Abstract

During the Middle Ages, Kings and Queens from the different Kingdoms that conformed the Iberian Peninsula political geography protected some sites and their buildings because of their implications in the Royal ceremonial. In our session we will deal with the Queen and King’s presence in the Romanesque wall paintings of the Royal pantheon in San Isidoro de León, the Royal protection around the great reliquary of the Cámara Santa in Oviedo Cathedral and its artistic implications and the interesting female patronage of Aragón Queens on the Royal Monastery of Sigena in Zaragoza, the Pantheon of the ‘Infantas’ of Aragón.
