Richard I of England and Princess Berengaria of Navarre - 1191

Richard I was King of England from 1189 to 1199. He married Princess Berengaria of Navarre. The wedding was held in Limassol on May 12, 1191 at the Chapel of St. George.
An English poem describes the wedding of Richard and Berengaria, suggesting it was celebrated in style:
There King Ric spoused Beringer
The King's daughter of Navarre
And made there the richest spousing
That ever maked any king.
And crowned himself Emperor,
And her Empress, with honour.

The union between the Princess of Navarre (Berengaria) and a Prince of England (Richard) would be very beneficial for Eleanor of Acquitaine. An alliance with the Kingdom of Navarre would mean protection to the southern borders of Acquitaine.

Since Richard was busy preparing for the Third Crusade, he sent his mother Queen Eleanor to Navarre to secure Princess Berengaria's hand in marriage.

Richard and Berengaria were married in Limassol in May of 1191. There was great feasting and revelry.
A chronicler wrote:
"And there in the joyous month of May, 1191, in the flourishing and spacious isle of Cyprus, did King Richard solemnly take to wife his beloved wife Berengaria."

The ceremony was performed by Richard's chaplain, Nicholas.
Richard the groom wore a rose silk tunic accessorized with a scarlet cap, gold embroidered cape and sash and a gold and silver scabbard.
