INTRODUCTION

 

 

This document sets out Spanish noble families in the kingdoms of Castile and León from the late 11th century to the later 14th century.  Earlier noble families in northern Spain are shown in the document ASTURIAS, GALICIA, LEON NOBILITY, and later families in CASTILE NOBILITY (2).  The allocation of different families to these three documents is inevitably approximate. 

 

The difficulties connected with reconstructing the families of the nobility in medieval Spain are discussed in ASTURIAS, GALICIA, LEON NOBILITY.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos provides an additional source of information for the period which is dealt with in the present document[1].  Conde Pedro was the illegitimate son of Diniz King of Portugal.  He died in 1354, so the work can therefore be dated to shortly before this date.  It is a difficult document, riddled with errors, especially relating to the early generations.  For example, the early history of the Traba family, as set out in the Nobiliario, is completely inconsistent with reconstructions based on charter material which, presumably, is more reliable.  However, the Nobiliario is the only surviving source which confirms many of the family relationships of the nobility in 13th and 14th century Castile and León.  It therefore cannot be dismissed, but should be used cautiously. 

 

Another source which is useful from a geographical point of view is the "mini-census" of early 12th century Spanish nobility which is found in the document setting out the acts of the council of Oviedo, supposedly held in 1115[2].  Barton points out that the document is spurious and so the reliability of its contents should be considered accordingly[3].  However, it nevertheless provides good indications of the geographical bases of different nobles at the time.

A.      SEÑORES de VALLE

 

 

Pedro Díaz de Valle was an important figure during the reign of Urraca Queen of Castile and was awarded the tenencia of Torres de León and the fortress of Valle de Mansilla.  He is possibly identified with "…Petrus Didaci…" who is named in the list of nobles "ex terræ Tinegiæ" (Asturias de Tineo) in the spurious document relating to the supposed council of Oviedo in 1115[4].  His married daughter Gontrodo caught the attention of King Alfonso VII and became his mistress, although this marked the beginning of her father's downfall.  He rebelled against the king and was exiled.  The origins of the father of Pedro cannot be traced, although it is known that he held land at San Salvador de Rode in Asturias.

c)         FACUNDO Díaz (-after 14 Jul 1098).  “Gotina Petriz...nepta de...Gotina Gutterriz et de Monnio [Iohannes]...cum filiis meis Petro Diaz, Fernando Diaz, Facundo Diaz” confirmed donations made to “monasteriolum...Sancti Michaelis...in Gallekellos” made by “aua mea domna Gotina” by charter dated 14 Jul 1089[50]

a)         ORDOÑO Álvarez .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias, D. Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez"[61].  Tenente of Soberrón, Aguilar, and Pola de Llanes between 1222 and 1229.

Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez"[62]

-        see below

c)         ALFONSO Álvarez de Asturias .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias, D. Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez"[63]m MARÍA Rodríguez de Lara, daughter of RODRIGO Álvarez de Lara, Señor de Alcalá & his wife Sancha Díaz de Cifuentes.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "Fernan Rodriguez, Diego Frojaz, Sancho Rodriguez, D. Maria Rodriguez de Ribas, D. Sancha Rodriguez" as the children of "D. Rodrigo Alvarez" and his wife "D. Sancha Diaz", adding in a later passage that "Alonso Alvarez de Noroña" married "D. Maria Roiz de Ribas"[64]Alfonso & his wife had one child: 

i)          TERESA Alfonso .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Teresa Alonso" as the child of "Alonso Alvarez de Noroña" and his wife "D. Maria Roiz de Ribas", adding in an earlier passage that "D. Ruy de Villalobos" married "D. Teresa Alonso"[65]Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage[66]m ([1295]) RODRIGO Gil de Villalobos Señor de Villalobos, son of GIL Gómez de Villalobos & his wife ---. 

d)         [ÁLVARO Díaz .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias, D. Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez"[67]However, there appears to be some confusion relating to Álvaro Díaz, as shown by the references in the same source to the marriage of his daughter.  m JUANA Pérez, daughter of PEDRO Aznárez & his wife ---.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. N. muger de Alvaro Diaz, and D. Juana Perez" as the children of "D. Pedro Aznarez", adding in a later passage that "Alonso [error for Alvaro] Diaz" married "D. Juana Perez"[68].  Álvaro & his wife had one child:] 

i)          [TERESA Álvarez .  There is confusion about the identity of the wife or wives of Juan González.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Teresa Alvarez" as the child of "Alonso [error for Alvaro] Diaz" and his wife "D. Juana Perez", adding in another passage that "Juan Gonçalez Raposo" married "D. Teresa Alvarez"[69].  However, the same source records a second marriage of Juan González: naming "D. Teresa Alvarez" as the child of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Castañeda", and recording that "Juan Gonçalez Raposo" married secondly "D. Teresa Diaz" (which appears to refer to this same person)[70].  If this is correct, Juan González´s wife was Teresa Álvarez, daughter of Álvaro Díaz de Castañeda & his wife --- Pérez.  The Nobiliario records the maternal grandfather of both these individuals as "Pedro Aznarez", which appears to be more than coincidence.  It is assumed therefore that the attempts to identify the father of Teresa Álvarez are just guesses based on her patronymic.  m as his first wife, JUAN González de Meneses Raposo, son of GONZALO Yáñez de Meneses "el Raposo" & his wife Urraca Fernández de Limia.] 

e)         MAYOR Álvarez .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias, D. Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez", recording in a later passage that "D. Diego Gomez de Castañeda" married "D. Mayor" (no patronymic stated)[71]m DIEGO Gómez de Castañeda, son of Conde GÓMEZ Núñez de Castañeda & his wife María Froílaz. 

f)          NICOR Álvarez .  Her parentage is confirmed by the mid-14th Century Nobiliario of Pedro de Portugal Conde de Barcelós which records that “Lope Diaz” married her daughter “doña Mayor Arias, hija de don Juan Diaz de Feniosara y de doña Nicor Alvarez, hija de Alvar Diaz de Asturias, padre de don Pedro Alvarez de Asturias[72]m JUAN Díaz de Feniosara, son of ---. 

 

 

PEDRO Álvarez de Asturias, son of ÁLVARO Díaz de Asturias & his wife Teresa Pérez Girón (-Valladolid 25 Oct 1286)The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias, D. Ordoño Alvarez fue Cardenal, Alonso Alvarez de Noroña, Alvaro Diaz, D. Mayor Alvarez" as the children of "D. Alvaro Diaz de Asturias" and his wife "D. Teresa Perez"[73]Señor de Noroña, Gijón y Trastámara.  Mayordomo of Sancho IV King of Castile 20 Apr 1285 to 15 Oct 1286[74]The Anales Toledanos record the death “VIII Kal Nov” in 1286 of “Don Peralvarez fijo de Don Alvar Diaz Dasturias[75]. 

m SANCHA Rodríguez de Lara, daughter of RODRIGO Álvarez de Lara, Señor de Alcalá & his wife Sancha Díaz de Cifuentes.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "Fernan Rodriguez, Diego Frojaz, Sancho Rodriguez, D. Maria Rodriguez de Ribas, D. Sancha Rodriguez" as the children of "D. Rodrigo Alvarez" and his wife "D. Sancha Diaz", recording in a later passage that "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias" married "D. Sancha Roiz"[76]

Pedro & his wife had three children: 

1.         PEDRO Álvarez de Asturias (-1300).  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, adding that he died without legitimate heirs[77]Señor de Noroña.  m MENCÍA de Quiñones y Nava, daughter of ---.  The primary source which confirms her parentage and marriage has not yet been identified.  

2.         RODRIGO Álvarez de Asturias .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Rodrigo Alvarez, D. Teresa Alvarez" as the children of "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias" and his wife "D. Sancha Roiz"[78]Salazar y Castro records his parentage, adding that he succeeded his brother as Señor de Noroña[79]m JUANA Fernández de Saldaña, daughter of FERNANDO Rodríguez de Saldaña Señor de Saldaña & his wife Juana Rodríguez de Cisneros.  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Juana Fernandez" as the child of "D. Fernan Roiz de Saldaña" and his wife "D. Juana Roiz hija de Riu Gonçalez de Cisneros", adding in another passage that "D. Rodrigo Alvarez de Asturias" married "D. Juana Fernandez"[80]Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage[81].  Rodrigo & his wife had two children: 

a)         RODRIGO Álvarez de Asturias (-1334).  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, adding that he died childless and appointed as his heir Enrique Alfonso, illegitimate son of Alfonso XI King of Castile, who later succeeded as Enrique II King of Castile[82]Señor de Noroña, Girón y Trastámara.  Mayordomo mayor of Queen María, Adelantado mayor de León.  m ISABEL de la Cerda, daughter of ---.  Salazar y Castro records that Rodrigo Álvarez married "doña Isabel de la Cerda, hija de D. Alonso de España Señor de Lunel y de Isabel de Antoing vizcondesa de Gante"[83]However, this suggested parentage appears chronologically impossible.  Assuming that it is correct that Rodrigo Álvarez did marry "Isabel de la Cerda", it is possible that she was the daughter of Infante don Alfonso de la Cerda. 

b)         SANCHA Rodríguez de Asturias Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage[84]m PEDRO Núñez de Guzmán Señor de Aviados, son of ---. 

c)         TERESA Pérez de Asturias .  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Rodrigo Alvarez, D. Teresa Alvarez" as the children of "D. Pedro Alvarez de Asturias" and his wife "D.

Teresa Alvarez"[85].  The Livro Velho records that "D. Affonso filho do infante de Molina e de D. Maria Affonso" married "filha de D. Pedro Aluares das Asturias e de D. Sancha Rodrigues"[86]m ALFONSO Téllez de Molina [de Meneses], son of Infante don ALFONSO de León Señor de Molina y Mesa & his third wife Mayor Alfonso de Meneses Señora de Meneses y Villanueva ([1262]-1314).  Señor de Meneses, Tiedra, Montealegre, Grajal, Alba de Liste, San Román, San Felices y ½ Alburquerque.  Alférez mayor of Sancho IV King of Castile 10 Dec 1288 to 25 Apr 1295. 

 

 

 

C.      FAMILY of GUTIERRE SEBASTIÁNIZ

 

 

The following are the descendants of Gontrodo Pérez, mistress of Alfonso VII King of Castile, by her husband.  These children were therefore half-brothers and sister of Queen Urraca of Navarre who, having returned to Asturias after her repudation by her husband King García VI, appears to have maintained contact with them in their later lives as they are all named together in a 1047 document.

