Afonso of Portugal - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (476 words)
Afonso was the only son and heir of king John II of Portugal by his marriage with Leonor of Viseu, princess of Portugal.
As a boy, Afonso was married to princess Isabella of Aragon, the eldest daughter of the catholic royal couple, reyes catolicos.
Princess Isabella was thus the probable heiress to the joint throne of Castile and Aragon and, by being married to the heir of Portugal that meant a union of the Iberian kingdoms in Portuguese hands.
Portugal - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Portugal (3775 words)
Afonso I was succeeded by Sancho I (ruled 1185–1211), who was engaged during the earlier part of his reign in war with the Moors and with Alfonso IX of León, and later, by his encouragement of local self-government, won for himself the title of O Povoador (founder of cities).
Afonso IV (ruled 1325–57) was chiefly occupied in wars with the Castilians and Moors, while his successor Pedro I, the Justicer (ruled 1357–67), endeavoured to lessen the power of the nobility and clergy.
Portugal then became a battleground in the struggle between the French and the British during the Peninsular War, until the French were finally ousted from Portugal in 1811.
