     ; Per Med Lands:
     "[EVA . Eva was the daughter of Pedro Fróilaz de Traba according to Salazar y Castro[2708]. This tradition goes back further. The Nobiliario of Pedro Conde de Barcelos names "D. Eva, D. Estevaina Perez, D. Elvira Perez" as the daughters of "Conde D. Pedro Fernandez de Trava que pobló el castillo de Trava"[2709]. Argote Molina also stated in 1588 that "doña Eva Perez de Trava…hija de el Conde don Pedro de Trava Señor de Trastamara" was the wife of "el Conde don Garcia que murio en la batalla de Ucles"[2710]. Barton says that there is no documentary proof to substantiate this claim[2711]. Menéndez Pidal de Navascués[2712] suggests that she was a countess of French origin, Szabolcs de Vajay and Salazar[2713] hypothesising 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 Fróilaz as her son by her first husband married one of Pedro's younger daughters who would have been his aunt if the relationship was correct.

; Per Genealogics:
     “Conde Garcia Ordoñez, señor de Najera y de Grañón, was the son of Ordoño Ordoñea de Nájera and his wife Anderquina. With his wife Urraca Garcez of Navarre, daughter of Garcia V, king of Navarre, and sister of Sancho IV 'el Penalen', also king of Navarre, he had a son Fernando Garcia who would have progeny, and two daughters, Elvira and Mayor.
     “Garcia's public career began late in the reign of Fernando I 'the Great', king of Castile, when he subscribed a charter of 10 May 1062, now in the cartulary of the monastery of Arlanza. During the reign of Fernando's successor in Castile, Sancho II 'el Fuerte', Garcia was a figure on the rise. He subscribed three of the ten surviving royal charters of Sancho's reign, while his father confirmed five. During this time he was associated with Pancorvo in the northeast of the Bureba, along the Way of Saint James _(El Camino de Santiago)_ leading from Miranda del Ebro.
     “In 1072 Sancho II was assassinated, and his brother Alfonso VI succeeded him. On 8 December Alfonso granted a charter to the monastery of San Pedro de Cardeña in Castile. Among the confirmants is Garcia, who was thus among the first to reconcile himself to the new king.
     “In 1074 Garcia was _alférez mayor_ (standard bearer) of Alfonso VI. In 1080 Alfonso sent Garcia to collect tribute owed by the city of Granada. However Garcia supported Abd Allah Emir of Granada when he invaded the Muslim emirate of Seville. Alfonso also sent Rodrigo Diaz ('El Cid') to collect tribute owed to him by Seville. When Rodrigo arrived he found Garcia preparing to attack Seville with a large army. Rodrigo had only a few men, but attacked Garcia and defeated him in a spectacular victory at Cabra. According to legend, Rodrigo went up to Garcia during the battle, grabbed his beard and twisted his nose. These were absolutely deadly insults at the time, and Garcia never forgave him. Rodrigo seized the goods of the attackers and then allowed them to go free.
     “Garcia returned to Burgos ahead of Rodrigo and told Alfonso that Rodrigo had stayed at Seville for longer than was necessary so that he could attack the Granadans and take booty from them. Alfonso did not wait to have a trial. Rodrigo was informed that he had broken his oath of fealty and homage by being faithless and seeking his own advantage at the expense of his lord's. Alfonso dissolved the contract between them and seized all of the property that Rodrigo held of him. As king, Alfonso declared that Rodrigo had defrauded the realm, seized all of the goods that he had won in battle against Garcia and confiscated all of his private holdings and possessions. As punishment for Rodrigo's 'crimes', Alfonso declared that he must leave the realm within three days, taking nothing with him and receiving aid or assistance from no one. It was to be some years before Rodrigo returned to Alfonso's favour. His subsequent deeds became the stuff of legend.
     “By May (or at least by 6 December) 1081 Alfonso had placed the territory of La Rioja in Garcia's hands, with his chief seat at Nájera. To that same month is dated the last charter recording the presence of the Cid at Alfonso's court.
     “Sometime shortly after his return to court in 1080, Garcia was raised to the rank of count, the highest recognised rank in the kingdom before the 13th century and which meant a seat on the royal council as well as a grant of fiefs and other lands. At the same time as his return to court, Garcia thus received a vast fief comprising the erstwhile southern provinces of Navarre, a promotion to the highest aristocratic title (that of count) in the realm, and the hand in marriage of a Navarrese princess, presumably through Alfonso's actions, since the Navarrese royal family had fallen under his protection after the assassination of Sancho IV of Navarre in 1076.
     “In August 1084 Garcia made a donation to the Benedictine monastery of San Adrián de Palma, By 20 November 1085, according to a document in the cartulary of San Millán, Garcia's lordship was extended south to include Calahorra, an episcopal seat. By 1089 it also included Grañón and by 1092 Madriz. At this time, corresponding to the _alférez_-ship of Pedro González de Lara from 1088 to 1091, Garcia was the most prominent magnate in the kingdom and he frequently attended the royal court, confirming eleven charters out of a total of eighteen from these years, the most of any count. At about this time, however, Raymond de Bourgogne, a newcomer to the kingdom, was married to the king's eldest daughter Urraca, and he quickly surpassed Garcia in power, although the latter still confirmed fifteen of twenty-seven royal diplomas of the period 1092-1088, more than any other magnate.
     “In 1096 Pedro I, king of Aragón and Navarre, besieged Huesca, a city of the taifa of Zaragoza. In the late autumn of 1096, the ruler of Zaragoza, al-Mustain II, received assistance from his nominal overlord, Alfonso VI, in the persons of Garcia Ordóñez de Nájera and Gonzalo Núñez de Lara. Alongside the Zaragozans, the Castilian counts led their personal retinues against the besiegers, but were defeated on 18 November in the Battle of Alcoraz. Garcia also took part in the Battle of Consuegra on 15 August 1097. This campaign had begun as planned harassment of Aragón, perhaps a concerted action with Zaragoza to retake Huesca, but it was diverted by the arrival of an Almoravid army in the south centre of the peninsula. The result was a Castilian-Leónese defeat. Garcia's participation in court politics appears to have continued to decline after this. Of twenty-three royal charters issued between 1100 and 1107, a year before his death, he confirmed eleven, still a sizable portion, but now less than half.
     “On 1 February 1095 Garcia and Urraca granted a _fuero_ to the town of Fresnillo de las Dueñas. In 1106 Garcia made a donation to San Millán.
     “According to the _De rebus Hispaniae,_ Alfonso VI named Garcia tutor for his only son Sancho of Castile. On 29 May 1108 he took part in the Battle of Uclés, where he died defending the life of the young Sancho, who would die in the same battle shortly after. His death is recorded in the _De rebus Hispaniae,_ the _Chronicon mundi,_ and the _Chronica naierensis,_ where the battle is dated to 24 June. The death of seven counts at Uclés led the Christians to refer to the site as _Septem Comitem (Siete Condes)._ The last reference to Garcia as living occurs in a private document of the monastery of Valbanera in the Rioja dated that year. His death left a power vacuum in the Rioja, which for much of the twelfth century fell outside Castilian control.”.5

