; From Find A Grave:
     BIRTH     unknown, Spain
     DEATH     unknown, Spain
     Bermundo/Vermundo was the son of Ordono III, King of Leon and Aragonta Pelaez, and grandson of Ordono II, born about 956 and died in 999. Controversy over his true parentage continues.
     He was the husband of Velasquita Ramírez and father of Cristina, who married Ordoño Ramírez, son of his rival Ramiro III.
     Secondly, husband of Elvira Garcia, the daughter of the Castilian count García Fernández and father of:
* Alfonso V, King of Leon
* Theresa
* Sancha

     Bermundo also had three illegitimate children; Elvira, Pelayo and Ordono.
     He was King of Galicia 982 to 999 and King of Leon 984 to 999, with the nickname of "El Gotoso" translated to "The Gouty." Justo Pérez de Urbel's described his reign as "the poor king tormented in life by the sword of Almanzor and in death by the vengeful pen of a bishop." Between 991 and 992 he was expelled from the kingdom by three magnates, but restored soon thereafter. He finally expelled the Muslims from Zamora, triggering off reprisals that resulted the razing of Leon. In 999, the gout from which he suffered was aggravated and it became impossible for him to ride a horse. As a military leader of Christians of northwestern Spain, he traveled by litter.
     Bermundo died in Villanueva del Bierzo and was buried in the Monastery of Carracedo, then his remains were moved to the Cathedral of León (also known as the Basilica in Leon?). He is also listed as being buried at Pantheon of Kings of San Isidoro de León along with most of the kings and queens of the kingdom of Leon.

Per Todd Farmerie email [2005]:
     "Having several hours down-time in the middle of something, I decided to take a look at what Leo's site had for the various early Iberian families, and I noticed several problems. Perhaps going over them here rather than a private email may engender discussion outside of the English nobility rut the group has been in of late.
     "1. Ramiro Alfonso, (probably shouldn't be refered to as Ramiro I) unsuccessful competitor for the throne of Asturias, married Urraca and had a daughter Muniadona Ramirez. However, there is reason to believe that Urraca was widow of his brother King Fruela II, and as such could not have been mother of Muniadona, whose own son Fernan is thought to have been born before Fruela's death.
     "2.The wife of Hermengildo Gutierrez and his mother, Hermesenda Gatonez and Elvira Agatomes appear to be confused versions of the same woman, the wife of Hermengildo. Also, Hermengildo's daughter should be Ildonca Menendez, not Gutierrez.
     "3. Vermudo II is shown as illegitimate son of Ordono III by Aragonta Pelaez. This is a theory of longstanding, but unsupported by the contemporary record. At it's heart, it was proposed by Justo Perez de Urbel to explain a charter in which Vermudo refers to his 'great-grandfather' Gonzalo Betotez, from whom neither Ordono not his wife descend. It was then suggested that he was illegitimate, that this explains why he was passed over in favor of his uncle, and why his son was described by a muslim chronicler as "son of a mule". Perez de Urbel then searched the likely families from which the mother may have derived for one with known daughters, descended from Gonzalo, and lit on the family of Pelayo Gonzalez, great-grandson of the earlier Count. Two of his daughters were unmarried at the time Vermudo was born, and he decided the mother was likely one of them. Subsequent works have adopted this, picking one or the other of the daughters (usually Aragonta Pelaez) to remove the disconcerting ambiguity over which the mother was.
     "However, some big names in the field, most notably Emilio Saez Sanchez, who knew more about the royal family of this period than any other scholar of his generation, never accepted this solution. Vermudo was obviously passed over because of his youth, not illegitimacy, and further, if you look at prior generations, at the time of Vermudo's accession, of the previous 11 kings, only two followed his father, so the failure of Vermudo to succeed hardly needs some special circumstance to account for it. Likewise, a big hole in the theory involve the Asturian practice of not distinguishing ancestors from ancestors-in-law, and the first wife of Vermudo, Velasquita, was of unknown parentage. Were she, rather than Vermudo, the descendant of Count Gonzalo, Vermudo would still have called him "great-grandfather", without having to postulate that Vermudo himself was illegitimate. Recent work on Velasquita has concluded exactly that - that she was daughter of Count Ramiro, either brother or uncle of Pelayo, and hence there is no reason whatsoever to conclude that Vermudo was illegitimate or that he was son of anyone other than Urraca Fernandez.
