[Outline History of Mankind] !Dau. of Princess Eleanor and King Alphonse VIII of Castille; m. King Louis VIII of France; mother of Louis IX (St. Louis). [Eleanor of Aquitaine, p. viii] !Part of the peace treaty signed between her uncle John Lackland and Philip Augustus of France. Her grandmother Eleanor of Aquitaine fetched her from Castile when she was 12 to be betrothed to Louis. They were married in Portmort in Normandy because they couldn't be married in the Ile-de-France because King Philip Augustus' misdeeds with a mistress had the kingdom under an interdict. Philip was not even allowed to attend the ceremony. Nevertheless, he provided handsomely for entertainment. The sun shone, the banners flew, and the fields rang with song and the clashing of arms from the jousting arena. [Eleanor, p. 340-1] Dau. of Alfonso IX of Castile and Eleanor Plantagenet; m. Louis VIII of France. [WFT Vol 2 Ped 976] 1185-1252. Dau. of Alfonso VIII, king of Castile, queen of Louis VIII of France, mother of Louis IX of France. Blanche was married to Louis in 1200.

She and Louis IX brought what was said to be the Holy Cross to Paris from the east in 1241, and built the Satine-Chapelle to house it.
