King and Confessor.

First cousin of Saint Ferdinand, he was very Christianly educated by his mother, the great Queen of France, Blanche of Castile. From the throne he shone with heroic examples of a Christian ruler, upright, pious, exemplary charitable to the people.

He undertook two Crusades to rescue the Holy Sepulcher but in the first he was left with the Saracens, and in the second he was infected with the plague, from which he died in Tunisia.
