INTRODUCTION

 

 

Family reconstruction of the Christian nobility in the Iberian peninsula during the early medieval period is particularly difficult.  The factors which contribute to the problems include lack of continuity in property holdings, duplication of names, non-inheritability of titles, the nature of the inheritance laws, and the type of primary sources which are available.  Each of these factors will be considered in turn below. 

 

Dealing first with the changes in property holdings, properties were bought, sold, or reassigned by the king, frequently.  Family patrimony was generally not restricted to a particular area.  Tenencias granted by the king were regularly withdrawn or re-assigned.  Spanish nobles were therefore rarely able to establish regional power-bases or centralised lordships, in contrast particularly to the situation in France.  There are some notable exceptions, for instance the Beni Gómez family (often called Condes de Saldaña), the Menéndez family (who governed large parts of Galicia), the condes en Cea, and the condes en Castilla (whose territory evolved into the kingdom of Castile, see the document CASTILE & LEÓN, COUNTS & KINGS).  In the case of most noble families, however, the absence of a single "home-base" meant that toponymic family names rarely developed, at least before the late 12th century.  The absence of continuity with specific places became particular acute in the late 11th and early 12th centuries, when confiscations and new awards accelerated as a consequence of numerous rebellions against the central royal authority. 

 

Llorente categorises the different types of señorío granted by the monarchs of León/Asturias and Castile[1]

  • behetrías: the most prestigious of the three types, in districts where the land was owned by its natives, the title-holder of the señorío being appointed by the monarch as benefactor or protector of the area while the inhabitants retained ownership of their lands. 
  • solariegos: less prestigious, in unpopulated districts which were settled by incomers called colonos or collazos, the title-holder owning the property of the territory.    
  • dismembraciones: a hybrid form of señorío, in areas already populated by vassals of the crown where the monarch separated out new patrimony and granted it to a new title-holder. 

It should be emphasised that each señorío could occupy a very small area of land, with adjacent señoríos not necessarily being held by the same title-holder.  This resulted in a complex patchwork of señoríos held by different title-holders.  In addition, adjacent señoríos held by the same nobleman may have been of any one of these three types. 

 

Secondly, concerning the Spanish naming system, at first sight it would seem that the use of patronymics, applied regularly and with consistency well into the 14th century, should compensate for the absence of toponymics.  At least they mean that an individual's father's name can be deduced.  However, the number of different names used is limited.  There are therefore frequent duplications of name combinations.  Given a series of references, for instance, to "Rodrigo Pérez" over an extended time-frame, it is difficult to decide how many different individuals are referred to and the breakpoints where references to one individual stop and another start.  This effect is magnified over the generations.  In the case of "Rodrigo Pérez", we know that Rodrigo's father was named Pedro, but there is no way of deciding which of the many individuals named Pedro this might be. 

 

Thirdly in relation to the non-inheritability of titles, the title "conde" was granted by the king to an individual.  It was not inheritable and was unconnected with any territorial holding.  In addition, it could just as easily be awarded to a junior member of a family as to a first-born son.  Individuals derived their right to govern a particular area not from their comital title but from the royal grant of a tenencia of the particular castle, town or location.  In practice, the more important office-holders in the royal palace were generally appointed "conde", as were the holders of major accumulations of properties.  During the first two centuries of the existence of the kingdom of Asturias, the surviving sources show only a handful of individuals with the title "conde".  Gonzalo Martínez Díez has identified only six references to "condes" in the authentic primary source documentation during the period 711-910: the condes en Castilla (see CASTILE & LEÓN, COUNTS & KINGS), conde Rodrigo and his son Diego Rodríguez (see below in the present document), Gonzalo Téllez, Munio Núñez (see below), Gonzalo Fernández, and Vela Jiménez as conde de Álava (see the document NAVARRE NOBILITY)[2]

 

Fourthly, the Spanish inheritance laws provided for equal treatment between male and female heirs.  In early medieval times, the concept of "family" for the Spanish nobility included relatives in the female line, which meant that agnatic noble dynasties developed much later in Spain than in other western European countries.  This represents a further obstacle to successful family reconstitution, and adds confusion in the presentation of results.  As will be seen below, an attempt has been made in some cases to collect sub-groups related through the female line with the main agnatic line families. 

 

Lastly, the amount of information on family relationships included in available sources is limited.  Charters which record donations to religious establishments, or property transfers between individuals, are numerous.  In a limited number of cases, particularly relating to family property transfers, many individuals are named and some relationships specified.  However, the vast majority of references to nobles are found in the long lists of subscribers whose names are set out at the end of these documents.  Recording and sorting this information in spreadsheet format enables more connections to be identified than is possible by using manual methods.  However, this is a time-consuming process and positive results are not guaranteed.  Only a limited number of charter collections have been analysed fully during the course of preparing the present document.  Many of the reconstructions shown below have been compiled from secondary sources, although such information has only been included when those sources cite primary source references.  As further primary source cartularies are analysed, later versions of the present document will identify and explain the basis for speculative relationships. 

 

An attempt has been made in the current version of this document to categorise the noble families by geographical area.  It is relatively straight-forward to identity the place from which the families originated.  However, with the multiplicity of land grants, as noted above, the centre of activity of a family, or of different branches of the same family, frequently changed.  There is inevitably, therefore, a degree of inaccuracy in such categorisation. 

 

The citations marked “Regestalia” in the end-notes are taken from extracts of cartularies between 711 and 1065, translated into Spanish, which appeared on the website “Proyecto Regestalia” which was presented by the Universidad de Alcalá[3].  This source did not include the names of subscribers to the charters in question.  Unfortunately this data collection no longer appears to be available on-line[4]

a)         GONZALO Peláez (-in Portugal Mar 1138, bur Oviedo).  “Mummadonna cognomento Maior Gunsalviz” donated the monastery of San Pedro de Teverga to Oviedo, “iure perhenni ut ego et vir meus Pelagius Pelagiz et prosapia nostra apud Deum mereamur invenire mercedem copiosam”, by charter dated 20 Feb 1097, confirmed by “...Gundissalvus Pelagiz et eius soror Eldoncia...[98].  Queen Urraca appointed him governor of Asturias de Oviedo from [1110/13][99].  Queen Urraca granted “rengalengo...in Uilla Muza...in ripa de Aradoii et Uillazan et Uilar” to “fideli meo Gonsaluo Pelagii et uxori tue Maiori Moniz” by charter dated 18 Nov 1118[100].  The dating clause of a charter dated 1125, under which "Maior Ruderici comitissa comitis Ruderici et comitisse Tharasie filia" donated half of the monastery of Santa María de Feleyta and other churches to Sahagún monastery, records “...Comite Domno Ruderico in Campos et in Asturiis Sancte Juliane, Gunzalvo Pelayz in Asturiis Oveti...[101].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "…Count Gonzalo Peláez and Pedro Peláez de Valderas…" swore allegiance to Alfonso VII King of Castile after his accession in 1126, specifying that Gonzalo Peláez was "lord of the region of Asturias"[102].  Alférez of Alfonso VII King of Castile 22 Nov 1131 to 8 Mar 1132[103].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "the Asturian Count Gonzalo Peláez...[and] his kinsman Rodrigo Gómez" rebelled in 1132, that Gonzalo Peláez fled to Asturias and was besieged in Tudela which he surrendered, but that he continued the rebellion in Proaza, Buanga and Alba de Quirós[104].  If the speculated parentage of Gonzalo Peláez´s mother, Muniadomna [Mayor] González, is correct as discussed above, Rodrigo Gómez would have been the first cousin of Gonzalo Pérez.  His property was redistributed in Jul 1135[105].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted various properties, which had belonged to “Gonzaluo Pelaiez”, to "comiti Roderico Gonzaluez et uxori tue comittisse Stephanie Armengol et…comiti Roderici Martinez et uxori tue comitisse Urraca" by charter dated Jul 1135[106].  Gonzalo Peláez must have been reconciled with the king soon afterwards as shown by the following document: "...Comes Gunzalviz Pelaiz..." subscribed the charter dated 1136 which records the settlement of a dispute between Sahagún and “Maria Gomez et filios suos super villa Vincentii” before King Alfonso VII[107].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "having made peace with the king twice, Count Gonzalo lied and rebelled", dated to [1137] from the context of the passage, and that “Pedro Alfonso...captured Count Gonzalo and...sent him in chains to the castle of Aguilar” from where he was released, banished and “went to Portugal to King Alfonso...with the intention that from there he could wage war by sea on Asturias and Galicia”, but “the count was seized by a fever and died a foreigner in a foreign land” although “his knights bore away his corpse and buried him in Oviedo[108].  An obituario in Oviedo cathedral records the death in Mar 1138 of “Gundisalvus Pelagii comes[109].  [m MAYOR Muñoz, daughter of ---.  Queen Urraca granted “rengalengo...in Uilla Muza...in ripa de Aradoii et Uillazan et Uilar” to “fideli meo Gonsaluo Pelagii et uxori tue Maiori Moniz” by charter dated 18 Nov 1118[110].  Barton comments that the co-identity with Gonzalo Peláez of Asturias is not certain[111].]

C.      VELA FAMILY

 

 

Two contradictory theories have been proposed about the origin of the family which is usually named, as a convenient reference, “Vela”.  The first is based on a possible descent from a noble family in Álava.  Lucas de Tuy (dated to [1236]) records that "in Castella et in Alaua adolescens...comes generosus...Vela" rebelled against Fernando González Conde de Castilla (dated therefore to some time in the mid-10th century) and sought refuge "ad Sarracenos" after he was expelled from the county[115].  This “comes...Vela” has not been identified in earlier primary sources, but his name suggests a family connection with Vela Jiménez Conde en Álava who lived in the late 9th century (see the document VIZCAYA).  Salazar Acha, in his study of the Vela family in León, doubts the historical accuracy of Tuy´s passage and suggests that Vela was a literary creation, although maybe representing an amalgam of different historical personages, probably inspired by the epic Romanz del Infant García which romanticises the assassination of García Sánchez Conde de Castilla in 1029 by the sons of “Conde Vela”[116].  This assassination is also recorded by Lucas de Tuy who states that "Burgensium...comite...infante Garsia" arrived in León to marry Sancha, sister of Vermudo III King of León, but was killed by "filii Velæ comitis"[117].  Nevertheless, as shown below, a possible family group of seven brothers and sisters (Vela Núñez being the oldest) in the mid-10th century can be reconstructed in León from documentary evidence from the monastery of Sahagún dated from 945 onwards. 

 

The other theory, which has found wide support[118], is that Vela Núñez and his siblings were the children of Nuño Ordóñez, son of Ordoño I King of Asturias.  This is seen by some as a more convincing explanation for the family's influence at the court of León during the second half of the 10th century, and of the royal and nobles marriages made by the daughters of the family. 

 

There is no proof either way.  To the extent that onomastics can play a part in the debate, the absence of the typically Leonese names Alfonso, Ordoño and Ramiro in the Vela family may be significant, as well as the fact that the name Vela is evidently not one which came from the royal family of León.  However, the foundation by the family of the monastery of San Miguel de Barcena indicates a strong connection with Asturias. 

 

At a later date, the family based themselves in Galicia, where the brothers Vela and Rodrigo Ovéquiz supported the deposed García King of Galicia in a rebellion in 1087 which started in Santiago de Compostela and spread to Lugo which the rebels captured.  The documentation of Lugo cathedral specifies that the father of these brothers was conde Oveco Vermúdez of Galicia. 

 

 

 

[Seven possible siblings].  The sibling relationship between the seven persons shown below in square brackets is suggested by Salazar Acha, based on their names of five of them appearing consecutively in the same charters[119].  None of the documentation specifies the family relationship between these individuals, but the resulting reconstruction appears convincing.  Salazar Acha suggests a hypothetical “Nuño Vélaz” as their father, assuming that the supposed oldest brother Vela Núñez (whose seniority in the family is assumed from his being named first in the subscription lists) was named after his paternal grandfather[120].  Salazar Acha further suggests that this hypothetical person may have been the brother of Munio Vélaz Conde de Álava, who is named in the dating clause of a charter of the monastery of Valpuesta dated 18 May 919 “comite Monnio Uigilazi in Alaba[121] (see the document VIZCAYA).  This hypothesis is unsupported by documentary proof but, according to Salazar Acha, echoes curiously a historical legend concerning the family background which was first documented in the 13th century (see the Introduction to the present section)[122].  From a chronological point of view, the hypothesis does not appear consistent with the co-identity of Munio Velaz Conde de Álava with Munio Conde de Vizcaya (suggested in the document VIZCAYA), whose known children would have been many years younger than their supposed first cousins, the children of this hypothetical “Nuño Velaz”. 

1.         [VELA Núñez (-after 25 May [950]).  While there is no certainty about the early life of Vela Núñez, from a chronological point of view he could have been the same person as Vela Conde [in Álava]: Lucas de Tuy (dated to [1236]) records that "in Castella et in Alaua adolescens...comes generosus...Vela" rebelled against Fernando González Conde de Castilla (dated therefore to some time after 932 at the earliest) and sought refuge "ad Sarracenos" after he was expelled from the county[123].  This “comes...Vela” has not been identified in earlier primary sources in Álava, but his name suggests a family connection with Vela Jiménez Conde de Álava (see the document VIZCAYA).  Salazar Acha, in his study of the Vela family in León, doubts the historical accuracy of this passage and suggests that Vela was a literary creation, although maybe representing an amalgam of different historical personages, probably inspired by the epic Romanz del Infant García which recounts the assassination of García Sánchez Conde de Castilla in 1029 by the sons of “Conde Vela”[124].  However, the coincidence of name and chronology suggests that there may be some truth in the Tuy account.  [“Gundissalbo Telliz...cum uxor mea Flamula” donated “serna...in Peternales” to San Pedro de Cardeñas by charter dated 24 Sep 902, subscribed by “...Gutterre, Assuri, Beila Nuniz…[125].  This charter is dated early for it to refer to the same Vela Núñez who is named in the following sources, although there is always the possibility that the document is misdated.  No other reference to an earlier Vela Núñez has been found.]  "Ovecus episcopus" confirmed a donation to Sahagún by charter dated 28 Aug 945, witnessed by "Vigila Nunniz, Suarius Nunniz, Munio Nunniz, Virmudus Nunniz…"[126].  As noted above, the order of the names (uninterrupted by other subscribers) and the common patronymic suggest that these four may have been brothers.  Conde.  A charter at Corias records that “comes Vela et uxor eius comitissa Todildi” reconstructed “monasterium Sancti Micaelis de Varzena”, specifying that they had “iiiior filios Vermutus Velaz, Sancio Velaz, Ouevo Velaz, Xemena Vela[127].  “Ouecco” [bishop] donated property to León Cathedral by charter dated 25 May [950], subscribed by “Ouecco sedis Ouetense episcopus, Vigila Nunniz, Suarius Nunniz, Munius Nunniz, Virimundus Nunniz, Nunnus Nunniz, Aurelius Baroncelli...[128].]  m TOTILDE, daughter of ---.  A charter at Corias records that “comes Vela et uxor eius comitissa Todildi” reconstructed “monasterium Sancti Micaelis de Varzena”, specifying that they had “iiiior filios Vermutus Velaz, Sancio Velaz, Ouevo Velaz, Xemena Vela[129].  Vela & his wife had [six] children (Lucas de Tuy states that "Burgensium...comite...infante Garsia" arrived in León to marry Sancha, sister of Vermudo III King of León, but was killed by "filii Velæ comitis"[130], who (assuming that this passage is historically accurate, about which there is considerable doubt) would have been the sons of Vela Núñez.]:

