About Cde. Pedro González

Pedro González de Lara (muerto en Bayona, 16 de octubre de 1130) fue un magnate castellano. Sirvió a Alfonso VI de joven y más tarde se convirtió en amante de su heredera, la reina Urraca. Puede que se uniera a la Primera Cruzada siguiendo a Raimundo IV de Tolosa, ganándose el apodo de «El Romero» («el errante, el peregrino»). En el apogeo de su influencia fue la persona más poderosa en el reino después del monarca. La preponderancia de su poder en Castilla está atestiguada en numerosos documentos entre 1120 y 1127. Se opuso a la sucesión del heredero legítimo de Urraca, Alfonso VII. Este conflicto terminó con su muerte prematura.

Fue en la generación de Pedro que se comenzó a utilizar en los reinos ibéricos el uso de toponímicos en vez de solamente el patronímico y Pedro fue el primer miembro de su linaje que añadió a su patronímico el «de Lara», una costumbre continuada por sus descendientes. Un buen ejemplo del estilo de Pedro se encuentra en una carta real de 1 de febrero de 1124: uenerabilis comes dominus Petrus de Lara, «el venerable conde don Pedro de Lara».

don PEDRO González, son of don GONZALO Núñez & his wife doña Goto [N%C3%BA%C3%B1ez] ([1080/85]-killed Bayonne 16 Oct 1130). “Pedro González” was Alférez of Alfonso VI King of Castile [1089 to 1091], and 30 Sep 1107 to 10 Sep 1109[1006], although it is assumed that the former citations refer to a different person assuming that Pedro's birth date is correctly estimated as shown here. Named armiger regis by the king in 1098 and 1108[1007]. Tenente of Lara from 1107 to 1129, of Peñafiel in 1113. Conde 1110. "Urraca…tocius Ispanie regina" confirmed rights of the monastery of San Millán de la Cogolla by charter dated Aug 1110, confirmed by "…Petrus Gonzalvez comes de Metina…"[1008]. "P[etrus] Gallecie comes…cum fratre meo obtimate R necnon sororibus meis…sanctimonialis Munina atque Visclavara" donated "monasterium Sancti Martini de Juvia" to Cluny by charter 14 Dec 1113 confirmed by "Froyla Vimaraci, Menendo Vimaraic, Menendo Solinizi, Comes Gugues, Comes Munio Pelagis, comes Rudericus Veilazi"[1009]. "Urracha…Ispanie regina, regis Aldefonsi regineque Constantie filia" donated property to the abbey of Silos by charter dated 26 Mar 1119, confirmed by "…Petrus Gonsalvi comes, Rodericus Gonsalvi…"[1010]. "Petrus Larensis comes" donated property to the abbey of Silos, with the advice of "domine mee Urrache regine", by charter dated 2 Sep 1125, confirmed by "Rodericus comes frater comitis Petri, Fernandus Garciez maior, Fernandus Garciez minor, Garcia Enneget nepos comitis Petri…Petro Lopet de Montfort, Petro Gonçalvet de Munio…"[1011]. After the death of Queen Urraca in 1126, he allied himself with Alfonso I King of Aragon. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris names "the Castilians Count Pedro de Lara and his brother Count Rodrigo González" as leaders of the opponents of Alfonso VII King of Castile on his accession in 1126[1012]. He reluctantly submitted to the authority of Alfonso VII King of Castile, but was later banished. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that Alfonso VII King of Castile captured "Count Pedro de Lara and his son-in-law Count Bertran" at Palencia and imprisoned them at León until they surrendered all their castles[1013]. The same source records that Pedro left for Bayonne to join the king of Aragon, where he challenged Alphonse Jourdain Comte de Toulouse to a duel, broke his arm after falling from his horse, and died a few days later[1014].

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].

Mistress (1): [1112/14] doña URRACA Queen of Castile and León, daughter of don ALFONSO VI King of Castile and León & his third wife Berta de Bourgogne-Comté (late 1080[1020]-Saldaña 8 Mar 1126, bur León, Monastery of San Isidoro). The Crónica Latina records that the queen accepted “la excesiva familiaridad del conde Pedro de Lara, padre del conde Malrico, del conde Nuño y del conde Álvaro” and that it was said that they had “un hijo llamado Fernando Hurtado”[1021]. Szabolcs de Vajay states that there is no evidence for a secret marriage between Queen Urraca and don Pedro González de Lara[1022].

Pedro & his wife had seven children:

1. don MANRIQUE [Almerico] Pérez de Lara

2. don ÁLVARO Pérez de Lara (-15 Sep 1172). “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[1050]. Conde 19 Nov 1166[1051].

Señor de Escarrona, Cueto, Mendivíl y Martioda. The Chronicon Lusitanum names “…Fernandum Furtado fratrem Imperatoris…” among those in the army of “Imperator D.
