Alfonso IX of León and Wives

Alfonso IX (15 August 1171 – 23 or 24 September 1230) was king of León and Galicia from the death of his father Ferdinand II in 1188 until his own death.

He took steps towards modernizing and democratizing his dominion and founded the University of Salamanca in 1212. In 1188 he summoned the first parliament reflecting the fullest representation of the citizenry ever seen in Western Europe, the Cortes of León.

He took part in the work of the Reconquest, conquering the area of Extremadura (including the cities of Cáceres and Badajoz).

In the year 1230, City of León. King Alfonso IX died. Although the future remains uncertain, the King will be remembered for what he had done - to take the first steps into democracy in the history of Europe.

His sudden death in 1230 caused the abandonment of the Siege of Jaén by his son and successor Ferdinand which had begun in June of that year.
The city was finally taken by Castilian forces in 1246.