D.      FAMILY of MUNIO FERNÁNDEZ

 

 

1.         MUNIO Fernández (-after Sep 992).  Casado Lobato suggests that Munio Fernández, father of Fruela Muñoz, was Munio Fernández, son of Fernando Díaz Conde de Saldana & his wife Mansuara Díaz[291].  However, Prieto suggests that he was “comitis Munionis de Somiedo” who is named in an undated charter at Corias as father of Jimena Muñoz (see below)[292].  As noted below, the hypothesis of this co-identity appears supported by the possible existence of Fernando Muñoz as a son of Munio Fernández, as shown below.  According to Carlé, Munio Fernández may have been the son of Fernando Díaz & his wife Mansuara Fáfilaz, marrying Jimena as his first wife[293].  A charter dated to the 10th century records property of "Monio Fernandiz et de domna Scemena" which "domna Scemena" gave "in casamento ad sua filia domna Uraka"[294].  Gonzalo Vermúdez, Munio Fernández and Pelayo Rodríguez led one of the most successful rebellions against King Vermudo II, which succeeded in expelling the king from León, dated to between Nov 991 and Sep 992[295]m JIMENA, daughter of ---.  A charter dated to the 10th century records property of "Monio Fernandiz et de domna Scemena" which "domna Scemena" gave "in casamento ad sua filia domna Uraka"[296].  Munio & his wife had [six] children: 

a)         [FERNANDO Muñoz (-before 28 Jun 1056).  His parentage is indicated by the charter dated 29 Aug 1071 under which “Giloira” donated “hereditates de meo filio Antolino Mangiones” to Vega and also donated "divisa...abuit ea de Fernando Monnioz...sicut fuit de genitor suus commite Monnio Fernandiz" to “mea filia Maria[297].  If this parentage is correct, it appears to support the co-identity of Munio Fernández, who is shown above and not otherwise recorded as conde, with “comitis Munionis de Somiedo” (as discussed above) whose daughter Jimena married Munio Muñoz, brother of Fernando Muñoz´s wife.  However, the identification of “Fernando Monnioz” with Conde Fernando Muñoz who married Elvira Muñoz is complicated by another charter in the same collection, undated but placed in the compilation immediately prior to the charter dated 29 Aug 1071, under which “Antolin Mexuniz” donated "...ereditate que mihi donabit Fernando Monnioz et sua mater comitissa domna Gelouira in villas...in Auterolo et in Kastrallo" to Vega[298].  At first sight, the only Fernando Muñoz with a mother named Elvira appears to have been the son of Munio Fernández & his wife Elvira Froílaz (see below).  However, a charter dated 19 Dec 1016 lists their children, with Fernando not included in the list.  If Fernando was their son, he must therefore have been deceased at the time.  However, that would place the grant of property to “Antolin Mexuniz” too early to be consistent with the charter dated 29 Aug 1071 under which Antolin´s mother donated the same (presumably after Antolin had died).  One explanation could be that “mater” in the undated charter is an error for “uxor”, which would solve the chronological difficulty and support the hypothesis about Fernando´s parentage.  As part of this discussion, it is worth noting that the 29 Aug 1071 charter appears dubious to some extent: the list of subscribers includes “Santia prolix Raymundi dux”, presumably identified as Sancha, daughter of Queen Urraca and her wife Raymond de Bourgogne, who was not born before the late 11th century.  One possibility is that the document represents a later amalgamation of earlier documents and that the actual date of the donations recorded was earlier than 1071.]  Conde.  No other document has yet been identified which names Fernando Muñoz in his own capacity.  He does not appear to have been the same person as Fernando Muñoz conde in Toro, named in charters dated between 17 Feb 1035 and 1 May 1043 (see the document CASTILE NOBILITY), who had a son named Munio Fernández but whose wife was recorded as Maria in a document dated 1 May 1043.]  m ELVIRA Muñoz, daughter of MUNIO Rodríguez & his wife Anderquina Fróilaz (-after 28 Jun 1056).  Comitissa domna Esloncia et sororibus meis domna Mayior et domna Elo et item alia domna Geloria…cum Monnio Pelaiz” declared that “comes Munio Ruderiquiz maior et uxor eius comitissa domna Henderquina fuerun parentes de istas quatuor comitissas”, that “comitissa domna Geloira fuit uxor comes Fredinando Muniz et habuit filios Munnio Fredinandiz et aliorum quorum nomina ignoro”, and conclude by confirming that the monastery of Cartavio and the castillo de Aguilar belonged to the church of Oviedo, by charter dated 28 Jun 1056[299]The wording of this document suggests that Elvira was a widow at the time.  “Comitissa domna Elvira” granted "solare...abemus de avis vel de parentibus nostris in territorio Sancti Christoforum iusta flumen Ceia in vila...Castelanos" to “Maniane cognomento Velite” by charter dated 27 & 30 Aug 1073[300]Fernando & his wife had children: 

i)          MUNIO Fernández (-after 28 Jun 1056).  “Comitissa domna Esloncia et sororibus meis domna Mayior et domna Elo et item alia domna Geloria…cum Monnio Pelaiz” declared that “comes Munio Ruderiquiz maior et uxor eius comitissa domna Henderquina fuerun parentes de istas quatuor comitissas”, that “comitissa domna Geloira fuit uxor comes Fredinando Muniz et habuit filios Munnio Fredinandiz et aliorum quorum nomina ignoro”, and conclude by confirming that the monastery of Cartavio and the castillo de Aguilar belonged to the church of Oviedo, by charter dated 28 Jun 1056[301]

1.         MUNIO Rodríguez (-after 21 Jan 1039).  "Munnio Ruderiquiz…cum uxori mee Scemena, ploris Munnio Munniz" exchanged "villa de Flausas in Asturiciense valle Lena…qui fuit de patre nostro Munnio Munniz", as well as another property "secundam dedit eam rex domno Adefonso ad Munnio Munniz", with "Froyla Munniz et uxori vestre Gunterodo" by charter dated 21 Jan 1039[341]m JIMENA Muñoz, daughter of Conde MUNIO Muñoz & his first wife Jimena Muñoz (-after 21 Jan 1039).  An undated charter at Corias, which records the foundation of “monasterium Sancti Micaeli de Legione”, recites that “Munio Munionis comes, filius comitis Munionis Roderici cognomento Canis” and his first wife “filiam comitis Munionis de Somedo...Xemena Moniz” had “filiam...Xemena Moniz”, adding that she married “Munionis Roderici comitis[342].  "Munnio Ruderiquiz…cum uxori mee Scemena, ploris Munnio Munniz" exchanged "villa de Flausas in Asturiciense valle Lena…qui fuit de patre nostro Munnio Munniz", as well as another property "secundam dedit eam rex domno Adefonso ad Munnio Munniz", with "Froyla Munniz et uxori vestre Gunterodo" by charter dated 21 Jan 1039[343].  Munio & his wife had [three] children: 

a)         VELASQUITA Muñoz .  An undated charter at Corias, which records the foundation of “monasterium Sancti Micaeli de Legione”, names “Velasquida Moniz et Maiori Moniz” as the two daughters of “Xemena Moniz” and “Munionis Roderici comitis[344].  A charter at Corias names “duabus filiabus…Velasquide Moniz, Maiori Moniz…filie Munionis Roderici comitis” as the children of “Xemena Moniz” daughter of “Munio Munionis comes, filius comitis Munionis Roderici cognomento Canis[345]

b)         MAYOR Muñoz .  An undated charter at Corias, which records the foundation of “monasterium Sancti Micaeli de Legione”, names “Velasquida Moniz et Maiori Moniz” as the two daughters of “Xemena Moniz” and “Munionis Roderici comitis[346]

c)         [--- Muñoz .  Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated May 1112 under which Queen Urraca granted "villa…Coruellos, territorio Legionensi, inter duo flumina, Turio et Porma…extra hereditates que fuerunt de Aluaro Citiz", adding that the property "fuit de vestro avo commite Munnio Munniz", to "Tellus Telliz et Fernandus Telliz"[347].  The chronology of the family suggests that conde Munio Muñoz was a more remote ancestor of Tello Téllez and Fernando Téllez than "avo", maybe their great-grandfather.  If that is correct, the wife of Tello was presumably either Velasquita or Mayor who are named above as the two daughters of Munio Rodríguez.  m TELLO ---, son of --- (-after 1066).]

Vermudo Núñez & his first wife had [nine] children:

1.         FERNANDO Vermúdez (-after 9 Oct 978).  "Ovecus episcopus" confirmed a donation to Sahagún by charter dated 28 Aug 945, witnessed by "Vigila Nunniz, Suarius Nunniz, Munio Nunniz, Virmudus Nunniz…Fredenandus Virmudiz…"[366].  "Vermudo Nunez" donated property to the monastery of Santiago de Valdavida by charter dated 13 Aug 949, confirmed by "Velasquita coniux, Fredenandi prolis, Pinioli prolis"[367].  "Fredinando Vermudiz…cum consilio…rex domino Ordonio" donated "hereditate…in terreduno Riangulo locum…Gargallo…in terra Legionense" to Sahagún by charter dated 6 Jul [952][368].  "Vermudo Nunniz" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 28 Jul 955, confirmed by "Fredinando Vermudiz"[369].  He was described in a 984 Sahagún document as having inherited property from Oveco Núñez Bishop of León.  Conde: “Comite nostro Fredenando Vermutiz...Didaco, Velasco” subscribed the charter dated 27 Sep 960 under which “Arias diaconus” promised not to disturb the rights of “Arborio presbiter” on pain of paying damages[370].  “...Fredenandus Veremudiz...Gundisaluus Ueremudiz...” confirmed the charter dated 17 Sep 968 under which Ramiro III King of León donated “de comitatu de Mera III, de Nallare IV...et Parriga media et IV de comitato Nemitos” to Sobrado[371].  "Giloira Ranimiri principis filia" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 4 Apr 970, confirmed by "…Fredenando Veremudiz…"[372].  "Ranimiro rex et Gelbira reina domna" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 11 May 971, confirmed by "Ferdinando Verimudez"[373].  "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973[374].  “...Fredenandus Uermudi...Gundisaluus Ueremudi...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[375].  “...Fredenandus Ueremudiz...Gundesalbus Ueremudiz...” confirmed the charter dated 10 Dec 975 under which King Ramiro III donated “hereditatem de duobus fratribus...Salbator et Mahamuthi”, which had been confiscated for homicide, to “Sauaricus diaconus[376].  A charter dated 976 records an inventory of transactions involving "Uilla Naptaulio" which was made by "Fredenandus Uermudizi et Giluyra"[377].  Mayordomo of Ramiro III King of León[378]: “...Fredinandis Vermudiz mayordomus...” confirmed the charter dated 27 Mar 976 under which “comes Froyla Velaz...cum coniuge mea comitissa Gislavara” donated “...monasterio Sanctæ Mariæ de Cartavio...” to San Salvador de Léon[379]The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz"[380]"Ranimirus rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 18 Jan 977, confirmed by "Fredenando Veremudiz"[381].  “...Fredenandus Uermudiz...Tructinus Ueremudi...” confirmed the charter dated 8 Jan 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “Uillas de Asinos” to Sisnando Bishop of León[382]m (before [950]) ELVIRA Díaz, daughter of [DIEGO Muñoz Conde en Saldaña & his wife Tegridia ---] ([930] or before-after 27 Mar 976).  "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973"[383].  Her patronymic is confirmed by the document dated 27 Mar 976 quoted below.  No proof has been found that her father was Diego Muñoz, but the onomastics are favorable and a marriage between the two equally influential Saldaña and Cea families is to be expected[384].  Torres also highlights the charter dated 26 Sep 1028, under which the couple´s daughter "Scemena regina…" donated property "in territorio Coza super castrum de Muza inter duos rivulos Karrione et Aratoi" to Santiago de Compostela[385], highlighting that the properties in question were situated broadly in the area of influence of the Saldaña family and therefore could reasonably be supposed to have been inherited by the donor from her mother.  She confirmed a donation to the monastery of Santa Colomba de Ripa Rubia in 975 with her husband, the document also mentioning their children and their son-in-law Flaín Muñoz[386].  A charter dated 976 records an inventory of transactions involving "Uilla Naptaulio" which was made by "Fredenandus Uermudizi et Giluyra"[387]The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz"[388].  Fernando & his wife had six children: 