 

 

1.         GUTIERRE Sebastiániz (-after 1137).  Tenente de Aguilar.  Alfonso VII King of Castile invested him with Entratgo, near the river Noreña, in Mar 1133, presumably in compensation for the king having taken his wife as concubine[87].  King Alfonso VII granted “villam...Entratgo...in Cangas circa flumen...Nuenna” to "Guterio Sebastiani" by charter dated 1 Mar 1133[88]m GONTRODO Pérez, daughter of PEDRO Díaz & his wife María Ordóñez (-León 29 Jun 1186, Santa María de Vega near Oviedo).  Gontrodo Pérez named her three supposed children by her marriage in documents in 1143 and 1147[89]Florez reproduces the epitaph in the same monastery which records the death in 1186 of “Guntrodo[90]Gutierre & his wife had three children:

FERNANDO Díaz, son of DIEGO Fernández & his second wife Cristina Fernández (-[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"[102]Conde"...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[103].  "...Rudericus Didaz, Fredinando Didaz..." confirmed the charter dated 14 May 1080 under which King Alfonso VI granted freedoms and exemptions to Sahagún[104]Conde de Asturias de Oviedo.  “...Fernandus Didaz comes...” confirmed the charter dated 7 Sep 1090 which records a dispute between Sahagún and “comite domno Petro et comite domno Martino” concerning “medietate de villa...Fonticellas[105].  “Comes Fredenandus Didaz in Asturias” confirmed the charter dated 22 Feb 1096 under which “Christi ancilla Ximena Pelaiz” donated “hereditatibus...quas habui avis et parentibus meis...in omne regno Legionensi...in Asturias...” to Oviedo[106].  “...Fredenandus comes in Asturias et eius uxor Inderquina...” confirmed the charter dated 20 Feb 1097 under which “Mummadonna cognomento Maior Gunsalviz” donated the monastery of San Pedro de Teverga to Oviedo[107].  "…Fernandus Didaz comes…" subscribed the charter dated 16 Jan 1100 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile donated half of the monastery of Piloño to Santiago de Compostela[108].  Barton suggests that he may have visited Palestine after the First Crusade, quoting a charter of Sahagún dated 12 Feb 1101 which names "Fernandus comes, anno quo venit ex Iherosolimis"[109].  However, there were several individuals "Fernandus comes" at that time to whom the entry could apply. 

m firstly GOTO, daughter of --- (-1087 or before).  Sánchez de Mora suggests that she was GOTO González, daughter of GONZALO Salvadórez & his first wife Elvira Díaz, relying on the charter dated 1087 under which Conde Fernando Díaz” donated property, inherited by his wife Goto from her father and her uncle Álvaro Salvadórez, to San Salvador de Oña[110]

Chapter 3.    AZA, LERMA

 

 

 

GARCÍA García de Aza, son of conde GARCÍA Ordóñez, Tenente en Nájera y Grañón & his second wife Eva --- (1106, before 29 Sep-16 Dec 1160)Salazar y Castro records his parentage[142].  A charter dated 1106 records "eodem anno in die sancti Michaelis" that "comes Garsia" baptised "suum filium in Sancti Emiliani ecclesiam"[143].  The primary source which names his mother has not yet been identified.  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "…García Garcés…" made peace with Alfonso VII King of Castile after his accession in 1126[144].  Alférez of Alfonso VII King of Castile 12 Dec 1126 to 13 Nov 1127[145]"…Garcia Garciaci signifer regis…" subscribed the charter dated 13 Nov 1127 under which King Alfonso VII donated "el castillo de San Jorge en la Sierra del Pindo" to Santiago de Compostela[146]"Aldefonsus…tocius Hyspanie imperator…cum uxore mea imperatrice domna Rica et…filiis meis Sanctio et Ferrando regibus" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 28 Oct 1155, confirmed by "…Garcia Garçiaz de Aza…"[147].  "Garcia Garciez filius comite Garcie…cum uxore mea Sancia" donated part of "albergeria de Oterdaios sicut mater mea et fratres mei dederunt" to Burgos Cathedral by charter dated Dec 1159, witnessed by "…Diago Fernandez, Gonzaluo Padiela, comdessa domna Eluira, dona Maria ermana de la condesa…"[148]

[m firstly --- de Lara, daughter of ---.  This otherwise unrecorded earlier marriage of García García de Aza is suggested by the following document: "Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D. Malrico, Gonsalbo de Marañon, Don Nuño, Don Rodrico, Don Alvaro, Don Pedro Garciaz, comitissa Doña Elbira, Domna Milia, Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" donated "villam…Gormeces" to San Pedro de Arlança, by charter dated 7 Feb 1140[149].  The family relationships between Rodrigo González de Lara, the main donor, and "consanguinibus meis" have been traced except in the case of the three presumed sisters "…Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz".  The connection between these sisters and the Aza family is indicated by the sister Mayor donating property, in the charter dated 24 May 1182 (see below), which had previously been donated by their supposed father.  However, no close relationship between Rodrigo González de Lara and either García García de Aza or his known wife Sancha Pérez de Traba has yet been found.  One explanation for the presence of the three sisters in this document is that their mother was a close relative of the Lara family, maybe the sister of Rodrigo González.  If this is correct, she would have been --- González, daughter of GONZALO Núñez [de Lara] & his wife Goto [Núñez].  This would also explain the absence of the other known children of García García de Aza in the document, on the assumption that they were born from his marriage to Sancha Pérez and so were not directly related to Rodrigo González.] 

m [secondly] SANCHA Pérez de Traba, daughter of conde PEDRO Froílaz de Traba & his second wife condesa Mayor Rodríguez (-after Dec 1159).  "Garcia Garciez…cum uxore mea Sancia Pedrez et filiis meis" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 29 Mar 1157, witnessed by "…Maria Andrez, Maria Ylianez de Vila Tella et Gonsalbus Garciez suus filius…Pedro Garciez de Aza…"[150].  "Garcia Garciez filius comite Garcie…cum uxore mea Sancia" donated part of "albergeria de Oterdaios sicut mater mea et fratres mei dederunt" to Burgos Cathedral by charter dated Dec 1159, witnessed by "…Diago Fernandez, Gonzaluo Padiela, comdessa domna Eluira, dona Maria ermana de la condesa…"[151]

García García & his [first] wife had three children: 

1.         SANCHA Garcia (-after 7 Feb 1140).  "Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D. Malrico, Gonsalbo de Marañon, Don Nuño, Don Rodrico, Don Alvaro, Don Pedro Garciaz, comitissa Doña Elbira, Domna Milia, Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" donated "villam…Gormeces" to San Pedro de Arlança, by charter dated 7 Feb 1140[152]This date appears early for "…Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" (presumably sisters) in this document to refer to children of García García de Aza.  However, their connection with the Aza family is indicated by the sister Mayor donating property, in the charter dated 24 May 1182 (see below), which had previously been donated by their supposed father.  One possibility, as suggested above, is that the mother of the three sisters was an otherwise unrecorded earlier wife of their father who was related to Rodrigo González de Lara.  The fact that Mayor was the only donor in the charter dated 24 May 1182 (see below) suggests that her sisters Sancha and María predeceased her without leaving heirs. 

2.         MAYOR García de Aza (-after 24 May 1182)"Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D. Malrico, Gonsalbo de Marañon, Don Nuño, Don Rodrico, Don Alvaro, Don Pedro Garciaz, comitissa Doña Elbira, Domna Milia, Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" donated "villam…Gormeces" to San Pedro de Arlança, by charter dated 7 Feb 1140[153]Alfonso VIII King of Castile granted "la villa de Sequilla, sita en el río de Francos…en el término de Cobos de Cerrato" to Gonzalo and his wife by charter dated 1 Mar 1169[154]A charter dated Jan 1182 records the entry of her daughter Inés in the Cistercian monastery of Aza, in the presence of her mother "Mayor García", subscribed by her children "Fernando, Pedro, Alberico, Nuño, Domicio, Inés"[155].  "Cometissa domina Maior" donated "hereditatem de albegeria de Oterdaios et de Paramo et de Villaymara" to Burgos Cathedral by charter dated 26 May 1182[156] (which follows an earlier donation to Burgos dated 1159 by her supposed father: "Garcia Garciez filius comite Garcie…cum uxore mea Sancia" donated part of "albergeria de Oterdaios sicut mater mea et fratres mei dederunt" to Burgos Cathedral by charter dated Dec 1159[157]).  m GONZALO [Rodríguez] de Marañón, son of [RODRIGO Pérez de Marañón & his wife --- (-after 21 Nov 1178).  [It should be noted that, according to Salazar y Castro, Mayor García de Aza married Fernando Núñez de Lara, son of Nuño Pérez de Lara & his wife Teresa Fernández de Traba (-Marrakesh 1217, bur Santa María de Puente Fitero).  This parentage is supposedly confirmed by the charter dated 27 Oct 1242 under which her daughters "Doña Sancha Fernández de Lara mujer de don Fernando infante de Portugal señor de Serpa y doña Teresa Fernández de Lara su hermana, mujer de Ponce Hugo conde de Ampurias, hijas del conde Fernando Núñez de Lara alférez mayor de Castilla y de su mujer la condesa doña Mayor García de Aza" donated property in Belorado to the bishop of Burgos[158]The wife of Fernando Núñez de Lara was named Mayor, as shown by the charter dated 1231 under which "Comdessa dompna Mayor mulier del comde don Ferrando et…don Aluar Ferrandez et…dompna Sancha Ferrandet et…dompna Teresa Fernandet, filios del comde don Ferrando" property to the hospital of Burgos[159]However, Martínez Díez describes her parentage as proposed by Salazar y Castro as "pura fabulación y…en contradicción con todos los diplomas y documentos que conocemos", pointing out that all the documentation points to Mayor García de Aza having married Gonzalo [Rodríguez] de Marañón as shown above[160]The original text of the charter dated 27 Oct 1242 has not yet been found, so it is not possible to assess the extent that the extract as provided by Salazar y Castro strays from its wording.  

3.         MARÍA Garcia (-after 1140).  "Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D. Malrico, Gonsalbo de Marañon, Don Nuño, Don Rodrico, Don Alvaro, Don Pedro Garciaz, comitissa Doña Elbira, Domna Milia, Domna Santia Garciaz, Domna Mayor Garciaz, Domna Maria Garciaz" donated "villam…Gormeces" to San Pedro de Arlança, by charter dated 7 Feb 1140[161]The fact that Mayor was the only donor in the charter dated 24 May 1182 (see above) suggests that her sisters Sancha and María predeceased her without leaving heirs. 

García García & his [second] wife had [seven] children: 

4.         PEDRO García de Lerma (-after 22 Aug 1202).  [Salazar y Castro records that "Pedro García y sus hermanas Mayor, Sancha y María" are named in a charter dated 1140 under which Rodrigo González de Lara donated Gormeces to the monastery of San Pedro de Arlanza[162]This date appears early for the document to refer to children of García García de Aza.]  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, citing a donation by "Pedro García…con sus hermanos Gómez, Ordoño, Gonzalo" of Talavera to the Order of Calatrava, by undated charter[163].  Mayordomo of Alfonso VIII King of Castile Mar 1161 to 7 Feb 1172, and 8 Dec 1195 to 25 Jan 1198.  Salazar y Castro cites a charter of Alfonso VIII King of Castile dated 1 Oct 1177 confirmed by (in order) "Petrus Garsiæ, Gomez Garsiæ, Ordonius Garsiæ"[164].  Mayordomo of Alfonso IX King of Leon 8 Jul 1188 to 18 Dec 1188[165].  "…Petrus Garsie de Lerma…" subscribed the charter dated Dec 1199 under which Alfonso VIII King of Castile donated the monastery of Las Huelgas de Burgos to the Order of Cistercians[166].  "…Petrus Garsie de Lerma…" confirmed the charter dated 12 Sep 1201 under which Alfonso VIII King of Castile confirmed the purchase of houses in Toledo by "Ferrando Sancii…repostario meo"[167]m SANCHA Ponce, daughter of conde PONCE de Minerva & his wife condesa Estefanía Ramírez (-after 26 Feb 1189).  “La condesa María y la condesa Sancha, hijas del conde Ponce de León” divided the inheritance of their father by charter dated 26 Feb 1189[168]

5.         GÓMEZ García de Roa (-after 11 Feb 1191).  Salazar y Castro states that "todos los escritores tienen a este señor por el primogénito de D. Garcia Garces IV del nombre señor de Aza y de doña Sancha su mujer" adding that he found no document which contradicts this statement[169]However, he also cites a charter of Alfonso VIII King of Castile dated 1 Oct 1177 confirmed by (in order) "Petrus Garsiæ, Gomez Garsiæ, Ordonius Garsiæ"[170].  If this document correctly refers to the sons of García García de Aza, it suggests that Gómez was the second son.  Alférez of Alfonso VIII King of Castile 30 Dec 1178 to 4 Aug 1182[171].  "…Gomez Garsie de Roda signifer regis Castelle…" subscribed, for Alfonso VIII King of Castile, the charter dated 21 Mar 1181 which records a peace treaty between King Alfonso VIII and Fernando II King of León[172].  [m EREMBURGA, daughter of --- (-[1192]). The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified.]  [m MARÍA García Señora de Roa, daughter of GÓMEZ García Señor de Roa & his wife Teresa Álvarez de Asturias.  Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage, adding that she was her husband´s second cousin her father being "hermano del conde don Garcia Garcia señor de Aza que murió en la batalla de Uclés"[173], although as noted above primary source documentation indicates that the paternal grandfather of Gómez García was named García Ordóñez.]  Gómez & his wife had [five] children: 

a)         GONZALO Gómez de Roa (-after 1212).  Señor de Aza. 

