Maria el Valiente
Maria "el Valiente" of Portugal (1068-????) was a Portuguese princess who was the daughter of Garcia II of Portugal-Galicia. She married Rodrigo, the son and heir apparent of Alfonso I of Castile.


Maria was the daughter of Garcia II of Portugal, a Catholic monarch from Portugal-Galicia. Maria became known as a diplomat, and when she was sent to ask for trade rights with Castile in 1080 with Prince Rodrigo, Rodrigo made a counter-offer, asking her to marry him. She accepted happily, and the two became married, forging an alliance between Spain and Portugal.
