Roman Catholic Saint, Spanish Royalty. Born the eldest son of King Alfonso IX of Leon and his second wife Berenguela I of Castile, he inherited Castile from his uncle Henry I in 1217 and united it after his father's death in 1230 with Leon. He fought for two decades against the Moors and conquered Cordoba, Jaen, Sevilla and Cadiz until the Moors only retained the Kingdom of Granada. He was canonized in 1671 by Pope Clement X for his merits for the Catholic faith. (bio by: Lutetia)
