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.

    • From Wikipedia, "Margaret of L'Aigle" (downloaded 18 August 2018, dvmansur; see link in Sources):

      Margaret of L'Aigle (French: Marguerite de L'Aigle, Spanish: Margarita de L’Aigle) (died 1141) was a Queen consort of Navarre as the first wife to García Ramírez of Navarre.[1] She was the daughter of Gilbert of L'Aigle and Juliana du Perche, daughter of Geoffrey II, Count of Perche.

      Though daughter of the Anglo-Norman lord of L'Aigle, she had connections with the region where she would marry. Her paternal grandmother, Beatrice of Montdidier, was sister of Felicia, Queen of Navarre and Aragon. Her uncle, Rotrou III, Count of Perche, had fled Normandy in despair after the death of his wife, son, and two nephews, Margaret's brothers Engenulf and Gilbert of L'Aigle, in the 1120 wreck of the White Ship. Leaving Margaret's mother Juliana in charge of his County of Perche, Rotrou returned to Aragon, where he had earlier spent time fighting, and while there this second time he arranged Margaret's marriage.

      Margaret was married in 1130 to a royal scion, García Ramírez, lord of Monzón, four years before his accession to the throne of Navarre. He confirmed the rights and privileges of the church of Pamplona on the advice of "uxoris mee Margarite regina" by charter dated 1135.[2] Margaret was to bear García a son and heir, Sancho VI, as well as two daughters who each married kings: the elder, Blanca, born after 1133, married Sancho III of Castile, while the younger, Margaret, named after her mother, married William I of Sicily.

      Garcia's relationship with Margaret was, however, unstable. She supposedly took many lovers and showed favouritism to her French relatives.[3] She bore a second son named Rodrigo, whom her husband refused to recognise as his own.[4] He was never acknowledged as a son by the Navarrese king, even after Margaret's death, and he was widely considered a bastard, though his sister Margaret did not treat him as such. He certainly never behaved as anything other than the son of a king.[5]

      Margaret died disgraced on 25 May 1141. Her husband later remarried, yet her younger daughter remembered her fondly.[6]

      arguerite de l'Aigle, née en 1104, morte le 25 mai 1141. Elle devint reine consort de Navarre par son mariage en 1130.


      Elle est la fille de Gilbert de l'Aigle et de Juliette du Perche. Par sa mère elle est aussi petite-nièce de Félicie de Roucy, reine d'Aragon et de Navarre par son mariage avec Sanche Ier d'Aragon et donc cousine du roi Alphonse le Batailleur. Enfin, son oncle Rotrou III du Perche a de nombreux intérêts en Navarre.

      Marguerite de l'Aigle épouse en 1130 le prince Garcia de Navarre, petit-fils du Cid campeador.

      En 1134, à la mort sans enfants d'Alphonse le Batailleur, Garcia, favorisé par son lignage et ayant l'appui de son oncle par alliance Rotrou III, est élu roi de Navarre, son épouse Marguerite devenant donc la nouvelle reine. L'Aragon désigne toutefois un autre souverain, Ramire II.

      Le couple royal s'efforce par la suite d'affermir la restauration de la Navarre indépendante face à l'émergence de l'État catalano-aragonais.

      Mariage et descendance

      De l'union de Marguerite de l'Aigle et de García V de Navarre naquirent :

      Marguerite de Navarre (†1182), en 1150 elle épousa Guillaume Ier de Sicile.
      Sanche VI de Navarre, qui succéda à son père.
      Blanche de Navarre (1133-1156), en 1151 elle épousa Sanche III de Castille.
      Marguerite fut aussi mère d'un enfant finalement non reconnu par Garcia :

      Rodrigo Garcès (v.1135-v.1177), considéré comme bâtard après la mort de sa mère, qui passa en Sicile sous le nom de Henri de Montescaglioso