     "4. The wife of Sancho Garcia, Count of Castile is shown as Urraca Salvadorez. This derived from the invented pedigree making her daughter of a Salvador Perez, son of Fernan Gonzalez. neither of these last two actually existed. She is shown as daughter of Gomez Diaz, which is the currect 'best guess', but if so, the Countess would have been Urraca Gomez. (Not that inaccordance with this, Pedro Fernandez, son of Count Fernan Gonzalez, should be removed - I don't know if there is evidence for the daughter Toda Fernandez also shown as daughter of Urraca Garces, second wife of Fernan.)
     "5. Raymond (Raimundo) II, Count of Ribagorza, is given the wrong pedigree entirely. He was son of Bernard I, Count of Ribagorza, by one of the daughters of Galindo Aznar II of Castile, a half-sister of Endregota Galindez, Queen of Navarre. Bernard was son of Raimund I, Count of Pallars and Ribagorza, son (apparently) of Count Lope. He (Raimond I) was brother of Dadildis of Pallars, who married as his second wife, Count Garcia Jimenez, and by him was mother of Sancho I Garces, who was not, as is shown, son of Garcia by his first wife, Oneca, Rebel of Sanguesa. Oneca was, however, mother of Sancha Garces, wife of Galindo Aznar II and mother of Endregota Galindez. This is all documented by the Codice de Roda, which is thought to have been compiled at the time of the marriage of Garci Fernandez of Castile to Ava of Ribagorza, daughter of Raimund II.
     "6. The parentage of this Garcia Jimenez is entirely invented. He was son of a Jimeno, as shown by the name, but nothing more is known (the father is sometimes called Jimeno the Strong, but that man lived too much earlier to be the same as Garcia's father). The pedigree as shown was one of several concocted to provide a legitimacy to the usurpation of the royal title by the family which held a regency during the extended captivity of King Fortun Garces. In fact, there is no reason to hypothisize a close relationship, and certainly not the specific one shown. He should just be given as son of Jimeno (no patronymic). Likewise, Inigo, father of Inigo Arista, should not have a father. He himself is only known through his son's patronymic, and the Jimeno shown either results from confusion or invention.
     "7. There is no basis of a wife's name for Inigo Arista. Likewise, his relationship to Muza ibn Qasi is problematic. A near-contemporary muslim chronicler calls them half-brothers on their mothers side, while the Codice de Roda indicates that Muza married the daughter of Inigo Arista. There are several possibilities here. The most obvious is that they are both right - that Muza married his half-niece. Alternatively, one or the other (or both) of these sources could be mistaken. It could be that the Roda document has placed the girl in the wrong generation, and that Muza married a half-sister of Inigo Arista (this is what is shown). Alternatively, these could both be shadow memories of a single relationship via a female, in which case we are like the man with two watches, with no basis to conclude which is right (or if both are a little off).
