We conducted an X-Ray Fluorescence investigation on bone fragments belonging to King Peter III of Aragon and Queen Blanche of Anjou. The spectroscopic analysis was carried out in selected points of the bone fragments. Several transitional elements normally unexpected in the bone composition have been found at varying level of concentration. The presence of these elements was interpreted in relation to chemical treatments for mummification of bodies as well as to dietary habits, including tools used for cooking and for the consumption of food.
