Matilda of Savoy, Queen of Portugal
Matilda was the daughter of Count Amadeus III. of Savoy, born (* 1092 † 1148 ). His mother, Gisela of Burgundy, came from the family of Burgundian rulers whose branch line from 1139 put the kings of Portugal.
Mathilde was so distantly related to Alfonso Henriques, the first king of Portugal, whom she married in 1146. By this marriage she became queen of Portugal ( as a wife, not as a sovereign in its own right ).
With Alfonso I Henriques she had five children, including:
- Mafalda († 1173/74 ), wife of Alfonso II of Aragon
- Therese († March 6, 1218 ), wife of Philip, Count of Flanders and Eudo III. Duke of Burgundy
- Sancho I. (Portugal ) (* November 11, 1154, † March 26, 1211 )
- Urraca of León ( † October 16, 1175 ), wife of King Ferdinand II
