James II, King of Aragon (10 August 1267 in Valencia – 2 November or 5 November 1327 in Barcelona), in Spanish Jaime II, in Aragonese Chaime II, in Catalan Jaume II, also James II of Barcelona, called The Just (Aragonese: Lo Chusto, Catalan: El Just) was the second son of Peter III of Aragon and Constance of Sicily.
He succeeded his father as King of Sicily in 1285, and was then known as "James I of Sicily." Upon the death of his brother Alfonso III in 1291, he succeeded also to the throne of the Crown of Aragon. By a peace treaty with Charles II of Anjou in 1296, he agreed to give up Sicily, but the Sicilians instead installed on the throne his brother Frederick. He reigned until his death in 1327.

nfanta Isabella of Castile (1283 in Toro - 1328), Viscountess of Limoges, was the first Queen consort of James II of Aragon and the second wife of John III, Duke of Brittany.

On 1 December 1291, Isabella married James II of Aragon in the city of Soria. The bride was only eight years old and the groom twenty-four. The marriage was never consummated.
Sancho IV died on 25 April 1295. James chose to change his alliances and take advantage of the turmoil inside Castile. He had their wedding annulled and proceeded to marry Blanche of Anjou, second daughter of Charles II of Naples and Maria Arpad of Hungary.
Isabella remained unwed for about a decade. In 1310, at Burgos, she married her second husband John III, Duke of Brittany. There were no children from this marriage. She was buried at Priere.

Sadly the tomb is empty as the church was ransacked by French troops during the First Carlist War and the royal tombs were looted by soldiers .The mummy of the king was burnt and the remains of his wife, Blanche de Anjou were thrown down a well but later recovered and reburied.
