Leodegundis DE ASTURIAS
The manuscript of the Codex de Roda entitled "Versi domna Leodegundia regina" names "Leodegundiam Ordonii filiam" and indicates her position as Queen of Pamplona after her marriage. She has been identified as a possible second wife of García I Íñiguez King of Pamplona but, as there is no indication of dates in the "Versi", this is mere speculation. Barrau-Dihigo casts doubt on this identification. It is of course possible that she was not a historical figure at all. It may have been convenient for chroniclers of the rulers of Pamplona to invent a dynastic connection with the kings of Asturias in order to boost local credibility. 1
Leodegundis may have married García I Iñíguez DE PAMPLONA, son of Íñigo Arista DE PAMPLONA and Oneca. (García I Iñíguez DE PAMPLONA was born about 810 in Pamplona, Navarre, Spain and died in 882 in Lumberri.)
