About Teresa Núñez de Lara, reina consorte León

don NUÑO Pérez de Lara, son of don PEDRO González de Lara & his wife doña Eva --- (-killed Cuenca 3 Aug 1177, bur Perales, Cistercian Abbey). “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[1061]. Alférez of Alfonso VII King of Castile Mar 1145 to 4 Feb 1155. "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 "…Nunnus Petriz tenens Montor…"[1062]. Conde 11 Mar 1162. The Annales Compostellani record the capture in 1177 of Cuenca and the death there “III Non Aug” of “Comes Nunius”[1063]. The Anales Toledanos record the death in Jun 1177 of “el Conde D. Nuño”[1064].

m (before 1147) as her first husband, doña TERESA Fernández de Traba, daughter of don FERNANDO de Traba Conde de Trastámara [& his wife doña Sancha González] ([1130/35]-León 7 Feb 1180, bur León, monastery of San Isidoro). According to Barton[1065], doña Teresa was don Fernando's illegitimate daughter by his mistress Queen Teresa of Portugal. This appears to be based only on the early 17th century work by Prudencio de Sandoval which records a donation dated 1131 by “la condesa Loba” to the monastery of San Martín de Joyba which names “comes Fredenandus Petri filius comitis Petri…cum filia mea nata regina dona Tereyxa”[1066]. As noted below, it is likely that Queen Teresa was beyond child-bearing age when she started her relationship with Fernando Pérez de Traba. Another difficulty is the fact that Teresa gave birth to her children by King Fernando in [1178/80]. It is unlikely therefore that she was born earlier than [1130/35]. Queen Teresa, however, died in 1130, by which time she would definitely have been beyond child-bearing age. If this estimated birth date of Teresa is correct, it is likely that she was one of Fernando´s youngest children. Teresa became the mistress of don Fernando II King of León in [1178] and married him as his second wife in Aug 1179.
