... Constance and Constantia were both common amongst the women of the Imperial families of Rome: the name was even adopted in Greece, an event of rare occurrence with Latin names, the general practice being the reverse...
    In England, Spain (Constanza), Germany, and Italy, Constance and Constantia have been royal names.  The wife of Robert the Pious was a Constance, and there was Constance, Queen of the Two Sicilies, who married Henry, the son of the Emperor Frederick I., and who was crowned with her husband at Rome in 1190.  This Constance became the mother of Ferdinand II. and through him introduced the name into Germany. 
    Here in England we all know Constance of Brittany, the wife of Geoffrey Plantagenet and mother of the poor young Prince whose sole offence was that of being the rightful heir to the English throne, at a time when an unscrupulous uncle wanted to secure it to himself... (Girls' Christian Names, Swan, 1905)
