Beatrice of Coimbra

Infanta Beatrice of Coimbra (1435–1462) was the 5th child of Infante Peter, Duke of Coimbra, and Isabella of Aragon, Countess of Urgell.

After the battle of Alfarrobeira, where her father's army was defeated by the Portuguese royal army, she left the country and took refuge in Burgundy, under her aunt’s protection: Isabella of Portugal was married to Duke Philip III the Good.

In 1453, Beatrice married Adolph of Cleves, Lord of Ravenstein, nephew of the Duke Philip III the Good. They had issue:

  • Philip of Cleves (1456-1528)
  • Louise (1457-1458)

She died in Bruges of suspected poisoning in 1462.
