Constance of Sicily
Birth: 1152
Death: Nov. 27, 1198

Sicilian Monarch. The posthumous daughter of King Roger II of Sicily, she married Prince Heinrich in 1186. Heinrich's father Friedrich Barbarossa died in 1190 and Constance and Heinrich were crowned Emperor and Empress. In December 1194 she gave birth to a son who was named after his two grandfathers, Friedrich Roger. After Heinrich's death she went to Sicily and renounced her sons claims for the German kingship and empire and placed him under the protection of Pope Innocent III. She died one year later. Dante mentioned her in his work "Divine Comedy". (bio by: Lutetia)
