Jimeno DE PAMPLONA
Compiler's 34/35/36/37 great-grandfather
His name is indicated only by the patronymic accorded to his sons in the Codex de Roda. No direct information has been found relating to Jimeno. However, the Chronicon Fontanellensis records that ambassadors from "Induonis et Mitionis Ducum Naverrorum" attended Charles II "le Chauve" King of the West Franks "in Vermeria Palatio" with gifts and agreed peace, dated to 851. A footnote in the edition consulted notes that Marca, in his Historiæ Bearniæ, corrects the apparent reference to two individuals in this edition to "Inniconis Eminonis Duc. Navarr". Jaurgain records that Oïhenart suggests that the names should in fact be "Iniconis et Ximinonis", adding that they should be identified with "Eneco-Garcia et Semen-Garcia, neveux du souverain de Pamplone". This hypothesis is not acceptable from a chronological point of view. It is more likely that, if the passage intends to refer to two individuals, they were Íñigo Iñíguez and Jimeno, father of García Jiménez. The Libro de Regla of Leire Monastery, compiled in 1076, records that "filius eius Eximinus Enecones" succeeded "rex Enneco Garseanes", adding that his wife was "Munia" and that he died "era DCCLXXV". This source is confused and contradicted by numerous other primary sources in many of the details which it records. It is not certain that it can be assumed that this passage refers to the father of Íñigo Jiménez. 1
