Teresa of Leão House
In the eleventh century, Teresa of Leon, illegitimate daughter of King Alfonso VI of León and Castile, who was raised by his mother and grandfather, would eventually be given in marriage by her father Henry of Burgundy, a French nobleman who repeatedly helped Alfonso VI in war of reconquest against the Moors.
As marriage dowry King offers the young couple (Teresa Leo was 13 and Henry 24) County Portucale territory between the rivers Minho and Vouga.
From this union was born in 1111, who would later become the first king of Portugal, D. Afonso Henriques.
After the death of her husband, D. Teresa calls itself the county government in the form of regency on behalf of her son, too clinging to power and reaching even the self-proclaimed herself Queen. However, by that time D. Teresa sees the contingency to defend themselves from the attacks of his half-sister D. Urraca, Queen of Castile and Leon, who wanted to lay claim to the County Portucale.
The forces of Castile and Leon easily defeated the army of Teresa Leo would eventually surrounded the Castle Lanhoso. Despite their position of inferiority, and a stroke of genius, the regent could still negotiating who would be history as the Treaty of Lanhoso by which saved his government from County of Portugal.
After this crisis Teresa Leo turns his attention to an alliance with Peres Ferdinand, Count of Trava a Galician who also looked to the county with expansionist ambitions.
This relationship made the Portuguese nobles and his own son, Afonso Henriques, revolted D. Teresa, a situation that worsened when it refused to hand over the government to the infant that had come of age. Teresa exercised the regency of the County of Portugal during the minority of D. Afonso Henriques. But in 1122, under the guidance of Archbishop of Palo Mendes Braga, Alfonso wanted to ensure its dominance in the county and
pitched a knight in Tui.
Shortly take long then open war between Afonso Henriques and his mother, D. Teresa, a dispute which ended in 1128 with the Battle of São Mamede on June 24 (day 1 of Portugal). Forces D. Henry resoundingly defeat the men of D. Teresa, forcing her to definitely deliver the government to his son.
Thank thereby leaving governance, some authors argue that it was owned by the son in Castle Lanhoso or exiled to a convent in Póvoa do Lanhoso, where he died in 1130. Nowadays, it appears that after the battle and now on the run, she and Count Ferdinand Peres were imprisoned and expelled from Portugal. D. Teresa had died in Galicia. His remains were brought later by express command of his son as King Afonso I of Portugal to Braga Cathedral, where they still lie at the tomb of her husband, Earl D. Henrique. It was thanks to their actions that the small County Portucale for years resisted the Castilian harassment, creating and maintaining an identity that would
result in the independence and creation of a new country.
