Queens of Portugal. I have their names written in Spanish, so for any translation, please tell me!

·      Dulce of Aragon (1160-1198), wife of Sancho I. Married in 1175, mother of Alfonso II.

Thanks again, Umigon.

Juana of Castile is the daughter of Queen Isabella's brother and was her rival for the throne, wasn't she?
She seems to have lived a long time. Hope it wasn't in prison or anything awful like that.

Are the "Spanish" Queens recognised in Portugal as Queens of Portugal? I mean the wives of Philip II, Philip III and Philip IV.

They are, but for an absolut Portuguese royalist, the list would go like this:

* Catalina I of Portugal (1540-1614), queen regnant since 1580. Married to the duke of Braganza. Mother of Teodosio I.

* Ana de Velasco y Girón (1585-1607), wife of Teodosio I. Married in 1603, mother of Juan IV.

And if you had supported the claim of Antonio I (king for some days) it would go like this:

* Emilia of Orange (1569-1629), first wife of Manuel II. Married in 1597, mother of Manuel III.

* Luisa María de Osorio (1610-1649), second wife of Manuel II. Married in 1630.

* Juana von Hanau-Muenzenberg (1610-1673), wife of Manuel III. Married in 1646. Mother of Isabel I and Amalia I.

* Isabel I of Portugal (1648-1717), queen regnant since 1687.

* Amalia I of Portugal (1649-1731), queen regnant since 1717.

Hey Umigon. Can you tranlate these names for me? (you knew it would be me, who'd ask!)

Dulce of Aragon (1160-1198), wife of Sancho I. Married in 1175, mother of Alfonso II.

Mencía López de Haro (1230-1270), wife of Sancho II. Married in 1246.

 Inés de Castro (1327-1355), third wife of Pedro I. Married secretly in 1354. Murdered by her father-in-law, so she was not queen. But, Pedro I made her be crowned when she was ALREADY DEAD!

Thanks!

Of course!!

I don't know if Dulce has a specific translation but in language, Dulce means sweet.

Mencía, well, I don't think there is a valid translation... maybe Mensia, but I don't think so.


Inés is quite simple: Agnes!

I guess Dulce comes from a Spanish Virgin 'Nuestra Señora del Dulce Nombre', something like 'Our Lady of the Sweet Name' but I don't know, again, if it has a specific translation in English, I mean, a translation of this Virgin's name!

Dulce is "Dulcie" :)

I believe the Kings were Philip I, Philip II and Philip III in Portugal (instead of Philip II, Philip III and Philip IV).

Thanks guys. I thought Dulce would be something like sweet - the word 'dulcet' in English relates to something sweet sounding <prince lieven gets evil glares for this impromtu and unwanted English lesson>  ;D ;D

Mencía is a strange name, I think. Never heard it before...

Not a very common name I must say; however, some old castilian names are starting to eb used again, liek Mencia, Urraca (I know, poor girls), Guiomar (which I love)... Not all have a tranbslation (necessarily)...

Urraca could be a very popular name in my home town of Newcastle upon Tyne. The local football team are called the "Magpies" as they have a black and white strip. :D

Nope, the Urraca of Rodrigo the Cid has been discussed in the Queens of Castile thread!


This queen of Portugal was the grandaughter of Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine, sister of Enrique I and Berenguela I of Castile and of the famous French queen Blanche of Castile!

Surprisingly, there has been another Urraca in moder times, Princess Urraca of the Two Sicilies (1913-1999). Why in the world her parents chose that name, God only knows... Her parents were Ferdinand III, duke of Calabaria since 1894, and Princess Marie of Bavaria, daughter of King Ludwig III.

I've always wondered why Ferdinand and Marie named their daughter Urraca. Their other daughters had common names: Marie Antoinette, Maria Christina, Barbara and Lucia.

Hmmm old family name, not too common, they probably heard it and liked it (shivvers), or perhaps she was born on the day of St Urraca (we'd have to check) and thus was given the name? Or they were devoted to St Urraca, like Infanta Luisa Fernanda of Spain called her daughter Regla (I don't know what the etimology is, but it trsnaltes as ruler-the one kids use at school, or menstruation, among others) because she was devoted to Our Lady de la Regla.
