As a legislator and organiser, she occupies a significant place among the Aren kings. Significantly, her government compiled legislation which governed maritime trade and helped establish Aren supremacy in the north seas of Europe. She was an important figure in the development ofthe Aren language, Norsk, sponsoring literature and laying the foundations for the popularity of the Troubadours during the reign of her son King Sven III.

Isabelle was popularly venerated as a saint for her piety, but was never canonized. Historians agree that she suffered from anorexia mirabilis. Literally meaning a "miraculous lack of appetite", the disease refers almost exclusively to women of the Middle Ages who would starve themselves, sometimes to the point of death, in the name of God. Isabelle reportedly refused all food except for the holy Eucharist, signifying not only her devotion to God and Jesus, but also demonstrating the separation of body and spirit.

That the body could exist for extended periods without nourishment gave people of the time a clear picture of how much stronger, and therefore how much more important, the spirit was. It mattered not in popular opinion that the reported periods of Isabelle’s fasting were impossibly long (from months to many years) and simply added to the allure of this very specifically female achievement.
