Main

king of Castile from 1217 to 1252 and of Leon from 1230 to 1252 andconqueror of the Muslim cities of Có rdoba (1236), Jaé n (1246), andSevilla (1248). During his campaigns, Murcia submitted to his sonAlfonso (later Alfonso X), and the Muslim kingdom of Granada becamehis vassal.

Ferdinand was the son of Alfonso IX of Leon and Berenguela, daughterof Alfonso VIII of Castile. At birth, he was the heir to Leon, buthis uncle, Henry I of Castile, died young, and his mother inheritedthe crown of Castile, which she conferred on him. His father, likemany Leonese, opposed the union, and Ferdinand found himself at warwith him. By his will Alfonso IX tried to disinherit his son, but thewill was set aside, and Castile and Leon were permanently united in1230.

Ferdinand married Beatrice of Swabia, daughter of the Holy Romanemperor, a title that Ferdinand´s son Alfonso X was to claim. Hisconquest of Lower Andalusia was the result of the disintegration ofthe Almohad state. The Castilians and other conquerors occupied thecities, driving out the Muslims and taking over vast estates.

Ferdinand´s second wife was Joan of Ponthieu, whom he married in 1237;their daughter Eleanor married the future Edward I of England in 1254.Ferdinand settled in Sevilla, where he is buried.