; Per Fletcher: "Garcia Ordóñez...was a contemporary of Rodrigo [El Cid], and like him a Castilian of aristocratic background. He first appears in surviving records in the 1060s. Like Rodrigo he subscribed several of the charters of Sancho II and successfully transferred his loyalties to Alfonso VI, whom he served as alferez or armiger in 1074. He and Rodrigo obviously knew each other well...one of the guarantors of Rodrigo's marriage settlement...Alfonso made Garcia count of Najera and married him to Urraca, the sister of the murdered king."1

The dating clause of a charter dated 20 Nov 1085, which records the consecration of the church of San Pedro de Llodio, names "…comite Garcia obtinente Nagera et Calahorra…"[307]. "Comite domno Garsea in Naiara" is named in charters concerning donations to the monastery of Valbanera dated between 1085 and 1101[308]. The dating clause of a charter dated 1089, under which "Eximina Didaz" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, names "…comite domno Garsea dominator Naiera et Grannione…"[309]. The dating clause of a charter dated 1092, under which "Monnio Sempron et Dominico Ferrero" bought property at Madriz, names "…dompno Garsia dominante in Naiera et Matrice…"[310]. “...Garsea Ordoniz comes...” witnessed the charter dated 1 May 1092 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile confirmed the prohibition of the entry of women into Valvanera[311]. He was a powerful supporter of Alfonso VI King of Castile and participated in numerous campaigns against the Muslims. "Adefonsus…Ispanie imperator" permitted the abbey of Silos to establish outposts near the abbey, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berte regine", by charter dated 20 Jan [1096/98], confirmed by "Garcia Ordoniz…"[312].

