Quarto filho do monarca Afonso Henriques, foi baptizado com o nome de Martinho, por haver nascido no dia do santo com o mesmo nome, e não estaria preparado para reinar; no entanto, a morte do seu irmão mais velho, D. Henrique, quando contava apenas três anos de idade, levou à alteração da sua onomástica para um nome mais hispânico, ficando desde então Sancho Afonso.

#Constança de Portugal (1182-1202)
#Afonso II de Portugal (1185-1233)
#Pedro, infante de Portugal (1187-1258), conde de Urgel pelo casamento com Aurembiaix Armengel; foi também Senhor de Maiorca.
#Fernando, infante de Portugal (1188-1233), viveu no estrangeiro, casou com Joana da Flandres
#Henrique de Portugal (1189-?)

Em 1170, Sancho foi armado cavaleiro pelo seu pai logo após o acidente de D. Afonso Henriques em Badajoz e tornou-se seu braço direito, quer do ponto de vista militar, quer do ponto de vista administrativo. Nestes primeiros tempos de Portugal enquanto país independente, muitos eram os inimigos da coroa, a começar pelo reino de Castela e Leão que havia controlado Portugal até então. Para além do mais, a Igreja Católica demorava em consagrar a independência de Portugal com a sua bênção. Para compensar estas falhas, Portugal procurou aliados dentro da Península Ibérica, em particular o reino de Aragão, um inimigo tradicional de Castela, que se tornou no primeiro país a reconhecer Portugal. Oacordo foi firmado 1174 pelo casamento de Sancho, então príncipe herdeiro, com a infanta Dulce Berenguer, irmã mais nova do rei Afonso II de Aragão.

Com a morte de Afonso Henriques em 1185, Sancho I torna-se no segundo rei de Portugal. Tendo Coimbra como centro do seu reino, Sancho deu por finda as guerras fronteiriças pela posse da Galiza e dedicou-se a guerrear os Mouros localizados a Sul. Aproveitou a passagem pelo porto de Lisboa dos cruzados da terceira cruzada, na primavera de 1189, para conquistar Silves, um importante centro administrativo e económico do Sul, com população estimada em 20.000 pessoas. Sancho ordenou a fortificação da cidade e construção do castelo que ainda hoje pode ser admirado. A posse de Silves foi efémera já que em 1190 Abu Yusuf Ya'qub al-Mansur cercou a cidade de Silves com um exército e com outro atacou Torres Novas, que apenas conseguiu resistir durante dez dias, devido ao rei de Leão e Castela ameaçar de novo o Norte.




Han gjorde seg fortjent til sitt tilnavn «Bondevennen» ved sin iver for å forbedre landbruket. Han bidro også til byenes oppkomst ved å gi privilegier og befolke dem med kristne nybyggere. Sanho blegift i 1174 med Dulcia. Han hadde også konkubinene Maria, datter til Arya Nuñes de Fornelos og Maria Paez de Ribera.64



Sancho I (pronounced [?s??u]; rarely translated to Sanctius I), nicknamed the Populator (Portuguese o Povoador), second monarch of Portugal, was born on November 11, 1154 in Coimbra and died on March 26, 1212 in the same city. He was the second but only surviving legitimate son and fourth child of Afonso I Henriques of Portugal by his wife, Maud of Savoy. Sancho succeeded his father in 1185. He used the title King of the Algarve and/or King of Silves between 1189 and 1191

In 1170, Sancho was knighted by his father, King Afonso I, and from then on he became his second in command, both administratively and militarily. At this time, the independence of Portugal(declared in 1139) was not firmly established. The kings of León and Castile were trying to re-annex the country and the Roman Catholic Church was late in giving its blessing and approval. Due to this situation Afonso I had to search for allies within the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal made an alliance with the Kingdom of Aragon and together they fought Castile and León. To secure the agreement, Infante Sancho of Portugal married, in 1174, Infanta Dulce Berenguer, younger sister of King Alfonso II of Aragon. Aragon was thus the first Iberian kingdom to recognize the independence of Portugal.

With the death of Afonso I in 1185, Sancho I became the second king of Portugal. Coimbra was the centre of his kingdom; Sancho terminated the exhausting and generally pointless wars against his neighbours for control of the Galician borderlands. Instead, he turned all his attentions to the south, towards the Moorish small kingdoms (called taifas) that still thrived. With Crusader help he took Silves in 1191. Silves was an important city of the South, an administrative and commercial town with population estimates around 20,000 people. Sancho ordered the fortification of the city and built a castle which is today an important monument of Portuguese heritage. However, military attention soon had to be turned again to the North, where León and Castile threatened again the Portuguese borders. Silves was again lost to the Moors. It should be noted that the global Muslim population had climbed to about 6 per cent as against the Christian population of 12 per cent by 1200.

