Peter III (Peter the Great), 1239?–1285, king of AragOn and count of Barcelona (1276–85) and king of Sicily (1282–85); son and successor of James I. In 1280 he established Aragonese influence on the northern shores of Africa.
Peter's Sicilian venture was unpopular with the Aragonese nobility and towns, and he was compelled to grant them wide privileges to quell their opposition.
Peter was succeeded in AragOn by his eldest son, Alfonso III, and in Sicily by his second son, James (later James II of AragOn).

 Popular saints in Portugal: Santa Isabela of Portugal
Elizabeth, or Isabel, daughter of King Peter III of Aragon, was named after her great-aunt, Elizabeth of Hungary, but she is known in Portugal by the Spanish form of that name, Isabela.
The Coimbra operation for her canonization, led by Antonio Homen, that took the lives of so many witnesses and promoters, was very efficient for the glory of Isabel and a disaster for the people of Esther.
What is brought to light does not deny that she must have participated in one way or another in some religious, mystical, or philosophical movement of her time, especially since she descended from the aristocracy of Aragon (in which the king and the Jews were connected through common interests).
