    rei de Portugal (6th, 1279) (Dinis de Bourgogne )

    BIOGRAPHY: At the time of his accession to the throne, Portugal was again in diplomatic confl ict with the Catholic Church. Denis signed a favouring agreement with the pope and swore to p rotect the Church's interests in Portugal. He granted asylum to Templar knights persecuted i n France and created the Order of Christ, designed to be a continuation of the Order of the T emple. With the Reconquista completed and the Portuguese territory freed from Moorish occupat ion, Denis was essentially an administrative king, not a military one. Denis avoided war: h e was a notably peace-loving monarch during a tempestuous time in European history. With Port ugal finally recognized as an independent country by his neighbours, Denis signed a border pa ct with Ferdinand IV of Castile (1297) which has endured to the present day. Denis was know n as the Rei Lavrador (English: Farmer King), because he planted a large pine forest near Lei ria to prevent the soil degradation that threatened the region.
