Note: Leonora of England From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leonora_of_England Queen Leonora (October 13, 1162 � October 31, 1214), was born as Prince ss Eleanor of England (and Aquitaine) and became Leonora, Queen of Casti le as wife of Alfonso VIII of Castile. She was born in Domfront Castle, Normandy. She was the sixth child and sec ond daughter of King Henry II of England and his wife Queen Alienor. Her g odfather was the chronicler Robert of Torigny, who had a special intere st in her and recorded her life as best he could. She received her first n ame as namesake of her mother, who apparently was the first Alienor (Elean or) ever. Eleanor was a younger maternal half-sister of Marie de Champagne and Al ix of France. She was a younger sister of William, Count of Poitiers, Hen ry the Young King, Matilda of England, Richard I of England and Geoffrey I I, Duke of Brittany. She was also an older sister of Joan Plantagenet a nd John of England. When she was eight years old, in 1170, she was married to Alfonso VIII. T he marriage was arranged to secure the Pyrennean border, with Gascony offe red as her dowry. They had 12 children: Berenguela, Queen of Castile (1180-1246) Sancho of Castile (1181-1181) Sancha of Castile (1182-1184?) Mafalda of Castile (1183?-1204) Urraca, princess of Castile (1186-1220), married King Alfonso II of Portug al Blanca of Castile (1188-1252), married King Louis VIII of France Fernando of Castile (1189-1211) Constance of Castile (1196?-late 1190s) Leonor of Castile (1200-1244), married King James I of Aragon Constanza, nun at Las Huelgas (1203?-1243) Henry I, King of Castile (1204-1217). Of all Eleanor of Aquitaine's daughters, her namesake Eleanor (who was cal led Leonor by her Spanish subjects) best inherited her mother's politic al influence. She reigned alongside her husband, who specified in his wi ll that she was to rule alongside their son in the event of his deat h. It was she who persuaded him to marry their daughter Berenguela to t he king of Leon in the interest of peace. When Alfonso died, his queen was reportedly so devastated with grief th at she was unable to preside over the burial. Their daughter Berenguela in stead performed these honors. Leonora then took sick and died only twenty- eight days after her husband, and was buried at Abbey de las Huelgas, in B urgos.
