Statue of Infanta Christina

    Christina of Norway (b. Bergen, Norway, 1234 – d. 1262, Burgos, Spain) was betrothed to Philip, brother of Alfonso X of Castile, as part of an alliance. They married in 1258, and she lived in Castile until her death four years later. She wanted to have a church dedicated to St. Olaf built in Castile. 750 years later, a simple pre-Roman church was built and dedicated in Spain.