-        see below

b)         [JUAN García .  His patronymic suggests that this affiliation may be incorrect.  Señor de Roa.  m URRACA García de Villamayor Señora de Villalón, daughter of JUAN García de Villamayor & his wife Urraca Fernández de Castro.  Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage[174].] 

c)         PEDRO Gómez de Aza .  Salazar y Castro records his parentage adding that he "tuvo en honor a Peñafiel…la única noticia que hallamos suya"[175]

d)         FERNANDO Gómez de Aza .  Salazar y Castro records his parentage[176].  Señor de Albornoz. 

-        SEÑORES de ALBORNOZ[177]

e)         GARCÍA Gómez de Aza .  Salazar y Castro records his parentage[178].  Comendador de Maqueda en la Orden de Calatrava. 

6.         ORDOÑO García (-after 1188).  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, citing a donation by "Pedro García…con sus hermanos Gómez, Ordoño, Gonzalo" of Talavera to the Order of Calatrava, by undated charter[179].  Salazar y Castro cites a charter of Alfonso VIII King of Castile dated 1 Oct 1177 confirmed by (in order) "Petrus Garsiæ, Gomez Garsiæ, Ordonius Garsiæ"[180].  "…Ordonius Garsie…" subscribed, for Alfonso VIII King of Castile, the charter dated 21 Mar 1181 which records a peace treaty between King Alfonso VIII and Fernando II King of León[181]

7.         GONZALO García .  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, citing a donation by "Pedro García…con sus hermanos Gómez, Ordoño, Gonzalo" of Talavera to the Order of Calatrava, by undated charter[182]

8.         GARCÍA García (-after 1166).  Salazar y Castro records his parentage, citing a donation by "Pedro García…con sus hermanos Gómez, Ordoño, Gonzalo" of Talavera to the Order of Calatrava, by undated charter[183]Señor de Montejo y Castel Sarracín. [m firstly LEONOR Fortúnez, daughter of FORTÚN López Señor de Soria y San Estebán de Gormaz & his wife Elvira Pérez.  Salazar y Castro states that "convienen los escritores de mejor nombre" concerning her parentage and marriage, but does not cite the corresponding primary source[184].]  [m secondly (before 15 Jul 1165) --- Díaz, daughter of DIEGO Díaz de Velasco & his wife Enderquina ---.  "Didacus Didaci de Biascori" donated property in Villaporquera "iuxta terram Garcie Garceiz de Villoria" to San Millán de Cogolla by charter dated 14 Sep 1165, witnessed by "Domna Endrechina eiusdem Didaci Didaz uxor…Bernardus Didaci eius filius, Gilius Didaci eiusdem filii, domna Rama et domna Ozenda eiusdem filii, Garsea Garciez eiusdem gener, Ferrandus Gonzalvez eiusdem gener, Simeon Garsiez eiusdem gener, Didacus Didaci Covo eiusdem frater…"[185].  Salazar y Castro identifies the witness "…Garsea Garciez eiusdem gener…" as García García, son of García García de Aza[186]However, there seems no guarantee that this co-identification is correct.  It appears likely that García García, the witness in this document, was the same person as "Garcie Garceiz de Villoria" who the document names as the owner of land adjacent to the property donated.  If this is correct, no connection has yet been found between García García de Aza and Villoria or indeed any property which is near the monastery of San Millán de Cogolla.  This suggested marriage also appear early to apply to a son of García García de Aza, bearing in mind the known chronology of his son Pedro García and his daughter Mayor García.]  [García García & his wife had one child] (Salazar y Castro records two other supposed children but the basis for his assigning them to García García de Aza is unclear from his text, other than their patronymic "García"[187]):

1.         BELTRÁN de Riseñoral [Risnel] (-1138)Nephew of Alfonso I King of Aragon, according to Szabolcs de Vajay[298] and Reilly[299].  The precise relationship has not been traced, unless the reference is intended to indicate the tenuous family relations between King Alfonso and the husband of his wife's illegitimate daughter.  His name suggests non-Spanish origin, maybe French (the name “Bertrand” is relatively common among nobility in the area of Toulouse).  Señor de Carrión.  Conde from 1113.  His jurisdiction in Carrión de los Condes was recognised by the Council of Burgos in 1117[300].  Alfonso I King of Aragon donated “hereditatem...sub kastro super ripam fluminis Leredme...ad vineam filiorum de Diago Munnioz” to Segovia Cathedral by charter dated Dec 1122, the dating clause of which records “comes dompnus Bertrandus in Karrione, Senior Enneco Ximinones in Extrematura, Senior Enneco Lopez in Soria[301].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that Alfonso VII King of Castile captured "Count Pedro de Lara and his son-in-law Count Bertran" at Palencia and imprisoned them at León until they surrendered all their castles[302]m firstly (after Oct 1110) as her second husband, URRACA Muñoz, widow of conde GÓMEZ González "de Candespina", daughter of [conde MUÑO González & his wife condesa Mayor] (-before 1130).  It is not certain that Urraca can be the daughter of Muño González as neither she nor her children are named in the 20 Sep 1120 charter of her supposed sister Jimena Muñoz, which appears to refer to all the donor´s relatives with whom she held an interest in the monastery of Santa Cruz de Castañeda.  According to Torres[303], the widow of Gómez González "de Candaspina" married secondly, as his first wife, Beltrán de Risnel.  m secondly (before Jan 1130) as her second husband, ELVIRA Pérez de Lara, widow of GARCÍA Pérez de Traba, illegitimate daughter of PEDRO González Conde de Lara & his mistress Urraca Queen of Castile and León (before Sep 1117[304]-after 1174).  “Comes Malricus…cum fratribus et sororibus nostris Albar Petriz et Nun Petriz, comitissa domna Elvira, Mari Petriz, Milia Petriz” conferred rights on San Juan de Tardajos by charter dated 31 Jan 1147[305].  “Comitissa Ieluira Petriz” granted “hereditate...in Kastru Uaui...que mihi daturus erat domnus Garcia maritus meus in coniungo...super fluuium Ceia...” to “Nazareno Petri et uxori tue Eluira Rodrici” by charter dated 20 May 1163[306].  "Gelvira comitissa" donated the villas of Nogal and Olmillos, as they were in the time of "avi mei regis domini Adefonsi", to Sahagún monastery by charter dated 1168, confirmed by charter dated 1174 which names her "Gelvira Urrace regine filia et bone memorie Adefonsi imperatoris soror"[307].  Beltrán & his [first/second] wife had --- children: 

a)         [MARÍA Beltrán (-after 1145).  Íñigo Jiménez and his wife María Beltrán granted rights to the town of Yanguas in 1145, as stated in a confirmation by Diego Jiménez and Guiomar dated 1188 and 1192[308].  No proof has been found that María Beltrán was the daughter of Beltrán de Riseñoral.  However, no other Beltrán has yet been identified at that time among the nobility in northern Spain who could have been her father.  If this parentage is correct, the chronology indicates that María would have been his daughter by his first wife.  m as his second wife, IÑIGO Jiménez, son of JIMENO Fortúnez & his wife Andregoto --- (-after 1145).] 

b)         SANCHA Beltrán .  The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. 

c)         children (-before 1138, bur San Payo de Santiago).  "Comitissa Gelvira, domini Petri et Reginæ domnæ Urracæ filia" donated property to San Payo de Santiago, for the souls of "viri mei domini Garcia, comitis domini Petri filius et comitissæ dominæ Maioris…filiorumque meorum quorum corpora sepulta…in præfato monasterio", by charter dated 1138[309].  Considering Elvira´s probable date of birth, and the date of death of her first husband, it is more likely that these unnamed children were born from her second marriage.

Chapter 7.    CASTRO

 

 

A.      CASTRO

 

 

The Castro family attained a position of power during the reign of Alfonso VII King of Castile and succeeded in maintaining its influence thereafter.  Its origins are, however, obscure.  As shown below, one theory is that the first known member of the family Fernando García was the illegitimate son of García King of Galicia, a younger son of Fernando I King of Castile, who was arrested and imprisoned by his older brothers.  The theory is interesting and could explain the family's sudden rise to prominence but there is no proof that it is correct other than Fernando's patronymic. 

 

 

 

[FERNANDO García, illegitimate son of GARCÍA King of Galicia & his wife ---] ([1073/90]-).  Reilly[361] suggests that Fernando García de Castro may have been the illegitimate son of García King of Galicia, son of Fernando I King of Castile and León, born during his father's period of imprisonment, therefore after 1073.  The chronology of this suggestion would be in doubt if Fernando's son, Gutierre, was a young adult in 1105 but, as explained below, this is difficult to sustain.  No confirmation has yet been found in contemporary documentation that King García had an illegitimate child, so this theory must remain an interesting speculation. 

same person as…?  FERNANDO García [de Hita/de Castro] (-[killed in battle] [1134])Urraca Queen of Castile granted him the villas of Hita and Uceda.  The dating clause of a charter dated 1110, under which Alfonso I King of Aragon donated property to Valvanera, records “...Fernandus Garsea, Fictam...[362]He acted as the queen's intermediary with her second husband Alfonso I "el Batallador" King of Aragon[363].  "Urracha…Ispanie regina, regis Aldefonsi regineque Constantie filia" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 26 Mar 1119, confirmed by "…Fernandus Garsie maior, Fernandus Garsie minor…"[364].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "Fernando Fernández, the governor of Hita" (presumably an error for Fernando García) was killed fighting the Muslims, the dating of this event being difficult from the context although it appears to have been before the death of Alfonso I King of Aragon (in 1134)[365]

[m firstly ([1085]) ---.  No direct evidence has been found of this first marriage.  However, it is possible, as shown below, that Fernando´s oldest son was a young adult in 1105.  This would place his parents´ marriage in [1085].  If the suggested identity of Fernando´s wife Tigridia is correct as shown below, it is unlikely from a chronological point of view that she could have married that early, which would point to an earlier otherwise unrecorded marriage.] 

m [firstly/secondly] ([1085]) TEGRIDIA ---, daughter of --- (-before 1119).  "Ferrando Garciez" granted arras to "uxori meæ Estefania Ermegoz comitis Ermegodis filiæ", including over property inherited from "altera muliere Tigridia", by charter dated 12 Nov 1119[366].  Her marriage date is estimated on the basis of their older son being a young adult in 1105, although as shown below this is not necessarily correct.  It is possible that she was Tegridia Martínez, daughter of Martín Flaínez & his wife Sancha Fernández.  This suggested co-relationship is based on the charter dated 21 Nov 1129, under which the brother of Tegridia Martínez "Comes Rodericus…comitis Martini filius" granted arras to "Vrrace Fernandi uxore mee legitime, Fernandi Garcie et infantisse domine Stephanie fillie", which was confirmed by "…Rodericus Fernandi sobrinus comitis Roderici, Gundisaluus Adefonsi comitis Roderici cognatus…"[367], together with the fact that Fernando names his earlier wife Tegridia in a charter dated 12 Nov 1119[368].  If the hypothesis is correct, the husband of Fernando´s daughter of Urraca would have been Tegridia´s brother. 

m [secondly/thirdly] (contract 12 Nov 1119) as her first husband, ESTEFANIA de Urgell, daughter of ARMENGOL V "él de Mayeruca" Comte de Urgell & his wife María Pérez Señora de Valladolid (-after 1143).  "Regina Don Urraka tocius Ispaniæ Ildefonsi magni Inperatoris filia" granted the villa of Cevico de la Torre to "mea cogermana Domna Estefania comitis Ermegodis filia" by charter dated 30 Jun 1119[369].  The family relationship between Estefania and Queen Urraca has not been established, unless it relates to the possible descent of Estefania´s first husband from the family of the kings of León.  "Ferrando Garciez" granted arras to "uxori meæ Estefania Ermegoz comitis Ermegodis filiæ", including over property inherited from "altera muliere Tigridia", by charter dated 12 Nov 1119[370]She married secondly (9 Sep 1135) conde Rodrigo González de Lara Señor de Lara y Liebana.  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted various properties to "comiti Roderico Gonzaluez et uxori tue comittisse Stephanie Armengol et…comiti Roderici Martinez et uxori tue comitisse Urraca" by charter dated Jul 1135[371].  "Comes Rudericus Gundisalui" granted arras to "coniugi mee comitissa domna Steuania" by charter dated 6 Sep 1135[372].  "Stephania…comitissa bonæ memoriæ Armengoldi comitis filiæ" founded the monastery of Santa María de Valbuena by charter dated 15 Feb 1143, witnessed by "domna Urraca Ferrandiz comitissa, Martinus Ferrandiz, domna Sancia Ferrandiz, Petrus Ferrandiz, Gutterius Ferrandiz, Rodericus Ferrandiz…"[373].   

