About Constança de Besalú, comtessa consort d'Urgell

Ermengol II, Count of Urgell From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Ermengol II or Armengol II (died 1038), called the Pilgrim, was the Count of Urgell from 1011 to his death. He was the son of Ermengol I. He was a child when he succeeded his father and was put under the regency of his uncle Raymond Borrel of Barcelona until 1018. With his uncle's help, Armengol began a successful war of reconquest to the south, taking Montmagastre, Alòs, Malagastre, Rubió, and Artesa. Around 1015, the bishop of Urgell, Armengol, repopulated the region of Guissona. Finally, Arnau Mir de Tost occupied the castle of Àger in 1034. The taifa kings of Lleida and Zaragoza also granted lands to him and to the church of Urgel. Ermengol went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and died in 1038 at Jerusalem. He married before November 24, 1031, Constança, also called Velasquita. She survived until 1059 at least and acted as regent for her son Ermengol III. She may have been the homonymous daughter of Count Bernard I of Besalu and Countess Tota-Adelaide, named in her father's will in October 1021.
