Frederick II’s mother, Constance of Hauteville, was celebrated by Dante as “the great Costanza,who from the Swabians’ second gust engenderedthe one who was their third and final power”.Dante underlined her resoluteness on the political scene but also her refinement. She was Queen of Sicily from 1194 to 1198. However Costanza was also the name of the first Frederick’s wife: she wasthe eldest daughter of Alfonso II of Aragon andthe first wife of Emperor Frederick II. In 1209, on the occasion of the marriage, she was crowned “Queen of Sicily”. Therefore, our beer Costanza was created to celebrate the two Queens.