"…Garcia Ordonici comes…" subscribed the charter dated 14 May 1107 under which "Adefonsus…Toletani imperii rex…cum…uxore mea Helisabet regina" approved the mint of Santiago de Compostela[314]. The Anales Toledanos record that “Infant D. Sancho è al Conde D. Garcia” were killed “cerca de Uclés III Kal Jun” in 1108[315].
     "m firstly ([1076]) URRACA de Navarra, daughter of GARCÍA V Sánchez King of Navarre & his wife Stephanie de Foix (-after 1 Feb 1095). “Comite Garcia Ordoniz, uxor eius comitissa domna Urraka, Ermesindis soror eius…” subscribed the charter dated 18 Apr 1081 under which “Ranimirus filius Garsie regis et Stefanie regina” donated property to Santa María de Nájera[316].

The charter dated 1089, in which "domno comite Garsia et nobilissima et nobilior orta nata dompna Urraca comitissa, dominantibus Naiera" are named, hints at an illustrious ancestry[319]. Her parentage is specified clearly in the charter dated 1 Mar 1145 under which her daughter “Domna Maior filia comitis Garsie et comitisse domne Urrache, filie regis Garsie, filii regis Sanctii maioris” donated “una viña en Calahorra” to Santa María Real de Nájera, for the souls of “filiorum meorum”[320].
     "m secondly (before 1105) as her first husband, EVA, daughter of ---. The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. Salazar y Castro states[321] that she was Eva Pérez de Traba, daughter of Pedro Froílaz de Traba & his first wife Urraca Fróilaz. This tradition goes back further, as Argote Molina stated in 1588 that "doña Eva Perez de Trava…hija de el Conde don Pedro de Trava Señor de Trastamara" was the wife of "el Conde don Garcia que murio en la batalla de Ucles"[322]. Barton says that there is no documentary proof to substantiate this claim[323]. Menéndez Pidal de Navascués[324] suggests that she was a countess of French origin, Szabolcs de Vajay and Salazar[325] hypothesising 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 Eva's son by her second marriage. It is all the more improbable that Eva was the daughter of Pedro Froílaz as her son by her first husband married one of Pedro's younger daughters, who would have been his aunt if the relationship was correct. Doña Eva married secondly ([late 1108/1109]) Pedro González de Lara, who later became the lover of Urraca Queen of Castile.
     "Conde García & his first wife had [four] children:
1. [ÁLVARO García (-after 1089). Salazar y Acha suggests that Álvaro García, alférez of Alfonso VI King of Castile 21 Jul 1087 to 30 Apr 1089, may have been the son of García Ordóñez[326]. However, assuming that the marriage of his supposed parents is correctly estimated to [1076] as shown above, he would have been young to have held office at court at that time.]
2. ELVIRA García .
3. FERNANDO García .
4. MAYOR García . m conde GÓMEZ Peláez, son of PELAYO Gómez & his wife Elvira Muñoz (-1118).

     "Conde García & his second wife had one child:
5. GARCÍA García de Aza (1106, before 29 Sep-16 Dec 1160)."

A charter dated 6 Dec 1081, under which "Blasko Milian et uxor mea Monoca" sold property, names "… et in Nagera comite Garcia Hordonioz…" in the dating clause directly following the name of the king[300]. The dating clause of a charter dated 1081, under which "Vita Gomiz…" donated property to the monastery of San Lorenzo de Masoa, names "regnante rege Aldefonso in Legione et in Castella, comite Garsia in Naiara…"[301]. “Garsea Ordoniz comite, Roderico frater eius...” subscribed the charter dated 1 May 1082 under which “Didacus...presbiter” donated the monastery “in rigo de Pisorga in villa...Olmos quem abeo de meos abos” to San Pedro de Cardeña[302]. The dating clause of a charter dated 27 Apr 1084, under which “Obeco Flayniz” sold “erreditatem...que abemus de abibus et parentibus nostris in Kampo Tauro villas...Ualle et Quintanella...meas rationes” to “Guter Nebozaniz et uxoris uestra Scemena Obequiz et filiis vestris”, records “...in Nazara Gartia Ordoniz, armiger regis Rodrigo Ordoniz...”[303].