a)         PEDRO Fernández (-after 6 Dec 984).  "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973, confirmed by "Petrus Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz…"[389].  The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz"[390]Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 973 under which Ramiro III King of León donated property to the monastery of San Cipriano [de Valdesaz][391].  “...Petrus Fredenandiz...” confirmed the charter dated 27 Mar 976 under which “comes Froyla Velaz...cum coniuge mea comitissa Gislavara” donated “...monasterio Sanctæ Mariæ de Cartavio...” to San Salvador de Léon[392].  “Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “uilla de Sancti Uictori” to the monastery of San Cipriano de Valdesaz[393].  “...Petrus Fredenandiz...” confirmed the charter dated 6 Dec 984 under which “Fafilani presbiteri” donated “uilla...Marin de Mazelleros” to Santiago de León[394].  He was a supporter of Ramiro III King of León, forced to flee (probably to Navarre with his sister) on the accession of King Vermudo II[395]same person as…?  PEDRO Fernández (-1028).  Torres suggests that this co-identity is correct, pointing out that the known connections with Navarre of the later Pedro Fernández are best explained if he was the brother of the Navarrese queen[396].  In addition, the inheritance by the widow of Pedro Fernández of all the Cea properties of their daughter Elvira appears inexplicable if her husband was not the same Pedro Fernández who was the son of Fernando Vermúdez.  There appears no chronological difficulty with the death in 1028 of an individual born in [950].  However, if the co-identity is correct and assuming that Pedro was born in [950], he must have married late and to a much younger wife: his wife is only named from 1002 and also remarried twice after the death of her first husband.  Other historians suggest that the later Pedro Fernández was the son of Fernando Flaínez and his wife Gontrodo.  These includes Carlé[397], Salazar Acha who says that the two persons are "differentiated chronologically"[398], and Martínez Sopena who cites from the following document[399]: Alfonso V King of León granted "Kastrum…Gundisalbi…super ripe Zegie territorio Legionense", property “in alia loco Vilaseca”, and “in tertio loco barrio Fontes”, all described as “quantum ibidem obtinuit Fredenandus Flaginiz cum coniuge eius Gunterode", to "Petro Ferdinandi filio" by charter dated 14 Mar 1017[400].  The document in question does not refer to a direct family connection between Fernando Flaínez and the grantee.  The reference “quantum ibidem obtinuit” indicates that the property in question came from the family of Gontrodo.  She is recorded as having donated parts of the properties to the monastery of Santiago de León (see elsewhere in the present document, under Fernando Flaínez).  These donations do not refer to Pedro Fernández, an omission which would be surprising if he was Gontrodo´s son.  One possible explanation of the 1017 charter is a more remote family relationship between Pedro Fernández and Gontrodo, maybe through Argilo, first wife of Vermudo Núñez, who would have been the paternal grandmother of Pedro if he was the same person as Pedro Fernández who is named in the documents dated between 973 and 976 which are quoted above.  "Auria…post meo obitu" granted "in territorio de Uani Amores in ville…Uanicolues" to "Petro Fredenandiz et uxori vestre domna Sancia" by charter dated 3 Sep 1002[401].  Alfonso V King of León granted "villa…Abaeif…in territorio Astoricense" to "fidelem meum Petrus Fernandi filius" by charter dated 29 Apr 1014[402].  Alfonso V King of León granted "billa…Fraxino" to "fidelem nostrum Petrus Fredinandiz filius" by charter dated 16 Jun 1016[403].  He was a supporter of Alfonso V King of León, one of the leaders of the partido navarro[404].  In 1016, Alfonso V King of León gave him Castrogonzalo, Villaseca and Fuentes de Ropel, properties confiscated from Sancho García Conde de Castilla[405]: Alfonso V King of León granted "Kastrum…Gundisalbi…super ripe Zegie territorio Legionense" to "Petro Ferdinandi filio" by charter dated 14 Mar 1017[406].  "Petro Fernandis" donated "in territorio Astoricensis discurrente riuulo Tera Villa de Azefe" to "uxor mea Sancia" by charter dated 19 Aug 1017[407].  “...Petro Fernandi...” confirmed the charter dated 26 Feb 1020 under which “Fredenandus Flayniz et eius coniuge Geloire” donated property to the monks of San Martín[408].  Alfonso V King of León granted property to "Riquilo" by charter dated 19 Aug 1022, subscribed by "comes Monio Muniuzi, Petrus Muniuzi, Petrus Fernandizi, Pelagius Mendizi, Rodorigo Ordonizi, Piniolus armiger regis, Rodorigo Romanizi, Sanctio Exemenizi, Rodorigo Veilaz, Enego Veilazi"[409].  Alfonso V King of León granted property at Villaturiel to "fidelem et notarius meus Sampirus presbiter" by charter dated 13 Nov 1023, subscribed by "…Ordonius prolis Ueremundi principis, Munius Ruderiquiz, Rudericus Velaz, Petro Flainiz, Arias Pinnioliz diaconus…Muniu Munneonis, Fredenando Flainiz, Petro Fernandiz, Petro Feroilaz"[410].  “...Petrus Fredenandiz...” confirmed the charter dated 2 Aug 1026 under which "Didacus Fredenandiz et uxor mea Marina et filiis nostris" donated "Uilla Reuelle...in Ualle de Ratario...hereditate que fecit Uincenti ad Fafila Olaliz avius istius Didaco Fredenandiz" to León Cathedral[411]Conde.  "Cide Albonez" granted property "in territorio Astoricensis in villa…Uani Amores" to "comite Petro Fredenandiz et uxor vestre domna Sancia" by charter dated 26 Dec 1027[412]m (before 3 Sep 1002) as her first husband, SANCHA Múñoz, daughter of conde MUNIO Fernández [de Saldaña] & his wife Elvira Froilaz (bur León Cathdral).  "Auria…post meo obitu" granted "in territorio de Uani Amores in ville…Uanicolues" to "Petro Fredenandiz et uxori vestre domna Sancia" by charter dated 3 Sep 1002[413].  "Petro Fernandis" donated "in territorio Astoricensis discurrente riuulo Tera Villa de Azefe" to "uxor mea Sancia" by charter dated 19 Aug 1017[414].  "Cide Albonez" granted property "in territorio Astoricensis in villa…Uani Amores" to "comite Petro Fredenandiz et uxor vestre domna Sancia" by charter dated 26 Dec 1027[415].  She married secondly ([1028/25 Feb 1029]) conde Pelayo Muñoz.  She married thirdly (before 1035) conde Rodrigo Galíndez.  "Rudericus prolis Galindi et Sancia prolis Monioni Fredenandi" donated "villa Sancti Laurentii…qui fuit de avio meo Froila Vigilazi…in Valle de Iunco villa quos concessit rex domnus Adefonsus a patri meo Munio Fredinandi…Villare de Quotanes…excepto barrio…quod est de filias de Froila Osoriz" to León Cathedral, referring also to "viro meo Petro Fredinandiz…eius filia et mea Giluira" who held property for ten years after her father´s death but then died herself, by charter dated 31 Aug 1038[416].  Pedro & his wife had one child: 

i)          ELVIRA Pérez (-[1037/31 Aug 1038]).  "Rudericus prolis Galindi et Sancia prolis Monioni Fredenandi" made donations to León Cathedral and referred to "viro meo Petro Fredinandiz…eius filia et mea Giluira" who held property for ten years after her father´s death but then died herself, by charter dated 31 Aug 1038[417]

b)         GÓMEZ Fernández (-[before 984]).  "Fernando Vermuiz et Gelvira uxor" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 30 Nov 973, confirmed by "Petrus Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz…"[418].  The testament of "Vela Vermudez" is dated 27 Mar 976, names "Vermudo Velaz…Argilo" as beneficiaries, confirmed by "Nunno Velaz, Fernando Vermuiz, Gilvira Didaz uxor Fernando Vermuiz, Petero Fernandiz, Gomiz Fernandiz filiis Fernando Vermuiz"[419]Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 973 under which Ramiro III King of León donated property to the monastery of San Cipriano [de Valdesaz][420].  “Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “uilla de Sancti Uictori” to the monastery of San Cipriano de Valdesaz[421]m [ONECA ---, daughter of ---.  “Domna Onnega comitissa” donated "ereditate...que abui de mater mea alia domna Onnega vel de abo meo comite Fernando Bermudez...villa...Castriello de Tapiolas" to Vega by charter dated 29 Sep 1062[422].  It is not certain that the donor in this document was Oneca Gómez who is shown below.  However, the other documents in which Oneca Gómez is named, quoted below, do suggest that they all relate to the same person.  Concerning the 29 Sep 1062 document, the naming of the donor´s mother and grandfather in connection with the same property suggests that it was inherited through the maternal line and that “comite Fernando Bermudez” was the donor´s maternal grandfather.  However, the charter dated 10 Nov 1064, quoted below, indicates that Oneca was the daughter of Gómez Fernandez, presumably the son of Fernando Vermúdez.  Another possibility is therefore that the property donated under the charter dated 29 Sep 1062 was granted as dower by the donor´s father to his wife for her lifetime and had reverted to the couple´s daughter after his wife died.]  Gómez & his wife had [three] children: 

i)          ONECA Gómez ([975/80]-after 10 Nov 1062).  [“Domna Onnega comitissa” donated "ereditate...que abui de mater mea alia domna Onnega vel de abo meo comite Fernando Bermudez...villa...Castriello de Tapiolas" to Vega by charter dated 29 Sep 1062[423]The same person as this donor is named in two other documents: “Antolin Mexuniz” donated "ereditate que abeo de donatione de illa comitissa domna Onneca in villa...Castriello de Tapiolas" to Vega by undated charter[424], while “Giloira” donated “hereditate de meo filio Antolino Mangiones...obtinuit...illa comitissa domine Onnega pro suo foro et abiis et bisabiis suis” to Vega by charter dated 29 Aug 1071 (but which should probably be redated earlier for reasons discussed elsewhere in the present document)[425].  It is not certain that this “condesa Oneca” was the same person as Oneca Gómez.  However, when read together with the other documents quoted in this paragraph, it is does appear that this co-identity is possible.  Torres and Salazar Acha suggest that in the 29 Sep 1062 charter “abo” should be interpreted more broadly as “ancestor” rather than “grandfather[426].  However, “grandfather” appears appropriate if, as appears to be the case from the document dated 10 Nov 1062 which is quoted below, Oneca´s father was Gómez Fernández.  It is true that, if this is correct, Oneca would have been in her late 80s or 90s when she died.  However, other members of the family of Fernando Vermúdez appear to have been long-lived, assuming that their dates of death are correctly shown in the present document.  The only other contemporary “condesa Oneca” who has so far been identified is Oneca Ovéquiz, daughter of Oveco Vermúdez and his wife Elvira Suárez, who married conde Sancho Ordóñez and is shown in Chapter 1.C of the present document.  The chronology of conde Sancho´s family suggests that they married in the late 1050s/early 1060s and no indication has been found that she may have been the same person as the donor in the charter dated 29 Sep 1062.  All the documents quoted in the present paragraph, when read together, suggest an older donor who was donating property towards the end of her life.]  "Domna Onneca" donated property “in Ecclesiasindenia” to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "filio meo senior Garcia Fortuniones", by charter dated 1061, confirmed by “…Rodrico Vermudo, sennor Didaco Alvarez, Ordonio Ordonioz…[427].  "Cometissa domna Onneca, Gomiz Fredenandiz prolis" donated property “in territorio…Borueva in villa…Ecclesiasindenia” to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "mi…filio Garsiano", by charter dated 10 Nov 1062, confirmed by “…sennor Nunno Alvarez, sennor Roderico Bermudez, sennor Sarracino Hanniz, sennor Didaco Alvarez, sennor Hanni Hanniz, sennor Ordoni Ordoniz, sennor Fredinando Rodriz, sennor Alvaro Rodriz, sennor Eximino Lopiz, sennor Salvator Gondissalviz, sennor Galindo Belasquiz[428].  Her two marriages are suggested by the charter dated 1050 under which "Senior Furtun Sancii…cum uxor mea dompna Tota" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, for the soul of "socer meus regi Garsea Ranimiriz", and names "frater meus senior Garsea Fortuniones"[429], assuming that the latter was the same García Fortúnez who is recorded in the other charters cited above as Oneca´s son.  It is not known which of Oneca´s husbands was Conde as neither has yet been identified beyond their names.  Her marriages to Navarrese noblemen were presumably arranged by her paternal aunt who was queen of Navarre (see below).  m [firstly/secondly] FORTÚN, son of ---.  m [firstly/secondly] SANCHO, son of ---. 

ii)         [FERNANDO Gómez (-after 1020).  Carlé suggests that the Fernando and Rodrigo Gómez who confirmed a donation of Fernando Flaínez in 1020 were sons of Gómez Fernández[430].] 

iii)        [RODRIGO Gómez (-after 1020).  Carlé suggests that the Fernando and Rodrigo Gómez who confirmed a donation of Fernando Flaínez in 1020 were sons of Gómez Fernández[431].]

f)          [JUSTA Fernández (before [955]-).  Her parentage and marriage are suggested by her husband being named in her mother´s document dated 975[443].  However, the charter dated 15 Jul 1009 (quoted below) shows that all the known children of Flaín Muñoz were born from his marriage to Justa Pépiz, whom he must therefore have married well before 15 Jul 991 when she is first named with her patronymic.  The question is further complicated by a charter dated 26 Feb 1020, under which Fernando Flaínez (son of Flaín Muñoz) donated the monastery and town of Pereda to San Marcos, which states that one of the properties "Sajambre" had belonged to "Fredenando Uermudiz et Flauio Moniz avii et patris nostri"[444].  The only apparent explanation for these two contradictory sources appears to be that Justa Fernández and Justa Pépiz were in fact the same person and that "Pépiz" represented some sort of nickname not a patronymic.  m ([before 975]) [as his first wife,] FLAÍN Muñoz, son of MUNIO Flaínez & his wife Froiloba Vermúdez (-[998/11 Mar 1003]).]

9.         [GONZALO Vermúdez (-after 992).  Álvarez Palenzuela suggests that Gonzalo Vermúdez was the possible son of Vermudo Núñez[461].  Torres considers that this affiliation is unlikely considering that King Vermudo II described him as "Gundisalbus, Ueremudi filius, qui atuenam huyus terre nostre fuerat"[462].  Gonzalo is not mentioned among the possible children of Vermudo Núñez by Salazar Acha[463].  Tenente in Luna.  “...Fredenandus Veremudiz...Gundisaluus Ueremudiz...” confirmed the charter dated 17 Sep 968 under which Ramiro III King of León donated “de comitatu de Mera III, de Nallare IV...et Parriga media et IV de comitato Nemitos” to Sobrado[464].  “...Fredenandus Uermudi...Gundisaluus Ueremudi...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[465].  “...Fredenandus Ueremudiz...Gundesalbus Ueremudiz...” confirmed the charter dated 10 Dec 975 under which King Ramiro III donated “hereditatem de duobus fratribus...Salbator et Mahamuthi”, which had been confiscated for homicide, to “Sauaricus diaconus[466].  “...Gundissalvus Veremundiz...” confirmed the charter dated 27 Mar 976 under which “comes Froyla Velaz...cum coniuge mea comitissa Gislavara” donated “...monasterio Sanctæ Mariæ de Cartavio...” to San Salvador de Léon[467].  Gonzalo Vermúdez, Munio Fernández and Pelayo Rodríguez led one of the most successful rebellions against King Vermudo II, which succeeded in expelling the king from León, dated to between Nov 991 and Sep 992[468].]  m ILDONZA Ramírez, daughter of RAMIRO Menéndez & his wife Adosinda Gutiérrez.  Gonzalo & his wife had one child:

F.      FAMILY of PIÑOLO GUNDEMÁRIZ

 

 

PIÑOLO Gundemáriz, son of GUNDEMAR --- & his wife --- (-after 20 Jan 962).  “...Pinnol Gondemariz...” confirmed the charter dated 8 Jun 954 under which King Ordoño III donated “eglesia...Sancti Claudii, Luperci et Uictorici in arraballde...civitatis Legione” to the church of León[471].  "Fortunius Garseani" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 20 Jan 962, confirmed by "…Piniolus Gundemari…"[472]

m JIMENA Vélaz, daughter of VELA Nuñez & his wife Totilde ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter at Corias which records that “comes Vela et uxor eius comitissa Todildi” reconstructed “monasterium Sancti Micaelis de Varzena”, specifying that they had “iiiior filios Vermutus Velaz, Sancio Velaz, Ouevo Velaz, Xemena Vela”, and adding that Jimena Vela was “mater comitissa Aragonti de qua...natus est Piniolus comes[473]

