The conclusion asks whether anything, changed for royal daughters when one of them, Queen Urraca, became queen in her own right in 1109, and, to what extent did these women share features with contemporary royal women elsewhere in Europe. Even when later medieval royal daughters across the Iberian kingdoms married, they retained something of the charism of rulership possessed by their female ancestors, and the notion of a royal daughter committed to a religious life persisted. The conclusion also considers contemporary royal women outside the Iberian peninsula to argue there were parallels to ideas about royalty, femaleness and sacrality found elsewhere at the same time in Europe, in Anglo-Saxon England and especially in Ottonian Germany, where we find both typological similarities and direct connections with royal daughters in León-Castilla.