The dating clause of a charter dated 20 Nov 1085, which records the consecration of the church of San Pedro de Llodio, names "…comite Garcia obtinente Nagera et Calahorra…"[307]. "Comite domno Garsea in Naiara" is named in charters concerning donations to the monastery of Valbanera dated between 1085 and 1101[308]. The dating clause of a charter dated 1089, under which "Eximina Didaz" donated property to the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla, names "…comite domno Garsea dominator Naiera et Grannione…"[309]. The dating clause of a charter dated 1092, under which "Monnio Sempron et Dominico Ferrero" bought property at Madriz, names "…dompno Garsia dominante in Naiera et Matrice…"[310]. “...Garsea Ordoniz comes...” witnessed the charter dated 1 May 1092 under which Alfonso VI King of Castile confirmed the prohibition of the entry of women into Valvanera[311]. He was a powerful supporter of Alfonso VI King of Castile and participated in numerous campaigns against the Muslims. "Adefonsus…Ispanie imperator" permitted the abbey of Silos to establish outposts near the abbey, with the consent of "uxoris mee Berte regine", by charter dated 20 Jan [1096/98], confirmed by "Garcia Ordoniz…"[312]. A charter dated 1106 records "eodem anno in die sancti Michaelis" that "comes Garsia" baptised "suum filium in Sancti Emiliani ecclesiam", the dating clause naming "…Garsia comite dominante Calagurra et Naiera…"[313]. "…Garcia Ordonici comes…" subscribed the charter dated 14 May 1107 under which "Adefonsus…Toletani imperii rex…cum…uxore mea Helisabet regina" approved the mint of Santiago de Compostela[314]. The Anales Toledanos record that “Infant D. Sancho è al Conde D. Garcia” were killed “cerca de Uclés III Kal Jun” in 1108[315].
     "m firstly ([1076]) URRACA de Navarra, daughter of GARCÍA V Sánchez King of Navarre & his wife Stephanie de Foix (-after 1 Feb 1095). “Comite Garcia Ordoniz, uxor eius comitissa domna Urraka, Ermesindis soror eius…” subscribed the charter dated 18 Apr 1081 under which “Ranimirus filius Garsie regis et Stefanie regina” donated property to Santa María de Nájera[316]. "Gassea…comes…cum…coniuge Urracha comitissa" donated property to the monastery of San Adrián de las Palmas by charter dated 13 Aug 1084, subscribed by "Senior Eneco Acenariz"[317]. “Garseanus comes, Urraka soror illius…” confirmed the charter dated 27 May [1085] by which “Renemirus infans, prolis Garseani principis” donated property to Santa María de Nájera[318]. The charter dated 1089, in which "domno comite Garsia et nobilissima et nobilior orta nata dompna Urraca comitissa, dominantibus Naiera" are named, hints at an illustrious ancestry[319]. Her parentage is specified clearly in the charter dated 1 Mar 1145 under which her daughter “Domna Maior filia comitis Garsie et comitisse domne Urrache, filie regis Garsie, filii regis Sanctii maioris” donated “una viña en Calahorra” to Santa María Real de Nájera, for the souls of “filiorum meorum”[320].
     "m secondly (before 1105) as her first husband, EVA, daughter of ---. The primary source which confirms her marriage has not yet been identified. Salazar y Castro states[321] that she was Eva Pérez de Traba, daughter of Pedro Froílaz de Traba & his first wife Urraca Fróilaz. This tradition goes back further, as Argote Molina stated in 1588 that "doña Eva Perez de Trava…hija de el Conde don Pedro de Trava Señor de Trastamara" was the wife of "el Conde don Garcia que murio en la batalla de Ucles"[322]. Barton says that there is no documentary proof to substantiate this claim[323]. Menéndez Pidal de Navascués[324] suggests that she was a countess of French origin, Szabolcs de Vajay and Salazar[325] hypothesising 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 Eva's son by her second marriage. It is all the more improbable that Eva was the daughter of Pedro Froílaz as her son by her first husband married one of Pedro's younger daughters, who would have been his aunt if the relationship was correct. Doña Eva married secondly ([late 1108/1109]) Pedro González de Lara, who later became the lover of Urraca Queen of Castile.
     "Conde García & his first wife had [four] children:
1. [ÁLVARO García (-after 1089). Salazar y Acha suggests that Álvaro García, alférez of Alfonso VI King of Castile 21 Jul 1087 to 30 Apr 1089, may have been the son of García Ordóñez[326]. However, assuming that the marriage of his supposed parents is correctly estimated to [1076] as shown above, he would have been young to have held office at court at that time.]
2. ELVIRA García .
3. FERNANDO García .
4. MAYOR García . m conde GÓMEZ Peláez, son of PELAYO Gómez & his wife Elvira Muñoz (-1118).