Piñolo & his wife had [seven] children: 

a)         GUNDEMARO Pinioliz (-before 1012).  Armiger 976.  ...Gundemarus Pinioliz...” subscribed the charter dated 24 Dec 988 under which Vermudo II King of León donated “homines...in Uangueses cum incommuniatos de Cegio” to Celanova[474]Conde en Asturias 996.  m MUNIADOMNA, daughter of ---.  Gundemaro & his wife had one child: 

i)          FERNANDO Gundemáriz (-after 1044)"[Ermegildus cognomento] Menendus Folienz…cum uxore sua…Gunterode Ordoniz" donated "villa…Tauoadelo quos fuit de comes domno Gundisaluo Menendi" to Vimeiro, naming "Ordonio Ranemiriz et sua mulier domna Geluira…suo genro Fredenando Gundemariz et…sua mulier Mummadomna Ordoniz", by charter dated 31 Mar 1045[475].  [m JIMENA de Léon, daughter of ALFONSO V King of León & his [first/second wife Elvira Menéndez/Urraca García de Navarra] ([1016/25]-).  Menéndez Pidal hypothesises that “Jimena”, wife of Fernando Gundemáriz, was the daughter of Alfonso V King of León (and grandmother of Jimena Díaz, who married Rodrigo Díaz "el Cid")[476].  His theory attempts to explain why [her supposed granddaughter] Jimena was described as "neptem suam" by Alfonso VI King of Castile[477].  There are several difficulties with Menéndez Pidal´s hypothesis.  Firstly, no source has been identified which names Fernando´s wife as Jimena.  Secondly, the wife of Fernando Gundemáriz is named Muniadomna Ordóñez in another source: "[Ermegildus cognomento] Menendus Folienz…cum uxore sua…Gunterode Ordoniz" donated "villa…Tauoadelo quos fuit de comes domno Gundisaluo Menendi" to Vimeiro, naming "Ordonio Ranemiriz et sua mulier domna Geluira…suo genro Fredenando Gundemariz et…sua mulier Mummadomna Ordoniz", by charter dated 31 Mar 1045[478].  Thirdly, Fernando´s known wife Muniadomna was the niece of Elvira Menéndez, wife of King Alfonso V, which represents a sufficiently close family relationship for King Alfonso VI to call her granddaughter “neptem suam” (assuming that the term was used in an extended sense, which is not at all uncommon).  Fourthly, the chronology appears tight for a daughter of King Alfonso V to have been the grandmother of Jimena (whose marriage is dated to 1074).  The evidence for the supposed marriage of this Jimena de León therefore appears slight.]  m MUNIADOMNA Ordóñez, daughter of ORDOÑO Ramírez & his wife Elvira --- (-[before 1045]).  "[Ermegildus cognomento] Menendus Folienz…cum uxore sua…Gunterode Ordoniz" donated "villa…Tauoadelo quos fuit de comes domno Gundisaluo Menendi" to Vimeiro, naming "Ordonio Ranemiriz et sua mulier domna Geluira…suo genro Fredenando Gundemariz et…sua mulier Mummadomna Ordoniz", by charter dated 31 Mar 1045[479].  Fernando & his wife had [three] children: 

(a)       DIEGO Fernández .  An undated charter at Corias records that “Didacus Fernandi filius comitis Fernandi Gommariz” sold “villam de Varzenella” to “Adefonsus Moniz cognomento Tarasia”, the latter donating the property “Era MCLXX” [1132][480], although it is difficult to reconcile this date with a grant made by a son of Fernando Gundemáriz.  The question then arises as to the later career of this Diego Fernández, one possibility being that he was DIEGO Fernández Conde [in Asturias]. 

(b)       URRACA Fernández (-after 1083).  She names her father Fernando Gundemáriz in her confirmation of the 1083 document of Rodrigo Díaz, in which she is described as "amitae suæ" in relation to the latter, which relates to his and his siblings' claim to the monastery of Tol[481]

(c)       [CRISTINA .  Torres refers to a copy of a document at Oviedo, the original of which has disappeared, which names “Cristina” as the mother of Jimena, daughter of Diego Fernández Conde [in Asturias] and wife of Rodrigo Díaz "el Cid"[482].  Menéndez Pidal hypothesises that Diego´s wife was the daughter of Fernando Gundemáriz[483].  As noted above, another possibility is to identify Diego Fernández with the son of Fernando Gundemáriz (see above).  It should be noted that it is not necessary that Conde Diego married a second wife at all in order to explain the various family relationships which are specified in the charters quoted in this section.  m [as his second wife,] DIEGO Fernández Conde [in Asturias, son of ---.] 

b)         ELVIRA Pinioliz (-after 1034).  “La condesa Elvira Pinioliz” donated the villa of Gomean to the church of Lugo, for the soul of her husband “conde Vermudo Velaz” buried in the monastery, by charter dated 26 Jan 1027[484].  The same donation was ratified by another charter dated 1034 which is confirmed by “Geloira Christi ancilla prolis Pinioli, Ovecus comes prolis Veremundi, Pelagio Veremundi, Adosinda Veremundi, Gugina Deo vota Christi ancilla, Mansuara Veremundi[485].  In another document dated 1034, she mentions Adosinda, Gotina and Mansuara Vermúdez presumed to be her daughters[486]m VERMUDO Vélaz, son of VELA Vermúdez & his wife --- (-before 26 Jan 1027, bur Lugo). 

c)         [NUÑO Pinioliz (-[1000]).] 

d)         [OVECO Pinioliz .] 

e)         ARAGONTA Pinioliz Her marriage is confirmed by an undated charter at Corias which records that [her son] “comes Sancius Xemeni” inherited “monasterium Sancti Micaelis de Canero” from “patre suo comite Xemeno Xemeniz et de matre sua comitissa Aragonti” and donated it to Corias[487]Her maternal ancestry is confirmed by a charter at Corias records that “comes Vela et uxor eius comitissa Todildi” reconstructed “monasterium Sancti Micaelis de Varzena”, specifying that they had “iiiior filios Vermutus Velaz, Sancio Velaz, Ouevo Velaz, Xemena Vela”, and adding that Jimena Vela was “mater comitissa Aragonti de qua...natus est Piniolus comes[488].  Her paternal ancestry is suggested by her naming her son Piñolo, and also by the connection of the latter with her supposed sister Auria (see below).  m JIMENO Jiménez, son of JIMENO Díaz & his wife Aragonta Gutiérrez ([945/50]-). 

f)          AURIA Pinioliz (-after 1026).  “El conde Piñolo y la condesa Aldonza” bought property “la mitad de Veiga de Meredo” from “Auria Pinioliz” by charter dated 1026[489]Assuming that the patronymic of the mother of conde Piñolo Jiménez was “Pinioliz”, Auria would presumably have been Piñolo´s maternal aunt. 

g)         MUNIA Pinioliz .  “Piniolus Ximenez comes et coniux mea comitisa Ildoncia Munionis” founded the monastery of San Juan de Corias, including the donation of property “...in Navego illa villa de Palacio quæ fuit de sororibus nostris Auria et Munia”, by charter dated 1044[490]

 

 

 

G.      FAMILY of DIEGO FERNÁNDEZ

 

 

1.         DIEGO Fernández (-[before 24 Jul 1046]).  There are two possibilities for the parentage of Diego Fernández.  Either he could have been Diego Fernández, son of Fernando Gundemáriz & his wife Muniadomna Ordóñez or, secondly, he could have been Diego Fernández, son of Fernando Flaínez & his wife Elvira Peláez.  Discussion about the relative merits of each case appears to revolve around the description of his daughter Jimena as "nieta del rey don Alfonsso [indicating Alfonso VI King of Castile], filla del conte don Diago de Asturias" in the "Corónicas" Navarras (as well as in other narrative sources)[491]Menéndez Pidal, in order to explain this family relationship, hypothesised that Diego´s [second] wife “Cristina” was the daughter of Fernando Gundemáriz and his supposed wife “Jimena, daughter of Alfonso V King of León”[492].  This approach would be consistent with the second possible parentage noted above, but as discussed in Part F of the present chapter under Fernando Gundemáriz, there appear to be several difficulties with the hypothesis.  A more straightforward solution is the first possible parentage noted above, which would satisfactorily explain the family relationship with King Alfonso VI and does not require any speculation about the parentage of Diego´s second wife.  Conde"Diaco Fernandiz comes" confirmed the charter dated 19 Jan [1026] under which "Stephanus presbiter" donated "ipsa corte" to the monastery of San Andrés, San Facundo and San Martín in Tolia, Zamora[493].  “...Didacus Fredenandiz comes...” subscribed the charter dated 30 Dec 1028 under which Vermudo III King of León donated “villam...Cordario” to Santiago de Compostela[494].  The 24 Jul 1046 charter of his daughter Oneca [Mayor] appears to indicate that her parents were both deceased at that date.  m [firstly] ELVIRA Ovéquiz, daughter of conde OVECO Sánchez & his wife Elo ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated 24 Jul 1046 which refers to property which “comitissa domna Gelvira et…viro suo Didaco Fredenandi” inherited from “comite domno Oveco et domna Eilo”, another charter dated 19 Apr 1058 specifying that “conde Oveco Sanchez” was father of Elvira[495].  [m secondly [CRISTINA], daughter of [FERNANDO Gundemáriz & his wife Muniadomna Ordóñez].  Torres refers to a copy of a document at Oviedo, the original of which has disappeared, which names “Cristina” as the mother of Jimena, daughter of Diego Fernández Conde [in Asturias] and wife of Rodrigo Díaz "el Cid"[496].  Menéndez Pidal hypothesises that Diego´s wife was the daughter of Fernando Gundemáriz[497].  As noted above, another possibility is to identify Diego Fernández with the son of Fernando Gundemáriz (see above).  It should be noted that it is not necessary that Conde Diego married a second wife at all in order to explain the various family relationships which are specified in the charters quoted in this section.]  Diego & his [first] wife had one child: 

a)         ONECA [Mayor] Díaz (before [1030]-after 19 Apr 1058).  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by a charter dated 24 Jul 1046 under which “Oneca Diaz…cum viro meo Gundemaro Joannes” declared themselves “vigarius et personarius de comite Didaco Fredenandi et de comitissa domna Gelvira” and refers to property which “comitissa domna Gelvira et…viro suo Didaco Fredenandi” inherited from “comite domno Oveco et domna Eilo”, together with another charter dated 19 Apr 1058 which specifies that “conde Oveco Sanchez” was father of Elvira[498].  Assuming that the 24 Jul 1046 charter, quoted below, is correctly dated, it is unlikely that Oneca was born later than 1030 considering that she was already married at that date.  Bearing in mind the chronology of her mother and maternal grandparents, it is probable that she was born much earlier than this.  [Fernando Díaz granted the monastery of Santa María in Oviedo to his wife Enderquina Muñoz as arras by charter dated 17 Apr 1097, the document naming his wife´s father, her brother-in-law Rodrigo Díaz and her sister-in-law Mayor Díaz together with the latter's husband Golmaro Ioannes[499].  The text of this document has not yet been checked to confirm whether it includes references to the actual relationships "brother-in-law" and "sister-in-law", whether the language indicates that the named individuals were alive or deceased at the time, and the context in which they are named (subscribers, joint holders of the property etc).  The reference to Golmaro Ioannes suggests that "Mayor Díaz" was the same person as "Oneca Díaz" who is named in the 24 Jul 1046 charter, as "Golmaro" could be a variation of the name Gundemaro.  However, assuming that the 17 Apr 1097 charter indicates that the named individuals were alive at the time, Oneca Díaz and her husband Gundemaro Ioannes would have been rather old at the time.  Until the 17 Apr 1097 charter is checked, it is preferable to highlight the doubt about this co-identity by showing this charter in square brackets.]  m (before 24 Jul 1046) GUNDEMARO [Golmaro] Yáñez, son of JUAN --- & his wife ---.  "Gundemaro Iohannes" confirmed two diplomas of King Fernando I in 1053 and 1056[500].  He was the brother of Flámula and Goina[501]

Diego & his [first/second] wife had four children:

b)         RODRIGO Díaz (-before 1090).  "…Ruderico Didaz, Fernando Didaz…" subscribed the charter dated 15 Oct 1071 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile donated "…hereditates que fuerunt de comitisssa domina Geluira filia comes Faffila Fernandiz…in ripa de Estola et in illa terra de Sumontia" to "soror mea domina Urracca prolis Fredenandiz"[502].  In 1083, he and his siblings Fernando and Jimena Díaz claimed rights to the monastery of San Salvador de Tol[503]Conde [de Asturias].  "...Rodricus Didaz commes, Fernando Didaz commes..." confirmed the charter dated 8 May 1080 under which King Alfonso VI decreed that no representative of the king could enter Sahagún[504].  "...Rudericus Didaz, Fredinando Didaz..." confirmed the charter dated 14 May 1080 under which King Alfonso VI granted freedoms and exemptions to Sahagún[505]...Comite Roderigo Didaz...” [signing second] subscribed the charter dated 29 Mar 1085 under which "comitissa de terra Spanensi...Iusta" sold property to “...comite domno Petro...et uxore vestre comitissa domna Eilo[506].  [Fernando Díaz granted the monastery of Santa María in Oviedo to his wife Enderquina Muñoz as arras by charter dated 17 Apr 1097, the document naming his wife´s father, her brother-in-law Rodrigo Díaz and her sister-in-law Mayor Díaz together with the latter's husband Golmaro Ioannes[507].  The text of this document has not yet been checked to confirm whether it includes references to the actual relationships "brother-in-law" and "sister-in-law", whether the language indicates that the named individuals were alive or deceased at the time, and the context in which they are named (subscribers, joint holders of the property etc).  Concerning "Rodrigo Díaz" who is named in this document, there are two possibilities: either Rodrigo Díaz, son of Diego Fernández, or Rodrigo Díaz, husband of Jimena Díaz (see below), both of whom were "brother-in-law" of Enderquina Muñoz.  Until the 17 Apr 1097 charter is checked, it is preferable to highlight the doubt about this co-identity by showing this charter in square brackets.]  m GONTRODO, daughter of ---.  She is named as the wife of Rodrigo Díaz in documentation from Corias[508]

c)         FERNANDO Díaz (-[killed in battle Uclés May 1108]).  "…Ruderico Didaz, Fernando Didaz…" subscribed the charter dated 15 Oct 1071 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile donated "…hereditates que fuerunt de comitisssa domina Geluira filia comes Faffila Fernandiz…in ripa de Estola et in illa terra de Sumontia" to "soror mea domina Urracca prolis Fredenandiz"[509]

-        ASTURIAS de OVIEDO

d)         JIMENA Díaz (-1106).  The "Corónicas" Navarras record that "este meo Çid" married "dona Xemena, nieta del rey don Alfonsso, filla del conte don Diago de Asturias"[510]"Ruderigo Didaz" accepted as his wife "Scemena filia Didago ducis de terra Asturiense" and granted property "in territorio Kastelle…in Cavia" to her, including "villas que michi saccarunt Albaro Faniz et Albaro Albariz sobrinis meis", with "comes Petro Assuriz et comes Garsea Ordonniz" as guarantors, by charter dated 19 Jul 1074[511].  "Rodric Diaz et uxor mea Scemena" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 12 May 1076[512].  She attempted to retain control of Valencia after her husband's death but finally evacuated the city Apr/May 1102.  The Anales Toledanos record the death in 1106 of “Dona Ximena su muger [del Cid][513].  m ([19 Jul] 1074) RODRIGO Díaz de Vivar "El Cid Campeador", son of Diego Laínez & his wife Teresa Rodríguez (Vivar near Burgos [1043]-Valencia [10] Jul 1099, bur Cardeña).  Alférez of Sancho II King of Castile 1066.  Lord and independent ruler of Valencia 1094-1099. 

e)         AUROVITA Díaz .  She is named as sister of Rodrigo and Fernándo Díaz in their 1083 donation to the monastery of San Vicente, which also gives the name of her husband[514]m MUNIO Godestéiz, son of ---.  He fought with his brother-in-law Rodrigo Díaz "el Cid" and accompanied his widow Jimena Díaz after his death[515]

