Afonso III (pronounced [ɐˈfõsu] in Portuguese; rare English alternatives: Alphonzo or Alphonse), or Affonso (Archaic Portuguese), Alfonso or Alphonso (Portuguese-Galician) or Alphonsus (Latin), the Bolognian (Port. o Bolonhês) or the Brave (Port. o Bravo), the fifth King of Portugal (May 5, 1210 in Coimbra – February 16, 1279 in Alcobaça, Coimbra or Lisbon) and the first to use the title King of Portugal and the Algarve, since 1249. He was the second son of King Afonso II of Portugal and his wife, Urraca, princess of Castile; he succeeded his brother, King Sancho II of Portugal on 4 January 1248.
As the second son of King Afonso II of Portugal, Afonso was not expected to inherit the throne, which was destined to go to his elder brother Sancho. He lived mostly in France, where he married Matilda, the heiress of Boulogne, in 1238, thereby becoming Count of Boulogne. In 1246, conflicts between his brother, the king, and the church became unbearable. Pope Innocent IV then ordered Sancho II to be removed from the throne and be replaced by the Count of Boulogne. Afonso, of course, did not refuse the papal order and marched to Portugal. Since Sancho was not a popular king, the order was not hard to enforce; he was exiled to Castile and Afonso III became king in 1248 after his brother's death. To ascend the throne, he abdicated from the county of Boulogne and later (1253) divorced Matilda.

Mahaut or Matilda II of Boulogne (a.k.a Mathilde, Maud de Dammartin) was sovereign Countess of Boulogne from 1216 to ca. 1260 and 1248-53 the queen consort of Portugal.
Matilda was the daughter of Ida, Countess of Boulogne and her husband and co-ruler Renaud de Dammartin, count of Boulogne. She succeeded her mother in 1216. She first married in 1223 Philippe Hurepel, younger son of Philip II of France, count of Clermont-en-Beauvais, who in her right became count of also Boulogne, Mortain, Aumale, and Dammartin. Both her husbands were, in turn, her co-rulers as counts consort of Boulogne during the marriages.
Philip Hurepel revolted against Blanche of Castile when Louis VIII died in 1226. When count Philip died in 1235, Matilda continued to reign and was three years later, in 1238, married so that the county would again have a male head. The second husband was Alphonse, second son of king Sancho II of Portugal, who on 4 January 1248 became king Alfonso III of Portugal and at that time renounced Boulogne. Alfonso divorced Matilda in 1253.
She had a son and a daughter with count Philip, but no surviving issue with Alphonso, who desperately needed heirs after ascending the Portuguese throne. Matilda's then barrenness (age) was the real reason for divorce. According to reports, queen Matilda remained in Boulogne and was not allowed to follow her husband to Portugal.
