Richeza of Poland

Richeza of Poland (c. 1140 – June 16, 1185), was the daughter of King Wladislaus II the Exile of Poland, and Agnes of Babenberg. She accompanied her father into exile in 1146. Her name is also spelled Ryksa, Rixa, and Riquilda.

She married King Alfonso VII of Castile and León in 1152. Their only surviving child, Infanta Sancha of Castile, was born 1155. In Spain she was known as "Queen Riquilda".

When Alphonso died in 1157, Richeza remarried to Ramon Berenguer II, Count of Provence, in 1162. Their daughter was Douce (died 1172). Ramon Berengar died in 1166, and she remarried once more to Count Raymond V of Toulouse.

Her daughter, Sancha of Castile, married King Alfonso II of Aragon in 1174. Sancha's daughter, Eleanor married Count Raymond VI of Toulouse in 1202.