Well, that's a start. taf."12

; Per Med Lands:
     "VERMUDO de León, [illegitimate] son of ORDOÑO III King of León & [his wife Urraca Fernández de Castilla] or [his mistress --- Peláez] ([953]-El Bierzo Sep 999, bur Villabuena, later transferred to León[548]). An interpolation in the Crónica de Sampiro records that “Rex Ordonius” abandoned (“reliquit”) his wife “Urracam filiam...comitis Fredinandi” and married “aliam…uxorem…Geloiram” by whom he had “Veremundum Regem, qui podagricus [“with gout”] fuit”[549]. His paternal ancestry is confirmed by the charter dated 26 Nov 990 under which King Vermudo confirmed donations to the monastery of Carracedo, including the donations made “villam Sellina...patris mei domini Ordoni” and by “avus nostri donus Ranemirus...ad monasterium sanctæ Mariæ de Taulo”[550]. The question of his mother´s identity is discussed above under the possible mistress of his father King Ordoño. “…Veremudus…princeps, prolis Ordonii regis…” confirmed the charter dated 1 Jan 968 under which “Giluira…prolis…regis…cum suprino meo…principe domno Ranemiro, soboli…Sanctionis” donated property to Celanova[551]. This charter indicates that, at that date, Vermudo was a fully integrated member of the royal family despite his possible illegitimacy, and may have been considered as next in line to the throne. He succeeded in 985 as VERMUDO II "el Gotoso" King of León. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium records that "Vermudo the son of Ordoño" succeeded as king after the death of King Ramiro III[552]. The Crónica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, records that "Veremudus Ordinii filius" returned to León after the death of King Ramiro III and succeeded "pacifice", adding that he was “vir satis prudens” and introduced laws “a Vambano principe”[553]. King Vermudo is described as "foolish and a tyrant in everything he did" in the Chronicon Regum Legionensium[554], which contrasts with the more sympathetic picture of the king in the Historia Silense[555]. He allied himself with García Fernández Conde de Castilla, whose daughter he married, but Muslim advances under al-Mansur continued. García Gómez Conde de Saldaña rebelled against him in 988. Gonzalo Vermúdez rebelled in 989 and in 993 succeeded in temporarily expelling King Vermudo from León. In 995, al-Mansur attacked León and destroyed Santa María de Carrión. King Vermudo sought refuge in Astorga, from where he was obliged to offer annual tribute[556]. In 997, King Vermudo took advantage of al-Mansur's absence campaigning in North Africa to suspend payment of the tribute, but León was subjected to devastating campaigns of revenge by Muslim forces which established a garrison at Zamora[557]. King Vermudo II donated property “ad Septentrione plaga, per latus, montis Villara...”, defined in relation to “termino de Papelli...Bacarii, quam inter uxor meus Froylani Regis filius...ad fratrem Recaredus anacoreta...testauit amica nostra domina Teresia...quod fuit de amica nostra regina domina Geluira a diue memorie”, to the monastery of San Vicente de Pombeiro by charter dated 29 Jun 997, confirmed by “Ordonius filius Regis, Adefonsus Parbulus filius Regis...Geluira Regina...Froyla Gumsalbiz, Bestario Bimarace, Teresia Deo dicata, Froyla Menendici, Arias Fernandici...”[558]. The Crónica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, records that King Vermudo died "secundo anno post azeifam terra Bericensi proprio morbo" after reigning for seventeen years[559]. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium records that King Vermudo was struck down with gout and "was carried from place to place on the shoulders of humble men", and died "in the Bierzo and was buried in Villabuena, and after several years he was translated to León", after reigning for seventeen years, a later passage recording that he died "in the era 1037 (999)"[560]. The Chronicon del Salterio, dated to 1055, records the death "V f[eri]a M stbr era TXXXVII" of "dmi Veremudi regis"[561]. The Chronicon Compostellani records that “Veremudi, Ordonii filius” reigned 17 years[562].
     "m firstly (before 11 Oct 981, repudiated after 24 Dec 988) VELASQUITA ---, daughter of --- (-after 15 Aug 1028). "Veremudus prolix Ord. Rex, Velasquita uxor ipsius" are named in a charter of Samos dated 11 Oct 981[563]. “Velasquida regina” confirmed a charter dated 29 Sep 985 under which King Vermudo II donated property to Celanova[564]. “Velasquita regina” confirmed a charter dated 24 Dec 988 under which King Vermudo II donated property to Celanova[565]. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Velasquita" as the first legitimate wife of King Vermudo, specifying that he "divorced while she was living"[566]. Her parentage is not known, nor has any source been identified which specifies her patronymic. The problem has been discussed in detail by García Álvarez[567]. Various hypotheses have been proposed:
     "According to Sandoval, Velasquita was the daughter of Ordoño IV “el Malo” King of León by his wife Urraca Fernández de Castilla, but he cites no primary source on which he bases this statement[568]. The hypothesis is repeated by Salazar y Castro, also without citing any primary source[569]. If it is correct, King Vermudo must have been born illegitimate as his father would have been the first husband of the same Urraca Fernández.
