ERMESINDE de Narbonne, daughter of AIMERY [II] Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife Ermesinde --- (-7 Jan 1177, bur Santa María de Huerta). “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1029]. “Armesen comitissa, uxor comitis Almarrich et filia Aimerich de Narbonna” donated property “Arandilla” to the monastery of Huerta by charter dated 14 Mar 1167[1030]. Manrique & his wife had [seven] children:

a) don MANRIQUE Manrique (-1178). “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1031]. Vicomte de Narbonne. “Almaricus dux Narbone…fratrem suum comitem Petrum” donated property “la mitad de las salinas de Terceguela” to the monastery of Huerta by charter dated 17 May 1172[1032].

b) don PEDRO Manríque de Lara (-Jan 1202, bur Santa María de Huerta). “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1033]. Conde before 1164. Señor de Molina y Mesa. “Almaricus dux Narbone…fratrem suum comitem Petrum” donated property “la mitad de las salinas de Terceguela” to the monastery of Huerta by charter dated 17 May 1172[1034]. Mayordomo mayor of Fernando II King of Leon 11 Feb 1185. The Anales Toledanos record the death in Jan 1202 of “el Conde D. Pedro”[1035]. 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 doña Urraca Alfonso “la Asturiana” de Castilla (1148-1176). m secondly MARGUERITE [consanguinea of HENRY II King of England[1036]] (-after 17 Nov 1189). m thirdly (after 1195) as her second husband, doña MAFALDA, widow of don PEDRO Ruiz de Guzmán, daughter of ---. Pedro & his first wife had [three] children:

i) don GARCÍA Pérez (-after 3 Mar 1183).

ii) [doña ELVIRA Pérez (-1220). “Comitissa Gelovira Petri…cum viro meo domno Armengaudo” donated property to León cathedral by charter dated 1182[1037]. Her parentage is also suggested by the charter dated 1228 under which her daughter Aurembiax granted property to “Nuño Pérez fijo del conde don Pedro, mio cormano”[1038]. 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 Chapter 25.B below)[1039]. 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”[1040]. 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. 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 Urgel, son of ARMENGOL [VII] "él de Valencia" Conde de Urgel & his wife Dulce de Foix ([1158]-1209). He succeeded his father in 1184 as Conde de Urgel. m secondly don GUILLEM de Cervera, son of --- (-after 1228).]

iii) don MANRIQUE Pérez (-Feb 1239). He succeeded as Vicomte de Narbonne.

- VICOMTES DE NARBONNE.

Pedro & his third wife had [three] children:

iv) don GONZALO Pérez de Lara . 3rd Señor de Molina y Mesa. m doña SANCHA Gómez de Traba, daughter of don GÓMEZ Gónzalez de Traba & his [first/second] wife ---. Gonzalo & his wife had one child:

(a) doña MAFALDA González de Lara (-[before Sep 1244]). Señora de Molina y Mesa. m (1240) as his first wife, Infante don ALFONSO de León Señor de Soria, son of don ALFONSO IX King of León & his second wife Infanta doña Berenguela de Castilla (Autumn 1202-Salamanca 6 Jan 1272, bur Ciudad Real, castle of Calatrava-la-Nueva). Señor de Molina y Mesa in 1240, by right of his wife.

v) don RODRIGO Pérez . His brother Aimery Vicomte de Narbonne granted him Montpesat and Lac, in Narbonne, in 1208[1041].

vi) [don NUÑO Pérez (-after 1228). 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”[1042]. 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.]

c) don GUILLERMO Manrique de Lara (-after 14 Aug 1164). “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1043].

d) doña MARÍA Manrique . “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1044]. The mid-14th Century Nobiliario of don Pedro de Portugal Conde de Barcelós records that “Diego Lopez el bueno” married “doña Maria Manriquez, hija del conde don Manrique de Lara”, adding that she left him “con un herrero de Burgos”[1045]. m (befote 1190, divorced 1192) as his first wife, don DIEGO López "el Bueno", Conde de Haro Señor Soberano de Vizcaya, son of don LOPE Díaz Conde de Haro, Señor Soberano de Vizcaya & his second wife doña Aldonza Rodríguez (-Burgos 16 Sep 1214).

e) [[1046]doña MAYOR [Amilia] Manrique (-after 27 May 1182). Barton suggests that the wife of Gómez González was doña Mayor [Amilia] Manrique, daughter of conde don Manrique Pérez & his wife Ermesinde Ctss de Narbonne, who confirmed a grant of property by her supposed sister doña María Manrique to the see of Burgos 27 May 1182[1047]. However, it is likely that this refers to the same person as Gómez´s wife named Milia. Barton´s source has not yet been consulted directly, but it is possible that it does not explicitly refer to the relationship between the grantor and Mayor. The absence of a daughter named Mayor from the charter of her supposed mother dated 14 Aug 1164 also suggests that this affiliation may not be correct. m don GÓMEZ González de Manzanedo, son of conde don GONZALO Rodríguez de Bureba & his first wife [doña Estefanía López] (-12 Oct 1182).]

f) doña SANCHA Manrique (-after 14 Aug 1164). “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1048].

g) doña ERMENGARDA Manrique . “Ermessenda comitissa…quondam uxor Almarrici comitis…cum filiis meis…domno Amelrico et domno Petro atque Guillelmo et domna Maria et domna Sancia et domna Ermengard” donated property to Burgos cathedral by charter dated 14 Aug 1164[1049]. Vicomtesse de Narbonne.
