Gontrada Peres (?) de Asturias lived at an unknown place ; Per Wikipedia:
     "Gontrodo Pérez (c.?1105 – 26 June 1186), called Gontrodo Petri in contemporary charters, was the mistress of King Alfonso VII of León with whom she had Urraca la Asturiana, queen consort of Pamplona by her marriage to King García Ramírez.
Family relations
     "She was the daughter of the Asturian magnate Pedro Díaz de Valle and María Ordóñez.[1] Gontrodo's paternal grandparents were Diego Gutiérrez and Gotina Pérez,[2]and the maternal ones Ordoño Álvarez — alférez and descendant of Infante Ordoño Ramírez — and Gontrodo "Sol" Rodríguez.[3] Her father, Pedro Díaz de Valle, was tenente of the Towers of León and of the valley of Mansilla[2] Accordingly, her parents were not, as asserted by several historians, at an unknown age simply members of the local nobility of Asturias.[5] She had several siblings, including Diego Pérez Obregón[2] the ancestor of the lineage Álvarez de las Asturias[2] whose members include Cardenal Ordoño Álvarez and Rodrigo Álvarez de las Asturias[6] from whom King Henry II of Castile inherited the lordship of Noreña.
Descendants
     "Gontrodo was married to Gutierre Sebastiániz potestas or tenente of Aguilar,[7] a fortress near the city of Oviedo. Gutierre appears for the last time in 1137 in a charter from the Monastery of San Salvador in Celorio.[b] Three children were born of this marriage:[7]
** Sebastián Gutiérrez
** Diego Gutiérrez
** Aldonza Gutiérrez

     "While still married, Gontrodo had an affair and became the concubine of King Alfonso VII. This relationship began in 1132 when the king was in Asturias trying to quash one of the many uprisings of Count Gonzalo Peláez.[9] In 1133, a daughter was born, Urraca,[9] who became the wife of King García Ramírez.[10]

     "On 13 October 1153, Gontrodo founded the Monastery of Santa María de la Vega in Oviedo.[11] Her daughter, the widowed queen Urraca, who was already back in Asturias, confirmed the monastery's foundational charter which was also confirmed by King Alfonso VII.[12] All the properties that she gave the monastery were hers, either given to her by the king or inherited from her parents.[13] Pursuant to her wishes, the monastery was first ruled by the Order of Fontevrault which was not very common in medieval Spain.[14] By 1283, the monastery had adopted the Rule of Saint Benedict.[15]
     "Gontrodo became a nun in this monastery[16] where she lived the rest of her life until her death on 26 June 1186. She was buried in a sarcophagus engraved with birds and dogs, stems and leaves. [17] The monastery was abandoned on 31 July 1854 and the few nuns that were living there moved to the Monastery of Saint Pelagius in Oviedo, taking with them the sarcophagus of Gontrodo.[18] The tombstone covering the sarcophagus is exhibited at the Archaeological Museum of Asturias.
Gontrodo in some medieval charters
** On 11 March 1143, Gontrodo Petri donated Ambás and half of her inheritance in Tedaga on the condition that these properties could not be sold or lent. Charter confirmed by: (1st column) Diego, Ordoño, Gonzalo, and Rodrigo Pérez (her brothers); (2nd column) Sebastián Gutiérrez, Diego Gutiérrez, Urraca, and Aldonza Gutiérrez (her children).[19]
** On 17 April 1147, she donated Entrático, which had been given to her by King Alfonso VII. Charter confirmed by: (1st column) Sebastián, Diego, and Aldonza Gutiérrez; (2nd column) regina Urraca Adefonsi.[20]
** On 13 October 1153, accompanied by her daughter Urraca, founded the Monastery of Santa María de la Vega which was to be ruled by the congregation of Fontevrault.[21]
     "According to professor Margarita Torres Sevilla-Quiñones de León, "...such primacy of these unknown Gutiérrez (Sebastián, Diego, and Aldonza) over their uncle Suero Ordóñez and her brothers (...) is not possible unless they are the children of Gontrodo Pérez".[7]
Notes
a. Among these historians, Margarita Torres Sevilla-Quiñones de León, mentions Francisco Javier Fernández Conde, Vicente Álvarez Palenzuela and Antonio Floriano Cumbreño.[4]
b. On 11 March 1133, Alfonso VII gave Guterio Sebastian the villa of Entratgo, in Cangas de Onís, next to the Buenna River.[8]