     "Flórez suggests that Velasquita was the daughter of García Fernández Conde de Castilla: he quotes a charter dated 1006 in which Velasquita donated property to Oviedo Cathedral, naming "suprino et privigno meo Regi Adefonso" [Alfonso V King of León, son of King Vermudo´s second marriage], and suggests that the only way of explaining “suprino” is if Velasquita was the sister of Vermudo´s second wife[570]. However, it is uncertain that “suprino” can be interpreted in all cases in the strict sense of nephew. An example of a wider interpretation of the words which normally indicate specific family relationships is provided by the charter dated 6 Aug 1031 under which King Vermudo III names "tia mea Urraca regina Garseani regis filia"[571], which clearly refers to his stepmother. In addition, the charter dated 4 Oct 1032, under which King Vermudo III exchanged “villa Lapeto qui fuit de abia mea regina domna Velasquita” with “comes Pelagio Froilaz et uxor vestra comitissa Ildontia Ordoniz”[572], indicates, if read literally, that Velasquita was the mother of King Alfonso V, which the unfavorable chronology suggests is incorrect and is also contradicted by the Chronicon Regum Legionensium which names "Alfonso and Teresa" as the children of King Vermudo and his wife Elvira. García Álvarez also suggests that “suprino” in the 1006 charter could indicate a relationship in the second or third degree[573].
     "According to Risco, Velasquita was the daughter of Ramiro II King of León: he quotes an epitaph in León Cathedral which records “Velasquita regina prolis Ranimiri”. He assumes that “Ranimiri” indicates one of the kings of León, concludes that King Ramiro II is the only possibility (bearing in mind the chronological impossibility of the text referring to Ramiro III), and assumes that King Vermudo must therefore have been separated from his first wife for reasons of consanguinity[574]. García Álvarez considers that the total absence of references in the sources to this suggested parentage would be inexplicable if the hypothesis was correct, and also points out the chronological difficulty because King Ramiro II died in 951[575] (and in addition married secondly in [932/34]). The hypothesis also appears unlikely as it would mean that King Vermudo married his own great-aunt.
     "The editor of the Libro Registro de Corias proposed that Velasquita was the daughter of King Ramiro III[576]. García Álvarez quotes an undated charter of Corias under which “Dompna Cara” donated “uillam de Azeliana” to “Ordonio Radimiriz, fratri regine domne Velasquide, et filio regis Radimiriz”[577]. He notes that Sánchez Candeira demonstrated convincingly the impossibility that Velasquita was the sister of Ordoño Ramírez, and in addition cites another charter of Corias dated 1084, under which the same donor donated other property, which throws extreme doubt on the authenticity of the earlier charter[578]. Whatever the other merits of the argument, it is chronologically impossible considering that the birth of King Ramiro III is dated to [961].
     "García Álvarez, on the basis that Velasquita´s father was named Ramiro as indicated by the León Cathedral epitaph quoted above, suggests that she was the daughter of Ramiro Menéndez[579]. If that hypothesis is correct, she was Velasquita Ramírez, daughter of conde Ramiro Menéndez & his wife Adosinda Gutiérrez. This parentage is also suggested because she is cited with her supposed mother in [981/88][580]. However, the indications adduced by García Álvarez appear circumstancial. The other difficulty is why Vermudo would have married the daughter of a relatively obscure Galician nobleman, who was the third son of his parents.
     "Torres records that, after her repudiation, Velasquita took refuge in Oviedo where she arranged her daughter's marriage with the son of Queen Sancha Gómez, who was also exiled in Oviedo[581]. Queen Velasquita granted “la villa de Eiras” to “Félix Agelaz” by charter dated 15 Aug 1028[582].
     "m secondly (991) ELVIRA García de Castilla, daughter of GARCÍA Fernández Conde de Castilla & his wife Ava de Ribagorza (-Dec 1017). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Elvira" as the second legitimate wife of King Vermudo[583]. Her parentage is confirmed by Ibn-Khaldun who records King Alfonso V as "petit-fils par sa mère du seigneur d´Alava Garcia Fernandez"[584]. Regent of León 999-1007 during the minority of her son Alfonso V. "Geluira Regina…cum filio meo Adefonso Rex" donated property "ad villam de Paramo" to the church of León by charter dated 12 Nov 1000 which she signed "Gelvira Regina prolis Garseani et Avæ"[585]. "Giloira regina" confirmed the donation of serfs "in valle Castelle" made by "vir meus domnus Veremudus rex", for the soul of "filii mei regis dni Adefonsi", by charter dated 8 Jul 1001[586]. She became a nun in 1007. "Geloira regina" donated property to Santiago de Compostela by charter dated 18 Aug 1017, subscribed by "Adefonsus princeps, Sancia proles Ueremudi, Tarasia proles Ueremudi, Geloira proles Ueremudi…"[587]. The Chronicon del Salterio, dated to 1055, records the death "V f[eri]a M stbr era TXXXVII" of "dmi Veremudi regis" and "uxor eius Gelbire era TLV"[588].
