Note: King of Portugal, Pedro I, The Justicer RESEARCH NOTES: 1357-1367: King of Portugal [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p237] Peter I of Portugal From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Pedro I of Portugal (pron. IPA /'pe.d?u/; April 8, 1320 ? January 18, 1367) was the eighth king of Portugal (in English, Peter I), known as the Cruel (not to be confused with Pedro I of Castile, also known as Pedro the Cruel) or as the Lawful (Port. o Justiceiro). He was the third but only surviving son of Afonso IV of Portugal by his wife, princess Beatrice of Castile. Pedro I succeeded his father in 1357. Pedro is chiefly known for his love of In�es de Castro, the Castilian maidservant that his father had killed in 1355. Pedro certainly led at least two revolts against his father before succeeding to the throne. Once he was king he announced that he had married In�es de Castro in secret and that she, despite dead, was Queen of Portugal. This fact is based only in the king's word. As King, Pedro was a surprising success. Although he brutally murdered the killers of In�es de Castro, he also persecuted felons of all classes, and instituted reforms to free the Portuguese Crown and Church from Papal intervention. His wife, Constanza, had been a Castilian princess, and it was for this reason, Pedro joined an Aragonese invasion of Castile-Leon. Genealogy Pedro I first married Blanca of Castile, daughter of Pedro of Castile and Maria of Aragon. The marriage was annulled in 1333. He married again to Constance of Castile, daughter of Juan Manuel, Count of Penagiel, and Constance of Aragon. She gave him three sons and one daughter. He is thought to have married a third time to his mistress In�es de Castro, daughter of Pedro Fernando de Castro and Beatrice of Portugal.
