  Research Notes:

The Arab historian Ibn Hayyân indicates that King Íñigo´s father was also named Íñigo: he records the death in the Muslim year 237 (5 Jul 851/22 Jun 852 A.D.) of "Wannaqo ibn Wannaqo frère uterin et allié de Musa ibn Musa" and the accession of "son fils Garsiya…comme émir de Pampelune". However, the source is rather confused as in other passages it names "Musa et son allié Garsiya ibn Wannaqo, emir des Gascons (d'autres disent que son allié était Furtun ibn Wannaqo, son frère uterin)" and records that "Musa ibn Musa al-Qasawi…fut aidé par son frère utérin, le chef de Pampelune, ibn Wannaqo". Another possible parentage of Iñigo is suggested by Ibn Hazm who records that "Musa ibn Musa" arranged the marriages of "las hijas de su hermano Lubb ibn Musa" with "los hijos de Wanaqo ibn Sanyo, rey de los Vascos". The Libro de Regla of Leire Monastery, compiled in 1076, records the death "era DCCV" of "rex Enneco Garseanes", adding that his wife was "Eximena". This source, however, is even more confused than Ibn Hayyân and is contradicted by numerous other primary sources in many of the details which it records. It is therefore not certain to whom "Enneco Garseanes" refers.

[He married] the widow of Musa ibn Fortún, head of the Banu Qasi family, daughter of ---. Her two marriages are indicated by Al-Udri who names "Yannaqo ibn Wanniqo" as "hermano de madre de Musa ibn Musa". Her two marriages are also indicated by the Arab historian Ibn Hayyân who names "Musa et son allié Garsiya ibn Wannaqo, emir des Gascons (d'autres dissent que son allié était Furtun ibn Wannaqo, son frère uterin)" and records in a later passage that "Musa ibn Musa al-Qasawi…fut aidé par son frère utérin, le chef de Pampelune, ibn Wannaqo". Settipani highlights the lively academic debate over whether Musa was the first or second husband of the wife of Íñigo.... 1
