Mary of Sicily

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Maria (* 1362 ; † May 25, 1401 in Lentini ), Queen of Sicily , Duchess of Athens and Neopatria , was the daughter and heiress of King Friedrich III. the simple-minded . Since she was still very young when her father died in 1377, she was under the reign of four noble families who called themselves vicars (Consiglio dei quattro Vicari council of four deputies).

In 1390 Maria was brought to Aragón , where she married Martin the Younger , the grandson of John II of Aragón . In 1392 Martin and Maria returned to Sicily with military support, defeated the opposing barons, and then ruled together until Maria's death in 1401. Martin now invoked the treaty of 1372 and ruled the country alone.
