Historical background


PROVENCE - COUNTY OF PROVENCE - ALPHONSE II OF ARAGON (Governor of Provence)

(1162-1196)

Alfonso of Aragon (1152-1196) is the son of Raymond Beranger, Count of Barcelona and Petronilla, Queen of Aragon. Alfonso of Aragon became king of Aragon in 1162. In 1174, he married Sancha (1154-1208), daughter of Alfonso VII of Castile. By dint of conquest he managed to invade Roussillon and Béarn. After the death of Raymond Beranger, his brother, the Count of Provence, he inherited his possessions but opposed to the Counts of Toulouse. At his death in 1196, his son Pedro II (1176-1213) inherited the throne of Aragon while his other son became Count of Provence by the name of Alfonso II.
