Tomb of Sancho VII "El Fuerte" of Navarra located in the Chapel of San Agustín of the Collegiate Church of Roncesvalles.

Second wife of King Sancho VII was, according to some sources, Clemence of Germany, daughter of Frederick I, the Holy Roman Emperor. She is the woman who accompanies the praying figure of the king in the Chapel of San Agustín de Roncesvalles.
