Dulce of Aragon[1] or of Barcelona (1160–1198) was the wife of King Sancho I of Portugal. She was the eldest daughter of Ramon Berenguer IV, Count of Barcelona and his wife, Queen Petronila of Aragon.

Queen of Portugal

Dulce was married to Prince Sancho in 1174, an event that renewed the alliance between Portugal and her native Aragon. The union was arranged by her brother, King Alfonso II of Aragon. With her husband's ascent to the throne in 1185, she became Queen consort.
