nature that would not tend to my exaltation in the eternal
worlds. I desire a fruitful, active mind, that I may be able to comprehend the designs of God, when revealed through His servants without doubting."

  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: Constance of Sicily (1249 – 9 April 1302) was Queen of Aragon as the wife of King Peter III and a pretender to the Kingdom of Sicily (as Constance II) from 1268 to 1285.[1] She was the only daughter of King Manfred of Sicily and his first wife, Beatrice of Savoy.

      Life

      Constance was largely raised by Bella d'Amichi, who remained her favorite and confidante as queen.[2] On 13 June 1262, Constance married Peter, eldest son of King James I of Aragon. Her father was killed in the Battle of Benevento (26 February 1266) while fighting against his rival, Charles of Anjou. She inherited his claim to the Sicilian throne.

      James I died on 27 July 1276 and Peter succeeded to the throne, with Constance as queen. During the War of the Sicilian Vespers (1282–1302), Peter and then their sons claimed the throne of Sicily in her right. The war resulted in the partition of the Kingdom of Sicily and the creation of the Kingdom of Trinacria under her heirs and the Kingdom of Naples under the heirs of Charles of Anjou.

      Peter III died on 2 November 1285. Constance died as a nun in Barcelona.

      Children

      Constantia and Peter III of Aragon had six children:

      Alfonso III of Aragon (1265 – 18 June 1291).
      James II of Aragon (10 August 1267 – 2 November 1327).
      Elizabeth of Aragon (1271 – 4 July 1336). Married Denis of Portugal.
      Frederick III of Sicily (13 December 1272 – 25 June 1337).
      Yolanda of Aragon (1273 – August, 1302). Married Robert of Naples.
      Peter of Aragon (1275 – 25 August 1296). Married Guillemette of Béarn, daughter of Gaston VII of Montcada, Viscount of Béarn.
