The Chronicle of Alberic de Trois-Fontaines names "Henricum qui iuvenis obiit et quinque sorores, prima Berengaria…secunda Urraca, tertia regina Francie, quarta Alienor, quinta Constantia monialis" as children of "sorore regis Anglie Richardi…Alienor…soror ex alio patre comitisse Marie Campaniensis", specifying that Urraca was "regina Portugalie". The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes records that "Aldefonsum", son of "Sancius" & his wife, married "Urracam filiam Regis Castellæ…Aldefonsi". The testament of “Regina Portugaliæ Donna Urraca”, dated 31 Jul 1214, fearing her own death bequeathed half of her property to “viro meo Regi Domno Alphonso”, and made various religious donations. “Alphonsus...Portugaliæ Rex...cum uxore mea Regina D. Urraca et filliis meis Infantibus Dono Sancio et Dono Alphonso et Dona Eleonor” granted property “in Ansede” to “Gunsalvo Gomes homini meo” by charter dated Jun 1217. The Breve Chronicon Alcobacense records that "Alfonsus" was buried "Alcobacie cum uxore sua domna Urraca filia regis Castelle domni Alfonsi". 1
Urraca married Infante dom Afonso II "o Gordo" DE PORTUGAL, son of Infante dom Sancho I “o Poblador” DE PORTUGAL and Infanta doña Dulcia DE ARAGÓN, in 1206. (Infante dom Afonso II DE PORTUGAL was born on 23 Apr 1185 in Coimbra, Portugal and died on 25 Mar 1223 in Coimbra, Portugal.)