A.      ALFONSO FAMILY

 

 

ALFONSO Díaz, son of [DIEGO --- & his wife ---] (-[8 Nov 1024/24 Feb 1028]).  “...Afonso Diaz...” confirmed the charter dated 15 May 984 under which "Garcia Gomez conde" donated his share of property "quam habeo de avorum parentumque meorum in villa…Calzatella in territorio de Carrione, in valle de Quoza" to Sahagún[546].  "Justa" exchanged land "in Piniares" with "Adefonso Didaz" by charter dated 6 Mar 997, which names “Monnio Vermudiz” as holder of adjacent property[547].  "…Adefonso Diaz…" confirmed the charter dated 21 Mar 1006 under which the abbot of Sahagún sold "villa in territorio Legionensi…Uncina" to "Ruderico Didazi filio"[548].  "Adefonso Diaz…" confirmed the charter dated 19 Nov 1018 under which the abbot of Sahagún recited the foundation of the abbey and the confirmation of its privileges by King Alfonso V[549].  Alfonso V King of León granted "villa de Elga…in territorio Graliare" to "Adefonso prolis Didaci" by charter dated 23 Sep 1019[550]Adefonsus prolix Didacus sive coniuge mee...Maria...aut filiis nostris” donated “vinia...in territorio Levanense” [Liébana] to Santillana del Mar by charter dated 16 Nov 1021, witnessed by “...abatisa Fronildi, Veila Munioz, Vermidus Braoliz, Tercia de Maiordomum, Fredinandus Vermudiz, Velliti Martiniz, Ordudus Frenandez...[551]Conde in Grajal: "Adefonso Didaz comes in Graliare…" confirmed the charter dated 8 Nov 1024 under which "Monnio Gomiz…cum uxore mea Geluira Fafilaz" donated "ecclesiam…Sancti Iuliani…iuxta flumen Estule…Bouatella subtus Castro de Milanos…habemus…ex parentibus nostris Fafila Fernandiz et domna Adosinda" to Sahagún[552]

m MARÍA ---, daughter of --- (-after 1031).  Adefonsus prolix Didacus sive coniuge mee...Maria...aut filiis nostris” donated “vinia...in territorio Levanense” [Liébana] to Santillana del Mar by charter dated 16 Nov 1021[553]Although her origin is uncertain, Martínez Sopena highlights that her son Munio Alfonso referred to property inherited from his "abio…Nuño Miréllez", pointing out that, from a chronological point of view, it would be more consistent if he had been Munio´s great-grandfather[554].  This refers to two documents.  Firstly, "Monnio Afonso" donated "populatione sub carrera in Uilla Ueica…ego comparavi de domna Maria…et illa serna que fuit de meo abolo Nunno Mirelliz" by charter dated 11 Feb 1042[555]Secondly, the charter dated 13 Mar 1045 under which "Monio Adefonso, Guter Adefonso, Monio Muniz, Petro Muniz, Osorio Osoriz" donated "quod visabus noster Nunnus Mirelliz construxit monasterium in territorio Bericense…Sancta Lucidia…ipse abius noster Nunnus Murelliz" to Astorga Cathedral[556].  Bearing in mind the other documents which are quoted in this section, particularly those relating to the wife of Otrosia (María´s probable sister), it is probable that María was her father´s daughter by an early marriage.  "…Maria comitissa, Munnio Afonso, Guttier Afonso, Garsia Afonso" confirmed the charter dated 24 Feb 1028 under which "Sarrazino presbiter" donated "ecclesia Sancti Iuliani et Baselisse…in villa…Demar" to Sahagún[557].  The absence of her husband implies that he had died before this date.

C.      FAMILY of FLAÍN MUÑOZ

 

 

The first four generations of this family are uncertain, proposed speculatively by Cadenas Allende[927].  He appears to base his reconstruction solely on the patronymics, but does highlight that there is documentation to support the existence of each person individually and that the chronology supports the proposal.  Munio Flaínez, who was closely linked to the family of the condes de Cea, acquired property in the Valle de Laurenzo in the eastern mountains of León and expanded his holdings to include Noantica, Corniero and the Valle del Caso[928].  His son Flaín Muñoz was created conde, continued to consolidate the family's territorial holdings, and is recorded for the first time at the court of Vermudo II King of León in a document dated 986.  He presumably supported the king in the civil war of the time, like the condes de Cea.  Flaín's sons, Fernando Flaínez and Pedro Flaínez, supported Alfonso V King of León and each founded branches of the family which gained considerable political influence during the 11th and 12th centuries.  However, the kings of León must have found it difficult to manage the family's ambitions, bearing in mind the number of rebellions against the central authority in which the involvement of family members is recorded during this period. 

 

 

PURCELLO, son of --- ([800]-862).  He lived in the area of Lois, León.  He defeated the Moors at Río de las Dueñas in 853, for which he was rewarded by Ordoño I King of Asturias by confirmation of his position in the area of Valdoré.  King Ordoño I confirmed "in ripas Istola…Orete" to "Purello" by charter dated 6 May 854, in the presence of "comites sancio, Domno Nuno, Kartia, Almonde…"[929]

i)          [FLAÍN Díaz (-after 22 Nov 947).  His existence is corroborated by the chronicle of Ibn Hayyan, which describes how he was a supporter of Ramiro II King of León in the civil war with his brother ex-King Alfonso IV, and how his brother and son-in-law were killed in an attack in 932[931].  "…Gutier Menendiz, Arias Menendiz, Flaginus Didaz…" subscribed the charter dated 5 Jun [892] under which Ranulfo Bishop of Astorga donated the church of Villanueva de Valdueza to San Pedro de Montes[932].  “...Garsea Furtuniz, Flainus Didaci, Gisiuadus...” confirmed the charter dated 9 Jan 916 under which King Ordoño II donated "locum...Ualle Cesarii" to “abbati Seruando[933].  “...Garsea Furtuniz, Flainus Didaci, Gisiuado maiordomus, Braulio, Lup iben Alcutia...Fortis prolis regis” confirmed the charter dated 8 Jan 917 under which King Ordoño II donated "locum...Perameno" to “confessoribus...Transmundo et Recesuindo[934].  "…Guter Osoriz, Guter Menendi, Arias Menendiz, Flaginus Didaz, Fredinandus Didaz…" confirmed the charter dated 24 Apr [918], probably spurious, under which "Ordonius rex et Giloria regina" donated el Coto de Valdueza to the monastery of San Pedro de Montes[935]Conde: the dating clause of a charter dated 943, under which "Abofetha et Cisla" donated property to the monastery of San Martín de Albelda, names "regnante principe Garseani in Pampilona, et comite Flagino in Vecharia…"[936].  "Garsea rex…cum genitrice Tuta regina" donated property to the monastery of San Martín de Albelda by charter dated 22 Nov 947, witnessed by "…Flaginus comes…"[937].  Tudemiro Bishop of Nájera donated property to the monastery of San Martín de Albelda by charter dated 22 Nov [947], confirmed by "…Flaginius comes, Garsia comes…"[938].]  m ---.  The name of Flaín's wife is not known.  Flaín & his wife had [four] children:

-         see below

(b)       FERNANDO Flaínez (-after 16 Nov 985).  "Sanctius rex" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 26 Apr 960, confirmed by "Tarasia, Gilvira Ranimiri prolis", signed by "…Fredinando Flaini…"[940].  "Fredinandus Flaini et uxor Guntrodo" sold property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 8 Oct 960[941].  "Giloira Ranimiri principis filia" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 4 Apr 970, confirmed by "…Fredenando Flainiz…"[942].  He signed King Sancho I's 26 Apr 960 donation to the monastery of Sahagún, and confirmed other documents 11 May 976, 16 Jun 977 and 18 Jan 982[943]. Conde in Salamanca 973.  “Fredenandus Flainiz...” confirmed the charter dated 6 Dec 984 under which “Fafilani presbiteri” donated “uilla...Marin de Mazelleros” to Santiago de León[944].  “Fredenandus Flainiz...” confirmed the charter dated 16 Nov 985 under which King Vermudo II donated “villas in Tierra de Campos” to the church of León[945].  Indications of the property holdings of Fernando Flaínez, especially useful in identifying his daughters, are provided by a much later charter: Alfonso V King of León granted "Kastrum…Gundisalbi…super ripe Zegie territorio Legionense", property “in alia loco Vilaseca”, and “in tertio loco barrio Fontes”, all described as “quantum ibidem obtinuit Fredenandus Flaginiz cum coniuge eius Gunterode", to "Petro Ferdinandi filio" by charter dated 14 Mar 1017[946].  Martínez Sopena deduces from this document that Pedro Fernández was the son of Fernando Flaínez and his wife Gontrodo[947].  This hypothesis does not appear to be correct as other sources (discussed elsewhere in the present document) suggest that Pedro Fernández was the son of Fernando Vermúdez Conde in Cea and his wife Elvira Díaz.  In addition, the donation made by Fernando´s wife Gontrodo of Castrogonzalo (after the death of her presumed daughter Aroza) is difficult to explain if Pedro Fernández was her son.  m GONTRODO, daughter of --- (-after 13 Mar 982).  "Fredinandus Flaini et uxor Guntrodo" sold property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 8 Oct 960[948].  “Ancilla Dei domna Aroza cui cognomento Floridia” donated “villa...Kastro Gundisaluiz...villa Cesari...villa Alcotre...in monte Aureo vineas” to Santiago de León (where she was a nun” by charter dated 13 Mar 982, signed by “Gonterode et filia Auria” not by the donor, confirmed by “Fredenando Flainiz...[949].  Alfonso V King of León granted "Kastrum…Gundisalbi…super ripe Zegie territorio Legionense" to "Petro Ferdinandi filio" by charter dated 14 Mar 1017, which refers to property "in loco barrio de Fontes" obtained by "Fredenandus Flaginiz cum coniuge eius Gunterode"[950].  Fernando & his wife had [three] children: 

(1)       AURIA (-after 13 Mar 982).  “Ancilla Dei domna Aroza cui cognomento Floridia” donated “villa...Kastro Gundisaluiz...villa Cesari...villa Alcotre...in monte Aureo vineas” to Santiago de León (where she was a nun) by charter dated 13 Mar 982, signed by “Gonterode et filia Auria” not by the donor, confirmed by “Fredenando Flainiz...[951].  Martínez Sopena suggests that “Auria, Eldoara...” were daughters of Fernando Flaínez and his wife, on the basis of the various charters cited in this section, which involve Castrogonzalo and “Villanova de Campos” (which he suggests was the same place as “Villaseca”) both named in the 1017 charter which is quoted above[952]

(2)       ELDOARA (-after 23 Oct 973).  “Eldoara” donated “omnia mea que michi dimisit genitore mea domna Gonterode...in Uilla Noua...secus alueum Aratoy” to “domna Ymilo” by charter dated 23 Oct 973, confirmed by “...Fredenandus Flainiz...[953].  Martínez Sopena suggests that “Auria, Eldoara...” were daughters of Fernando Flaínez and his wife, on the basis summarised above[954]

(3)       [[FLORIDIA [Aroza]] (-[before 13 Mar 982]).  “Ancilla Dei domna Aroza cui cognomento Floridia” donated “villa...Kastro Gundisaluiz...villa Cesari...villa Alcotre...in monte Aureo vineas” to Santiago de León (where she was a nun) by charter dated 13 Mar 982, signed by “Gonterode et filia Auria” not by the donor, confirmed by “Fredenando Flainiz...[955].  The editor of the collection suggests that the unusual signatory clause suggests that the donor had died and that the signatories were her executors, although the document does not specify that this is the case.  Another possibility is that there are passsages missing from the text (which also lacks coherence in other parts).  He also explains that “Aroza” or “Alaroza” means “betrothed” in Arabic, suggesting that this may have been a nickname adopted by the donor.  Martínez Sopena suggests that, on the basis of this document, “Aroza” was another daughter of Fernando Flaínez and his wife[956].  A more likely possibility is that Aroza/Floridia was the sister of Gontrodo, and that they were joint heiresses of the properties donated: while Gontrodo was still alive, it is difficult to understand how her daughters could have had sufficient interest in the properties to have donated them in their own names.  The charter dated 14 Mar 1017 (quoted above) clarifies that Fernando Flaínez acquired his interest in these properties from his wife.]

(c)       [VERMUDO Flaínez (-after 1 Jan 943).  "Osorio Monniz, Monnio Gudesteiz, Diaco Romaniz, Monnio Flainiz, Veremudus Flainiz" confirmed the charter dated 1 Jan 943 under which King Ramiro II granted to “Vermudo Nunniz” property confiscated from “Dom Patre[957].  The sequence of names suggests that Vermudo Flaínez may have been the brother of Munio Flaínez.]

MUNIO Flaínez, son of FLAÍN Díaz & his wife --- (-[31 Oct 961/19 Jun 962]).  "Osorio Monniz, Monnio Gudesteiz, Diaco Romaniz, Monnio Flainiz, Veremudus Flainiz" confirmed the charter dated 1 Jan 943 under which King Ramiro II granted to “Vermudo Nunniz” property confiscated from “Dom Patre[962].  "Bagauda cognomento Zidi" donated "terra…in Autario Maurisco" to "Monio Flainiz et uxore tua Froileoba" for Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas by charter dated 23 Dec 947[963].  "Monnio Flainz et uxor Froileuve" bought property "in valle de Laurenzo" by charter dated 29 Dec 947[964].  He confirmed his father-in-law's 13 Aug 949 donation to the monastery of Santiago de Valdávida and his 31 Jan 951 donation to the monastery of Sahagún[965].  The couple are recorded acquiring considerable property in the mountains between Asturias and León between 948 and 962[966].  “Guntina” sold property “in uilla Zissani” to “Munnio Flainizi et uxori uestre Froileuua” by charter dated 17 Apr 955[967].  "Ruderigo" sold property "in Uale Lagonegio" to "Munnio Flayniz et uxore vestre Freyleua" (presumably for donating to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas) by charter dated 31 Oct 961[968]

Munio & his wife had [five] children: 

1.         [FRUELA Muñoz (-after 1 Mar 973).  "Froila Enecozi" sold "eridate…in loco…in Recoquos" to "Froila Monuzi" (presumably for donating to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas) by charter dated 1 Mar 973[975].  No other reference to Fruela Muñoz has been found.  It is possible that "Froila Monuzi" in this charter was an error for "Flaín Monuzi", who is recorded in numerous later charters of Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas.  This possibility is likely especially as it is more likely that the oldest son of Munio Flaínez would have been named Flaín after his paternal grandfather rather than Fruela, a name which is not otherwise recorded in the family.] 

