About Ava, comtessa consort de Cerdanya

Countess of Cerdanya and Besalú, wife of Miró II of Cerdanya, mother of Sunifred II of Cerdanya-Besalú, Guifré II of Besalú, Oliba I of Cerdanya-Besalú and Miró III of Besalú, bishop of Girona, and grandmother of Oliba, abbot of Ripoll and bishop of Vic. On her husband's death (927) she governed the counties as guardian of her sons, still minors. By 941 mother and sons were already ruling together, and the following year Sunifred ruled alone. Her acts took the form of many donations made to several religious centres: Cuixà (941, 953, 962), Ripoll, Elna (962) and Camprodon (944).
