Christina of Norway (; 1234 – 1262) was the daughter of Håkon IV and his wife, Margrete Skuledotter. She was born in Bergen. As part of an alliance she was betrothed to Philip, brother of Alfonso X of Castile. They married in 1258, and she lived in Castile until her death four years later. Tradition states that Christina had desired for a church be built in Castile and that it be dedicated to St Olaf. 750 years later, "a modernized version of [a] simple pre-Roman church" was built and dedicated in Covarrubias, Spain.[1]
