The Crónica de San Juan de la Peña records that Ramiro married "la filla del Comte de Bigorra nombrada Hermissenda et por baptismo Gelberda". The marriage contract between "Ranimirus…prolis Sanctioni regis" and "Gilberga filiam comitis Bernardi-Rodegari et comitissæ matris eius…Garsinde" is dated 22 Aug 1036 and lists her dowry as "castellum…Atheres", judged spurious by the Histoire Générale de Languedoc. She adopted the name ERMESENDA as Queen of Aragon. This is confirmed by the charter dated Oct 1076 under which her daughter "Sancia comitissa Ranimiri regis filia et Armissende regina" donated property to the monastery of Santa Cruz de la Serós. 1
Gisberga married Ramíro I Sánchez DE ARAGÓN, son of Sancho III "el Mayor" DE NAVARRA and Sancha DE AIBAR, Señora de Miranda, Mistress, about 22 Aug 1036 in Jaca, Huesca, Aragón, Spain. (Ramíro I Sánchez DE ARAGÓN was born about 1008 in Aibar, Navarre, Spain and died on 8 May 1063 at the Battle of Graus, Huesca, Spain.)
