    Peter was the el­dest son of James I of Aragon and his sec­ond wife Vi­olant of Hun­gary. Among (op­por­tunis­tic) be­trothals of his youth, he was be­trothed to Eu­doxia Laska­rina, the youngest daugh­ter of Em­peror Theodoros II of Nicaea, in or be­fore 1260. This con­tract was dis­solved, how­ever, after Eu­doxia's brother lost the im­pe­r­ial throne in 1261, and Eu­doxia was in­stead mar­ried to the Count of Tenda. On 13 June 1262, Peter mar­ried Con­stance, daugh­ter and heiress of Man­fred of Sicily. Dur­ing his youth and early adult­hood, Peter gained a great deal of mil­i­tary ex­pe­ri­ence in his fa­ther's wars of the Re­con­quista against the Moors. On James I's death in 1276, the lands of the Crown of Aragon were di­vided amongst his two sons. The King­dom of Aragon, the King­dom of Va­len­cia and the Cata­lan coun­ties went to Peter III as being the el­dest son; while the King­dom of Ma­jorca (ac­tual Balearic Is­lands) and the Cata­lan coun­ties be­yond the Pyre­nees of...

    Peter's first act as king was to com­plete the paci­fi­ca­tion of his Va­len­cian ter­ri­tory, an ac­tion which had been un­der­way be­fore his fa­ther's death. How­ever, a re­volt soon broke out in Cat­alo­nia, led by the vis­count of Car­dona and abet­ted by Roger-Bernard III of Foix, Arnold Roger I of Pal­lars Sobirà, and Er­men­gol X of Urgell. The rebels had de­vel­oped a ha­tred for Peter as a re­sult of the sever­ity of his deal­ings with them dur­ing the reign of his fa­ther. Now they op­posed him for not sum­mon­ing the Cata­lan corts (Royal Courts), and con­firm­ing its priv­i­leges after his as­cen­sion to the throne. At the same time, a suc­ces­sion cri­sis con­tin­ued in the County of Urgell. When Count Álvaro died in 1268, the fam­i­lies of his two wives, Con­stance, a daugh­ter of Pedro Mon­cada of Béarn, and Ce­cilia, a daugh­ter of Roger-Bernard II of Foix, began a long fight over the in­her­i­tance of his county. Mean­while, a good por­tion of the county had been r...


    When Muham­mad I al-Mus­tan­sir, the Haf­sid Emir of Tunisia who had put him­self under James the Con­queror, died in 1277, Tunisia threw off the yoke of Aragonese suzerainty. Peter first sent an ex­pe­di­tion to Tunis in 1280 under Con­rad de Llansa de­signed to re-es­tab­lish his suzerainty. In 1281, he him­self pre­pared to lead a fleet of 140 ships with 15,000 men to in­vade Tunisia on be­half of the gov­er­nor of Con­stan­tine. The fleet landed at Al­coyll (now Collo, Al­ge­ria) in 1282....


    In 1266, the French Charles I of Anjou, king of Naples with the ap­proval of Pope Clement IV, in­vaded the King­dom of Sicily, gov­erned by the house of Ho­hen­staufen, which was the house of Peter III's wife, Con­stance of Sicily, old­est daugh­ter of Man­fred I of Sicily and right­ful heir to the throne of Sicily after the deaths of her fa­ther and brother Con­radin fight­ing against Charles' in­vad­ing forces (Man­fred died at the bat­tle of Ben­evento in 1266 and her brother Con­radin die...

    Peter was deal­ing with do­mes­tic un­rest at the time when the French were prepar­ing an in­va­sion of Aragon. He took Al­bar­racín from the re­bel­lious noble Juan Núñez de Lara, he re­newed the al­liance with San­cho IV of Castile, and he at­tacked Tudela in an at­tempt to pre­vent Philip the Fair, the king of Navarre and the son of the French king Philip III the Bold, from in­vad­ing on that front. Peter held meet­ings of the cortes at Tar­rag­ona and Zaragoza in 1283. He was forced to grant the Priv­i­le­gio General to the newly formed Union of Aragon. Also in 1283, Peter's brother James II of Ma­jorca joined the French and recog­nised their suzerainty over Mont­pel­lier. This gave the French free pas­sage into Cat­alo­nia through Rous­sil­lon as well as ac­cess to the Balearic Is­lands. In Oc­to­ber, Peter began prepar­ing the de­fences of Cat­alo­nia. In 1284, Pope Mar­tin IV granted the King­dom of Aragon to Charles, Count of Val­ois, an­other son of the French king and grea...

    In 1284, the first French armies under King Philip and Count Charles en­tered Rous­sil­lon. They in­cluded 16,000 cav­alry, 17,000 cross­bow­men, and 100,000 in­fantry, along with 100 ships in south French ports. Though the French had James's sup­port, the local pop­u­lace rose against them. The city of Elne was valiantly de­fended by the so-called bâtard de Roussillon ("bas­tard of Rous­sil­lon"), the il­le­git­i­mate son of Nuño Sánchez, late count of Rous­sil­lon (1212–1242). Even­tu­ally he was over­come and the cathe­dral was burnt; the royal forces pro­gressed. In 1285, Philip en­trenched him­self be­fore Girona in an at­tempt to be­siege it. The re­sis­tance was strong, but the city was taken. Charles was crowned there, but with­out an ac­tual crown. The French soon ex­pe­ri­enced a re­ver­sal, how­ever, at the hands of Roger de Lau­ria, back from the Ital­ian the­atre of the drawn-out con­flict. The French fleet was de­feated and de­stroyed at the Bat­tle of Les Formigues on...

    Peter died from un­known causes at Vi­lafranca del Penedès on 11 No­vem­ber 1285, just one month after his royal foe Philip III of France, and was buried in the Monastery of Santes Creus. His deathbed ab­so­lu­tion oc­curred after he de­clared that his con­quests had been in the name of his fa­mil­ial claims and never against the claims of the church. His re­mains are en­tombed in a por­phyrysar­coph­a­gus at the monastery. Like his fa­ther, Peter di­vided his king­doms be­tween his sons. He left Aragon to his el­dest son, Al­fonso, and Sicily to his sec­ond son, James. Peter's third son, Fred­er­ick, in suc­ces­sion to his brother James, be­came re­gent of Sicily and in due course its king. Peter did not pro­vide for his il­le­git­i­mate youngest son and name­sake, Peter (1275 – 25 Au­gust 1296), who mar­ried Con­stança Mendes da Silva, daugh­ter of Soeiro Mendes Pe­tite, gov­er­nor of San­tarémin Por­tu­gal. This Peter left Spain for Por­tu­gal with his half-sis­ter Eliz­a­beth. P...
