Well, as you can read here:
http://www.geocities.com/edgarbook/names/a/alfonso.html
Alfons is a Spanish name that was very popular within Spanish Royalty (and also Italy, that was governed for much of its territory during long by the Spanish monarchy)
I will underline two:
Alfons I the Battler of Aragon, was the mos similar thing we can think of a fighter King such Aragorn. Was beloved by his subdits and managed to unite a large territory, not only by the arms but also by marriage of his sons and daughters... and he was extremely feared in battle!

Alfons X from Castilla, the other important Kingdom in which Spain was divided after the Arabian invasion, and that later with Aragon rejoined in the current Spanish Kingdom. Alfons X had some important militar successes as well. Even before being a King, he helped the neighbouring King of Aragon, James I (Jaime I) to conquer the south east of Spain, and they agreed to share the territories.
But Alfons X, known as the Wise (el Sabio) is specially known for his advance in the arts and the sciences. Inhis capital of Toledo, not only christian were welcomed but also Jewish and Muslems that respected the authority of the King of Castilla. That attracted many artists and scintists, men of peace, to Toledo, where many of the wisdom of the Greeks and Egyptians, that had been lost in the European Middle Ages, was recovered by this muslems, jewish and christainas working together to translate to each other languages the wisdom of the time, and the lost scripts of Aristotles that wer kept by the Arabs.
