Welcome to fashiononline, the tumblr version of my fashion history blog ;) Here you will find a little bit of everything about the history of fashion, art, and iconic personalities of all time.

Unlike the fashiononline in portuguese, here I will post more pictures and less text. I hope you enjoy my private time machine

    I’m so Plantagenet these days… I want to make a fanart of Alice Perrers as Lady of the Sun, and I’m searching a lot to can make her the most accurated is possible… And I’m not a huge fan of nebulas, but I’m very tempted to make one in her outfit! ;)

    Blanche of Castile (1188 – 1252)  was a Queen consort of France as the wife of Louis VIII. She acted as regent twice during the reign of her son, Louis IX.

    She was born in Palencia, Spain, 1188, the third daughter of Alfonso VIII, king of Castile, and Eleanor of England. Eleanor was a daughter of Henry II of England and Eleanor of Aquitaine.

    Eleanor of Aquitaine, traveled to Castile to look over her two granddaughters, daughters of Eleanor of England and King Alfonso VIII. She decided that the younger, Blanche, was more suited for the marriage than the year-older Urraca. Eleanor of Aquitaine returned with the 12-year-old Blanche, who was married to the 13-year-old Louis.

    Accounts of the time indicate that Blanche loved her husband. She delivered twelve children, five of whom lived to adulthood.

    In 1223, Philip died, and Louis and Blanche were crowned. Louis went to southern France as part of the first Albigensian crusade, to suppress the Cathari, a heretical sect that had become popular in that area. Louis died of dysentery which he contracted on the trip back. His last order was to appoint Blanche of Castile as the guardian of Louis IX, their remaining children, and “the kingdom.”

    When Louis and his three brothers all went on crusade to the Holy Land, Louis selected his mother, at age 60, to be regent. The crusade went badly: Robert of Artois was killed, King Louis captured, and his very pregnant Queen Marguerite and, then, her child, had to seek safety in Damietta and Acre. Louis raised his own ransom, and decided to send his surviving two brothers home while remaining in the Holy Land.

    Blanche of Castile died in November, 1252, with Louis and Marguerite still in the Holy Land, not to return until 1254. Louis never accepted Marguerite as the strong advisor his mother had been, despite Marguerite’s efforts in that direction.
