About Galindo I Aznárez, conde de Aragón


< Wikipedia > Galindo Aznárez I (died 867) was Count of Aragón from 844 to 867.

Galindo Aznárez I (died 867) was Count of Aragón from 844 to 867, succeeding Galindo Garcés. He was the son of Aznar Galíndez I, who had been Count of Aragón from 809 to 820 and Count of Urgell, Cerdanya, and Conflent (820-??). Galindo Aznárez received these last three counties from his father sometime before 833, in 833 was designated count of Pallars and Ribagorza, but only governed them for a year. After a period of rule in Pamplona, he came back to Aragón in 844 to assume the Countship upon the heirless death of Galindo Garcés.

Galindo Aznárez and an unknown woman had a son, Aznar Galíndez II, his successor. He appears to have had at least one additional child: an 867 charter mentions a son-in-law, "king Sancho", whom several scholars have identified with the younger son of García Íñiguez of Pamplona, Sancho Garcés, father of Aznar Sánchez of Larraun and grandfather of queen Toda of Pamplona.[1][2]


  • Count of Urgell (824–834); Count of Cerdanya (824–834). Preceded by Aznar Galíndez I, Succeeded by Sunifred I
  • Count of Aragon (844–867); Preceded by Galindo Garcés. Succeeded by Aznar Galíndez II

Galindo Aznárez was the son of Aznár Galindez I, who had been count of Aragón from 809 to 820, when a practical joke played by Galindo on his brother-in-law Garcia Galindez led the latter to enlist the support of Pamplona in usurping the county. Aznár Galindez was compensated by the French king Louis 'the Pious' with the counties of Urgel, Cerdanya, and Conflent. Galindo received these three counties from his father sometime before 833, in which year he usurped the counties of Pallars and Ribagorza. For this action he was dispossessed of Urgel and Cerdanya by Louis in 834, and was subsequently ejected from Pallars and Ribagorza by the counts of Toulouse. Upon the heirless death in 844 of Count Galindo Garcés, son of his father's rival, Galindo was allowed to assume the countship of Aragón in exchange for recognition of the suzerainty of Pamplona over the formerly-French county.

Galindo had one son, Aznár Galindez II, his successor, while in a charter from 867 he names his son-in-law Sancho Garcés, the younger son of Garcia I Iñiguez, king of Pamplona.

Galindo died in 867.

  • AZNAR Galíndez (-after [838]). No document has been found which indicates his parentage. It is possible that he was the son of Galindo García, shown above, on the basis of his patronymic. However, the name García is not common among the known descendants of Aznar Galíndez which suggests that his father may have been another Galindo. m ---. The name of Aznar Galindez's wife is not known. The early 12th century manuscript of the Codex de Roda states that "Aznarius Galindi" married “domnam Onnecam filiam Garsiez Enneconis filii Enneconis Ariste” and names their three oldest children as shown below[15], but the document evidently confuses this Aznar Galíndez with Conde Aznar Galíndez who died in 893 (see below). Conde Aznar Galindez & his wife had [five] children. …
    • b) GALINDO [I] Aznárez, son of AZNAR Galíndez Conde de Aragón & his wife --- (-[after 867]). The Codex de Roda names "Centolle Asnari et Galindo Asnari et domna Matrona" as the children of "Asnari Galindones"[31]. ["Dato Donati comite, Garsia vice comite, Galindo Azenarii" subscribed the charter dated Oct 833 under which "Azenario Sancius comes" instructed two priests to restore "la terre de Cazaux" to the abbey of Pessan[32]. From a chronological point of view, it is not certain that “Galindo Azenarii” could be the same person as the future Galindo Aznárez Conde de Aragón.] He succeeded as Conde de Aragón, Pallars, Ribagorza, with support from García I Iñíguez King of Pamplona, confirmed by the marriage of his son to the King's daughter. "Galindo…comes" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa by charter dated to [840/67], which states that he founded the monastery[33]. The dating clause of a charter for San Martín de Cillas dated 858 records "sub reimine Garssia Scemenonis rege in Pampilona et comite Galindo in Aragone"[34]. "Galindo Isinari comes" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa by charter dated to [before 867], witnessed by "Scemeno Scemenonis…Alaricus Isinari, Mancio Galindonis, Fortunio Galindonis, Isinari Salomonis, Isinari Dacconis, Galindo Isinari…"[35]. "Galindo Asinarii comes" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa by charter dated 867[36]. The dating clause of this charter states "regnante Karlo rege in Franza, Aldefoso filio Ardonis in Gallia Comata, Garsia Enneconis in Pampilona", which is consistent with this date. However, the text includes "ego Galindo Asinari comes deprecor Sancium regem generum meum…", which casts doubt on the authenticity of the document. The likely kings named Sancho to whom this could relate are the kings of Navarre, although none is known to have been the son-in-law of a count named Galindo Aznar. m ---.
