So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

  • Notes 
    • Teresa Fernández de Traba (died 6 February 1180, León) was the queen consort of León (1178–1180) during the reign of Ferdinand II.

      Teresa was the illegitimate daughter of Count Fernando Pérez de Traba, Lord of Trastamara and his mistress, Theresa, Countess of Portugal. She was already married to Count Nuño Pérez de Lara in 1152 when both ceded Castronuño to its inhabitants and established its borders, maintaining certain rights over the village after King Alfonso VII of León and Castile donated it in 1156 or 1157 to the Knights Hospitaller.[1] On 29 January 1160 Teresa and husband Nuño founded the Cistercian convent of Santa María at Perales,[2] donating to Ozenda, the first abbess, all their properties in Perales and Zorita. In 1174, they gave the bishop of Burgos the village of Barchilona in exchange for all the rights and properties of the hospital in Puente de Fitero which they had founded and donated to the Knights Hospitaller. Following the death of Nuño in 1177, Teresa went to the Leonese court,[3] and there, before 7 October 1178, she married King Ferdinand II of León (1137–1188). Thanks to this marriage, her children lived at the court and boasted of being the offspring of a Queen of León as attested by a charter where her son Álvaro making a donation to the Monastery of Sobrado called himself filius comitis domni Nunonis et regine domne Tarasie.

      She died as a result of childbirth two years later, on 6 February 1180 and was buried at the Royal Pantheon in the Basilica of San Isidoro in León.[3] Her remains were placed in a stone coffin the cover of which bore a half-length effigy of the late queen wearing a dress with tight gem-studded cuffs and neckline. Her hair was loose and a royal crown was placed around her