     "Conde García & his second wife had one child:
5. GARCÍA García de Aza (1106, before 29 Sep-16 Dec 1160)."

; per Ravilious: [quote] Another route to the nobility was via Urraca, daughter of Garcia Sanchez III, the eldest son of Sancho III. Following the assassination of her brother, she was married off to noble Garcia Ordonez. Salazar y Acha had previously suggested that they were parents of Fernando Garcia de Hita, founder of the Castro lineage, and he is confident of this identification, ("to me it is more than merely hypothesis"). A
daughter of the latter was wife of Rodrigo Martinez (brother of Osorio Martinez, founder of the Osorio) and then mistress of Alfonso VII. Another daughter of Garcia Ordoniez was Maria, wife of Gomez Pelaez, from who descend various Urracas in the Roa, Guzman and Aza kindreds (no details are given). He also makes a novel hypothesis (new to me, at least) that a Urraca Raimundez who married nobleman Alfonso Vermudez, (son of Vermudo Oveques) was probably daughter of Ramon/Raimund, the fratricidal son of Garcia Sanchez III, who fled to Zaragoza following his brother's murder. No family is known but with the rarity of both names and the high status of the groom, this seems (to him) likely. [end quote]12

Wadih undertook to pay the counts 100 dinars each day and the wages of their troops on campaign. They took their obligations seriously - the year 1010 was called 'the year of the Catalns' by Islamic chroniclers - and in the campaigning of that summer the count of Urgel and no less than three fighting bishops (Barcelona, Gerona and Vich) were killed."11 GAV-29.

; Per Genealogics:
     "Armengol, called 'el de Córdoba', was born about 975, the second son of Borrell II, conde de Barcelona, and his first wife Ledgarda de Toulouse. He was the second of the counts of Urgel and famous mainly for his participation in the _Reconquista._
     "A man of culture, Armengol was open to influences from wider Europe and he made two voyages to Rome, in 998 and 1001. He was a stimulus to his nobles in making pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela or Le Puy. He reformed the judiciary of his county to make justice more available to all. He also began to reassert his authority over the outlaying castles of his realm, whose lords were acting independently of his power.
     "Armengol also maintained an intense war against the caliphate of Córdoba. In 1003 Urgel was invaded by Abd al-Malik al-Muzaffar. Aided by his brother Ramon Borrell I, conde de Barcelona, Bernardo I 'Tallaferro', conde de Besalu et de Ripoli, and Bernardo's brother Wifredo III, conde de Cerdaña et de Berga, Armengol defeated the army of Abd al-Malik at the Battle of Torà, followed by the tighter Battle of Albesa. He was captured by Abd al-Malik, the Córdoban hajib, during reprisals in the summer, but was free by March 1004. In 1008 he led several expeditions against the Moors. In 1010 he participated in the expedition of his brother Ramon Borrell I, conde de Barcelona, against Córdoba itself. He died nearby at Castell de Bacar on 11 September 1010, about thirty five years of age.
     "Before 10 July 1000, Armengol married Tetberga (de Provence), who may have been a daughter of Artaud I, count of Forez, by his wife Theutberge of Limoges. They had two children, his successor Armengol II who would have progeny, and Ermesinda, married before 1029 to Raymond III, count of Pallars-Jussà. Tetberga died between 7 April and 3 November 1005, when Armengol's second wife is first mentioned. As his second wife, Armengol married Guisla (Gisela), whose family is not known, but who could be the daughter with that name of Gausfred I de Roussillon, named in her father's will in February 989. She survived him and was still alive on 18 November 1010."3 Armengol I 'el de Córdoba' (?) Conde de Urgel was also known as Ermengaud I Count of Urgel.

