King Afonso IV (b.1291-d.1357) (1325-1357)
King Dinis I, 6th King of Portugal. 
He was known as "the Farmer King" and "the Poet King". He was the eldest son of King Afonso III of Portugal by his second wife, Beatrice of Castile, and grandson of king Alfonso X of Castile (known as "the Wise").
His marriage to Elizabeth of Aragon, who was later canonized as a saint of the Roman Catholic Church, was arranged in 1281 when she was 10 years old.
King Dinis I ordered the planting of a large pine forest (that still exists today) near Leiria to prevent soil degradation that threatened the region and as a source of raw materials for the construction of the royal ships. He was also known as "The Farmer King".
