  Research Notes:

The De Rebus Hispaniæ of Rodericus Ximenes names "Sancius Regem Portugalliæ successorem…Aldefonsum" as the sons of "Aldefonsum" & his wife. The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Sancho, D. Alfonso, D. Fernando de Serpa" as the sons of "D. Alonso Sanchez Rey de Portugal" and his wife "D. Urraca". “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.

Comte de Boulogne-sur-Mer 1238-1251. “Alfonsus, filius…regis Portugaliæ, comes Bolonie” recorded his agreements with “Thomam comitem et Johannam eius uxorem comitissam Flandrensem” by charter dated Nov 1241 which names “quondam comes Ferrandus patruus noster et Johanna, quondam eius uxor…et Marie filie ipsius…patruus noster P. dominus regni Majoricarum, vel Sancyus frater noster rex Portugalie…M. comitissa Bolonie uxor nostra”. Regent of Portugal 1245-1248. “Alphonsus comes Boloniæ et filius...Alphonsi Regis Portugalliæ” swore to govern “Regum Portugalliæ” by charter dated 7 Sep 1245 at Paris.

He succeeded his brother in 1248 as AFONSO III “o Restaurador” King of Portugal. He reconquered the Algarve. He summoned the first meeting of a three estate Portuguese Cortes at Leiria in 1254. The testament of “Alphonsus...Rex Portug. et Algarbii”, dated 23 Nov 1271, chose burial “in Monasterio Alcobaciæ”, appointed “Dono Dionysio meo filio” as his successor, made bequests to “D. Blancæ filiæ meæ...D. Sanciæ filiæ meæ...D. Alienor, quam habeo de Elvira Stephani...Egidio Alphonsi filio meo...Martini Alphonsi filio meo...Alphonso filio meo, quem nutrivit Martinus Petri clericus meus”, and appointed among the executors “Reginam Beatricem uxorem meam...”.

The Chronicon Conimbricensi records the death “XIV Kal Mai” in 1279 of “Dñs Alfonsus…Rex tertius Portugalis”. The Breve Chronicon Alcobacense records that "Rex Alfonsus…comes Bolonie" was buried "Alcobacie cum uxore sua". The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos records that "D. Alonso…Rey de Portugal" died "Era 1317" and was buried "en Alcobaça". 1
