About Sunyer II, IX comte d'Empúries
Sunyer II was the count of Empúries from 862 and Roussillon from 896 until his death. He was the son of Sunyer I of Empúries.
He and his brother Dela obtained the county of Empúries in 862 after Humfrid, margrave of Gothia, rebelled. They governed it together until Dela's death. In 878, the council of Troyes deposed Bernat of Gothia, who had held Roussillon since 865. It was given to Miro the Elder and, in 896, when Miro died, it passed by heredity to Sunifred. Together with Dela, he tried to occupy Girona, but their cousin, Wilfred the Hairy, stopped them. In 888, he travelled to Orléans to do homage to King Odo of France. In 891, he prepared a naval expedition to attack Moorish Almería. The campaign, however, ended in a truce.
He married a woman named Ermengarda, with whom he had the following issue:
Bencion (d. 916), successor Gausbert (d. 931), successor of his brother Elmerat (d. 920), bishop of Elna Guadal (d. 947), bishop of Elna
Suniario I de Ampurias o Suniario I del Rosellón (en catalán Sunyer I d'Empúries o del Rosselló) (c. 810-848), conde de Ampurias y conde del Rosellón (834-848). Era quizás hijo de Bellón I de Carcasona1 o de otra familia goda de la región.2
Recibió la investidura de los dos condados de manos de Luis I de Francia, junto con Odalrico.
En la revuelta de Guillermo de Septimania en el año 848, hijo de Bernardo de Septimania, perdió el condado y, probablemente, la vida a favor del primero.
