Richard I of England 'the Lionheart' wife Berengaria of Navarre was born circa 1165 the eldest daughter of Sancho VI 'the Wise' King of Navarre and Sancha of Castile. She had 3 brothers, Sancho (the future King Sancho VII of Navarre), Ferdinand and Ramiro, Bishop of Pamplona and two sisters Constance and Blanche of Navarre, who married Count Theobald III of Champagne.

Berengaria was described as having dark hair and eyes, "petite, and a fine musician... in all things, a suitable consort for a king". Ambroise, a contemporary Norman minstrel, described her as "elegant and prudent".

While our doors are temporarily closed at the Berengaria Art & Sculpture Park the Gallery remains open online, bringing the nation's art to the nation's homes



Berengaria envision a place unlike any other: where artists may get fresh perspectives on their work during informal conversation; where a visitor may learn the context for an artwork directly from its creator; and where there are numerous opportunities for these kinds of spontaneous connections to happen in a welcoming and wide-open environment. 
The spark of these connections fosters deep engagement in our programs by artists and audiences alike – and adds to the vibrancy and quality of life of surrounding communities.
The Berengaria Interactions among artist, artwork, and audience transforms into a greater awareness of the world we live in, build an understanding for diverse perspectives, and inspire creativity.