Fernando & his [first] or [first/second] wife had one child: 

1.         GUTIERRE Fernández de Castro (-1166, bur monastery of San Cristobál de Ibeas).  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Fernan Fernandez, D. Rodrigo Fernandez, D. Gutierre Fernandez, D. Sancha" as the children of "D. Fernando" and his wife "D. Maria Alvarez, hija del Conde D. Alvaro Minaya i de la condesa D. Milia Anzorez"[374][Torres Sevilla assumes that he was the same Gutierre Fernández who was recorded as confirming a deed of Alfonso VI King of Castile in 1105[375], and was mayordomo mayor of Queen Urraca from 15 Oct 1110 to 22 Jan 1117.  Salazar Acha maintains that this second Gutierre Fernández was the probable son of Fernando Hermenegildez & his wife Juliana, suggesting that "chronological reasons" prevent his co-identity with Gutierre Fernández de Castro[376].  There are three reasons why Torres Sevilla´s co-identity theory is unlikely to be correct: (1) the unlikelihood of the same person holding the post of mayordomo (three times) over a period of 40 years; (2) the advanced age at which Gutierre would have died, unusual by contemporary standards, although Torres Sevilla does not see this as insuperable[377]; and (3) the chronological difficulty it would introduce into the question of his father's royal origin, although this suggested origin is highly speculative in any case.]  "Taresa Ordonez" granted half her property in Quintanilla Rodano, Sotopalacios and Quintana Fortuno to "Guter Fernandez et…Tota Diaz mea nepta…pro aver que dispense de Enderquina Alvarez tua mater et mea filia" by charter dated 5 Nov 1124[378].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that "…Gutierre Fernández, his brother Rodrigo…" made peace with Alfonso VII King of Castile after his accession in 1126[379].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that Alfonso VII King of Castile sent "Count Rodrigo Martínez and Gutierre Fernández" as his envoys to the "Saracen king in Rueda…Zafadola", which resulted in the surrender of Rueda to King Alfonso[380].  He was mayordomo mayor of Alfonso VII King of Castile Feb 1135 to 24 Oct 1138, and 17 Jun 1153 to 23 Jul 1155[381].  He was named as tutor of Infante don Sancho, the future Sancho III King of Castile, from his birth in 1134[382].  "...Guterius Fernandez Maiordomus..." 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[383].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted property in San Román de Burgos to "domno Guterro Ferrandez meo maiordomus" by charter dated 20 Oct 1138[384].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted the monastery of San Salvador de El Moral to "domno Guterro Frenandez et uxore vestra domna Toda" by charter dated 5 Apr 1139[385].  "…Gulterri Fernandiz, Martinus Fernandiz de Ficta…" subscribed the charter dated 1 Jul 1140 under which King Alfonso VII donated various property between

confirmed by "…Guterrus Fernandez…"[387].  "…Guterrus Fernandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 31 Jan 1145 under which King Alfonso VII donated "villam…Certame" to Santiago de Compostela[388].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted property near San Salvador de El Moral to "domno Guterrio Ferrandez et uxori vestra Tode" by charter dated 29 Jan 1146[389].  According to the Poem of Almería, he took part in the capture of that city in 1147[390].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted "una villa…in termino de Ozieza…Foramnada" to "domno Guteirrio et uxori vestra domine Tote" by charter dated 15 Feb 1149[391].  "Aldefonsus…tocius Hyspanie imperator…cum uxore mea imperatrice domna Rica et…filiis meis Sanctio et Ferrando regibus" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 28 Oct 1155, confirmed by "…Gutierre Ferrandiz…"[392].  "Martinus Fernandez" sold various properties to "Gundisalvo Ferrandiz fratri meo" by charter dated 1156, the dating clause of which names "…Guter Ferrandez tenente Castro et Amaia…"[393].  The dating clause of a charter dated 1156, under which "Didago Moniz et uxor mea Urraca Tellez…" donated property in San Martín de los Álamos to San Zoilo de Carrión, records "in Baecia, comes Almarricus, comes Poncius maiordomus imperatoris, Nuno Petrez in Auia, Didago Moniuz medietatem in Carrione et tota Saldana, Michael Alarez suo merino, Guter Ferrandiz medietatem in Carrion"[394].  King Sancho III named him as tutor of his young son, the future Alfonso VIII.  This was challenged by the Lara family after the latter's accession in 1158, which triggered a war of rivalry in Castile between the two families, culminating in the exhumation of Gutierre's body and trial after death for treason[395].  Rodrigo Jiménez de Rada records that “Guterrio Fernandi de Castro” was childless by his wife “Theodam[396]m (before 5 Nov 1124) TODA Díaz, daughter of DIEGO Sánchez & his wife Enderquina Álvarez (-after 9 Jul 1160).  "Taresa Ordonez"

charter dated 5 Nov 1124[397].  According to Torres Sevilla[398], Toda Díaz was niece of García García de Aza but this is not compatible with the latter's family as set out above.  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted the monastery of San Salvador de El Moral to "domno Guterro Frenandez et uxore vestra domna Toda" by charter dated 5 Apr 1139[399].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted property near San Salvador de El Moral to "domno Guterrio Ferrandez et uxori vestra Tode" by charter dated 29 Jan 1146[400].  Alfonso VII King of Castile granted "una villa…in termino de Ozieza…Foramnada" to "domno

Chapter 9.    FAMILY of FERNANDO FERNÁNDEZ

 

 

1.         FERNANDO --- (-before 8 Jul 1117).  Conde.  He is named "patris mei Fernandi comitis" in the charter dated 8 Jul 1117 under which his son donated property for his soul (see below)[792].  The father of Fernando Fernández has not yet been positively identified.  The documentation shows three individuals named Fernando who were "conde" in the later part of the reign of King Alfonso VI and the early part of the reign of his daughter Queen Urraca: Fernando Muñoz, named as conde in Astorga in 1100; Fernando Díaz, who was killed at Uclés in 1108, son of Diego Fernández and his second wife Cristina Fernández; Fernando Vermúdez, son of Vermudo Ordóñez and his wife Sancha Eriz.  Fernando Díaz and Fernando Vermúdez are both recording with children, who do not include a son named Fernando.  The connection between Fernando Muñoz and Astorga provides an interesting possible link, considering that Infanta Elvira Alfonso, first wife of Fernando´s son Fernando Fernández, held property in the same area.  Another possibility is that he was another person named "Fernando Fernández".  [same person as…? FERNANDO Fernández (-[4/30 Jun] 1117).  The patronymic of the father of Fernando Fernández, husband of Elvira Alfonso, has not been ascertained.  He may have been conde Fernando Fernández who is named in the two documents which are quoted below, although three generations of male succession in the same family bearing the same name is untypical of naming patterns in the Iberian peninsular in the 11th/12th centuries.  It is unlikely (although not impossible) that these two documents refer to the husband of Elvira Alfonso as he is not recorded with the title conde in a subsequent charter dated 8 Jul 1117 (see below).  No other reference has been found at that time to a "Conde Fernando Fernández".  If this suggestion is correct, conde Fernando died soon after the date of the second document, considering that his supposed son Fernando Fernández donated property for his father´s soul by charter dated 8 Jul 1117.  It should be noted that, under a third charter dated 30 Jun 1117, the same grantor of the land under the second document granted another part of the same property to Fernando Fernández and his wife Elvira Alfonso (see below), which suggests that the hypothesised co-identity may be correct, the regrant in that case being prompted by the death of the earlier grantee.  In addition, another charter dated 3 Jun 1130 records Infanta Elvira Alfonso holding "Bolannos", one of the territories noted as controlled by Conde Fernando Fernández in the 4 Jun 1117 document.  Conde.  The acts of the council of Oviedo, supposedly held in 1115, name "Comes Gometius Pelaji, Comes Fernandus Fernandi, Rodericus Fernandi, Petrus Pelaji, Didacus Munionis" as "ex campis Zamoræ et campi Tauri"[793].  Barton points out that this document is spurious and so the reliability of its contents should be considered accordingly[794], although it nevertheless appears to provide good indications of the geographical origin of contemporary nobility.  "Xemena Goncalvez" sold "medietate de Villa Renil" to "comite Fernando Fernandiz" by charter dated 4 Jun 1117, the dating clause of which records "…comite Fernando Fernandiz in Malgrado et in Bolanios…"[795].]  m ---.  The name of Fernando's wife is not known.  [It is possible that she was Ildonza [Eslonza]: "La condesa Eslonza y sus hijos Fernando Fernández y Elvira Muñoz" sold property at Villanueva de Arriba, next to Muñeca, to "Pedro Rodríguez y a su mujer Cita" by charter dated 17 Aug 1087[796], although this date is early for Fernando Fernández who is shown below to be named, considering the date of his first known marriage.]  Fernando & his wife had one child: 

