Zaida (Isabella) of DENIA

     aka Zayda de SEVILLA; christened Elisabet; (oldest source shows her as daughter-in-law, not niece, of Abenabeth)

    Note: Zaida is an important 'gateway' to show European royalty as descended from Muhammed. She was the concubine of King Alfonso VI and mother of his only son (who died heirless), and probably mother of the two daughters shown here (though confusion arises because Alfonso's fourth wife had the same Christian name as was given to Zaida). However, nothing certain is known of her ancestry: showing the Emir of Seville as her father seems to be an old error.

     Born:  Alicante, Spain    Died:  1107
