Alphonso Iii


ALPHONSO III. of Aragon (1285-1291), the insignificant son of the notable Peter III., succeeded to the Spanish and Provencal possessions of his father, but his short reign did not give him time even to marry. His inability to resist the demands of his nobles and his recognition of their right to rebel in the articles called the Union helped to make anarchy permanent in Aragon.
