Notes for Alfonso de la Cerda/Mahalda de Brienne

Alfonso de la Cerda (1), (el Desheredado), was born in 1270, and became the legitimate heir to the throne of Castile and León when his father died in 1275. When his grandfather, King Alfonso X, died in1284, Alfonso de la Cerda, being only fourteen years old, was passed over for succession to the throne in favor of his uncle, Sancho IV (el Bravo). Alfonso and his younger brother were taken by their grandmother Violante de Aragón to Aragon, and only the threat of excommunication stopped King Philip of France, the brother of their mother, from declaring war on Castile if his nephews were not reinstated.

In about 1290, or after 1294, in France, Alfonso married Mahalda de Brienne, called, elsewhere, Mahalda de Narbona, and they had six children, Luis, Juan Alfonso, Margarita, Ines, Maria de la Cerda, and Alfonso de España. Alfonso, the father, died in either 1327, or 1334, in Piedrahita, and Mahalda, Señora de Lunel, died after 1348.