a)         FERNANDO Fernández (-16 Jan 1126).  "…Fernando Fernandiz…" subscribed the charter dated 26 Nov 1115 under which Queen Urraca donated half of Caneda and the monastery of Ledesma to Santiago de Compostela[797].  Barton cites a charter of Queen Urraca dated 20 Jan 1116 which names Fernando Fernández "de Toro"[798].  "...Fernandus Fernandiz..." subscribed the charter dated 17 Jun 1116 under which Queen Urraca donated the villa de San Martín to León Cathedral[799].  "Enxemenia Gonçalvez" sold property granted "ad me et ad filio meo Monio Petriz…in territorio Lampreana villa…Villa Rein" by Queen Urraca to "Fernando Fernandiz…cum socia mea infans domna Elvira" by charter dated 30 Jun 1117[800].  "Fernanz Fernanniz…et uxor mea infanta donna Gelvira filia regis Alfonsi" donated "quartem partem de monasterio de Ferreries…in Gallicia in terra de Lemes juxta Pantonem", inherited from his father and grandparents, to Cluny by charter dated 8 Jul 1117 made "pro anima patris mei Fernandi comitis", confirmed by "Gomez Pelaiz, Ferrandus Menendiz, Petrus Oveguis, Cutz Gonzaviz, Gonzalvus Assuriz"[801].  "Maior Garzia cum filiis meis don Garzia Gomet et Pelagio Gomet et Diego Gomet et Urracha Gomet" donated "in Villamaior monasterium Sancti Martini medium" to San Zoilo de Carrión, for the soul of "domni Gomiz --- mariti mei", by charter dated 18 May 1118, confirmed by "Ferran Ferrandiz, Ferran Merendet, Rodrigo Martinet, Gunzaluo Asuret, Didago Gomet, Petrus Martinet"[802].  "…Comes dominus Fernandus de Campos…" subscribed the charter dated 26 Sep 1119 under which "Rex Dominus Adefonsus Hispanie ducis domini Reimundi et regine domine Urrace filius" donated property to the monastery of San Julián de Moraimo "in terra de Traba", with the consent of "domini Petri Galecie comitis"[803].  Barton identifies this subscriber as Conde Fernando Fernández[804].  The form of the document appears ponderous which suggests that it may be spurious.  Fernando joined the knights of St John of Jerusalem: "Alvira Adefonso cum filiis meis" donated "civitate Cantavria…Sancti Vicencii de Lomba" to the knights of St John of Jerusalem by charter dated 26 Jun 1125, the dating clause of which records "…comite Fernando Fernandus adiutor et defensor"[805].  Barton suggests that Fernando died before 1126 as he is not named in the Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris among the nobles who paid homage to King Alfonso VII following his accession[806].  This suggestion may not be correct if Fernando had joined the knights of Jerusalem, in which case he would no longer have been one of the nobles whose homage was required.  The necrology of León Cathedral records the death “XVII Kal Feb” of “comes Fernandus Fernandi[807]m [firstly] (before 30 Jun 1117[, separated before 1121]) as her second husband, ELVIRA Alfonso, widow of RAYMOND IV Comte de Toulouse, illegitimate daughter of ALFONSO VI King of Castile & León & his mistress Jimena Muñoz (-15 Nov [1156]).  The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Jimena Muñoz" as the first of two concubines of King Alfonso, and their daughters "Elvira the wife of count Raymond of Toulouse…and Teresa the wife of Count Henry"[808].  Her birth date is estimated from the birth of her first child "before 1097".  "Raimundus…comes et Provincie marchio" donated property to Saint-Victor, Marseille by charter dated 28 Jul 1094, also confirming donations by "Dulcis comitissa", signed by "Alvira comitissa"[809].  The bull of Pope Urban II dated 18 Feb 1095 announces that "Raimundus Tolosanus comes…cum uxore sua Hervira et filio Bertranno" abandoned his rights to altar offerings at the monastery of Saint-Gilles[810].  According to Guibert, Comte Raymond left on the First Crusade with his wife and son (both unnamed) "Qui quidem, naturali cuidam filio suo comitatu quem regebat relicto, propriam conjugem cum filio, quem ab ea exegerat, unico secum duxit"[811].  She left Palestine after her husband's death, arriving back in Toulouse with her infant son in 1108[812].  Her second marriage is confirmed by the charter dated 30 Jun 1117 under which "Enxemenia Gonçalvez" sold property granted "ad me et ad filio meo Monio Petriz…in territorio Lampreana villa…Villa Rein" by Queen Urraca to "Fernando Fernandiz…cum socia mea infans domna Elvira"[813], and by the charter dated 8 Jul 1117 under which "Fernanz Fernanniz…et uxor mea infanta donna Gelvira filia regis Alfonsi" donated "quartem partem de monasterio de Ferreries…in Gallicia in terra de Lemes juxta Pantonem" to Cluny[814].  Elvira´s second marriage is also indicated by the charter dated 18 Apr 1127 under which her mother "Ximena Munniz" donated property in "Trebalio et Turres" to "nepotis mei…Garcie Fernandiz"[815], and by the charter dated 1201 under which her great-granddaughter "Domna Xemena Osoriz" donated her property in Valdejunco, Valdunquillo, Villa Velasco, Fontamian, Villa Sanz, Carvajal, Villela, Otero, Mozos, Valdescapa, Barriales, Valle Vaniego, Ranero and in tierra de Cea to Sahagún monastery, naming "aviam tuam Infantem Gelviram"[816], although the second document does not clarify which of the two "Infantas Elvira" is referred to.  On the other hand, Reilly[817] says that Elvira, wife of Raymond IV Comte de Toulouse, did not return to Castile until after the death of Queen Urraca.  As discussed in the document CASTILE & LEÓN KINGS, he maintains that the wife of Fernando Fernández was Elvira who was the daughter of King Alfonso VI by "Elisabeth".  As discussed in that document, it is more likely that the younger Elvira was the wife of Roger King of Sicily.  Canal Sánchez-Pangín concludes that the wife of Fernando Fernández was indeed the widow of Raymond IV Comte de Toulouse[818].  One difficulty is that Alphonse I Comte de Toulouse, son of Comte Raymond IV and Elvira, was declared of age only in 1121, although it is not known whether his mother acted as regent in Toulouse throughout his minority.  "Alvira Adefonso cum filiis meis" donated "civitate Cantavria…Sancti Vicencii de Lomba" to the knights of St John of Jerusalem by charter dated 26 Jun 1125, the dating clause of which records "…comite Fernando Fernandus adiutor et defensor"[819].  The dating clause of a charter dated 3 Jun 1130, under which "Velasco Moniz…cum uxor mea Maria Pelaiz…" donated the monastery of San Vicente de Villar to the knights of St John of Jerusalem, records "…infante domina Elvira in Castro Virido et in Bolannos"[820].  "Infans Geloira...imperatoris Hispanie Adefonsi filia...cum filiis meis Garsia, Didaco et Tarasia" donated

Chapter 11.  FAMILY of PEDRO ANSÚREZ

 

 

ANSUR Díaz, son of conde DIEGO Fernández de Saldaña & his wife Marina --- (-after 29 Sep 1047)...Fernando Didaz comes...Ansur Didaz, Gomez Didaz...” subscribed the charter dated 17 Feb 1035 under which King Vermudo III recognised the church of Palencia and made donations[904].  "Fernando Didaz comes…Assur Diaz, Gomez Didaz" subscribed the charter dated 1036 under which Vermudo III King of León donated property[905]...comite Fredinando Didaz, Asurz Didaz” witnessed the charter dated 24 May 1038 under which Fernando I King of Castile granted “castellum...Vierbele” to “Garcia Eneconis[906]Conde [Apr/Oct] 1042.  "Assur Diaz et uxor mea Iusta" donated property in León to León Cathedral by charter dated 29 Sep 1047[907]

[m firstly ---.  The name of Ansur´s first wife is not known.  Ansur´s son Pedro is not named in the charters which record donations to his son Gonzalo and which indicate the family of Gonzalo´s mother (see below).  It is therefore assumed that Pedro was born from a different mother, presumably Ansur´s first wife.  One source suggests that her name was Mayor: the index of Sahagún documents records that "el conde D. Pedro Ansurez con su mujer Eilo y sus hijos" exchanged property in "Villa Abduz", inherited from "su madre doña Mayor", and land which belonged to "Tello Sarraciniz", for property which had belonged to "Osorio Diaz" with Sahagun by charter dated 16 Sep 1090[908].  However, this extract is inaccurate: the charter as included in the Sahagún cartulary records that “domna Maiore” granted “hereditate quam habuit de viro suo Uermudo Monnioz in villa...Abduz” to “Petro Assuriz comes” and that the latter exchanged “herentia qui fuit de domna Maiore in Uilla de Abduz que habuit de viro suo Uermudo Monnioz in dote arrarum et de porfiliatione filie sue domna Santia” with Sahagún, by charter dated 16 Sep 1090[909], and so includes no indication that “Maiore” was the mother of Pedro Ansúrez.  Another possibility is that Pedro was younger than his half-brother Gonzalo and that he was the full brother of Fernando.  If that is correct, he would have been born from his father´s third marriage.] 

m [secondly] --- Ovéquiz, daughter of OVECO Téllez & his wife Elvira ---.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 5 Sep 1072 under which [her sister and her son] “Momadomna et meo sobrino Gundissaluo Assuriz” donated "divisiones...abemus de abolorum parentumque nostrorum in Uilla...Uimara" to Sahagún[910].  This property was also donated by Muniadomna Ovéquiz, who is therefore presumably identified as “Momadomna” in this 5 Sep 1072 charter. 

[m thirdly ---.  The identity of the mother of Ansur´s son, Fernando, has not been ascertained with certainty.  The order of names in the passage from the Chronicon Mundi suggests that Fernando was younger than his brother Gonzalo.  However, he is not named with Gonzalo in the charters which involved Gonzalo´s supposed brother Ermegildo and their supposed relative Muniadomna Godestéiz.  Nor is he named by their father´s [fourth] wife Justa Fernández in her charters which name her son Diego.  It is a reasonable assumption, therefore, that Fernando was born from an otherwise unrecorded third marriage of his father.]

3.         MAYOR Pérez (-after 23 Apr 1148).  The order of confirmations in the charter dated 17 Sep 1114, under which Pedro Ansúrez donated property for the soul of his first wife (see above), suggests that the three daughters Mayor, Urraca and María were born in that order.  "Maiora Petriz comitissa" confirmed the donation by "Comes Petrus de Assuriz et uxor mea comitissa domina Elo" to Santa María de Pamplona by charter dated 1110[998].  "Comes Petrus Assur filius…mandante Saldania et Capizon" donated property to Valladolid Santa María, for the soul of "uxori meæ comitissa Eiloni", by charter dated 17 Sep 1114, confirmed by "…comitissa domna Maior, Martin Petriz de Oter Desellas…"[999].  "Comes Petrus Assur filius et […uxor mea] comitissa Eluira Sanccius filia" donated property to Valladolid Santa María, by charter dated 18 Sep 1114, confirmed by "Martin Petriz de Oterdesellas, comitissa domna Maior eius uxor…"[1000].  “Comitissa Maior Petrez” donated property “que abui de parentum meorum...solare...que fuit de Diaz Gonzalvez in villa...Bega in territorio Sancti Romani” by charter dated 20 Nov 1119[1001].  Mayor Pérez donated property “en la villa de Mesedas” to San Isidro de Dueñas by charter dated 3 Jun 1124 witnessed by “Rudericus Ferrandez gener comitisse, Petrus Martini filius comitisse, Eylo filia comitisse, Esloncia filia comitisse, Petrus Gonzalvez comes Lare…[1002]"Comitissa Maior Petriz" donated property to the monastery of San Zoilo de Carrión by charter dated 5 Apr 1129, which names "meo sobrino comite Ermengot"[1003].  The testament of "Mayor Petri comitissa domni Petri Asuriz comitis filia", dated 1 Apr 1146, donated various properties, witnessed by "…Petrus Martini filius meus, Elo Alvarez filia mea…"[1004].  "Comitissa Maior Petriz comitis Petri et comitissa domna Elonis filia" donated property in Retoria to "abba domno Bernaldo" by charter dated 23 Apr 1148, witnessed by "mea filia domno Elo…"[1005]m firstly ÁLVAR Fáñez, son of --- (-Segovia 1114).  dux de Toledo.  He died in a popular rebellion in Segovia.  m secondly MARTÍN Pérez de Tordesillas, son of --- (-after 18 Sep 1114).  "Comes Petrus Assur filius…mandante Saldania et Capizon" donated property to Valladolid Santa María, for the soul of "uxori meæ comitissa Eiloni", by charter dated 17 Sep 1114, confirmed by "…comitissa domna Maior, Martin Petriz de Oter Desellas…"[1006].  "Comes Petrus Assur filius et […uxor mea] comitissa Eluira Sanccius filia" donated property to Valladolid Santa María, by charter dated 18 Sep 1114, confirmed by "Martin Petriz de Oterdesellas, comitissa domna Maior eius uxor…"[1007].  Mayor & her second husband had two children:

5.         URRACA Pérez (-before 17 Sep 1114)The order of confirmations in the charter dated 17 Sep 1114, under which Pedro Ansúrez donated property for the soul of his first wife (see above), suggests that the three daughters Mayor, Urraca and María were born in that order.  Her parentage and marriage are confirmed by the charter dated 1134 under which her daughter “Geluira Sanctii comitis et Urracce comitisse filia et comitiss Petri Ansuriz neptis...cum filio meo Sanctio” donated "hereditatibus meis in Uilla Abduz [...quantum mihi contigit et ad meos germanos de parte de mea matre] et in Uilla Alan [...habuit illo comite Petro meo avolo]" to Sahagún[1017].  She presumably died before 17 Sep 1114 as she did not confirm the charter of that date under which her father donated property for her mother´s soul, which was signed by her three supposed children.  m conde SANCHO [Pérez], son of PEDRO --- & his wife --- (-after 25 Jan 1100). 

