About Letgarda, comtessa consort de Barcelona

LEDGARDE ([950/53]-after 16 Apr 980). Comte Borrell donated property to the monastery of San Saturnino de Urgell, for the souls of "…uxoris meæ Letgarda vel prolis meæ, que de me et illa procreata est, et…fratris mei Mironis comitis atque marchionis", by charter dated 6 Jun 969[285].

Her birth date is estimated on the assumption that she was 15 years or younger at the time of her marriage, but old enough to have given birth to her first child before the date of this charter.

Bofarull records a suggestion by Baluze that Ledgarde was the daughter of "Ramon Pons y Garsinda condes de Auvernia"[286]. The original work in which this suggestion is made has not yet been consulted. However, without knowing the basis on which the connection with the family of the Comtes de Toulouse is made, it is chronological impossible for Ledgarde to have been the daughter of Raymond Pons Comte de Toulouse et d´Auvergne whose children must have been born in the range [920/30]. If Ledgarde did belong to the Toulouse family, she must have been the daughter of Raymond III Comte de Toulouse, whose children would have been born in the range [940/60].

"Borrellus…chomes et marchio" sold property to "Unicfredo que vocant Amado" by charter dated 11 Jun 977, subscribed by "Ledgardis comitissa, Ansulfo, Vuitardus vicescomes…"[287]. "Borrellus comes et marchio et uxori mee Ledegards" donated property "in comitatu Ausona" to Vic by charter dated 16 Apr 980[288].
