Alfonso IX (1166?-1230), king of Leon (1188-1230). In 1197 he married Berengaria (1171-1246), daughter of his first cousin King Alfonso VIII of Castile and granddaughter of King Henry II of England. Pope Innocent III annulled the marriage in 1214 because of the family relationship of Alfonso and Berengaria. Alfonso founded the University of Salamanca and captured Caceres, Badajoz, and Merida from the Muslim Almohads.
