    Constance, Queen of Sicily


      The history of Sicily has seen Sicily usually controlled by greater powers—Roman, Vandal, Byzantine, Islamic, Norman, Hohenstaufen, Catalan, Spaniard—but also experiencing short periods of independence, as under the Greeks and later as the Emirate then Kingdom of Sicily. Although today part of the Republic of Italy, it has its own distinct culture.

      Constance (2 Nov 1154–27 Nov 1198) was heiress of the Norman kings of Sicily and the wife of Henry VI, Holy Roman Emperor. She was Queen of Sicily in 1194-1198, jointly with her husband, and with her infant son Frederick II. In 1194 she gave birth to Frederick. Constance was 40 and she knew that many would question whether the child was really hers. Thus she had the baby in a pavilion tent in the market square of the town & invited the town matrons to witness the birth. - picture probably 13th?
