Berengaria (Castilian: Berenguela) (1179 or 1180 – 8 November 1246) was Queen of Castile in 1217 and Queen consort of León from 1197 to 1204. As the eldest child of Alfonso VIII of Castile, she was a sought after bride. She served as regent for her younger brother in Castile until she succeeded him on his untimely death. Within months, she turned Castile over to her son, Ferdinand. However, she remained one of his closest advisors, guiding policy and negotiating on his behalf for the rest of her life.
