Teresa Ans%C3%BArez
Teresa's son Ramiro III of León

Teresa Ansúrez (died in 997) was the Queen consort of King Sancho I of León, and because of that, she is also known as Teresa of Leon. She was regent of her son in 975-979.


Teresa was a daughter of nobleman Ansur Fernández and Gontroda Nuñez and sister of Fernando Ansúrez II.[1] She married Sancho I of León and by him had children, King Ramiro III of León[2] and Urraca Sánchez.


Teresa was put in a convent on her husband's death,[3] and her son placed under the regency of her sister-in-law, Elvira Ramírez. However, when a coalition formed by the latter suffered a military defeat at Gormaz in 975, Elvira was forced to step away from her active role in the government, and Teresa assumed the regency until her son achieved his majority.[2]
