About García I, rey de Asturias y León

https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garc%C3%ADa_I_de_Le%C3%B3n

-----------------------------------------

García I (c. 871–914) was the king of León from 910 until his death and eldest of three succeeding sons of Alfonso III the Great by his wife Amulina (later called Jimena).

García took part in the government alongside his father until 909. In that year was discovered a conspiracy which implicated García. Alfonso renounced the throne and divided the realm between his three sons. León went to García, Galicia to Ordoño, and Asturias to Fruela. Asturian primacy was nevertheless recognised.

García's reign saw the fortification of the Duero and the repopulation of Roa, Osma, Clunia, and San Esteban de Gormaz. During this period, the count of Castile gained influence through these endeavours.

At his death in Zamora he had no heirs and his kingdom passed to Ordoño.