     "GARCÍA Ramírez Infante de Navarra, son of RAMIRO Sánchez de Navarra Señor de Monzón & his wife Elvira [Cristina] Rodríguez ([1105]-Lorca, Navarra 25 Nov 1150, bur Pamplona, Cathedral Santa María). The "Corónicas" Navarras name "al rey don García de Navarra, que dixieron Garçía Remíriz" as the son of "l'ifant don Romiro" and his wife[560]. The Crónica Latina names “el rey de Navarra [García] Ramírez, hijo del infante Ramiro, que fue hijo del infante Sancho de cierta dueña, hijo del rey García” and adds that it was said that he was the vassal of king of Castile alter he suceded to the throne[561]. The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña records that "el infant Don Garcia fillo de Don Ramiro, fillo de Don Sancho, rey de Nauarra que fué, el que mató su hermano Remon" (which confuses García Ramírez's paternal grandfather with the latter's legitimate half-brother) was proposed as king of Navarre in particular by "Don Sancho de la Rosa, vispo de Pamplona, et de Ladron fillo de Ennego Veliz, et de Guillem Aznariz Doteiça, et de Exemen Aznarez de Torres…et Don Ffernan Enneguer Delet"[562]. He succeeded his father in 1116 as Señor de Monzón y Logroño. On the death of Alfonso I "el Batallador" King of Aragon and Navarre in 1134, the late king's brother Ramiro succeeded as king of Aragon. However, Navarre succeeded in separating from Aragon under the leadership of García, who succeeded as GARCÍA VI "el Restaurador" King of Navarre. The succession and division of territories was confirmed under the Pact of Vadoluongo in Jan 1135[563]. The "Corónicas" Navarras record that "el rey don Garcia de Navarra" died "viespra de santa Çecilia" after ruling 15 years, in 1178, another manuscript in the series recording the death "VI Kal Dec…apud Loricam" of "Garssias rex Pampilonensis"[564].
     "m firstly (after 1130) MARGUERITE de Laigle, daughter of GILBERT Seigneur de Laigle & his wife Juliane du Perche (-25 May 1141). "Garsias Ranimiriz" confirmed the rights and privileges of the church of Pamplona on the advice of "uxoris mee Margarite regina" by charter dated 1135[565]. The primary source which confirms her parentage has not yet been identified. A charter of Leire monastery dated May 1141 states that “in mense maio in ipso anno…regina Margarita” died[566].
     "m secondly (León 24 Jun 1144) as her first husband, URRACA Alfonso de Castilla “la Asturiana”, illegitimate daughter of ALFONSO VII King of Castile & his mistress Gontroda Pérez (1132-Palencia 26 Oct 1164, bur Palencia, Cathedral San Antolín). The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris names "Urraca" as the daughter of King Alfonso VII and his "concubine…Guntroda", recording that she was brought up by the king's sister Infanta Sancha[567]. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records the marriage of King García and "his [=King Alfonso VII] daughter Infanta Urraca whom he had fathered by Guntroda, the daughter of Pedro Asturiano" on 24 Jun 1144 in León[568]. "Garsias…Pampilonensium rex…cum uxore mea Urraka regina" donated property to the church of Santa María de las Dueñas by charter dated to [1144/50][569]. “Gontrodo Petri...cum domina mea, et filia Urraca” donated property to the monastery of Santa María de Vega near Oviedo by charter dated 13 Oct 1153[570]. The primary source which confirms her second marriage has not yet been identified. She married secondly (before 1163) as his second wife, Álvaro Rodríguez de Castro."

     ; Barton and Ferris show different ancestries for Froila Diaz. Ferris shows his father to have been Diego Ansurez de Cifontes and his mother to have been Maria Pelayez de Cisneros. I have chosen to follow Barton's lineage.6,7 He was living in 1069.5 He was Mayordomo to Raymond of Burgundy, count of Galicia in 1094 at Galicia, Spain (now).2

; Count Diego López de Haro (1.093- 1.124). Is the first one to use the name of Haro. He married María Sánchez (not María Sánchez de Lemos or de Erro. Only María Sánchez. It was her only name.) She was Sancho Sanchez of Erro and Tafalla´s daughter. Sancho Sanchez was a count of a land of Navarra and there isn't any reason to call her "of Lemos" . Lemos is in Galicia. Her mother was Elvira García, count García Ordóñez´s daughter. Diego and María Sánchez were parents of Lope Díaz, Sancho Díaz, Fortún Díaz and Gil Díaz.4 Diego Lopez "el Blanco" de Haro Lord of Alava, Buradon, Granon, Haro, Najera and Vizcaya was also known as Count Diego Lopez Senor Soberano de Vizcaya.5 He was living in 1112; Diego Lopez de Haro lord of Alava, Buradon, Granon, Haro, Najera and Vizcaya was mentioned in 1112 in a charter of queen Urraca. He died in 1124. He had a sister, Tota Lopez, mentioned in 1121

his wife was Maria sanchez, of unknown family origin. She appeared in 1121 and 1140. By her, he had at least 2 sons, Lope Diaz and Sancho Diaz (ment. 1158.)2
