Commentary: Snow 2007: "The popular tale of the Emperor's wife (retold in CSM 5) is the centerpiece of this study. A 1513 version, like Alfonso's, calls the Empress Beatriz, but there are a great number of divergences which make a direct filiation hard to prove. M. does believe that the Beatriz is likely not a tribute to Alfonso's mother (in CSM 5), but rather a pointer tto Beatriz of Borgoña, a relative of Alfonso's and wife to the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa."