6.         MARÍA Pérez (-after 1129).  The order of confirmations in the charter dated 17 Sep 1114, under which Pedro Ansúrez donated property for the soul of his first wife (see above), suggests that the three daughters Mayor, Urraca and María were born in that order.  Her origin is deduced from the charter dated 5 Apr 1129 under which "Comitissa Maior Petriz" donated property to the monastery of San Zoilo de Carrión naming "meo sobrino comite Ermengot"[1018].  It is also suggested by a charter dated 1 Nov [1106/07] which records a gift by "comes Petrus" to "Ermengaudum nepotem suum"[1019].  Monfar dates the marriage to before 21 May 1095, the date of a charter under which Conde Pedro donated property to Valladolid, confirmed by "conde don Fernan Ruiz de Castro, don Armengol conde de Urgel y el conde don Alvar Fañez Minaya" all of whom he says were sons-in-law of the donor[1020].  Señora de Valladolid.  As mentioned below, the order of confirmations in the charter dated 17 Sep 1114, under which María´s father donated property for the soul of her mother, suggests that María married secondly "Rodrigo" by whom she had two daughters.  m [firstly] (before 21 May 1095) ARMENGOL [V] "él de Mayeruca" Conde de Urgel, son of ARMENGOL [IV] "él de Gerp" Conde de Urgel & his first wife Lucia --- ([1071/75]-14 Sep 1102).  [m secondly RODRIGO ---, son of ---.  [children of second marriage:]

7.         [MILIA Ansúrez The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos records that "Conde D. Alvaro Fernandez Minaya, que tuvo del Rey en tenencia a Castroxerez" married "D. la Condesa D. Milia Anzores, hija del Conde Don Pedro Anzores de Caton"[1026].  It does not appear that this parentage can be correct as Milia is not named as the daughter of Pedro Ansúrez in any of the documentation relating to the family.  m ÁLVARO Fernández Minaya, son of FERNANDO Laínez & his wife Jimena Núñez.]

1.         TELLO --- (-after 1066)m ---, daughter of --- & his wife --- 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"[1027].  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 in the document ASTURIAS, LEON NOBILITY.  Tello & his wife had three children: 

a)         ALFONSO Téllez (-after 1116).  ...Adefonso Telliz” confirmed the charter dated 9 Sep 1105 under which "Petrus Gutterriz et uxor mea Xemena Muniz...cum filiis et filiabus nostris Gutterre et Fredinando et Urraka et Marina et Maior" donated “porcione...in monasterio Sancti Saluatoris que adiacet riuulo Sicco subtus monte Taraza in ualle Zeidde...sexta parte” to Sahagún[1028].  Queen Urraca donated property to León Santa María by charter dated 22 Jul 1109, subscribed by "Petrus Ansuriz Carrionensium comes, Gumez Gunzaluiz Castellanorum comes, Rudericus Munioni Asturensium comes, Froila Didaci Legionensium comes, Petrus Froilaz Gallecie comes, Suarius Ueremudiz consul Gallecie, Aluarus Fanniz Toletule dux, Munio Guterriz maiordomus palacii, Petrus Gunzaluiz armiger regis, Fernandus Gunzaluiz, Adefonsus Telliz, Tellus Telliz, Fernandus Telliz"[1029]Salazar y Acha states that Alfonso Téllez was the son of Tello Gutiérrez[1030], but it does not appear that this can be correct.  Salcedo states that, according to Salazar y Castro, the father of Alfonso Téllez was "conde don Tello emparentado con los reyes de León" living in 1060, whose sons were "Alfonso, Tello y Hernán" who all assisted at the donation of the palacio de Ceifa to the archbishop of Santiago dated 1103 and at the assembly held at San Isidro de Dueñas in 1115 with Queen Urraca[1031].  Mayordomo of Alfonso VI King of Castile 2 Jan 1102 to 23 Mar 1103.  Señor de Montealegre 1116.  m ---.  The name of Alfonso's wife is not known.  Alfonso & his wife had [one child]:

i)          TELLO Fernández (-killed in battle Aceca 1133).  "…Fernando Téllez, Tello Fernández, Fernando Fernández" subscribed the charter dated 1110 under which Queen Urraca granted "las villas de Foramnata y San Estebán en el territorio de Frómista" to "la condes Enderquina"[1046]"Tello Fernández dominante La Torre de Monmojon" is named in a charter of Queen Urraca dated 20 Jan 1116[1047].  "Enderquina uxor comitis domi Suarii" donated property "in villa…Taliatura…et post obitum porcionem fratris mei Ruderici Guterriz" to Burgos Cathedral by charter dated 4 Mar 1120, witnessed by "de palatio regine et de militibus curie: Xemenus Lupiz maiordomus curie, Rudericus Vermudez, Rudericus Martiniz filius comitis, Tel Fernandiz…Ranemirus filius comitis Froila, comes supradictus Suarius, comes Petrus Gonzaluiz, frater eius Rudericus Gonzaluiz, Petro Lopiz et frater eius Lop Lopez"[1048]m [MARÍA, daughter of --- (-after 28 May 1172).  "Pedro y Orovida Martínez" sold "su heredad en Becerrilejo" to "doña María y a sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" by charter dated 7 Apr 1171[1049]"Marina y sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" exchanged properties by charter dated 28 May 1172[1050].  It is not certain that María/Marina was the widow of Tello Férnandez.  If she was the mother of Gutierre Téllez and Urraca Téllez who are shown below (and who appear to have been the children of Tello Fernández), she would have been extremely old in 1172.]  Tello & his wife had [three] children: 

(a)       [FERNANDO Téllez (-after 28 May 1172).  "Pedro y Orovida Martínez" sold "su heredad en Becerrilejo" to "doña María y a sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" by charter dated 7 Apr 1171[1051]"Marina y sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" exchanged properties by charter dated 28 May 1172[1052].  As pointed out above, the chronology is unfavourable for Fernando, son of Maria/Marina, to have been the son of Tello Fernández, given the likely birth dates of the children of the latter.] 

(b)       GUTIERRE Téllez ([1100/10]-after 1 Sep 1166).  Alfonso VIII King of Castile granted "la mitad del castillo y la villa de Aceca" to "don Gutierre Téllez y a su mujer doña Urraca" by charter dated 1 Sep 1166[1053].  ["Pedro y Orovida Martínez" sold "su heredad en Becerrilejo" to "doña María y a sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" by charter dated 7 Apr 1171[1054]"Marina y sus hijos Fernando y Gutierre Téllez" exchanged properties by charter dated 28 May 1172[1055].  It is not certain that these two charters could refer to Gutierre Téllez, presumed son of Tello Fernández, as his mother "doña María" would have been extremely old at those dates.  In addition, there are three charters, apparently referring to the same person, which are far too late to relate to Gutierre, son of Tello Fernández: "Gutier Téllez" exchanged half of a property with the monastery of Villamayor by charter dated Jul 1199[1056]; "Gutier Téllez" sold half of Santa María de Cigoñera to the monastery of Villamayor by charter dated 1200[1057]; "Gutier Téllez" sold properties to the monastery of Villamayor by charter dated May 1211[1058].]

(c)       URRACA Téllez ([1100/10]-after 1156).  Salazar y Acha records her parentage and marriage[1059].  Her birth date is estimated based on her having five grandchildren in 1156.  King Alfonso VII granted “regalengo...in...villa...Castrolino...in Aradoi” to “Didaco Munioz meo maiori domus et uxori eius Vrrache Telez” by charter dated Aug 1142[1060]"Didago Moniz et uxor mea Urraca Tellez…cum filio meo Bosone et filia mea Maiore Moniz ceterisque nepotibus meis Enego Gustioz, Didago Gustioz, Ferrando Petriz, Maiore Gustioz, Urraca Gustioz" donated property in San Martín de los Álamos to San Zoilo de Carrión by charter dated 1156[1061]m DIEGO Muñoz, son of MUNIO Díaz & his wife --- (-after 1156).  

ii)         [FERNANDO Fernández (-after 1110).  "…Fernando Téllez, Tello Fernández, Fernando Fernández" subscribed the charter dated 1110 under which Queen Urraca granted "las villas de Foramnata y San Estebán en el territorio de Frómista" to "la condesa Enderquina"[1062]The order of names in this subscription list suggests that Fernando Fernández may have been the younger brother of Tello Fernández.] 

 

 

GUTIERRE Téllez, son of [TELLO Fernández] & his wife [María ---] ([1100/10]-after 1 Sep 1166).  The parentage shown here for Gutierre Téllez is attractive because of the connection with Aceca, where his supposed father was killed in battle.  According to Salazar y Acha, the Girón family descended from Tello Gutiérrez, who was mayordomo mayor of Alfonso VI King of Castile between 1071 and 1075[1063].  However, this appears to be chronologically improbable as he is last mentioned in 1077.  Alfonso VIII King of Castile granted "la mitad del castillo y la villa de Aceca" to "don Gutierre Téllez y a su mujer doña Urraca" by charter dated 1 Sep 1166[1064]

16.      [[BERENGUELA] González Girón .  Argote Molina records that "don Juan Alfonso Tello señor de Alburquerque", oldest son of "don Alonso Tellez" and his second wife, married "doña Leonor Gonçalez Giron, hija de don Gonçalo Ruyz Giron, como escrive Hieronymo de Gudiel en el cap. 9 no obstante que el Conde don Pedro la llama doña Elvira"[1165]As noted above, the Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D.

Elvira Gonçalez Giron"[1166].  From a chronological point of view, it is unlikely that the wife of Juan Alfonso Tellez de Meneses, who died in 1268, was the daughter of Gonzalo Rodríguez by his first marriage.  However, as noted above, Salazar y Castro records that Leonor, daughter of Gonzalo by his second wife, married Gonzalo Gómez de Aza.  Assuming that her parentage is as stated by the Nobiliario, it is likely that Juan Alfonso´s wife was the daughter of Gonzalo Rodríguez by his second marriage, but presumably was not named Leonor.  The Livro Velho records that "D. João Affonso" married "D. Beringuela Giroa"[1167]m JUAN Alfonso Téllez de Meneses, son of ALFONSO Téllez de Meneses & his second wife Teresa Sanches de Portugal (-1268).]

Chapter 14.  LARA

 

 

A.      LARA

 

 

The Lara family has been studied in detail by Simon Doubleday[1299].  The family between the 11th and 13th centuries is the subject of a doctoral thesis by Antonio Sánchez de Moro[1300].  According to Salazar y Castro[1301], the Lara family line was founded by Nuño González, son of Gonzalo Fernández de Castilla, who was the eldest son of Fernando González Conde Castilla & his first wife Sancha Sánchez de Navarra.  Gonzalo Núñez, who died in 1103 and is shown below, would have been his great grandson, son of Nuño González, grandson of Gonzalo Núñez.  Menéndez Pidal suggests[1302] that Gonzalo Núñez [de Lara] was the son of Nuño Salvadórez, brother of Gonzalo Salvadórez, great grandsons of Fernando González Conde de Castilla descended from his younger son García I Conde de Castilla, although Torres cites no sources on which this speculation is based[1303]

 

 

