               Ferdinand III (1199 or 1201-1252) was King of Castile from 1217 to 1252.     
               He had the Cathedral of Burgos erected.   
               He was a patron of the mendicant orders. Mendicant orders are religious orders   
               which depend directly on charity for their livelihood.     
               Ferdinand III's feast day is May 30.

When Ferdinand's uncle Henry I died in 1217, his mother became the heiress to the throne of Castile.     
She resigned her rights in favor of Ferdinand. She served as Regent for a time.
