ARMENGOL [I] de Barcelona, "él de Córdoba", son of BORRELL [II] Comte de Barcelona & his first wife Ledgarda [de Toulouse] ([973/77]-Córdoba 1 Sep 1010, bur Ripoll). “Borellus…comes et marchio…filios meos Raymundo et Ermengode” ordered the security of “castro…Cardona”, constructed by “avus meus Wifredus comes et marchio”, by charter dated 9 Apr 986, subscribed by “Geribertus vicecomes…Gocefridus frater Borelli comes”[2080]. "Arnaldo, Ermengaudo prolem Borrellum comes…" subscribed a charter dated 26 Sep 989 under which "Borrello…comes atque marchio" sold property to Sant Cugat del Vallés[2081]. He succeeded his father in 992 as Comte de Urgell. The testament of "Borellus comes" dated 24 Sep 993 appoints "filio meo Ermengaudo comite" to "comitatu Orgullense"[2082]. The Chronicle of Adémar de Chabannes records that "Ermengaudus comes Irgeldensis" was killed in battle against the Muslims and that his head was taken away by the victors[2083]. "Ermengaudus…comes et marchio" donated revenue from Andorra to the monastery of San Cerni by charter dated 13 Jun 1007[2084]. The testament of “Ermengaudus...comes et marchio”, dated 28 Jul 1010, appointed “...Guillelmus vicecomes” among his executors, and made bequests to religious houses[2085]. The Chronicon alterum Rivipullense records the death in 1010 of “Ermengaudus comes Urgelli”[2086].

m (before 11 Jun 1001) GERIBERGA, daughter of --- (-[before 1017]). Armengol and his wife "Geriberga" sold property to a vassal by charter dated 11 Jun 1101[2087]. Her origin is not known. She is shown in Europäische Stammtafeln[2088] as Tetberga, (presumably on the basis that "Geriberga" is a mistranscription in the document cited above) [daughter of Rotbold [II] Comte de Provence & his wife Eimilde de Gevaudan], but the basis for this speculative parentage is not known. The date of her death is not known. However, the charter dated 22 Apr 1037 (quoted below) suggests that Ramon Borrell Comte de Barcelona (who died in 1017) acted as comte d´Urgell at some stage during the minority of her son Comte Armengoll [II]. If that is correct, it is likely that Geriberga died before 1017.

Armengol [I] & his wife had [three] children: 


Comte d'Urgell (992-1010).

Fill segon del comte Borrell II de Barcelona, Girona, Osona i Urgell, el qual succeí en aquest darrer comtat. Benvist i considerat a Roma, on anà dues vegades (el 998 i el 1001), mantingué així mateix excel·lents relacions amb l'església local, especialment amb el bisbe Sal·la, amb qui negocià la promoció del nebot, l'ardiaca Ermengol, a la seu urgel·litana. Lluità, en la part meridional del comtat, contra els sarraïns de Lleida i caigué presoner en l'acció d'Albesa (1004). El 1010 acompanyà el seu germà Ramon Borrell de Barcelona en la famosa expedició a Còrdova i fou un dels prohoms catalans que sucumbiren en la batalla victoriosa d'Aqabat al-Baqar.


Ermengol I of Urgell

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Ermengol I or Armengol I (974 – 1010), called el de Córdoba, was the Count of Urgell from 992 to his death. He was the second son of Borrell II of Barcelona and his first wife, Letgarda, granddaughter of Raymond Pons of Toulouse. He was the second of the counts of Urgel and famous mainly for his participation in the Reconquista.

A man of culture, Ermengol was open to influences from wider Europe and he made two voyages to Rome, in 998 and 1001. He was a stimulus to his nobles in making pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela or Le Puy. He also reformed the judiciary of his county to make justice more available to all.[1] He also began to reassert his authority over the outlying castles of his realm, whose lords were acting independent of his power.[2]

He also maintained an intense war against the Caliphate of Córdoba. In 1003, Urgell was invaded by Abd al-Malik al-Muzaffar. Aided by Raymond Borrel of Barcelona, Bernard I of Besalú, and Wifred II of Cerdagne, Ermengol beat them back at the Battle of Torà.[3] In 1004, he was imprisoned in Albesa after fighting against Lleida. In 1008, he led several successful expeditions against the Moors.[4] In 1010, he participated in the expedition of his brother Raymond Borrel of Barcelona against Córdoba itself. He died nearby at Castell de Bacar, thirty seven years of age .

[edit]Family

Before 10 July 1000, Ermengol married Tetberga, presumably a daughter of Artaud I, Count of Forez, by his wife Tetberga of Limoges. Tetberga died between 7 April and 3 November 1005, when Ermengol's second wife is first mentioned. As his second wife, Ermengol married Guisla (Gisela), whose family is not known, but who could be the homonymous daughter of Gausfred I of Roussillon, named in her father's will in February 989. She survived him and was still alive on 18 November 1010. From this second union came two children:

Ermengol II, his successor

Ermesinda, married before 1029 Raymond III, Count of Pallars-Jussà