GONZALO Núñez, son of NUÑO --- & his wife --- ([1050/55]-after 12 Dec 1105).  His birth date range is estimated from the estimated birth date of his son Pedro, and his first known subscription to a charter of the monastery of Oña dated 12 May 1075[1304].  The parentage of Gonzalo Núñez is not known.  His relationship with the Salvadórez family was first proposed in the 17th century by Fray Prudencio de Sandoval, who suggested that he was the son of Nuño Álvarez supposed son of Álvaro Salvadórez[1305].  However, this hypothesis is not consistent with Gonzalo´s estimated date of birth.  Menéndez Pidal suggested that Gonzalo was the son of a brother of Gonzalo Salvadórez, possible great grandson of Fernando González Conde de Castilla, whom he suggests was named Nuño Salvadórez (about whose existence there is no other indication)[1306].  Torres cites no sources on which this speculation is based[1307].  Sánchez de Mora highlights the conclusion “evidente” of a relationship between Gonzalo Núñez and the Salvadórez, Alfonso and Álvarez families, but concludes that it is only a hypothesis that he could have been the son of Munio González (died after 1082), who he suggests may have been the brother of Salvador González (see the document CASTILE NOBILITY)[1308].  One of the difficulties with this possible conclusion is the difference between the names “Munio” and Nuño”: it is correct that examples can be found where there is confusion between the two in contemporary documentation, but these are isolated and do not provide a sufficient basis for proposing an affiliation which depends on such confusion.  All this speculation seems too uncertain to posit even a possible parentage of Gonzalo Núñez in the present document.  "Gundissalvo Nunnez…cum uxore mea dompna Goto et mea cognate dompna Urraca et dompna Ariel Nunniz" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated 1087[1309].  Tenente of Lara and Auxonia between 1089 and 1094[1310].  "Alfonsus rex" confirmed donations of property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated 25 Nov 1089, witnessed by "…sennor Goncalvo Nunnez de Lara…"[1311]...Gonsalvo Nunniz...” witnessed the charter dated 1 May 1092 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile confirmed the prohibition of the entry of women into Valvanera[1312]"Senior Gonzalvo Nunnez et uxor mea domna Goto, dominantes Lara…cum filiis nostris" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de Cogollo by charter dated 1095[1313].  "Gundisalbus Nunniz cum coniuge mea Domna Goto" donated property to Sahagún monastery on "puellam Taresam" entering the monastery of San Pedro de Molinos as a nun by charter dated 11 Apr 1095[1314].  His last known subscription is a charter of the monastery of Oña dated 12 Dec 1105[1315]

m GOTO, daughter of ---.  "Gundissalvo Nunnez…cum uxore mea dompna Goto et mea cognate dompna Urraca et dompna Ariel Nunniz" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated 1087[1316].  Torres suggests that she was GOTO Núñez, daughter of NUÑO Álvarez & his [second] wife María Gutiérrez[1317].  If “Urraca” in this document can be identified as Urraca Núñez, daughter of Nuño Álvarez, and if “cognata” can be interpreted in its strict sense of sister-in-law, the 1087 charter corroborates this proposed parentage.  According to Salazar y Castro, she was the daughter of Gonzalo Salvadórez (see above)[1318].  "Senior Gonzalvo Nunnez et uxor mea domna Goto, dominantes Lara…cum filiis nostris" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de Cogollo by charter dated 1095[1319].  "Gundisalbus Nunniz cum coniuge mea Domna Goto" donated property to Sahagún monastery on "puellam Taresam" entering the monastery of San Pedro de Molinos as a nun by charter dated 11 Apr 1095[1320].  Gonzalo & his wife had [seven] children: 

1.         TERESA González .  "Gundisalbus Nunniz cum coniuge mea Domna Goto" donated property to Sahagún monastery on "puellam Taresam" entering the monastery of San Pedro de Molinos as a nun by charter dated 11 Apr 1095[1321]

Ecclesia Ruina” to Segovia Cathedral by charter dated 3 Feb 1137[1331].  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that, after disputes arose once more, Rodrigo González was forced to travel to Jerusalem.  On his return to Spain in 1139, he stayed at the court of the taifa King of Valencia having been refused entry to Castile, but caught leprosy and left again for Jerusalem where he died[1332]"Rodericus comes…cum consanguinibus meis: Semeno Enechez et mater eius dompna Maria, Don Garcia, D.

a)         [RODRIGO Rodríguez .  Salazar y Castro records his parentage[1342].  The charter dated to [1166/80], under which [his supposed brother] "Petrus Ruderici filius comiti" donated land "in Gormezes" to Burgos Cathedral, with the consent of "neptis mee Marie de Almenar"[1343], suggests that Rodrigo is unlikely to have been the brother of Pedro Rodríguez.  In that document, "neptis mee Marie de Almenar" is identified as the daughter of Pedro´s deceased sister Elvira, wife of Armengol [VII] Comte de Urgell.  The consent given to the donation would have been given in her capacity as Pedro´s heir.  If that is correct, it is unlikely that Pedro had other brothers and sisters who left children.  m ---.  The name of Rodrigo´s wife is not known.  Rodrigo & his wife had two children:] 

i)          [RODRIGO Rodríguez (-after 1219).  According to Salazar y Castro, Rodrigo Rodríguez, husband of Inés Pérez, was the son of Rodrigo Rodríguez [de Lara][1344]However, the primary source documentation suggests that Rodrigo Rodríguez was a member of the Girón family, where he is shown in the present document. 

ii)         [SANCHA Rodríguez de Lara Salazar y Castro records her parentage and marriage, citing a charter dated 1200 under which "domna Sancia Roderici…cum fratre meo Roderico Roderici" donated property in la villa de Peñalva to the monastery of San Andrés de Valveni, with the consent of "Gonzalo Roderici marito meo"[1345]m as his first wife, GONZALO Rodríguez Giron, son of RODRIGO Gutiérrez Girón & his first wife María Rodríguez ([1165]-before 1234).]

d)         daughter.  According to Reilly, two daughters had been born of Rodrigo's first marriage by 10 May 1125[1355].  However, Farmerie and Taylor say that Pedro and Elvira were the only children of Rodrigo González de Lara[1356].  Don Rodrigo González joined with "his daughters" by his first marriage in 1125 in a donation to the monastery of Vega[1357]

PEDRO González, son of GONZALO Núñez & his wife Goto [Núñez] ([1080/85]-killed Bayonne 16 Oct 1130).  “Pedro González” was Alférez of Alfonso VI King of Castile [1089 to 1091], and 30 Sep 1107 to 10 Sep 1109[1363], although it is assumed that the former citations refer to a different person assuming that Pedro's birth date is correctly estimated as shown here.  Named armiger regis by the king in 1098 and 1108[1364].  Tenente of Lara from 1107 to 1129, of Peñafiel in 1113.  Queen Urraca donated property to León Santa María by charter dated 22 Jul 1109, subscribed by "Petrus Ansuriz Carrionensium comes, Gumez Gunzaluiz Castellanorum comes, Rudericus Munioni Asturensium comes, Froila Didaci Legionensium comes, Petrus Froilaz Gallecie comes, Suarius Ueremudiz consul Gallecie, Aluarus Fanniz Toletule dux, Munio Guterriz maiordomus palacii, Petrus Gunzaluiz armiger regis, Fernandus Gunzaluiz, Adefonsus Telliz, Tellus Telliz, Fernandus Telliz"[1365]Conde 1110.  The dating clause of a charter dated 1110, under which Alfonso I King of Aragon donated property to Valvanera, records “...comes Petrus, Laram et Medinam...[1366]"Urraca…tocius Ispanie regina" confirmed rights of the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated Aug 1110, confirmed by "…Petrus Gonzalvez comes de Metina…"[1367]...Petrus Gundisalui comes...” confirmed the charter dated 29 Jul 1118 under which Queen Urraca donated Sobrado “inter Montem Rosum et terram de Speluca”, which King Fernando I had granted to “avo vestro Sigeredo Aluiti et...uxore sue Adosinda Arie”, to “Vermudo Petri et fratri vestro Fernando Petri[1368]"Urracha…Ispanie regina, regis Aldefonsi regineque Constantie filia" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 26 Mar 1119, confirmed by "…Petrus Gonsalvi comes, Rodericus Gonsalvi…"[1369].  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 P. in Lara et in Castella...[1370].  "Petrus Larensis comes" donated property to the abbey of Silos, with the advice of "domine mee Urrache regine", by charter dated 2 Sep 1125, confirmed by "Rodericus comes frater comitis Petri, Fernandus Garciez maior, Fernandus Garciez minor, Garcia Enneget nepos comitis Petri…Petro Lopet de Montfort, Petro Gonçalvet de Munio…"[1371].  After the death of Queen Urraca in 1126, he allied himself with Alfonso I King of Aragon.  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris names "the Castilians Count Pedro de Lara and his brother Count Rodrigo González" as leaders of the opponents of Alfonso VII King of Castile on his accession in 1126[1372].  He reluctantly submitted to the authority of Alfonso VII King of Castile, but was later banished.  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that Alfonso VII King of Castile captured "Count Pedro de Lara and his son-in-law Count Bertran" at Palencia and imprisoned them at León until they surrendered all their castles[1373].  The same source records that Pedro left for Bayonne to join the king of Aragon, where he challenged Alphonse Jourdain Comte de Toulouse to a duel, broke his arm after falling from his horse, and died a few days later[1374]

m ([late 1108/1109]) as her second husband, EVA, widow of conde GARCÍA Ordóñez, daughter of --- (-after 1147).  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos records that "Conde D. Pedro" married "D. Eva"[1375].  According to Salazar y Castro[1376], she was Eva Pérez de Traba, daughter of Pedro Froílaz de Traba & his first wife Urraca Fróilaz.  Barton says there is no documentary proof to substantiate this claim[1377].  Menéndez Pidal de Navascués[1378] suggests that she was a countess of French origin, Szabolcs de Vajay and Salazar[1379] suggesting more specifically that she was the daughter of Aimery II Vicomte de Rochechouart whose mother was named Eva, and whose name in the form "Almanricus" may have been the origin of the name "Manrique" given to her son by her second marriage.  It is all the more improbable that Eva was the daughter of Pedro Froílaz because her son by her first husband married one of Pedro's younger daughters, who would have been his aunt if the relationship was correct.  She names her children (in order) Manrique, Álvaro, Nuño, Elvira, María and Milia in a charter dated 1147[1380].  

Mistress (1): [1112/14] URRACA Queen of Castile and León, daughter of ALFONSO VI King of Castile and León & his third wife Berta de Bourgogne-Comté (late 1080[1381]-Saldaña 8 Mar 1126, bur León, Monastery of San Isidro).  The Crónica Latina records that the queen accepted “la excesiva familiaridad del conde Pedro de Lara, padre del conde Malrico, del conde Nuño y del conde Álvaro” and that it was said that they had “un hijo llamado Fernando Hurtado[1382]Szabolcs de Vajay states that there is no evidence for a secret marriage between Queen Urraca and Pedro González de Lara[1383]

Pedro[1461]

m firstly ([1170/73]) as her second husband, Infanta doña SANCHA de Navarra, widow of GASTON [V] Vicomte de Béarn, daughter of GARCIA VI "el Restaurador" King of Navarre & his second wife Urraca Alfonso “la Asturiana” de Castilla (1148-1176).  Rodrigo de Toledo records that "Rex Garsias tertiam filiam…Sanciam" married "Gastoni vicecomiti Bearnensi", that the couple died childless and that she married secondly "Petro comiti Molinensi" by whom she had "filium…Aimericum qui fuit vicecomes Narbonensis"[1462]The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos records that "Conde D.

