  • Title: Images of Royal and Aristocratic Burial in Northern Spain, c. 950- c. 1250 [the author points out that the most successful efforts toward "memoria" were made by a united and strong royal couple and put into the hands of a female foundation; the two outstanding examples of royal pantheons are San Isidoro at León (built by King Fernando I and Queen Sancha with the subsequent support of their daughter Urraca) and Las Huelgas (built by King Alfonso VIII and Queen Eleanor)].
