   General Notes:

Ramon Berenguer I, byname RAMON BERENGUER THE ELDER, Catalan RAMON BERENGUER EL VELL (b. 1023/24--d. May 26, 1076, Barcelona? [Spain]), count of Barcelona from 1035 to 1076.

His father, Berenguer Ramon I (reigned 1018-35), divided and bequeathed his lands among his three sons; however, Sanç (or Sancho) in 1049 and Guillem (or William) in 1054 renounced their inheritances in their eldest brother's favour, thus reuniting the lands. Ramon Berenguer I also expanded his domain by securing control over the adjacent counties of Ampurias and Pallars. His most noted achievement was convoking the local Cortes (assembly) and having it deliberate on a choice of Roman and medieval laws for Catalonia. The result was the promulgation of the celebrated legal code known as the Usatges de Barcelona (1064-68). [Encyclopaedia Britannica CD '97]