     "Mistress (1): [VELASQUITA, daughter of MANTELLO & his wife Bellala ---. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "a country girl named Velasquita, who was the daughter of Mantello and Bellalla from Miero near Monte Copián [filia Mantelli et Vellalæ de Meres iuxta montem Coptianem]" as the mother of King Vermudo's daughter Cristina[589]. As noted below, there is confusion in this source between Queen Velasquita, King Vermudo´s first wife and mother of his daughter Cristina, and this possible mistress. It is possible that this “country girl...Velasquita” never existed and that she was invented in order to blacken the name of the repudiated queen. If this is correct, the origin of the name “Mantello” is not known.]"

     Elvira Garces de Lara de Castile, Regent of León was born circa 973 at Castile, Spain.3 She married Bermudo II "el Gotoso" (?) King of Asturias, Galicia and Leon, son of Ordono III (?) King of Leon and NN Peláez (?), in November 991.1,2,5,6,3
Elvira Garces de Lara de Castile, Regent of León died in December 1017.2,3,4
     ; Per Med Lands:
     "VERMUDO de León, [illegitimate] son of ORDOÑO III King of León & [his wife Urraca Fernández de Castilla] or [his mistress --- Peláez] ([953]-El Bierzo Sep 999, bur Villabuena, later transferred to León[548]). An interpolation in the Crónica de Sampiro records that “Rex Ordonius” abandoned (“reliquit”) his wife “Urracam filiam...comitis Fredinandi” and married “aliam…uxorem…Geloiram” by whom he had “Veremundum Regem, qui podagricus [“with gout”] fuit”[549]. His paternal ancestry is confirmed by the charter dated 26 Nov 990 under which King Vermudo confirmed donations to the monastery of Carracedo, including the donations made “villam Sellina...patris mei domini Ordoni” and by “avus nostri donus Ranemirus...ad monasterium sanctæ Mariæ de Taulo”[550]. The question of his mother´s identity is discussed above under the possible mistress of his father King Ordoño. “…Veremudus…princeps, prolis Ordonii regis…” confirmed the charter dated 1 Jan 968 under which “Giluira…prolis…regis…cum suprino meo…principe domno Ranemiro, soboli…Sanctionis” donated property to Celanova[551]. This charter indicates that, at that date, Vermudo was a fully integrated member of the royal family despite his possible illegitimacy, and may have been considered as next in line to the throne. He succeeded in 985 as VERMUDO II "el Gotoso" King of León. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium records that "Vermudo the son of Ordoño" succeeded as king after the death of King Ramiro III[552]. The Crónica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, records that "Veremudus Ordinii filius" returned to León after the death of King Ramiro III and succeeded "pacifice", adding that he was “vir satis prudens” and introduced laws “a Vambano principe”[553]. King Vermudo is described as "foolish and a tyrant in everything he did" in the Chronicon Regum Legionensium[554], which contrasts with the more sympathetic picture of the king in the Historia Silense[555]. He allied himself with García Fernández Conde de Castilla, whose daughter he married, but Muslim advances under al-Mansur continued. García Gómez Conde de Saldaña rebelled against him in 988. Gonzalo Vermúdez rebelled in 989 and in 993 succeeded in temporarily expelling King Vermudo from León. In 995, al-Mansur attacked León and destroyed Santa María de Carrión. King Vermudo sought refuge in Astorga, from where he was obliged to offer annual tribute[556]. In 997, King Vermudo took advantage of al-Mansur's absence campaigning in North Africa to suspend payment of the tribute, but León was subjected to devastating campaigns of revenge by Muslim forces which established a garrison at Zamora[557]. King Vermudo II donated property “ad Septentrione plaga, per latus, montis Villara...”, defined in relation to “termino de Papelli...Bacarii, quam inter uxor meus Froylani Regis filius...ad fratrem Recaredus anacoreta...testauit amica nostra domina Teresia...quod fuit de amica nostra regina domina Geluira a diue memorie”, to the monastery of San Vicente de Pombeiro by charter dated 29 Jun 997, confirmed by “Ordonius filius Regis, Adefonsus Parbulus filius Regis...Geluira Regina...Froyla Gumsalbiz, Bestario Bimarace, Teresia Deo dicata, Froyla Menendici, Arias Fernandici...”[558]. The Crónica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, records that King Vermudo died "secundo anno post azeifam terra Bericensi proprio morbo" after reigning for seventeen years[559]. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium records that King Vermudo was struck down with gout and "was carried from place to place on the shoulders of humble men", and died "in the Bierzo and was buried in Villabuena, and after several years he was translated to León", after reigning for seventeen years, a later passage recording that he died "in the era 1037 (999)"[560]. The Chronicon del Salterio, dated to 1055, records the death "V f[eri]a M stbr era TXXXVII" of "dmi Veremudi regis"[561]. The Chronicon Compostellani records that “Veremudi, Ordonii filius” reigned 17 years[562].