D. 23 Jan 1183) at Anjou records a donation by "P…comes de Lara…comitisse Marger´ uxori mee consanguinee H...angl´ regis" of "Molmera et Handaluz et Agusinu et Eles et Pulucranke…in Hyspania" to Llanthony abbey witnessed by "comes Gaufredus Britannie, J. sine terra, J. comes J, Mauricius de Creon senescallus Andeg, J. Didaci comitis"[1465].  Evans suggests that she was Margaret of Scotland, widow firstly of Conan IV "le Petit" Duke of Brittany, Earl of Richmond, and secondly of Humphrey [IV] de Bohun, daughter of Henry of Scotland Earl of Huntingdon and Northumberland & his wife Ada de Warenne of Surrey ([1143/44]-1201, bur Sawtrey Abbey, Herts).  He points out that Llanthony has been founded in 1136 by Miles of Gloucester, whose eldest daughter married Humphrey de Bohun, who was the father of Margaret´s second husband[1466].  If this origin is correct, Pedro´s marriage to Margaret was presumably terminated before her death, given his third marriage.  The difficulty with Evans´s proposal is the obvious age difference between Pedro de Lara and Margaret of Scotland.  Another possibility, which also justifies the connection with Llanthony through the Bohun family and is more satisfactory from a chronological point of view, is that Pedro´s second wife was an otherwise unrecorded daughter of Margaret´s, so Margaret de Bohun, daughter of Humphrey [IV] de Bohun & his wife Margaret of Scotland.  "P…comes…cum uxore mea Marg. cometissa" donated their property "in Asbaladejo et in Cannet et in termino Conchæ" to the Order of Calatrava by charter dated 30 Dec 1187[1467].  "Comes Petrus…cum uxore mea Margarita" donated "hæreditatem de Grudis" to found a monastery, confirmed by "sororum Mariæ et…Santia Marric", by charter dated 11 Mar 1187[1468].  "Petrus…comes…cum uxore mea comitissa domna Margerina" donated vines at Madrid to the Order of Calatrava by charter dated 17 Nov 1189[1469]

m thirdly (after 1195) as her second husband, MAFALDA, widow of PEDRO Rodríguez de Guzmán, daughter of ---.  Alfonso VIII King of Castile confirmed the purchase of property at Tragacete made by the council of Cuenca from "comitissa domna Mafalt, quodam uxore comitis Petri, et de Gonzalvo Petri, filio suo et eiusdem comitis" by charter dated 3 Feb 1202[1470]

Pedro & his first wife had [three] children: 

1.         GARCÍA Pérez (-after 11 Mar 1183).  "Dopna Ermesenda…comitissa" donated "medietatem meam de Molina" held by "comite Almarrico bonæ memore marito meo", to "nepoti meo Garsie Petri hijo comitis Petri, et Santiæ Infantisle", by charter dated 1175[1471]"P…comes…cum filia meo domno G. Petri" donated property "in Cogolludo" to the Order of Calatrava, for the soul of "uxoris meæ Infantis domnæ Santiæ", by charter dated 11 Mar 1183[1472]

2.         [ELVIRA Pérez (-1220).  “Comitissa Gelovira Petri…cum viro meo domno Armengaudo” donated property to León cathedral by charter dated 1182[1473].  “Ermengadus comes Urgellensis et Alvira comitissa” granted “pug de Asfa…[et] kastrum Sancti Vicencii quod est ad radicem Montis Clari in valle Andorra” to "Arnallo de Kastrobono" by charter dated 2 Oct 1190[1474].  Her parentage is also suggested by the charter dated 1228 under which her daughter "Don Orembiax…condesa de Urgel" donated property "en Bretavislo en el Cerrato", inherited from "mie madre la condesa doña Elvira", to "don Nuño Pedrez filio del conde don Pedro, mio cormano", by charter dated Jul 1228[1475].  Although “cormano/congermano” is more often interpreted as cousin, under the suggested reconstruction shown here Nuño Pérez would have been Aurembiax´s maternal uncle, although born from her maternal grandfather´s third marriage and so born around the same time as Aurembiax herself.  Canal Sánchez-Pagín suggests that Elvira, wife of Armengol [VIII], was the daughter of Conde Pedro Alfonso (of the Vela family, see below)[1476].  However, Pedro Alfonso´s daughter Elvira is named in her mother´s 1156 testament and was probably born considerably earlier if her parents´ marriage is correctly dated to [1130].  She is therefore unlikely to have been the same person as the wife of Armengol [VIII], whose daughter´s birth is dated towards the end of the 12th century.  Sánchez de Mora suggests a possible explanation for all these apparent inconsistencies: Armengol [VIII] married twice, firstly “Elvira Pérez” (although Sánchez de Mora appears to accept that she was the daughter of Conde Pedro Alfonso), secondly “Elvira Núñez” who would have been the mother of Aurembiax and who Sánchez de Mora suggests could have been the daughter of Nuño Pérez de Lara (see below).  This would mean that “cormano” could be given its usual interpretation in the 1228 charter of Aurembiax, who would have belonged to the same generation as the beneficiary of that document.  It would also explain another document, dated 20 Apr 1228, under which Aurembiax granted property to “Fernando Álvarez, mio cormano, filio del conde don Alvaro[1477].  In addition, the dating of the birth of Aurembiax herself to [1196] is difficult to understand if she was the daughter of Elvira Pérez, married to her father already in 1182, but would be natural if she was the daughter of a second marriage.  It is recognised that, if Elvira Pérez was the daughter of Conde Pedro Manrique as suggested here, she would only have been about 12 years old at the time of the 1182 charter, presumably recently married, which suggests that this may not be a perfect fit for her parentage.  Another perspective on the marriage is provided by Monfar, who states that Elvira and her husband "tuvieron al principio…algunas discordias" before being finally reconciled, as confirmed by documents under which each promised not to harm the other, Comte Armengol nominating "Guillen de Cardona y Pedro Ferrandiz" as guarantors, the last document in the series being dated 11 Dec 1203[1478].  If this is correct, it would explain the considerable delay after their marriage before the birth of the couple´s daughter and would be consistent with Armengol only having one wife.  In conclusion, there appears to remain considerable uncertainty about the identity of the wife of Armengol [VIII] Conde de Urgel.  Elvira gave possession of Urgel to Pedro II King of Aragon in 1209, on the death of her first husband without male heirs, in return for the king’s protection of her daughter’s rights.  The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified.   Her second husband defended his step-daughter’s rights to Urgel before Jaime I King of Aragon in 1228.  m firstly ([1178]) ARMENGOL [VIII] de Urgell, son of ARMENGOL [VII] "él de Valencia" Comte de Urgell & his wife Dulce de Foix ([1158]-16 Oct 1209, bur San Ilario).  He succeeded his father in 1184 as Conde de Urgellm secondly (before 14 Jan 1214) as his second wife, GUILLEM de Cervera, son of --- (-after 1228).] 

3.         MANRIQUE [Aimery] Pérez (-[Narbonne Saint-Paul] 25 Feb 1239)A charter dated 8 Nov 1193 records an agreement between "comitem Petrum, vicecomitem Narbonæ" and "Guillelmum Monetarium", confirmed by "Aymericus filius...comitis"[1479]He succeeded as Vicomte de Narbonne

Pedro de Molina" and his wife "D. Sancha"[1480]Gonzalo´s correct parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 3 Feb 1202 under which Alfonso VIII King of Castile confirmed the purchase of property at Tragacete made by the council of Cuenca from "comitissa domna Mafalt, quodam uxore comitis Petri, et de Gonzalvo Petri, filio suo et eiusdem comitis"[1481]Señor de Molina y Mesa.  "Gundisaluus dominus Molinæ et…domna Santia Gomecii uxor eius" granted exemptions to certain vassals of the monastery of Piedra by charter dated Nov 1212[1482].  "Gonzaluo Peidres…sennor de Molina…con mie mugier donna Sancha Gomez et con nostro filijo Gonzaluo Gonzaluez" donated mills to Santa María de la Hoz by charter dated 1220[1483].  "Dompnus Gundissaluus Petriç dominus Moline…cum uxore mea dompna Sancia Gomiç et cum filio nostro don Petro Gonçalbeç" protected Santa María de la Hoz by charter dated 1230[1484].  "Dompnus Gundisalvus Perez dominus Molinæ et de Mesa…cum uxore mea Santia Gomez et…meos filios don Pedro Gonzalez, don Marrich, don Guill" confirmed donations made by "mio aboelo el conde don Marrich y mio padre el conde don Pedro", by charter dated 6 Apr 1238[1485]m (before Nov 1212) SANCHA Gómez de Traba, daughter of GÓMEZ Gónzalez de Traba & his second wife Miraglia de Urgell (-after 27 Oct 1246).  The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos records that "D.

6.         [NUÑO Pérez (-after 1228).  Barton names "Aimerico, García, Nuño" as the children of Pedro Manrique de Lara by his first marriage, but does not cite the corresponding primary sources[1513].  His parentage is suggested by the charter dated 1228 under which Aurembiax Condesa de Urgel granted property to “Nuño Pérez fijo del conde don Pedro, mio cormano[1514].  Although “cormano/congermano” is more often interpreted as cousin, under the suggested reconstruction shown here Nuño Pérez would have been Aurembiax´s maternal uncle, although born from her maternal grandfather´s third marriage and so born around the same time as Aurembiax herself.  This interpretation is corroborated by the index of the same document in the collection of Salazar y Castro which reads: "doña Aurembiax condesa de Urgel" donated "la heredad que tiene en Bretavielo en el Cerrato" to "Nuño Pérez de Lara, hijo del conde Pedro Manrique de Lara, mío Cormano" by charter dated 1228[1515].  However, parts of this index entry represent an interpretation of the content of the original document.  If Nuño was the son of Pedro Manrique de Lara, it is assumed that he was born from Pedro´s third marriage as there appears to be no indication that his, presumably older, brother Gonzalo was not the rightful head of the family after the death of their father.]

m (before 14 Feb 1142) TERESA Fernández de Traba, illegitimate daughter of FERNANDO Pérez de Traba Conde de Trastámara & his mistress Infanta doña Teresa Alfonso Queen of Portugal (-León 7 Feb 1180, bur León, monastery of San Isidro).  "Conde Nuño Pérez de Lara y…la condesa doña Teresa Fernández de Trava" donated "las villas de Chillón y de Almadén" to the Order of Calatrava by charter dated 27 Mar 1168[1534]The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Sancha Vermuiz, D. Teresa Vermuiz" as the children of "D. Vermui Perez Potestade de Trava" and his first wife "la Reina D. Teresa de Portugal", in a later passage recording that "El Conde D. Nuño de Lara" married "D. Teresa Fernandez"[1535].  According to Salazar y Castro, Teresa Fernández was the illegitimate daughter of Fernando Pérez de Traba by his mistress Queen Teresa of Portugal[1536]He says that this is inferred from the charter dated 1131, under which “la condesa Doña Loba” donated "el Coto de Anca" to the monastery of San Martín de Joyba, which was subscribed by “comes Fredenandus Petri filius comitis Petri…cum filia mea nata regina dona Tereyxa[1537].  Salazar y Castro also quotes a charter dated 14 Feb 1142 which is confirmed by "comes dom. Munio Petri cum uxore sua comitissa domna Tharasia filia comitis dom. Ferrandi et domnæ Tharasia Regina"[1538].  This all appears straightforward.  However, it is confused by reports that Teresa Fernández married, as his second wife, Fernando II King of León, their children being born in [1178/80].  Lucas de Tuy, for example, records that "Rex Fernandus" married secondly "Tharasiam qua fuerat uxor Nunii comitis de Castella"[1539].  Rodrigo de Jiménez who says that the king married "Tarasiam filiam comitis Fernandi, quæ fuerat uxor comitis Nunii de Castella"[1540].  Salazar y Castro highlights the chronological impossibility that this second marriage could be correct[1541].  Szabolcs de Vajay accepts the second marriage of Teresa Fernández with the king, but supposedly finds the solution to the chronological difficulties by saying that she was Fernando Pérez´s daughter "by Sancha González (and not, as is often alleged, by the Infanta Teresa of Portugal)"[1542].  Unfortunately, this does not resolve the issues.  The marriages of Fernando Pérez de Traba´s children by his legitimate wife are noted between 1142 and 1150, which would place their births in the period [1120/30].  This is still too early for the possible birth date of the second wife of Fernando II King of León, given the births of the couple´s children in [1178/80].  The question is resolved by Salazar y Castro who quotes sources which confirm that the second wife of Fernando II King of León was in fact the daughter of Nuño Pérez de Lara and his wife Teresa Fernández (see below)[1543].  If this is correct, there is no difficulty with asserting that Teresa Fernández was the daughter of the queen of Portugal.  King Alfonso VII granted "Castro Beneavente" to "Nunno Pedrez alferez imperatoris…cum uxore mea Teresa Fernandez" by charter dated 1 Jul 1152[1544]Comes domnus Nuno et coniux mee comitissa domna Taresia...cum filiis nostris” donated "tercias ecclesiarum de Conca" to León Cathedral by charter dated 22 Feb 1170