"Arnaldo, Ermengaudo prolem Borrellum comes…" subscribed a charter dated 26 Sep 989 under which "Borrello…comes atque marchio" sold property to Sant Cugat del Vallés[2048]. He succeeded his father in 992 as Comte de Urgell. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 appoints "filio meo Ermengaudo comite" to "comitatu Orgullense"[2049]. The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes records that "Ermengaudus comes Irgeldensis" was killed in battle against the Muslims and that his head was taken away by the victors[2050]. "Ermengaudus…comes et marchio" donated revenue from Andorra to the monastery of San Cerni by charter dated 13 Jun 1007[2051]. The testament of “Ermengaudus...comes et marchio”, dated 28 Jul 1010, appointed “...Guillelmus vicecomes” among his executors, and made bequests to religious houses[2052]. The Chronicon alterum Rivipullense records the death in 1010 of “Ermengaudus comes Urgelli”[2053].
     "m (before 11 Jun 1001) GERIBERGA, daughter of --- (-[before 1017]). Armengol and his wife "Geriberga" sold property to a vassal by charter dated 11 Jun 1101[2054]. Her origin is not known.

The date of her death is not known. However, the charter dated 22 Apr 1037 (quoted below) suggests that Ramon Borrell Comte de Barcelona (who died in 1017) acted as comte d´Urgell at some stage during the minority of her son Comte Armengoll [II]. If that is correct, it is likely that Geriberga died before 1017. "

Reference: García Sánchez II (Basque: Gartzea II.a Santxez; dead c. 1000), was King of Pamplona and Count of Aragon from 994 until his death c. 1000. He was the eldest son of Sancho II of Pamplona and Urraca Fernández and the second Pamplonese monarch to also hold the title of count of Aragon. Modern historians refer to him as the Tremulous, though this appellation likely originally applied to his grandfather, García Sánchez I of Pamplona.[1]
Throughout his reign, his foreign policy seems to have been closely linked to that of Castile. His mother was an aunt of count Sancho García of Castile, and also of the powerful count of Saldaña, García Gómez of Carrión, and she appears to have played a role in forming a bridge between the kingdom and county.
He joined his cousin Sancho in attempting to break from the submission his father had offered to Córdoba, as a result of which he had to face Almanzor. In 996 he was forced to seek peace in Córdoba. In 997 during an expedition into the land of Calatayud, García killed the governor's brother. Almanzor took revenge by beheading 50 Christians. At theBattle of Cervera in July 1000, he joined, along with count García Gómez of Saldaña, in a coalition headed by countSancho García of Castile that was defeated by Almanzor (that count Sancho led the group is thought to reflect García's decline). Tradition names him one of the Christian leaders at the 1002 Battle of Calatañazor, which resulted in the death of Almanzor and the consequent crisis in the Caliphate of Córdoba, but there is no contemporary record of him after 1000, while his cousin Sancho Ramírez of Viguera may have been ruling in Pamplona in 1002. García was certainly dead by 1004, when his son Sancho Garcés III first appears as king.
Domestically, he granted the rule in Aragon to his brother Gonzalo, under the tutelage of his mother Urraca.[2] A tradition reports that he freed all of the Muslim captives being held in the kingdom.
García Sánchez II was married to Jimena Fernández, daughter of Fernando Bermúdez, Count of Cea and a distinguished member of the highest ranks of the nobility of the Kingdom of León. They had the following children:[3]
"     Sancho Garcés III, King of Navarre and Count of Aragon from 1004 until his death in 1035.
"     Elvira Garcés, nun in the Monastery of Leyre.
"     García Garcés