     "m firstly (before 11 Oct 981, repudiated after 24 Dec 988) VELASQUITA ---, daughter of --- (-after 15 Aug 1028). "Veremudus prolix Ord. Rex, Velasquita uxor ipsius" are named in a charter of Samos dated 11 Oct 981[563]. “Velasquida regina” confirmed a charter dated 29 Sep 985 under which King Vermudo II donated property to Celanova[564]. “Velasquita regina” confirmed a charter dated 24 Dec 988 under which King Vermudo II donated property to Celanova[565]. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Velasquita" as the first legitimate wife of King Vermudo, specifying that he "divorced while she was living"[566]. Her parentage is not known, nor has any source been identified which specifies her patronymic. The problem has been discussed in detail by García Álvarez[567]. Various hypotheses have been proposed:
     "According to Sandoval, Velasquita was the daughter of Ordoño IV “el Malo” King of León by his wife Urraca Fernández de Castilla, but he cites no primary source on which he bases this statement[568]. The hypothesis is repeated by Salazar y Castro, also without citing any primary source[569]. If it is correct, King Vermudo must have been born illegitimate as his father would have been the first husband of the same Urraca Fernández.
     "Flórez suggests that Velasquita was the daughter of García Fernández Conde de Castilla: he quotes a charter dated 1006 in which Velasquita donated property to Oviedo Cathedral, naming "suprino et privigno meo Regi Adefonso" [Alfonso V King of León, son of King Vermudo´s second marriage], and suggests that the only way of explaining “suprino” is if Velasquita was the sister of Vermudo´s second wife[570]. However, it is uncertain that “suprino” can be interpreted in all cases in the strict sense of nephew. An example of a wider interpretation of the words which normally indicate specific family relationships is provided by the charter dated 6 Aug 1031 under which King Vermudo III names "tia mea Urraca regina Garseani regis filia"[571], which clearly refers to his stepmother. In addition, the charter dated 4 Oct 1032, under which King Vermudo III exchanged “villa Lapeto qui fuit de abia mea regina domna Velasquita” with “comes Pelagio Froilaz et uxor vestra comitissa Ildontia Ordoniz”[572], indicates, if read literally, that Velasquita was the mother of King Alfonso V, which the unfavorable chronology suggests is incorrect and is also contradicted by the Chronicon Regum Legionensium which names "Alfonso and Teresa" as the children of King Vermudo and his wife Elvira. García Álvarez also suggests that “suprino” in the 1006 charter could indicate a relationship in the second or third degree[573].
     "According to Risco, Velasquita was the daughter of Ramiro II King of León: he quotes an epitaph in León Cathedral which records “Velasquita regina prolis Ranimiri”. He assumes that “Ranimiri” indicates one of the kings of León, concludes that King Ramiro II is the only possibility (bearing in mind the chronological impossibility of the text referring to Ramiro III), and assumes that King Vermudo must therefore have been separated from his first wife for reasons of consanguinity[574]. García Álvarez considers that the total absence of references in the sources to this suggested parentage would be inexplicable if the hypothesis was correct, and also points out the chronological difficulty because King Ramiro II died in 951[575] (and in addition married secondly in [932/34]). The hypothesis also appears unlikely as it would mean that King Vermudo married his own great-aunt.