2.         FLAÍN Muñoz (-[998/11 Mar 1003]).  A charter dated 6 Sep 986 records the presence of "Fllaymus Munizi, Assurit Munizi, Aita Scemeniz, Uellasgo Muniz, Lalana" when "…Feia…et Domicio…" confirmed a donation to the monastery of Santa Marina[976].  His regular mentions in documents towards the end of the 10th century suggest that he was a supporter of Vermudo II King of León during the civil war in León[977].  "Fredino et uxor mea Leouina" donated land inherited from "suo patre de Leouina" to "Flaino Monizii et uxor vestra Iusta" (presumably for donating to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas) by charter dated 1 May 987[978].  "Fredino et uxor suam Leobina" sold "terras in…Oretem iusta eglesia Sanctum Andrem" to "Fllayno Munizi et uxorit vestram Iusta Pepizii" [presumably for donation to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas] by charter dated 15 Jul 991[979]Conde: "Elias…mandatore de comite Flaino Monizi" ordered a fine relating to the adultery admitted by "Flaino" by charter dated [22 Apr] 995[980].  [m firstly ([before 975]) his first cousin, JUSTA Fernández, daughter of conde FERNANDO Vermúdez de Cea [León] & his wife condesa Elvira Díaz (before [955]-).  Her parentage is suggested by her husband being named in her mother´s document dated 975[981].  However, the charter dated 15 Jul 1009 which is quoted below shows that all the known children of Flaín Muñoz were born from his marriage to Justa Pépiz, whom he must therefore have married well before 15 Jul 991 when she is first named with her patronymic.  The question is further complicated by a charter dated 26 Feb 1020, under which Fernando Flaínez (son of Flaín Muñoz) donated the monastery and town of Pereda to San Marcos, which states that one of the properties "Sajambre" had belonged to "Fredenando Uermudiz et Flauio Moniz avii et patris nostri"[982].  The only apparent explanation for these two contradictory sources appears to be that Justa Fernández and Justa Pépiz were in fact the same person and that "Pépiz" represented some sort of nickname not a patronymic.]  m [secondly] (before 1 May 987) JUSTA Pépiz, daughter of [983][PEPI Alfonso/PEPI Garvísiz & his wife ---] (-after 15 Jul 1009).  "Fredino et uxor mea Leouina" donated land inherited from "suo patre de Leouina" to "Flaino Monizii et uxor vestra Iusta" [presumably for donating to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas] by charter dated 1 May 987[984].  As discussed above, it is possible that Justa Pépiz was the same person as Flaín´s possible first wife Justa Fernández.  "Fredino et uxor suam Leobina" sold "terras in…Oretem iusta eglesia Sanctum Andrem" to "Fllayno Munizi et uxorit vestram Iusta Pepizii" [presumably for donation to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas] by charter dated 15 Jul 991[985].  ["Justa" exchanged land "in Piniares" with "Adefonso Didaz" by charter dated 6 Mar 997, which names “Monnio Vermudiz” as holder of adjacent property[986]It is not known whether “Justa” in this document was Justa Pépiz.]  "Justa cometissa" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 18 Nov 997[987].  "Iusta Christi ancilla…cum filiis meis Monnio Flainez, Fredenando Flaginez, Petro Flaginez, Geluira et Marina" donated "Uilla Uaica…[subtu]s Penna Meane" to Sahagún, for the soul of "viro meo Flagino Monniz", by charter dated 11 Mar 1003[988].  "Iusta Pepiz[i]…gum filios meos Munnio Flainici et Fredenando Flayniz et Pedrum Flainizi et Gylloira" granted "mediedadem in villa…in terredorio Noanticam in locum…iustas Sanctum Martinum…qui fuit de filia mea Marina que abuit…cum suo iermano Pedru Flainizi" to "nepto meo Flaino Pedrizi", in return for "villa de Uaica" which she donated "ad frater de Parameno" for the soul of "viro meo Flaino Monizi", by charter dated 15 Jul 1009[989].  Conde Flaín & his [first/second] wife had five children:

m ([before 1000]) BRONILDE ---, daughter of [1027][MUNIO Velásquez & his wife Goto ---] (-before 25 Jan 1052).  She appears in documents with her husband from Jun 1006 until before 1056[1028].  Considering the estimated birth date of Fáfila Pérez, son of Pedro Flaínez, Bronilde´s marriage must be dated to a few years earlier than her first documental mention, unless Fáfila was born from an otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage of his father.  "Vicenti et uxor sua Felitia" donated "terras…in loco…in Orede…per terminu de gomitz Frenando Didazi…per terminu de domna Iusta" to "Petru Flainiz et uxor vestra Bronildi" [presumably for donation to Santa María de Otero de las Dueñas] by charter dated 8 Jun 1006[1029]Alfonso V King of León granted "vilas...in Ual de Lorma in tereturio Leonesis", confiscated from “Cotina Fernadiz et filium suum Fredenato Pelagiz...abesaris nostris...et de Didaco Nuniz et uxori sue Gelouira...et de Durabile Uermudiz”, to "Petro Flaginizi et uxore sua Bronildi" by charter dated 18 May 1019[1030].  "Comite Petru Flainici et uxor sua Bronildi" granted property "illo de Durable Vermudiz et de tres suos filios, de Didaco et de Saba et de Martino" to "Froila Sendinizi et uxor tua Rosla in cognomento Geta", in exchange for other property, by charter dated 15 Feb 1029[1031].  She presumably died before 25 Jan 1052 as she is not named in the document of that date which records the donation of her husband and four children to León Cathedral (see above).  "Vicenca…cum viro meo Lalino" sold property "in teritorio…Namo qui fuit de pater nostro Belito de mater nostra Fobe" to "Petru Flainici et uxor vestra Brunildi" by charter dated 9 Apr 1069[1032].  The sale of the property presumably took place several years earlier in view of the likely date of death of Bronilde, wife of Pedro Flaínez, as shown above. 

Pedro & his wife had four children: 

1.         FÁFILA Pérez ([1000 or before]-[1065/4 Sep 1067]).  His birth date is estimated on the assumption that he was not less than 20 years old when first recorded as maiordomo, and bearing in mind the estimated date of his death.  Maiordomo.  “...Fafila Petrez maiordomo...comes Petro Flainiz...” confirmed the charter dated 26 Feb 1022 under which Alfonso V King of León set the limits of hunting rights at Santa María de Obona[1033].  Vermudo III King of León granted property to "Monio" by charter dated 24 May 1030, subscribed by "comes Velasco Almeiuce, comes Pelagyo Froilaz, Petro Flaginiz, Rodorigo Muniuz qui armiger regis, Fafila Petriz pincerna yn palacio, Anagin Veremudiz…"[1034].  “...Fafila Petriz...” subscribed the charter dated 4 Oct 1032 under which King Vermudo III exchanged “villa Lapeto qui fuit de abia mea regina domna Velasquita” with “comes Pelagio Froilaz et uxor vestra comitissa Ildontia Ordoniz” for “villa...Framilani que fuit de Monnio Didaz...in territorio Asma prope domon Sancto Iuliano[1035].  King Vermudo III granted “medietate in villa Cesam...in territorio Legionensis”, which had first been granted to him by “genitori mei domni Adefonsi principis” but appropriated by “domna Exemena ucsor Abdela Romaniz” now in rebellion and confiscated from her and her sons, to “Fafila Petriz” by charter dated 1032[1036]...Fafila Petriz maiorinus...” subscribed the charter dated 17 Feb 1035 under which King Vermudo III recognised the church of Palencia and made donations[1037]...Fafila Petriz...” witnessed the charter dated 24 May 1038 under which Fernando I King of Castile granted “castellum...Vierbele” to “Garcia Eneconis[1038].  “...Fafila Petriz...” confirmed the charter dated 19 Nov 1042 under which "Ermegildo Nunniz…cum uxore mea Adosinda" donated "Uilla de Domno Iohanne medietate et Uilla Ueiga medietate…in territorio Riuulo Sicco" to Sahagún[1039]Ouecu Ruderikiz et uxor mea Zidu” granted "vineas...in Uillade mer in locum...Callelia" to “Fafila Petriz et uxor vestra domna Gudina” by charter dated 26 Mar 1044[1040]Conde.  "Petro Flaginiz…cum filiis meis…Fafila Petriz et Fredenandus Petriz et Didacus Petriz et Scemena Petriz" donated "villas…Orede" to León Cathedral by charter dated 25 Jan 1052[1041].  "Fafila Petriz" granted "villas…in Castrello et in Unica de Fernando Uermudiz…alias…quem abuit de meo pater comite Petro Flainiz et mater mea comitissa domna Bronildi" to "Martino Fafilaz et ad Marina Fafilaz qui estis filiis meis" by charter dated 21 Sep 1057, signed by "Fafila Petriz et uxor mea domina Mumadonna"[1042].  "Fafila Petriz et uxori mea domna Muniadona" sold "villas iuxta ribulo...Orbeco, locum...Fonte Mannane", granted by King Vermudo to "Fafila Petriz", to “Scemeno Uelasquiz” by charter dated 14 May 1060[1043].  "Fafila Petrizi" granted "villa…qui…eridauit de filia mea qui est ad seculo migrata Bronildi…in territorio Luna…" to "afiliato meo Fafila Didazi" by charter dated 2 Apr 1061[1044].  He had presumably died before the donation made in 1067 by his brothers Diego and Fernando to his daughter Cristina.  "Diaco Petriz" exchanged “hereditate quam habeo in Ueiga de Fernan Uermuiz et habui ego eam de fratre meo Fafila Petriz et ille habuit...de sua mulier domna Gutina qua hereditavit de filios que habuerunt” with Sahagún by charter dated 4 Sep 1067[1045]m firstly GOTINA González, daughter of --- (-after 26 Mar 1044).  She is named jointly with her husband in a 1043 document[1046].  “Ouecu Ruderikiz et uxor mea Zidu” granted "vineas...in Uillade mer in locum...Callelia" to “Fafila Petriz et uxor vestra domna Gudina” by charter dated 26 Mar 1044[1047].  "Diaco Petriz" exchanged “hereditate quam habeo in Ueiga de Fernan Uermuiz et habui ego eam de fratre meo Fafila Petriz et ille habuit...de sua mulier domna Gutina qua hereditavit de filios que habuerunt” with Sahagún by charter dated 4 Sep 1067[1048]m secondly (after 26 Mar 1044) MUNIADOMNA, daughter of --- (-after 14 May 1060).  "Fafila Petriz" granted "villas…in Castrello et in Unica de Fernando Uermudiz…alias…quem abuit de meo pater comite Petro Flainiz et mater mea comitissa domna Bronildi" to "Martino Fafilaz et ad Marina Fafilaz qui estis filiis meis" by charter dated 21 Sep 1057, signed by "Fafila Petriz et uxor mea domina Mumadonna"[1049].  "Fafila Petriz et uxori mea domna Muniadona" sold "villas iuxta ribulo...Orbeco, locum...Fonte Mannane", granted by King Vermudo to "Fafila Petriz", to “Scemeno Uelasquiz” by charter dated 14 May 1060[1050].  She may have been Muniadomna, daughter of Munio Fernández & his wife Jimena, if it correct as suggested below that her daughter "Aurodulce" was the same person as María "Aurodulce", who names her grandparents Munio Fernández and Jimena in the charter dated 9 Aug 1064 which is quoted below.  The difficulty with this possible co-identity is the date of her marriage, as the births of the children of Munio Fernández appear to be dated to the late 10th century: one possibility is that they were the grandparents, not parents, of Muniadomna, assuming that "abios" in the 9 Aug 1064 can be interpreted in the sense of more remote ancestors.  Fáfila & his first wife had children:

Fernando & his wife had [eight] children: 

2.         [FERNANDO Fernández (-after [13 Nov 1028]).  His parentage is suggested by the charter dated [13 Nov 1028] under which "Comite Fredelando Pelaioz…cum coniuge mea Gelvira et mater mea donna Gutina" confirmed a donation of property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, with the consent of "neptus mei Fernando Fredinandiz"[1189].  However, Fernando is not named in his parents’ charter dated 26 Feb 1020 which names their other known six sons.] 

3.         FLAÍN Fernández (-[1061/28 May 1065]).  “Fredenandus Flayniz et eius coniuge Geloire” donated “uilla...Pereta decurrente alueo Estola”, and property “in Saliamne in...hereditate qui fuit de Fredenando Uermudiz et Flauio Moniz avii et patris nostri”, to the monks of San Martín, confirmed by “fratres Flaino Fernandiz, Oueco Fernandiz, Petro Fernandiz, Pelagio Fernandiz, Munio Fernandiz, Didaco Fernandiz”, by charter dated 26 Feb 1020[1190]...Fredinando Flaginiz comite...Petro Flaginiz, Flagino Fredinandiz...” witnessed the charter dated 24 May 1038 under which Fernando I King of Castile granted “castellum...Vierbele” to “Garcia Eneconis[1191]Conde 1038.  "…Flagino Fernandiz, Munio Fernandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 17 Feb 1039 under which Fernando I King of León donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Cardeñas[1192].  "Flaino Fernandiz et uxor mea domna Sancia" donated "villa que fuit de…comitissa domna Flamula…in loco…Turio" to León Cathedral by charter dated 28 Oct 1046[1193].  "…Flagino Fernandiz, Munio Fernandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 31 Aug 1050 under which Ferdinand I King of Castile confirmed the union of the monastery of San Martín del Río with San Pedro de Cardeñas[1194].  "Fronildi prolem Pelagii" donated "monasterios…de Uerga…Sancti Iohannis…in ripa fluvii Estole partem terciam que fuit de avio meo Fredenando Veremudiz et in Sauero…Sancti Felicis" to León Cathedral by charter dated 1058, confirmed by "Flaino Fredenandiz comes, Martino Flaginiz, Didaco Petriz, Petro Romaniz…Petrus Gundisaluiz"[1195].  It appears that he led a rebellion against Fernando I King of Castile and León in 1061, for which his property was confiscated[1196].  Alfonso VI King of Castile donated "hereditates quos ganabit pater meus de comite Flagino Fredenandiz…secus flubio Estola, territorio Aquilare" to "soror mea domina Urracca prolis Fredenandiz" by charter dated 15 Oct 1071[1197]m firstly SANCHA ---, daughter of --- (-after 28 Oct 1046).  "Flaino Fernandiz et uxor mea domna Sancia" donated "villa que fuit de…comitissa domna Flamula…in loco…Turio" to León Cathedral by charter dated 28 Oct 1046[1198].  This charter suggests that Sancha, wife of Flaín Fernández, was descended from Flámula, who has been identified as the wife of Fruela Gutiérrez and maternal grandmother of Sancha Sánchez, wife of Osorio Díaz.  If that relationship is correct, the chronology suggests that Sancha must have been a remote descendant, maybe Flámula´s great great grand-daughter.  Another possibility is that the property owned by Flámula had been sold or otherwise transferred to an ancestor of Sancha.  m secondly (after 1046) TODA Fernández, daughter of FERNANDO --- & his wife --- (-after 23 Apr 1075).  "Tota et filiis meis Fernando Flainiz et Martino Flainiz" donated property to León Cathedral by charter dated 28 May 1065[1199].  She confirmed the 23 Apr 1075 donation of her son Fernando[1200].  Flaín & his second wife had three children:

