In Portugal D.Afonso V appointed his son and heir, the future D.João II as co-regent, namely during his african and french travels.
The same D.Afonso V succeeded his father as a minor under the regency of his uncle Infante D.Pedro duke of Coimbra.
After acheiving adulthood, he comfirmed his uncle as regent and there was a shared regency for a brief time.
The jealousy of the old duke of Bragança (Coimbra's half-brother) put an end to it, and in a bloody battle, the distinguished regent was slained.
Im not sure Maria I and Pedro III count as co-rulers
In Medieval times Kings sometimes crowned their favourite heir as junior king to make clear who would succeed.
Can anybody provide a list of these, throughout European royal history? Off the top of my head, I can name the following --
Queen Isabel I of Castel and King Fernando V of Aragon
Czar Ivan V and Czar Peter I ("The Great") of Russia
Queen Maria I and King Pedro III of Portugal
King William III (House of Orange) and Queen Maria II (House of Stuart) of Great Britain
