Wiki: Sancho VII of Navarre Wiki

He was extraordinarily tall. The historian and forensic anthropologist, Luis del Campo, who studied his mortal remains, affirms that he was 2.23 metres (7.3 feet) in height.

According to Alberic de Trois-Fontaines, Sancho left a library of 1.7 million books. The cultural contacts with the Muslim Kingdoms that he visited and battled with, his friendship with his brother in Law Richard the Lionheart and his sister Blanca's Court of Troyes, at the time the most refined in Europe, must have left an important influence on the King's personal intellect. The kingdom he left, with a wealthy treasury and improved communications, was in his day one of the most advanced in human rights, and its Jewish Community enjoyed the best standing in Christian Europe.

With his death, the rule of Navarre passed out of Navarran hands, to Theobald I, a Frenchman.  -30-
