Constanza

  • Marriage: Sancho IV "El de Peñalén" García de Navarra

bullet  Noted events in her life were:

• Web Reference: Charles Cawley's Medieval Lands, Constanza.
Charles Cawley has given Constanza, the daughter of Estefanía Foix as the wife for Sancho García. Estefanía Foix was the wife of Sancho's father, García Sánchez de Navarra. This would make Constanza and Sancho step-brother/sister.

Cawley states "Salazar y Acha hypothesises that this alleged daughter of Stephanie de Foix, wife of García V King of Navarre, was Constanza, born from an otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage with a noble at the court of Barcelona [Salazar y Acha, J. ´Reflexiones sobre la posible historicidad de un episodio de la Crónica Najerense´, Principe de Viana, Anejo no. 14, 1992, p. 154. ]. He cites the charter dated 29 Nov 1074 under which Sancho IV King of Navarre granted "unas casas en la ciudad de Calahorra" to "germano meo domno Sancio et uxori vestra vel germana mea domna Constanza" [Rodríguez, R. (ed.) Catálogo de Documentos del Monasterio de Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas, 191, p. 60, quoted in Salazar y Acha ´Reflexiones sobre…´, pp. 152 and 153], suggesting that it would be unusual for King Sancho to refer to his brother´s wife as "germana" unless there was also a blood relationship between them. However, Salazar y Acha´s hypothesis, although appealing, appears unlikely to be correct because Queen Estefania does not include Constanza in her testament dated to (1066) which names all her other known children [Nájera Santa María 18, p. 34].


Constanza married Sancho IV "El de Peñalén" García de Navarra, son of García "el de Nájera" Sánchez rey de Navarra and Unknown. (Sancho IV "El de Peñalén" García de Navarra was born in 1039 in Navarra and died on 4 Jun 1076 in Peñalén, Iberia.)
