Todd A. Farmerie remarked:
> Zaida was named Isabel at the time of her baptism. Jimena is a distinct
mistress of the kind, while Maria has no historical >basis whatsoever (I
have no idea where Stuart got this name, but
> there was no Maria among Alfonso's known women).
The "Cronica Geral de Espanha de 1344"_critical edition of the portuguese
text by Luis Filipe Lindley_ says that Alfonso VI married to Zaida after she
was baptized and has changed her name to Maria:
"...E el rey lhe disse que lhe cõviinha de se tornar cristãa e ella disse
que o faria muy de grado... E elle fezea logo cristãa e casou com ella..".
