  • Married:

  General Notes:

Compiler's 33/34/35/36/37 great-grandmother

  Research Notes:

Munia daughter of ---. "Walfridus…abba…monachorum monasterii Soricinensis" sold "cella Modulfi", donated by "Arrichoatus comes", to "dominus Garcias, comes et marchio in limitibus oceanis" by charter dated Oct 904, which names "uxoris suæ Aminianæ et…filiis et filiabus". Jaurgain suggests that "Aminiane", wife of Garcia, was the daughter of Guillaume Comte [de Bordeaux] and [Duke of Gascony] whom (it seems) Garcia’s father succeeded, in order to explain in particular the transmission of the name Guillaume into Garcia’s family. The chronology is not ideal for this suggestion. Guillaume Comte [de Bordeaux] is last recorded when he was captured in 848. Jaurgain says “très probablement, il survécut longtemps à ce désastre”. No indication has been found which indicates that Jaurgain’s speculation is correct. Given the estimated birth dates of Garcia’s children, it is unlikely that their mother was born before [860], which would mean that Guillaume survived for a considerable time during which the sources were silent about his career. In any case, the name “Munia” suggests that Garcia’s wife was of Spanish origin. The Historia Abbatiæ Condomensis records that "comitissa…coniux…Garsiæ Principis cognomento Curvi" restored the convent of Condom. 1
