Maria of Sicily (d. 1402)

Queen of Sicily. Name variations: Mary of Sicily. Reigned from 1377 to 1402 (some sources cite 1401); died in 1402; daughter of Frederick III the Simple, king of Sicily (r. 1355–1377) and Constance of Aragon (c. 1350–?); married Martin I the Younger, king of Sicily (r. 1592–1622).

Following the death of her father Frederick III the Simple, king of Sicily, in 1377, Maria of Sicily came to the throne in name only. In 1390, she was abducted from her castle and taken to Barcelona to marry her cousin, the son of Martin I the Humane, king of Aragon. In 1392, her husband became Martin I the Younger, king of Sicily. Maria of Sicily died the same year as her only son, in 1402. Two years later, Martin I married Blanche of Navarre .

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