a)         FERNANDO Flaínez (-after 1106).  "Tota et filiis meis Fernando Flainiz et Martino Flainiz" donated property to León Cathedral by charter dated 28 May 1065[1201].  “Martino Flainz et Fredenando Flainz” sold "divisione...de villa...Farauellos subtus Otero Maurisco territorio Ceia" to Sahagún by charter dated 20 Feb 1072[1202]Fredinandus Flainiz” donated "hereditatem...in locum...Uilla Farauellos subtus Aucter Morisco iuxta Ceia” to Sahagún by charter dated 1 Jul 1073[1203]Alférez of Alfonso VI King of Castile 14 Mar 1075 to 17 Oct 1077[1204].  It appears that he was disgraced in some way as he received no reward for his services and was evicted from his lands in 1078.  [Comes Martino Flainz...cum germano suo” donated “divisionem in villa...Farauellos” to Sahagún by charter dated 25 Mar 1091[1205].  It is not known whether Fernando was the brother who donated this property with Martín Flaínez.]  “Fernandus Flainiz” sold "hereditatem...habeo de parentibus meis in Uilla Toso" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Feb 1101[1206].  [“Martino Petriz...cum uxore mea Maria Fernandiz et Fernando Flainz” donated "hereditate...in Uilla Orelli iuxta riuulo...Gisinati" to Sahagún by charter dated 8 Jan 1106[1207].  The joint donation under this charter suggests that the property was owned by the donors together, presumably by inheritance.  Martín Pérez and his wife have not been identified in the family of Fernando Flaínez.  It is possible therefore that this charter does not refer to the same Fernando Flaínez who was the son of Flaín Fernández.]  “Fernando Flainz” donated "in terra de Legione...et in Campos vel de Castella...quantum habeo...inter meos germanos" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Jan 1106, which also provides for the case in which he married and had children[1208]

b)         ONEGA Flaínez (-after 1097).  King Alfonso VI names her in 1097 as having been guilty of an unspecified crime[1209]

a)         JIMENA Muñoz (-after 21 Jan 1039).  An undated charter at Corias, which records the foundation of “monasterium Sancti Micaeli de Legione”, recites that “Munio Munionis comes, filius comitis Munionis Roderici cognomento Canis” and his first wife “filiam comitis Munionis de Somedo...Xemena Moniz” had “filiam...Xemena Moniz”, adding that she married “Munionis Roderici comitis[1279].  "Munnio Ruderiquiz…cum uxori mee Scemena, ploris Munnio Munniz" exchanged "villa de Flausas in Asturiciense valle Lena…qui fuit de patre nostro Munnio Munniz", as well as another property "secundam dedit eam rex domno Adefonso ad Munnio Munniz", with "Froyla Munniz et uxori vestre Gunterodo" by charter dated 21 Jan 1039[1280]m MUNIO Rodríguez, son of RODRIGO --- & his wife --- (-after 21 Jan 1039).

H.      GÓMEZ FAMILY (SALDAÑA and CARRIÓN)

 

 

The origins of this family, known as Beni Gómez both in Muslim and Christian Spain, are obscure.  The following possible ancestry of Diego Muñoz Conde de Saldaña is suggested by Torres[1301].  The county of Saldaña was semi-independent, a territory between the county of Castile, the county of Cea and the county of Liébana, the last named being taken over around [970] by the count of Saldaña who thereby became one of the most powerful nobles of the time.  The family's prestige is demonstrated by the marriages into the families of the counts of Castile and kings of León.  The comital family of Carrión, and their connection with the benedictine monastery of San Zoilo, was studied by Gonzalo Martínez Díez who dispels the legendary reports concerning the family which were developed by later chroniclers[1302].  He dates the first documented appearance of this family, in the chronicle of Ibn Hayyan, to 933[1303]

 

 

[GÓMEZ Díaz, son of ---.  Señor de Mixancas, Álava. 

m ---.  The name of Gómez's wife is not known. 

Gómez & his wife had [two] children:] 

1.         [MUNIO Gómez .  910.  Torres suggests that he was the same person as “Abolmondar Albo”[1304].  This latter person is named in the Cronica de Sampiro which records "Nunius Fredenandi, Abolmondar Albus et suus filius Didacus, et Fredenandi Ansuri filius" as those counts who governed "Burgos" and who were captured by King Ordoño II "in riuo…Carrion, loco…Tebulare", dateable to [922/23] from the context of the passage[1305].  However, “Abolmondar Albo” is more likely identified as Rodrigo Díaz, son of Diego Rodríguez “Porcelos” (see the document CASTILE COUNTS & KINGS).  m ---.  The name of Munio´s wife is not known.]  Munio & his wife had [four] children: 

a)         [OSORIO Muñoz (-after 3 Apr 945).  Osorio Monniz...” confirmed the charter dated 19 Dec 937 under which King Ramiro II granted “hereditatem de homicidanes de uilla Matella qui occiderunt suprino nostro Odoario Didazi” to "Hermegildus"[1306].  "Osorio Monniz, Monnio Gudesteiz, Diaco Romaniz, Monnio Flainiz, Veremudus Flainiz" confirmed the charter dated 1 Jan 943 under which King Ramiro II granted to “Vermudo Nunniz” property confiscated from “Dom Patre[1307].  "Ranimirus rex, Ossorio Munniz, Didacus Munniz, Gisubado Braolioniz, Virmudus Nunniz, Abaiube iben Tepite, Recemirus iben December" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 11 Nov 944[1308].  "Ranimirus rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 29 Mar 945, subscribed by "Veremudus rex proles Adefonsi principis, Ordonius proles regis, Sancius frater Ordonius proles regis, Osorio Munniz, Assur Fernandiz, Aurelius Baroncelli"[1309].  "Ranimiro rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 3 Apr 945, witnessed by "Osorius Munuzi…"[1310].  Martínez Díez points out that opinion is divided whether Osorio Muñoz was the brother of conde Diego Muñoz, the relationship being suggested by Pérez de Urbel (based on Diego Muñoz calling one of his sons Osorio) and Montenegro, but considered improbable by Justiniano Rodríguez[1311].] 

b)         DIEGO Muñoz (-[15 May 951/952]).  "Ranimirus rex, Ossorio Munniz, Didacus Munniz, Gisubado Braolioniz, Virmudus Nunniz, Abaiube iben Tepite, Recemirus iben December" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 11 Nov 944[1312]Conde de Saldaña.

c)         [VERMUDO Muñoz (-after 24 Sep 946).  “...Didago Monniz, Vermudo Moniz, Gomez Moniz...” confirmed the charter dated 24 Sep 946 under which King Ramiro II donated "villa...Perales et Volpiare et Villa Rezmiro secundum obtinuit illas Gundisalbo Moniz" to Vega[1313].  Their contiguous names in the subscription list in this charter suggest that Diego, Vermudo and Gómez Muñoz way have been brothers.] 

d)         [GÓMEZ Muñoz (-after 26 Apr 960).  Montenegro has suggested that Gómez Muñoz was the brother of conde Diego Muñoz[1314].  “...Didago Monniz, Vermudo Moniz, Gomez Moniz...” confirmed the charter dated 24 Sep 946 under which King Ramiro II donated "villa...Perales et Volpiare et Villa Rezmiro secundum obtinuit illas Gundisalbo Moniz" to Vega[1315].  "…Gomez Monniz comes…Gomes Didaz…" subscribed the charter dated 26 Apr 960 under which Sancho King of Castile donated property to Sahagún[1316].  The document does not refer to his county, but it is possible that he succeeded his brother as Conde de Saldaña, and was in turn succeeded by his nephew Gómez Díaz[1317].] 

2.         [DIEGO Gómez .  There is no proof of the existence of this Diego Gómez apart from the first name and patronymic of his supposed son Nepociano Díaz.  m ---.  The name of Diego´s wife is not known.  Diego & his wife had three possible children]: 

a)         [NEPOCIANO Díaz (-after 28 Jan [929]).  It is likely that Nepociano Díaz belonged to the same family as the later Nepociano Díaz, who is assumed to be the son of the elder Nepociano's supposed first cousin Diego Muñoz (see below) although there is no proof that this is correct.  He confirmed the 28 Jan [929] donation to the monastery of Santa María de Lara by Fernando García, later Conde de Castilla, and his mother Muniadomna[1318].]  same person as...?  NEPOCIANO Díaz )Conde.  García Álvarez cites an undated spurious charter in the Tumbo de Samos, which records that “la vila de Sáa en la valle de Armea, cerca de Sarria” had belonged to “doña Ildoncia, hija del rey Ramiro”, after whose death it passed “a su nepto Vermudo” who granted it to “su mujer Guntroda”, from whom it passed to “su sobrino Fruela, hijo del rey Alfonso” who gave it “al rey Ramiro” who granted it to “su hermana Auria y al conde Nepociano Díaz[1319].  The chronology dictates that this Nepociano Díaz could not have been the same person as Nepociano Díaz who is named in a charter dated 18 Jan 982 (see below).  m AUREA, daughter of [ORDOÑO II King of León & his [first/second] wife Elvira Menéndez.  García Álvarez cites an undated spurious charter in the Tumbo de Samos, which records that “la vila de Sáa en la valle de Armea, cerca de Sarria” had belonged to “doña Ildoncia, hija del rey Ramiro”, after whose death it passed “a su nepto Vermudo” who granted it to “su mujer Guntroda”, from whom it passed to “su sobrino Fruela, hijo del rey Alfonso” who gave it “al rey Ramiro” who granted it to “su hermana Auria y al conde Nepociano Díaz[1320].   [Nepociano & his wife had one child:]

b)         [FERNANDO Díaz (-after 15 Mar 942).  He confirmed the 1 May 932 judgment of Fernando González Conde de Castilla relating to the monastery of Cardeñas and Conde Fernando's 15 Mar 942 to the monastery of San Pedro de Berlangas[1322].] 

c)         [GÓMEZ Díaz (-after 1 May 932).  He confirmed the 1 May 932 judgment of Fernando González Conde de Castilla relating to the monastery of Cardeñas, with his supposed brother Fernando Díaz[1323].] 

 

 

conde DIEGO Muñoz, son of [MUNIO Gómez] & his wife --- (-[15 May 951/952])The chronicle of Ibn Hayyan records the rebellions of "los condes Banu Gómez y Ansúrez contra su rey, el tirano Ramiro hijo de Ordoño, en apoyo de su hermano Alfonso", dated to 933[1324]Martínez Díez identifies "Banu Gómez" as conde Diego Muñoz[1325].  Diego Muñoz (without the comital title) subscribed the charter dated 1 Nov 936 under which Ramiro II King of León donated properties belonging to his father to the monastery of San Isidro de Dueñas[1326].  “Didasco Moniz...cum coniuge mea Tegridia” founded the monastery of San Román de Entrepeñas by charter dated 940, witnessed by “Tegridia...Monmo, Gomez, Ieluira, Ossorio...[1327].  "Diaco Monniz" donated a bust "Picones" at "Cansoles" to Sahagún by charter dated 13 Mar 941[1328].  "Ranimirus rex, Ossorio Munniz, Didacus Munniz, Gisubado Braolioniz, Virmudus Nunniz, Abaiube iben Tepite, Recemirus iben December" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 11 Nov 944[1329].  Until the early 940s he was a supporter of the kings of León, signing in 941 the pact between King Ramiro II and the Caliph.  The Cronica de Sampiro records that "Fredenandus Gundissalui et Didacus Munionis" rebelled against King Ramiro II, who captured them and imprisoned them "unum in Legione, alterum in Gordone"[1330], dated to [943/44] by Torres[1331].  "Ranimiro rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 3 Apr 945, witnessed by "Fredenandus Gundesalviz, Didacus Munniz…"[1332].  "Ranimiro rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 3 Apr 945, witnessed by "…Didaco Muniz…"[1333].  “...Didago Monniz, Vermudo Moniz, Gomez Moniz...” confirmed the charter dated 24 Sep 946 under which King Ramiro II donated "villa...Perales et Volpiare et Villa Rezmiro secundum obtinuit illas Gundisalbo Moniz" to Vega[1334]Conde de Saldaña [946/50].  "Fredinandus Gundisalviz comes Castelle, Didacus Monnioz comes Saldanie, Vermudus Nunez comes in Ceie, Pelagio Gundisalviz comes, Osorio Gutierriz comes, Roderico Gutierriz comes, Piloti Gebuldiz comes, Fredinando Assurez comes…" subscribed the charter dated 17 Jun 950 under which Ramiro II King of León donated property to the monastery of Cea[1335].  His last documented appearance is as witness to King Ordoño III's donation to the monastery of Sahagún 15 May 951[1336]

i)          [MUNIO Muñoz .  Martínez Díez suggests that Munio Muñoz was the son of Munio Gómez[1392].  However, it is possible that this was the same person as conde Munio Muñoz, son of Munio Rodríguez "Canis" and his wife Anderquina Froílaz (see above).  Conde.  "Monnio Monniz comes, Petro Froilaz comes, Diaco Fernandiz comes…" subscribed the charter dated 30 Jun 1019 which records a donation to Sahagún[1393].]

5.         FERNANDO Díaz ([939/40 or after]-after 1003).  His absence from his supposed father´s charter dated 940 indicates that Fernando must not have been born then, or have been an infant considered too young to be named.  Fernando Díaz confirmed documents relating to the monastery of Sahagún 11 May 976, 16 Jun 977 and 1 Sep 986[1409], the last being the donation of his supposed brother Osorio Díaz, and the other two also being confirmed by his supposed brothers Gómez and Osorio Díaz.

6.         GUNTRODO Díaz ([939/40 or after]-after 21 Mar 1006).  Her absence from her supposed father´s charter dated 940 indicates that Fernando must not have been born then, or have been an infant considered too young to be named.  "Gunterodo Dea dicata, Fredenando Didaci, Garsea Gomize, Velasco Gomize, Sanzo Gomez, Monnio Gomez, Fafila Fredenandiz, Osorio Fre[de]nandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Sep 986 under which Osorio Díaz donated "villa de Arcello" to Sahagún[1410]"Ablavel Godestioz et Guntrodo uxor" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 27 Nov 986[1411], although the date of this document appears to contradict the previous charter dated 1 Sep 986 which records "Gunterodo Dea dicata" as having professed religion.  "Ablauel Godestioz et Gunteroda" donated the church of San Julián y Santa Basilisa to the monastery of Santa Eulalia by charter dated 1 Jun 988, confirmed by "Gunteroda…"[1412].  "Gunterode" donated "villa…in territorio Legionensi…Uncina" to Sahagún by charter dated 21 Mar 1006, which explains that King Vermudo III had granted her the property from those confiscated from "Ablauel Gudesteiz…cum coniuge sua…Gunterode"[1413]m ABLAVEL Godestéiz, son of --- (-after 1 Jun 988).  “Nebzanus Didaci comes, Garsea Fernandiz comes, Gomiz Didaz comes, Osoiro Didaz comes, Ablauelli Gudesteoz, Gomice Fredinandiz...” confirmed the charter dated 12-13 Nov 971 under which “Abholkacem Arias” donated “uilla...in Uilla Cesane” to the monastery of San Martín de Valdepueblo[1414].  “...Ablavel Gudesteoz...” confirmed the charter dated 27 Mar 976 under which “comes Froyla Velaz...cum coniuge mea comitissa Gislavara” donated “...monasterio Sanctæ Mariæ de Cartavio...” to San Salvador de Léon[1415].  “...Ablauel Gudesteoz...” confirmed the charter dated 16 Nov 985 under which King Vermudo II donated “villas in Tierra de Campos” to the church of León[1416].  “...Auelauel Gudesteoz...” subscribed the charter dated 1 Jan 986 under which Vermudo II King of León confirmed “mandationem in territorio Bubalo, Ablutinos cum Barra” to Celanova[1417].  "Ablauel Godestioz et Gunteroda" donated the church of San Julián y Santa Basilisa to the monastery of Santa Eulalia by charter dated 1 Jun 988, confirmed by "Gunteroda, Ziti Fortes, Gartia Gundisabiz, Nunnu Sarraciniz, Vela Enegozi, Gudesteo Monuzi, Tellu Sarracinizi, Nuno Sarracinizi, [Lu]mes Seruandiz, Uermudo Uermudiz, Roderiquo Smazi, Ovequo Fortuniz"[1418]Alfonso V King of León sold "villa...que fuit de...Ablabel et Gunterodo...in provincia Asturiense secus albeo Leena, villa...Clausas" to "Monio Muniuzi", explaining that “quidam comes in Spania...Ablabel et uxor eius Gunterodo...absque filios” had rebelled “sub regimine Ueremudti regis” and joined García Fernández Conde de Castilla, by charter dated 13 Apr 1012[1419].  Ablavel & his wife had [one child]:

7.         [NUÑO Díaz (-after 21 Jul 974).  “...Gomiz Didaci...Fredinandus Didaci...Nunus Didaci, Nepzanus Didaci, Froila Didaz...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[1422].] 

