Sancho II (pronounced [ˈsɐ̃ʃu]), rarely translated as Sanctius II in English, nicknamed "the Pious" (Portueguese: o Piedoso) and "the Caped" or "the Capuched" (Portuguese: o Capelo), (September 8, 1209, Coimbra- January 4, 1248, Toledo), fourth King of Portugal, was the eldest son of Afonso II of Portugal by his wife, Infanta Urraca of Castile. Sancho became king in 1223 and was succeeded by his brother, King Afonso III in 1247.
By the time of his accession to the throne, in 1223, Portugal was embroiled in a difficult diplomatic conflict with the Catholic church. His father, Afonso II, had been excommunicated by Pope Honorius III, for his attempts at reducing the Church's power within the country. A treaty of 10 articles was signed between the Pope and Sancho II, but the king paid little attention to its fulfillment. His priority was the Reconquista, the reconquest of the southern Iberian Peninsula from the Moors. From 1236 onwards, Sancho II conquered several cities in the Algarve and Alentejo, securing the Portuguese position in the region.

Mécia Lopes de Haro (d. 1270) was the Queen consort of Sancho II of Portugal.
She was a daughter of Lope Díaz II de Haro and Urraca Alfonso of Leon. Her mother was an illegitimate daughter of Alfonso IX of Leon.
She married Sancho c. 1246 but her husband died on 4 January 1248. They were childless. Sancho was succeeded by his brother Afonso III of Portugal who was already claiming the throne in a civil war.
