About Ordoño III, rey de León

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ordo%C3%B1o_III_de_Le%C3%B3n

Ordoño III de León (?, c. 925 - Zamora, 956) fue rey de León desde 951 hasta su muerte. Hijo y sucesor de Ramiro II (931-951) e Adosinda Gutiérrez, se enfrentó a navarros y castellanos, que apoyaban a su hermanastro Sancho en su disputa por el trono. Éste estaba apoyado por el reino de Navarra y el conde castellano Fernán González. Sancho finalmente perdió en su disputa por el poder en 953, teniendo como segunda consecuencia el sometimiento del conde castellano a Ordoño.

Éste no fue el único problema que Ordoño III tuvo durante su reinado, pues además soportó numerosas rebeldías internas, ataques de al-Ándalus y una sublevación en Galicia. En respuesta a los musulmanes, Ordoño envió gran número de tropas, que consiguieron llegar hasta Lisboa (955). Ante semejante demostración de fuerza, se firmó un tratado de paz entre el rey y el califa Abd al-Rahman III (912-961).

Ordoño III llevó a cabo una exhaustiva reorganización de sus territorios y continuó con el proceso de fortalecimiento de las instituciones reales que inició su padre.

Matrimonio y descendencia

Casó con Urraca, hija de Fernán González, conde de Castilla. Descendencia con Urraca Fernández:

   * Bermudo, rey de León.
   * Gonzalo.

Ordoño III (c. 926–Zamora, 956) was the king of León from 951 to 956, son and successor of Ramiro II (931-951). He confronted Navarre and Castile, who supported his half-brother Sancho the Fat in disputing Ordoño's claim to the throne.

This was not the only problem of his reign, however, he had to deal with internal rebellion, attacks from the Muslims of al-Andalus, and the rebellion of Galicia. In response to the Muslims, Ordoño III sent troops as far as Lisbon (955). Before this great show of force, the Muslims had nothing to do but ask for peace. Negotiations ended with a treaty between the king of León and the caliph of Córdoba Abd al-Rahman III (912-961).

He tried to continue the actions of his father in fortifying the land and the royal authority in the face of the contumacious and secessional Count Fernán González. He even married Fernán's daughter Urraca and later repudiated her over her father's alliance with Sancho.

Urraca bore him at least two children: a son named Ordoño who died young and a daughter named Theresa who became a nun. Ordoño III was also father of Bermudo II, but opinion is divided as to whether he was son of Urraca, or of a mistress, one of the daughters of Count Pelayo Gonzalez.

7º REI DE LEÃO, Espanha
Ordonho III de Leão (925 - Zamora, Agosto de 956), foi rei de Leão desde 951 até à sua morte. Filho de Ramiro II de Leão, sucedeu-lhe no trono após a sua morte; o seu reinado pautou-se pelas constantes revoltas dos condes castelhanos (mormente Fernão Gonzalez), os quais, em conjunto com o seu meio-irmão Sancho procuraram destroná-lo, bem como pela insubmissão dos nobres galegos e ainda os ataques dos muçulmanos.

Para fazer face a estes problemas, organizou uma grandiosa expedição que logrou alcançar Lisboa, mas que não chegou a tomar, tendo estabelecido uma trégua com o califa de Córdova Abd al-Rahman III. Pouco depois, quando regressava a Leão, faleceu prematuramente em Zamora, deixando o trono ao seu meio-irmão, Sancho I.

Foi filho de Ramiro II, rei de Leão (900 - 965) e de Ausenda Guterres de Coimbra. Casou por duas vezes, a primeira em 950 com Urraca Fernandes de Castela (930 - 1007) e a segundo com Munia Sanchez de Pamplona (920 - ?). Não teve filhos deste dois casamentos.
