This is a list of consorts of the Kingdom of Sardinia and sometimes Corsica. Although Aragon and Spain had no Salic law restricting female from succeeding; the House of Savoy operated under the Salic law. The only Queen regnant was Joanna the Mad, but there were no male consorts of Sardinia. Many Kings of Aragon had more than one wife; they may have divorced their wife or she might have died. Morganatic marriages are not counted.

Queen consort of Sardinia and Corsica[edit]

House of Aragon, 1297–1410[edit]

King James II of Aragon received royal investiture from Pope Boniface VIII in 1297 as Rex Sardiniae et Corsicae. The Aragonese did not take actual possession of the isle until 1323, after a victorious military campaign against the Pisans.

Consorts of Claimants against John II, 1462–1472[edit]

During the War against John II, there were three who claimed his throne, though this never included the Kingdom of Valencia. One of the three was Peter V of Aragon who remained a bachelor. The others Henry IV of Castile and René of Anjou had wives during their reign as pretenders. The wive of Henry IV was Joan of Portugal, a Portuguese infanta daughter of King Edward of Portugal and his wife Eleanor of Aragon. The first wive of Rene died prior to 1462; his second wife was Jeanne de Laval, a French noblewoman and daughter Guy XIV de Laval, Count of Laval and Isabella of Brittany.