     "The editor of the Libro Registro de Corias proposed that Velasquita was the daughter of King Ramiro III[576]. García Álvarez quotes an undated charter of Corias under which “Dompna Cara” donated “uillam de Azeliana” to “Ordonio Radimiriz, fratri regine domne Velasquide, et filio regis Radimiriz”[577]. He notes that Sánchez Candeira demonstrated convincingly the impossibility that Velasquita was the sister of Ordoño Ramírez, and in addition cites another charter of Corias dated 1084, under which the same donor donated other property, which throws extreme doubt on the authenticity of the earlier charter[578]. Whatever the other merits of the argument, it is chronologically impossible considering that the birth of King Ramiro III is dated to [961].
     "García Álvarez, on the basis that Velasquita´s father was named Ramiro as indicated by the León Cathedral epitaph quoted above, suggests that she was the daughter of Ramiro Menéndez[579]. If that hypothesis is correct, she was Velasquita Ramírez, daughter of conde Ramiro Menéndez & his wife Adosinda Gutiérrez. This parentage is also suggested because she is cited with her supposed mother in [981/88][580]. However, the indications adduced by García Álvarez appear circumstancial. The other difficulty is why Vermudo would have married the daughter of a relatively obscure Galician nobleman, who was the third son of his parents.
     "Torres records that, after her repudiation, Velasquita took refuge in Oviedo where she arranged her daughter's marriage with the son of Queen Sancha Gómez, who was also exiled in Oviedo[581]. Queen Velasquita granted “la villa de Eiras” to “Félix Agelaz” by charter dated 15 Aug 1028[582].
     "m secondly (991) ELVIRA García de Castilla, daughter of GARCÍA Fernández Conde de Castilla & his wife Ava de Ribagorza (-Dec 1017). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Elvira" as the second legitimate wife of King Vermudo[583]. Her parentage is confirmed by Ibn-Khaldun who records King Alfonso V as "petit-fils par sa mère du seigneur d´Alava Garcia Fernandez"[584]. Regent of León 999-1007 during the minority of her son Alfonso V. "Geluira Regina…cum filio meo Adefonso Rex" donated property "ad villam de Paramo" to the church of León by charter dated 12 Nov 1000 which she signed "Gelvira Regina prolis Garseani et Avæ"[585]. "Giloira regina" confirmed the donation of serfs "in valle Castelle" made by "vir meus domnus Veremudus rex", for the soul of "filii mei regis dni Adefonsi", by charter dated 8 Jul 1001[586]. She became a nun in 1007. "Geloira regina" donated property to Santiago de Compostela by charter dated 18 Aug 1017, subscribed by "Adefonsus princeps, Sancia proles Ueremudi, Tarasia proles Ueremudi, Geloira proles Ueremudi…"[587]. The Chronicon del Salterio, dated to 1055, records the death "V f[eri]a M stbr era TXXXVII" of "dmi Veremudi regis" and "uxor eius Gelbire era TLV"[588].
     "Mistress (1): [VELASQUITA, daughter of MANTELLO & his wife Bellala ---. The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "a country girl named Velasquita, who was the daughter of Mantello and Bellalla from Miero near Monte Copián [filia Mantelli et Vellalæ de Meres iuxta montem Coptianem]" as the mother of King Vermudo's daughter Cristina[589]. As noted below, there is confusion in this source between Queen Velasquita, King Vermudo´s first wife and mother of his daughter Cristina, and this possible mistress. It is possible that this “country girl...Velasquita” never existed and that she was invented in order to blacken the name of the repudiated queen. If this is correct, the origin of the name “Mantello” is not known.]"

Ordono III (?) King of Leon died between 955 and 956 at Zamora, Spain.2,4
     GAV-29 EDV-29.

Reference: Ordoño III (c.?926–956) was the King of León from 951 to 956, son and successor of Ramiro II (931–951). He confronted Navarre and Castile, who supported his half-brother Sancho the Fat in disputing Ordoño's claim to the throne.

He also had to deal with internal rebellion, attacks from the Muslims of al-Andalus, and the rebellion of Galicia. In response to the Muslims, Ordoño III led a raid as far as Lisbon (955), coming back north with a very lucrative loot.[1] Faced with this great show of force, Abd-al-Rahman III (912–961) was pushed to negotiate and conclude a peace treaty with the king of León.

