                      Elizabeth repeatedly sought and effected peace between King Denis and their son Alfonso.   
                       Alfonso thought he was passed over to favor the King's illegitimate children.

                          Elizabeth of Aragon (Portugal) was named for her grandaunt, St. Elizabeth of Hungary,   
                           who was canonized in 1235. Queen Elizabeth's bishop testified that she had a custom of   
                           inviting in lepers, whom she would bathe and clothe.

Elizabeth's marriage to King Denis was arranged in 1281 when she was ten years old.   
It was in 1288 that Elizabeth married Denis. She was seventeen.
