  • i) [MAYOR Rodríguez . The primary source which confirms the parentage of Mayor Rodríguez has not been identified. Torres names “la condesa Mayor Rodríguez, mujer de Fernando Núñez” as daughter of Rodrigo Muñoz but does not cite the primary source on which this information is based[855]. The difficulty appears chronological: Fronilde Fernández, daughter of Mayor Rodríguez, is named 10 Feb 1187, which would suggest a long life if her mother had been born in or before 1086 (when Rodrigo Muñoz was killed). The primary source which confirms that her husband was “conde” has not been identified. Barton names Fronilde Fernández as daughter of Fernando Núñez and Mayor Rodríguez, but does not give the parentage of Mayor Rodríguez[856]. m FERNANDO Núñez, son of NUÑO Menéndez & his wife Sancha Viegas.]
