About Oria (Aurea)

FORTÚN García, son of GARCÍA I Iñíguez King of Pamplona & his first wife Urraca --- ([830]-after 905). The Codex de Roda names "Fortunio Garseanis et Sanzio Garseanis et domna Onneca" as the children of "Garsea Enneconis" and his unnamed wife[92]. He was captured by the Muslims in 860 and taken to Córdoba where he remained captive for twenty years[93]. "Rexo Garsia, filius Eneconis" donated property to the monastery of Leire, with the advice of "filii mei Fortunii", by charter dated 21 Oct 880[94]. He succeeded his father in 882 as FORTÚN [King] of Pamplona. “Rex Fortunio Garcianes” reviewed the territories of the monastery of San Julián de Labasal, at the request of “comite Galindo Asnar”, by charter dated 893, whose dating clause records “...Garcia Sanz in Gallias, Raimundus in Paliares, pagani...Mohomet Ebenlupu in Balleterra et Mohomet Atauel in Osca...”[95]. "Fertunius rex, proles regis Garsie" donated property to the monastery of Leire by charter dated 21 Mar 901[96]. The Libro de Regla of Leire Monastery, compiled in 1076, records that "Fortunius Garseanes" came "de Corduba", succeeded on the death of "Garsea Ennecones", but became "monachus in monasterio Legerensi", while "frater eius Sancius Garseanes cum uxore sua Dna Tota regina" ruled in his place[97]. This suggests that Fortún was deposed by Sancho. Sabaté Curull dates Fortún´s deposition to 905[98].

m ([845]) ORIA, daughter of ---. The Codex de Roda names "domna Oria filia de ---" as wife of "Furtunio Garseanis"[99].

Oria (Auria, Awriya), the wife of Fortún Garcés, is known only from the Códice de Roda, which names domna Oria filia de --- (lady Oria, daughter of ---) as the wife of Furtunio Garseanis (Fortún Garcés). This codex probably dates from the late 10th century with additions for the 11th century, so it is approximately 100 years or more after her lifetime.

There is no contemporary indication of her parentage, but there several theories about her possible ancestry:

  • According to the Andalusian historian Ibn Hazm (994-1064), she was married to "Garcia, King of the Basques, from which Musa ibn Garcia was borned"
  • Historian and professor Antonio Rei suggested she might have been a granddaughter of Musa ibn Musa ibn Qasi (Rei, 44–45). The Banu Qasi were a Christian family who converted to Islam.
  • Historian and genealogist Christian Settipani suggested she might have been a daughter of Oria bint Musa, daughter of Musa ibn Musa, and her husband García (killed 859). The latter would be a son of García Galíndez the Bad and his first wife Matrona, daughter of Aznar I Galíndez, count of Aragon (Settipani, 114)
  • Settipani also suggested she might have been a daughter of García Galíndez the Bad and another Aurea, his second wife, the daughter of Eneko Arista and sister García I of Navarre (Settipani, 114).
  • Settipani also suggested she might have been a daughter of Galindo I Aznárez, count of Aragon, and a granddaughter of Aznar I Galíndez and a third Aurea, who could be the daughter of the Duke Lupo II of Gascony and a sister of Oneca or Iniga, the mother of Eneko Arista and Musa ibn Musa (Settipani, 115).
  • Spanish Wikipedia (citing Rei) supports the theory she was daughter of Lubb ibn Musa ( Lope ibn Musa) and Ayab Al-Bilatiyya, and a granddaughter of Musa ibn Musa and Assona Iniguez but says in a footnote that her parentage is not documented.
  • In unsourced Internet genealogies she is most often called a daughter of Lope ibn Musa (banu Qasi).

She married [845] King Fortún Garcés of Pamplona, who died in 922. They were the parents of:

  1. Íñigo Fortúnez
  2. Aznar Fortúnez
  3. Velasco Fortúnez
  4. Lope Fortúnez
  5. Onneca Fortúnez, who married firstly Abdallah ibn Mohammed, Emir of Córdoba, and secondly her cousin Aznar Sánchez of Larraun, grandson of king García Íñiguez, becoming the mother of the future queens Toda Aznárez, wife of Sancho Garcés, and Sancha Aznárez, wife of king Jimena Garcés.
