He ruled Sicily jointly with Mary until her death in 1402. At the time, he repudiated the Treaty of 1372 and ruled Sicily alone. After his death in 1409 in Cagliari, Sardinia, his father, Martin I of Aragon, ruled Sicily as Martin II. Martin the Younger married secondly Blanche of Navarre, who was heiress of the Evreux family and the future queen of Navarre. Any offpring of his two marriages did not survive childhood, thus the only issue he left was a bastard son, Fadrique de Luna, whom the grandfather tried to make the successor in the Aragonese Empire. But he did not obtain sufficient support and, when he presented his claim, was denied by the Pact of Caspe. Martin the Younger led the conquest troops in Sardinia and 1409 in Sanluri won decisively the ruler of Arborea just before his own death.