8.         [NEPOCIANO Díaz ([940 or after]-after 18 Jan 982).  If Nepociano and Gonzalo were the sons of Diego Muñoz they were presumably born after 940 as they are not named in their father's document of that date.  Although there is no proof that Nepociano Díaz was the son of conde Diego Muñoz, Nepociano confirmed documents relating to the monastery of Sahagún 11 May 976 and 18 Jan 982[1423], the former also confirmed by his supposed brothers Gómez, Osorio and Fernando Díaz, and the latter by Osorio Díaz.  Although there were other possible "Diego" fathers at the time, none appears to have been so well connected as Diego Muñoz.  “...Nepotianus Didaz...” confirmed the charter dated 17 Sep 968 under which Ramiro III King of León donated “de comitatu de Mera III, de Nallare IV...et Parriga media et IV de comitato Nemitos” to Sobrado[1424].  “...Nepotianus Didazi...” confirmed the charter dated 19 Feb 969 under which “Geloira” [identified as Elvira daughter of King Ramiro II] granted “villas...Kampos circa Kastro Ardon” to “tio nostro Azenari Purizelliz et uxori uestre Urraka[1425].  "Giloira Ranimiri principis filia" donated property to the monastery of Sahagún by charter dated 4 Apr 970, confirmed by "…Nepotianus Didaci, Froila Didaci…"[1426].  Nepociano confirmed the 12 Jul 970 donation of García Fernández Conde de Castilla to the monastery of Arlanza[1427]Conde.  “Nebzanus Didaci comes, Garsea Fernandiz comes, Gomiz Didaz comes, Osoiro Didaz comes, Ablauelli Gudesteoz, Gomice Fredinandiz...” confirmed the charter dated 12-13 Nov 971 under which “Abholkacem Arias” donated “uilla...in Uilla Cesane” to the monastery of San Martín de Valdepueblo[1428].  “Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 973 under which Ramiro III King of León donated property to the monastery of San Cipriano [de Valdesaz][1429].  “...Gomiz Didaci...Fredinandus Didaci...Nunus Didaci, Nepzanus Didaci, Froila Didaz...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[1430].  “...Gomize Didaci...Osorius Didaci...Nepotianus Didaci...” confirmed the charter dated 10 Dec 975 under which King Ramiro III donated “hereditatem de duobus fratribus...Salbator et Mahamuthi”, which had been confiscated for homicide, to “Sauaricus diaconus[1431].  “...Nepotianus Didaci mayordomus...” confirmed the charter dated 27 Mar 976 under which “comes Froyla Velaz...cum coniuge mea comitissa Gislavara” donated “...monasterio Sanctæ Mariæ de Cartavio...” to San Salvador de Léon[1432].  "Ranimirus rex" donated property to Sahagún by charter dated 18 Jan 977, confirmed by "…Nepotianus Didaz…"[1433].  “...Nepotianus Didaci...” confirmed the charter dated 8 Jan 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “Uillas de Asinos” to Sisnando Bishop of León[1434].  “Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “uilla de Sancti Uictori” to the monastery of San Cipriano de Valdesaz[1435].]  m ---.  The name of Nepociano´s wife is not known.  Nepociano & his wife had [one possible son]: 

a)         [OSORIO --- ].  There is no proof that Osorio, father of Nepociano Osorio, was the son of Nepociano Díaz but the use of this unusual first name Nepociano suggests that there may be a close connection.  m ---.  The name of Osorio´s wife is not known.  Assuming that Diego Osórez was her son as suggested below, she was MARÍA ---, daughter of --- (-before 1046): “Diego Osorio” donated “como testamentario de su madre doña María...la villa de Borres” to “Pelayo Díaz” by charter dated 1046[1436].  Osorio & his wife had [three] children:

ii)         [NEPOCIANO Osórez (-before 1040).  There is no proof that Nepociano Osórez was related to Nepociano Díaz, although the unusual name indicates a connection.  Nepociano Osórez was probably the right age to have been the grandson of Nepociano Díaz.  “...Adefonsso Osoriz, Nepotiano Osoriz...” confirmed the charter dated 26 Feb 1022 under which Alfonso V King of León set the limits of hunting rights at Santa María de Obona[1439].  “...Nepotiano Osoriz...” subscribed the charter dated 6 Aug 1031 under which King Vermudo III granted “villa...Regos territorio Legionense” to “comite Froyla Moinioz et uxor tua Gunterodo[1440]...Adefonsi Osoriz, Nepociano Osoriz...Didacus Osoriz...” confirmed the charter dated 28 Mar 1032 under which King Vermudo III exchanged properties with “comite Piniolo et comitissa Ildoncia[1441]Alférez 1032 to 9 Jun 1037[1442].  “...Nebotiano Osoriz armigerium regis...” subscribed the charter dated 9 Jun 1037 under which King Vermudo III granted jurisdiction over its inhabitants to Celanova[1443].]  m as her first husband, MUNIADOMNA Godestéiz, daughter of GODESTEO Díaz & his wife Teresa Muñoz ([1005/15]-after 2 Apr 1083).  She married secondly (before 6 Mar 1042) as his second wife, conde Munio Alfonso"Momadonna filia Gudesteo Didaz" donated "in Planctatella…mea racione…[et] de parte de comite domno Monnio habeo per dotem…et illas que filia mea Taresa de patre suo Nebzano Osoriz venit" to Sahagún by charter dated 13 Mar 1049[1444].  "Domna Mamadona" donated "villa…Pilella in Ualle Matrigali…de viro suo Nepzano Osoriz…villa…Fonte Foiolo…de viro meo Munnio Adefonso ganavit illa in sua vita post morte de sua mulier domna Goto…et ad suo germano Guterri Adefonso" to León Cathedral, recording that "postea ipse comite mulier" had "duos filios Iohanne Muniz et Petro Muniz" who both predeceased her, by charter dated 28 Sep 1066[1445].  "Comitissa Momadonna" donated “palacios...habeo...de viro meo comite Monnio Afonso...in monte de Abneza...racione que fuit de germana de viro meo domna Enderquina...in Fontezellas medietatem...in Gordaliza...in Uallezello...in flumine Pisoriga, in Planctatella terciam porcionem...de patre meo Gudesteo Diaz...solares de Planctatella populent in alia divisa que fuit de fratre meo Diaco Gudesteiz, filios de Petro Ouequiz” to Sahagún, for the souls of “viro meo et de filio meo Petro Monniz”, by charter dated 2 Apr 1083[1446]Nepociano & his wife had one child:

FERNANDO Díaz, son of DIEGO Muñoz Conde de Saldaña & his wife Tegridia --- ([939/40 or after]-after 1003).  His absence from his supposed father´s charter dated 940 indicates that Fernando must not have been born then, or have been an infant considered too young to be named.  Fernando Díaz confirmed documents relating to the monastery of Sahagún 11 May 976, 16 Jun 977 and 1 Sep 986[1457], the last being the donation of his supposed brother Osorio Díaz, and the other two also being confirmed by his supposed brothers Gómez and Osorio Díaz.  "Gunterodo Dea dicata, Fredenando Didaci, Garsea Gomize, Velasco Gomize, Sanzo Gomez, Monnio Gomez, Fafila Fredenandiz, Osorio Fre[de]nandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Sep 986 under which Osorio Díaz donated "villa de Arcello" to Sahagún[1458]Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 973 under which Ramiro III King of León donated property to the monastery of San Cipriano [de Valdesaz][1459].  “...Gomiz Didaci...Fredinandus Didaci...Nunus Didaci, Nepzanus Didaci, Froila Didaz...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[1460].  “Fredenando Didazi, Petro Fredenandiz, Nepzano Didaz, Gomiz Fredenandiz, Froeila Didadidaz, Garsea Purizellize” confirmed the charter dated 24 Nov 978 under which King Ramiro III donated “uilla de Sancti Uictori” to the monastery of San Cipriano de Valdesaz[1461]

[Three possible brothers:]

1.         NUÑO Miréllez (-after 12 Jan 980).  "...Nunnus Mirelli..." signed the charter for Sahagún dated 19 Aug 957[1581].  "...Nunno Mirelliz..." signed the charter for Sahagún dated 20 Jan 962[1582].  “...Nunu Mirelliz, Tello Mirelliz...” confirmed the charter dated 19 Feb 969 under which “Geloira” [identified as Elvira daughter of King Ramiro II] granted “villas...Kampos circa Kastro Ardon” to “tio nostro Azenari Purizelliz et uxori uestre Urraka[1583].  “...Nunus Mirelli...” confirmed the charter dated 21 Jul 974 under which King Ramiro III donated the monastery of Santos Justo y Pastor de Rozuela to Ariendo monastery, previously granted to “condam Sendino presbitero, Puricelly pigno qui hunc pontifice tum sedis huius tenens compto[1584].  "Nuno Mirelliz...Adosinda uxor Nuno Mirelliz" and their children "Guter, Tello, Fredenando, Ermeildo, Goto" donated "villa de Castellanos" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Jan 980[1585].  His identity as the ancestor of Otrosia is deduced from the charter dated 13 Mar 1045 under which "Monio Adefonso, Guter Adefonso, Monio Muniz, Petro Muniz, Osorio Osoriz" donated "quod visabus noster Nunnus Mirelliz construxit monasterium in territorio Bericense…Sancta Lucidia…ipse abius noster Nunnus Murelliz" to Astorga Cathedral[1586], read together with the charter dated 15 May 1052 under which "Osorio Osoriz…cum uxori mea Munnia" donated "villa…Sancti Pelagii…in territorio Astoricense" to León Cathedral, for the souls of "fratres meos…Munniu Iohannes et Iohanne Iohannes"[1587]m ADOSINDA ---, daughter of --- (-after 12 Jan 980).  "Nuno Mirelliz...Adosinda uxor Nuno Mirelliz" and their children "Guter, Tello, Fredenando, Ermeildo, Goto" donated "villa de Castellanos" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Jan 980[1588].  Nuño & his wife had [six] children:

d)         ERMEGILDO Núñez (-after 1 Sep 986).  "Nuno Mirelliz...Adosinda uxor Nuno Mirelliz" and their children "Guter, Tello, Fredenando, Ermeildo, Goto" donated "villa de Castellanos" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Jan 980[1592]"...Ermeildus Nunniz…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Sep 986 under which Osorio Díaz donated "villa de Arcello" to Sahagún[1593].  From a chronological point of view, it is possible that he was the father of Nuño Ermegíldez and Osorio Ermegíldez (see Part B, Ermegíldez family). 

e)         GOTO Núñez .  "Nuno Mirelliz...Adosinda uxor Nuno Mirelliz" and their children "Guter, Tello, Fredenando, Ermeildo, Goto" donated "villa de Castellanos" to Sahagún by charter dated 12 Jan 980[1594]

f)          [--- .  The family relationship between Nuño Miréllez and the four daughters named below is confirmed by the charters quoted in this section.  It is likely that this person was the same as one of the other children of Nuño who are named above.  m [firstly] ---.  The name of the [first] wife is not known.  The chronology of the children suggests that his daughter María must have been considerably older than his other daughters, and so probably born from an earlier marriage.  m [secondly] ---.  The name of the [second] wife is not known.  --- & his [first] wife had one child: 

i)          MARÍA (-after 1031)Adefonsus prolix Didacus sive coniuge mee...Maria...aut filiis nostris” donated “vinia...in territorio Levanense” [Liébana] to Santillana del Mar by charter dated 16 Nov 1021[1595]Although her origin is uncertain, Martínez Sopena highlights that her son Munio Alfonso referred to property inherited from his "abio…Nuño Miréllez", pointing out that, from a chronological point of view, it would be more consistent if he had been Munio´s great-grandfather[1596].  This refers to two documents.  Firstly, "Monnio Afonso" donated "populatione sub carrera in Uilla Ueica…ego comparavi de domna Maria…et illa serna que fuit de meo abolo Nunno Mirelliz" by charter dated 11 Feb 1042[1597]Secondly, the charter dated 13 Mar 1045 under which "Monio Adefonso, Guter Adefonso, Monio Muniz, Petro Muniz, Osorio Osoriz" donated "quod visabus noster Nunnus Mirelliz construxit monasterium in territorio Bericense…Sancta Lucidia…ipse abius noster Nunnus Murelliz" to Astorga Cathedral[1598].  Bearing in mind the other documents which are quoted in this section, particularly those relating to Otrosia (see below), it is probable that María was her father´s daughter by an early marriage.  "…Maria comitissa, Munnio Afonso, Guttier Afonso, Garsia Afonso" confirmed the charter dated 24 Feb 1028 under which "Sarrazino presbiter" donated "ecclesia Sancti Iuliani et Baselisse…in villa…Demar" to Sahagún[1599].  The absence of her husband implies that he had died before this date.  m ALFONSO Díaz, son of [DIEGO --- & his wife ---] (-[8 Nov 1024/24 Feb 1028]). 

--- & his [second] wife had three children: 

ii)         GOTO (-after 1052).  Gutierre Alfonso and his wife Goto are named in a charter for Sahagún dated Dec 1031[1600]"Domna Tegridia comitissa" granted property "in villa Aquilare…terra de illa comitissa domna Ofreisa…solare de filiis aut de nietos de comite Guttierre Adifonso et de meas germanas domna Goto et domna Ofreisa" to "Annaya Peitriz" by charter dated 25 Dec 1047[1601]"Gutier Adefonsus comes…cum uxor mea Gotto" donated half of the villa of Fuentecillas to Sahagún monastery by charter dated 1052[1602]m (before Dec 1031) GUTIERRE Alfonso, son of ALFONSO Díaz & his wife María --- (-after 1059).
