Alfonso III (1265 – 18 June 1291), called the Liberal (el Liberal) or the Free (also "the Frank," from el Franc), was the King of Aragon and Count of Barcelona (as Alfons II) from 1285. He conquered the Kingdom of Majorca between his succession and 1287.
He was a son of Peter III of Aragon and his Queen consort Constantia of Sicily, daughter and heiress of Manfred of Sicily. His matenal grandmother Beatrice of Savoy was a daughter of Amadeus IV of Savoy and Anne of Burgundy.
Soon after assuming the throne, he conducted a campaign to reincorporate the Balearic Islands into the Kingdom of Aragon - which had been lost due to the division of the kingdom by his grandfather, James I of Aragon. Thus in 1285 he declared war on his uncle, James II of Majorca, and conquered both Majorca (1285) and Ibiza (1286), effectively reassuming suzerainty over the Kingdom of Majorca. He followed this with the conquest of Minorca - until then, an autonomous Muslim state (Manûrqa) under the Kingdom of Majorca - on 17 January 1287, the anniversary of which now serves as Minorca's national holiday.

Eleanor of England (18 June 1269 – 29 August 1298), was the eldest surviving daughter of Edward I of England and his first wife, Eleanor of Castile.
For a long period she was betrothed to King Alphonso III of Aragon (d. 18 June 1291). However, Alphonso's death occurred before the marriage could take place.
Eleanor subsequently married the French nobleman, Henry III, Count of Bar in 1293, as a means of allying Bar and England against the Kings of France. Eleanor and Henry had three surviving children.

King Edward I's primary reason for coming to Oloron was to secure the release of his cousin, Charles of Salerao. King Alfonso III wanted hostages and money. Three of Charles's sons, including his heir, were to be handed over. Also sixty nobles from his French county of Provence were to be handed over. Charles was suppose to pay 50,000 marks. Edward promised papal permission for his daughter to marry Alfonso.