He tried to continue the actions of his father in fortifying the land and the royal authority in the face of the contumacious and secessional Fernán González of Castile. He even married Fernán's daughter Urraca and later repudiated her over her father's alliance with Sancho.

Urraca bore him at least two children: a son named Ordoño who died young and a daughter named Theresa who became a nun. Ordoño III was also father of Bermudo II, but opinion is divided as to whether he was son of Urraca, or of a mistress, one of the daughters of Count Pelayo Gonzalez.

Ordoño III died at Zamora in 956.4

; Per Med Lands:
     "[daughter (-after [955]). Pérez de Urbel suggests that one of the daughters of Pelayo González was the mistress of Ordoño III King of León and the mother of King Vermudo II[75]. He bases his argument on three charters. Firstly, King Vermudo donated property to the monastery of San Lorenzo de Carbonario, for the souls of “abii mei divæ memoriæ comes dominus Gundisalbus...et...uxori...coniuncta comitissa domina Tarasia”, by charter dated 5 Jan 999[76]. The couple “comes dominus Gundisalbus...et...uxori...coniuncta comitissa domina Tarasia” are identified as Conde Gonzalo Betótiz and his wife Teresa Eriz, who lived in the late 9th/early 10th century and the birth of whose children is estimated to the early part of the 10th century (see above). Yepes noted the couple as founders of San Lorenzo de Carboeiro by charter dated 936, although he does not cite the primary source[77]. The chronology of Conde Gonzalo indicates that “abii” cannot in this document be interpreted in its strict sense of grandparents. However, if the word indicates more remote ancestry, it would be chronologically possible for King Vermudo´s mother to have been the granddaughter of Conde Gonzalo. Secondly, Pérez de Urbel cites the 973 charter quoted above which names the three sisters Gontroda, Aragonta and Teresa, all three nuns at that date. Thirdly, he discusses the charter dated 29 Jun 997 under which King Vermudo II donated property “ad Septentrione plaga, per latus, montis Villara...” to the monastery of San Vicente de Pombeiro, and confirmed donations made by “...amica [amita?] nostra domina Teresia...”, the document being subscribed by “...Teresia Deo dicata...”[78]. He suggests that “Tarasia Deo uota” in the 973 charter was the same person as “[amita] nostra...Teresa...Teresia Deo dicata” in the 29 Jun 997 charter. In light of these three documents, Pérez de Urbel suggests that King Vermudo´s mother was a daughter of Pelayo González and his wife Ermesinda Gutiérrez. Her possible name ELVIRA is suggested by an interpolation in the Cronica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the España Sagrada edition of the Chronicon, which records that “Rex Ordonius” abandoned (“reliquit”) his wife “Urracam filiam...comitis Fredinandi” and married “aliam…uxorem…Geloiram” by whom he had “Veremundum Regem, qui podagricus [“with gout”] fuit”[79]. The issues connected with this passage are discussed in detail in the document ASTURIAS, LEÓN KINGS. It is also possible that King Vermudo´s mother was either Gontroda or Aragonta, named above as Pelayo´s daughters, either of whom may have become nuns after his birth, or that she was a different otherwise unrecorded daughter who may have died soon after Vermudo´s birth and therefore left no trace in the surviving documentation. It should be noted that other arguments have been advanced in favour of the legitimacy of King Vermudo who, in that case, would have been born to his father´s known wife Urraca Fernández (see ASTURIAS, LEÓN KINGS). If that is correct, this suggested daughter of Pelayo González would probably not have existed at all.

     ; The surnames had been familiar surnames since the moment they were hereditary. Meneses: I am no sure about this point. I know which of them were not called Meneses: The firs one: Tello Pérez was named only Tello Pérez and the same thing for their sons: Tello Tellez, the bishop; Suero Téllez and Alfonso Téllez, who married
twice: with Elvira Rodriguez and second with Teresa Sánchez of Portugal . The first named “de Meneses” could be this last one: Alfonso Téllez, or, more probably, one of his sons with Elvira Rodríguez: Tello Alfonso and other Alfonso Téllez.1
