    • 1032-?. Weduwe van prins Al Mamun van Saville, wellicht dochter van Abn-Alheje, koning van Dania en afstammeling van Mohamed "de profeet"..
      Whishaw p. 254-257: "The one undeniable and very important fact which we learn
      from the Chronicle [Cronica General, by Sandoval], is that Alfonso married Motamid's
      daughter Zaida. ... Sandoval ... discusses the date of the marriage, and is inclined to attribute it to the year 1097, because the Infante Sancho, the child of the marriage, was said to have been eleven years old when he met his death at the battle of Ucles. This we know is wrong, for Motamid was deprived of his kingdom and exiled in 1091. But it is quite impossible, on the data given in the Chronicle, to arrive with any certainty at the true date of the marriage. Alfonso was married six times, and the dates have to be deduced from the occasional appearance of the signatures of his wives to various grants and privileges conferred by him. The confusion is increased by the fact that Zaida, on her marriage, was baptised by the name Isabel, and that another of Alfonso's wives was also called Isabel, whose epitaph says that she died in 1107 and was the daughter of Louis, King of France. [note 1. Cronico General, xi 314. This makes the confusion worse confounded, because Louis VI. did not come to the throne till the year after his alleged daughter's death.] [T]he epitaph on her tombstone ... distinctly states that she was Alfonso's wife. [note 3. H. R. Regina Elisabet uxor Regis Alfonsi; filia Benavet Regis Sibiliae; quae prius Zayda fut vocata. (Cronic General, xi 296; Mariana, Book
      IX, chap xx.)] Unluckily the epitaph does not mention the date of her death. The writer of the Chronicle describes the tomb in the Chapel Royal of San Isidro of Leon, in considerable detail. Only one child seems to have been born of the marriage, but this was a son, and all Alfonso's other children were daughters. [1]
