Christina of Norway. History.

Hello everyone,
Do you know the story of Christina of Norway?
She was the daughter of Hakon IV and his wife Margrete Skuledotter.  She was born in Bergen in 1234 and she married Philip, brother of Alfonso X of Castile, called "El sabio". She lived in Castile until her death four years later.
Christina and more than 100 people left Norway in the summer of 1257, after crossing the North Sea, she crossed the English Channel to Normandy. Then she continued her journey across France on horseback to Catalonia. There she met King Jame I, whose daughter was married Alfonso X of Castile.

Look at this map and think about the route she took.





























Listen to this song called "El lamento de kristina".



Do you know why she was sad and died after four years? Who did she marry? Why?
