Eleanor of Aquitaine's death. His brother-in-law, King John of England, recaptured it in 1206. The Cistercian royal nunnery of Las Huelgas in Castile was founded in 1187 at Eleanor's request. It is built in a similar style to buildings in Angers, her birthplace, suggesting that Eleanor may have employed an Angevin architect. She and Alfonso were buried there.

(Research):Eleanor Of Aquitaine Encyclopædia Britannica Article born c. 1122 died April 1, 1204, Fontevrault, Anjou, Fr. also called Eleanor Of Guyenne, French Éléonore, or Aliénor, D'aquitaine, or De Guyenne queen consortof both Louis VII of France (in 1137-52) and Henry II of England (in 1152-1204) and mother of Richard I the Lion-Heart and John of England. She was perhaps the most powerful woman in 12th-century Europe. Eleanor was the daughter and heiress of William X, duke of Aquitaine and count of Poitiers, who possessed one of the largest domains in France_larger, in fact, than those held by the French king. Upon William's death in 1137 she inherited the Duchy of Aquitaine and in July 1137 married the heir to the French throne, who succeeded his father, Louis VI, the following month. Eleanor became queen of France, a title she held for the next 15 years. Beautiful, capricious, and adored by Louis, Eleanor exerted considerable influence over him, often goading him into undertaking perilous ventures. From 1147 to 1149 Eleanor accompanied Louis on the Second Crusade to protect the fragile Latin kingdom of Jerusalem, founded after the First Crusade only 50 years before, from Turkish assault. Eleanor's conduct during this expedition, especially at the court of her uncle Raymond of Poitiers at Antioch, aroused Louis's jealousy and marked the beginning of their estrangement. After their return to France and a short-lived reconciliation, their marriage was annulled in March 1152. According to feudal customs, Eleanor then regained possession of Aquitaine, and two months later she married the grandson of Henry I of England, Henry Plantagenet, count of Anjou and duke of Normandy. In 1154 he became, as Henry II, king of England, with the result that England, Normandy, and the west of France were united under his rule. Eleanor had only two daughters by Louis VII; to her new husband she bore five sons and three daughters. The sons were William, who died at the age of three; Henry; Richard, the Lion-Heart; Geoffrey, duke of Brittany; and John, surnamed Lackland until, having outlived all his brothers, he inherited, in 1199, the crown of England. The daughters were Matilda, who married Henry the Lion, duke of Saxony and Bavaria; Eleanor, who married Alfonso VIII, king of Castile; and Joan, who married successively William II, king of Sicily, and Raymond VI, count of Toulouse. Eleanor would well have deserved to be named the "grandmother of Europe." During her childbearing years, she participated actively in the administration of the realm and even more actively in the management of her own domains. She was instrumental in turning the court of Poitiers, then frequented by the most famous troubadours of the time, into a centre of poetry and a model of courtly life and manners. She was the great patron of the two dominant poetic movements of the time: the courtly love tradition, conveyed in the romantic songs of the troubadours, and the historical matière de Bretagne, or "legends of Britanny," which originated in Celtic traditions and in the Historia regum Britanniae, written by the chronicler Geoffrey of Monmouth some time between 1135 and 1139. The revolt of her sons against her husband in 1173 put her cultural activities to a brutal end. Since Eleanor, 11 years her husband's senior, had long resented his infidelities, the revolt may have been instigated by her; in any case, she gave her sons considerable military support. The revolt failed, and Eleanor was captured while seeking refuge in the kingdom of her first husband, Louis VII. Her semi-imprisonment in England ended only with the death of Henry II in 1189. On her release, Eleanor played a greater political role than ever before. She actively prepared for Richard's coronation as king, was administrator of the realm during his crusade to the Holy Land, and, after his capture by the Duke of Austria on Richard's return from the east, collected his ransom and went in person to escort him to England. During Richard's absence, she succeeded in keeping his kingdom intact and in thwarting the intrigues of his brother John Lackland and Philip II Augustus, king of France, against him. In 1199 Richard died without leaving an heir to the throne, and John was crowned king. Eleanor, nearly 80 years old, fearing the disintegration of the Plantagenet domain, crossed the Pyrenees in 1200 in order to fetch her granddaughter Blanche from the court of Castile and marry her to the son of the French king. By this marriage she hoped to insure peace between the Plantagenets of England and the Capetian kings of France. In the same year she helped to defend Anjou and Aquitaine against her grandson Arthur of Brittany, thus securing John's French possessions. In 1202 John was again in her debt for holding Mirebeau against Arthur, until John, coming to her relief, was able to take him prisoner. John's only victories on the Continent, therefore, were due to Eleanor. She died in 1204 at the monastery at Fontevrault, Anjou, where she had retired after the campaign at Mirebeau. Her contribution to England extended beyond her own lifetime; after the loss of Normandy (1204), it was her own ancestral lands and not the old Norman territories that remained loyal to England. She has been misjudged by many French historians who have noted only her youthful frivolity, ignoring the tenacity, political wisdom, and energy that characterized the years of her maturity. "She was beautiful and just, imposing and modest, humble and elegant"; and, as the nuns of Fontevrault wrote in their necrology: a queen "who surpassed almost all the queens of the world."

&nbsp

Leonora of EnglandQueen Leonora (October 13, 1162 – October 31, 1214), was born as Princess Eleanor of England (and Aquitaine) and became Leonora, Queen of Castile as wife of Alfonso VIII of Castile.

BIOGRAPHY: Princess Eleanor of England was the sixth child of Henry II ofEngland and his wife Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Queen Eleanor of Aquataine personally escorted her daughter to Bordeux, where the evnoys of Alphonso VIII received the young Princess and led her off to a splendid marriage in Burgos. Princess Eleanor, in addition to her bridal furniture, took with her to Spain the old Authurian tales that so enthralled her mother's court. Princess Eleanor also took with her to Castile the distinctive Angevin style of building. at her request, the royal abbey of Las Huelgas in Spain was founded in 1187.

The nuns there were drawn from the highest of Spanish aristocracy. The second abbess of the abbey was Princess Constance, one of Eleanor and Alphonso's daughters. Las Huelgas was a royal mausoleum for Eleanor and Alphonso. The abbey reflects the influence of France, but one feature is purely Plantagenet--the domed vaulting with small additional compartments or ribs of the transept. A Spanish troupador gives us a brief impression of the young Queen of Castile, Eleanor of England;

&nbsp

And when the King had summoned to his court,

Many a knight, rich baron, and jongleur,

And the company had assembled, Then come Queen Leanore

&nbsp

Modestly clad in a mantle of rich stuff,

Red, with a silver border wrought with golden lions.

She bows to the King and near him takes her seat.

&nbsp

In her middle years, Queen Eleanor off Castile had grown into a gracious, pious, learned, wise, still-beautiful woman. She was the patroness of prelates, grandees, and troupadors and head of one of the most civilized courts in Europe.