Sancho I dedicated much of his reign to political and administrative organization of the new kingdom. He accumulated a national treasure, supported new industries and the middle class of merchants. Moreover, he created several new towns and villages (like Guarda in 1199) and took great care in populating remote areas in the northern Christian regions of Portugal, notably with Flemings and Burgundians – hencethe nickname "the Populator". The king was also known for his love of

Sancho I gifte sig med Dulcia, dotter till Ramon Berenguer IV. När Sanchos far Alfonso avled av ålderdom 1185, blev Sancho kung, och fortsatte striderna mot muslimerna i Silves (huvudstaden i Algarve). Han invaderade även Leon genom att ta Tuy. Ett par år senare, besökte Rikard Lejonhjärta Lissabon på hans resa till det heliga landet. Rikard avdelade ett av hans skepp för att hjälpa Sancho försvara Silves mot motattacker. Vid samma tidpunkt tvingades en moorisk expedition att lämna en belägring av Santarem. När flottan hade avlägsnat sig, kom en ny muslimsk armé från Afrika och återtog varenda stad söder om Tagus. Under Sanchos regering, slog tempelriddare tillbaka en belägring vid Tomar, vilket bekräftade hur värdefulla de var i kampen mot moorerna. I striderna mot muslimerna, deltog även riddare från Norden, bl.a. Valdemar Sejr som gifte sig med Sanchos dotter Berengaria. Sancho hade andra intressen förutom erövringar. Han uppmuntrade handeln med Flandern, och hans hov var centrum för lyrisk poesi.

--------------------
Segundo rei de Portugal (1185-1211), filho de D. Afonso Henriques e de D. Mafalda, foi cognominado "o Povoador". Nasceu em 11 de Novembro de 1154, em Coimbra, e morreu em 26 de Março de 1211 na mesma cidade. Casou em 1174 com D. Dulce de Aragão, filha de Raimundo Béranger IV. Subiu ao trono em Dezembro de 1185 por morte de D. Afonso Henriques.
Foi iniciado na vida militar aos 12 anos, tendo chefiado uma expedição a Cidade Rodrigo contra Fernando II que se saldou por um fracasso. Foi armado cavaleiro em 15 de Agosto de 1170, na cidade de Coimbra, logo após o acidente de D. Afonso Henriques em Badajoz. Participou desde então no exercício do poder político, talvez devido à incapacidade física do rei.
O povoamento das terras abandonadas foi uma das suas principais preocupações. Para alcançar este objectivo desenvolveu as instituições municipais e concedeu diversos forais, principalmente na Beira e em Trás-os-Montes: Gouveia (1186), Covilhã (1186), Viseu (1187), Bragança (1187), etc. Entre os anos de 1192 e 1195 receberam também forais Penacova, Marmelar, Pontével, Povos e S. Vicente da Beira. Os concelhos fronteiriços receberam privilégios particulares, tais como isenção de trabalhar na construção de castelos e muros, isenção do pagamento dos impostos de portagem e de colheita. A criação dos concelhos, para além do contributo que deu para o melhoramento económico e social, trouxe também vantagens de ordem militar e financeira, pois promoveu o aumento do número de combatentes que não recebiam soldo. Fixaram-se também em Portugal neste período numerosos colonos estrangeiros. As ordens religiosas, nomeadamente as militares, receberam de D. Sancho inúmeras concessões de terras e castelos.
O monarca aproveitou a passagem pelo porto de Lisboa dos cruzados da terceira cruzada, na primavera de 1189, para atacar o Algarve. Tomou o castelo de Alvor e atacou Silves (que era na época uma das mais populosas e cultas cidades do ocidente peninsular). Foi acordado que a cidade seriapara os portugueses e o saque para os cruzados. Após uma rápida conquista dos subúrbios, portugueses e cruzados depararam-se com uma encarniçada resistência que durou 43 dias. D. Sancho I passouentão a intitular-se rei de Portugal e dos Algarves. Durou pouco tempo esta conquista, já que em 1190 Iacub Almançor cercou a cidade de Silves com um exército e com outro atacou Torres Novas, queapenas conseguiu resistir durante 10 dias. Torres Novas foi, pouco depois, restituída pelos muçulmanos, mas estes, entusiasmados com a reconquista de Silves, reconquistaram também Alcácer, Palmela e Almada.
D. Sancho envolveu-se também nos conflitos entre Leão e Castela, entrando em guerra com Leão em 1196 e 1199. Durante o seu reinado, deterioraram-se as boas relações com a Santa Sé,primeiro por tentar furtar-se ao pagamento do censo anual de dois marcos-ouro, depois por ter entrado em litígio com o bispo do Porto aquando do casamento do herdeiro do trono com D. Urraca, filha de Afonso VIII. O papa Inocêncio III incumbiu o bispo de Samora de anunciar a pena de excomunhão a D. Sancho e àqueles que tinham retido o bispo. O monarca português entrou também em conflito com o bispo de Coimbra, tendo sido por isso admoestado pelo papa. Ao sentir aproximar-se a sua morte, reconciliou-se com os prelados e aceitou as exigências do papa.
Segundo o estudioso Jaime Batalha Reis, iniciou-se no reinado de D. Sancho I a amoedação do ouro, que para outros autores terá surgido anteriormente. O trabalho administrativo continuou a fazer-se na Câmara Régia que funcionava noPaço, tal como no reinado anterior, estando todo o trabalho a cargo de um só homem, o chanceler. Neste reinado sabe-se que alguns portugueses frequentaram universidades estrangeiras e que um grupo de juristas conhecia o Direito que se ministrava na escola de Bolonha. Também o rei foi poeta e em 1192 concedeu ao mosteiro de Santa Cruz 400 morabitinos para que se mantivessem em França os mongesque lá quisessem estudar.

