  Research Notes:

The Cronica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, records the marriage of "Ordonius filius regis" and "filiam Fredenandi…Urracam", from the context dated to the reconciliation of King Ramiro II and Conde Fernando after the latter's rebellion, which is dated to [943/44] by Torres. “Ordonius…in Regno…cum conjuge Urraca Regina” donated property to the church of Santiago by charter “XV Kal Iun” dated to 952. Pérez de Urbel records that Urraca was not named with her first husband in charters dated 5 Dec 952 and 11 Jul 953, but is named with him in charters dated 8 Jun 954, 15 Jun 954, 12 Oct 954, 10 Mar 955, 15 Apr 955, 11 May 956, 13 May 956 and 30 Aug 956.

Her second marriage is confirmed by the Cronica de Sampiro, as reproduced in the Historia Silense, which records that "Ordonium…Adefonsy regis filium" married "Ferdinando Burgensium comitte…filiam suam…relictam ab Ordonio Ramiri filio".

The Codex de Roda records the marriage of "regem Sanctium" and "Urracam, filiam comitis Sanctii de Castella", although it is chronologically more acceptable that Urraca was the daughter of Conde Fernando, which is confirmed by the charter dated 29 Jun 971 under which "Endregoto Galindonis et prole eius Sancio Garseanis rex et uxor eius Urraca Fredenandizi" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa. The Chronicon Burgense also states incorrectly that King Sancho was “gener comitis Sancii”. "Hordonius…cum coniuge mea Urracha" donated property to Santiago by charter dated 18 Nov 958, subscribed by "Froila confesor et filius Adephonsi regis…". "Sancius rex et Urraka regina…cum germanis nostris Ranimiro et Eximino" confirmed a prior donation to San Pedro de Siresa by "genitor noster Garsea rex" by charter dated 15 Feb 979, confirmed by "Eximino Sancionis, Garsea Furtunionis, Belasco Lihoriz". "Garsias Ferdinandez…cum coniuge mea Ava comitisa" founded the monastery of Infantado de Covarrubias, offering "filiam…nostram Urracam" as a nun there, by charter dated 25 Dec 978, confirmed by "…Sancio rex, Urraka regina, rege Scemeno…". "Garsea rex et uxor mea Eximina, cum domna Urracha regina" donated property to the monastery of San Pedro de Siresa by charter dated to [995/1004].

She became a nun after the death of her third husband. 1

Urraca also married Ordoño IV "el Malo" DE LEÓN, son of Alfonso IV "el Monje" DE LEÓN and Oneca Sánchez DE NAVARRA, before 13 Nov 958. (Ordoño IV "el Malo" DE LEÓN was born about 926 and died in 962.)
