About Eva Pérez de Traba

m ([late 1108/1109]) as her second husband, doña EVA, widow of conde don GARCÍA Ordóñez, daughter of --- (-after 1147). According to Salazar y Castro[1015], she was doña Eva Pérez de Traba, daughter of don Pedro Froílaz de Traba & his first wife doña Urraca Fróilaz. Barton[1016] says there is no documentary proof to substantiate this claim. Menéndez Pidal de Navascués[1017] suggests that she was a countess of French origin, Szabolcs de Vajay and Salazar[1018] 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 doña Eva was the daughter of don Pedro Froílaz because her son by her first husband married one of don 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[1019].