O acordo foi firmado 1174 pelo casamento de Sancho, então príncipe herdeiro, com a infanta Dulce Berenguer, irmã mais nova do rei Afonso II de Aragão.

Com a morte de Afonso Henriques em 1185, Sancho I torna-se no segundo rei de Portugal. Tendo Coimbra como centro do seu reino, Sancho deu por finda as guerras fronteiriças pela posse da Galiza e dedicou-se a guerrear os Mouros localizados a Sul. Aproveitou a passagem pelo porto de Lisboa dos cruzados da terceira cruzada, na primavera de 1189, para conquistar Silves, um importante centro administrativo e económico do Sul, com população estimada em 20.000 pessoas. Sancho ordenou afortificação da cidade e construção do castelo que ainda hoje pode ser admirado. A posse de Silves foi efémera já que em 1190 Abu Yusuf Ya'qub al-Mansur cercou a cidade de Silves com um exército e com outro atacou Torres Novas, que apenas conseguiu resistir durante dez dias, devido ao rei de Leão e Castela ameaçar de novo o Norte.

Sancho I (pronounced [?s??u]; rarely translated to Sanctius I), nicknamed the Populator (Portugueseo Povoador), second monarch of Portugal, was born on November 11, 1154 in Coimbra and died on March 26, 1212 in the same city. He was the second but only surviving legitimate son and fourth child of Afonso I Henriques of Portugal by his wife, Maud of Savoy. Sancho succeeded his father in 1185. He used the title King of the Algarve and/or King of Silves between 1189 and 1191

In 1170, Sancho wasknighted by his father, King Afonso I, and from then on he became his second in command, both administratively and militarily. At this time, the independence of Portugal (declared in 1139) was not firmly established. The kings of León and Castile were trying to re-annex the country and the Roman Catholic Church was late in giving its blessing and approval. Due to this situation Afonso I had to search for allies within the Iberian Peninsula. Portugal made an alliance with the Kingdom of Aragon and together they fought Castile and León. To secure the agreement, Infante Sancho of Portugal married, in 1174, Infanta Dulce Berenguer, younger sister of King Alfonso II of Aragon. Aragon was thus the first Iberian kingdom to recognize the independence of Portugal.

With the death of Afonso I in 1185, Sancho I became the second king of Portugal. Coimbra was the centre of his kingdom; Sancho terminated the exhausting and generally pointless wars against his neighbours for control of the Galician borderlands. Instead, he turned all his attentions to the south, towards the Moorish small kingdoms (called taifas) that still thrived. With Crusader help he took Silves in 1191. Silves was an important city of the South, an administrative and commercial town with population estimates around 20,000 people. Sancho ordered the fortification of the city and built a castle which is today an important monument of Portuguese heritage. However, military attention soon had to be turned again to the North, where León and Castile threatened again the Portuguese borders. Silves was again lost to the Moors. It should be noted that the global Muslim population had climbed to about 6 per cent as against the Christian population of 12 per cent by 1200.

Sancho I dedicated much of his reign to political and administrative organization of the new kingdom. He accumulated a national treasure, supported new industries and the middle class of merchants. Moreover, he created several new towns and villages (like Guarda in 1199) and took great care in populating remote areas in the northern Christian regions of Portugal, notably with Flemings and Burgundians – hence the nickname "the Populator".The king was also known for his love of
