Muniadomna DE ASTURIAS
- Married: Before 912
- Died: After 5 Aug 935
Compiler's 32/33/34/35 great-grandmother
Pérez de Urbel suggests that Muniadomna, wife of Gonzalo Fernández, was the daughter of Ramiro de Asturias titular King of León, based on her supposed mother being present in the castle of Lara, which belonged to Muniadomna, when she witnessed two charters in 927. He also points out the apparent corroboration from the naming of her second son after his supposed maternal grandfather. Muniadomna is referred to as "comitissima", and her descendants referred to in Arab sources as the "Banu Muma" as a tribute to her exceptional character, which may also suggest an illustrious ancestry. "Momadonna cometessa" donated property to the monastery of Santa María de Lara, confirmed by her sons "Fredinando Gundisalviz, Ramiro Gundisalviz", by charter dated 28 Jan 929. "Momadonna cometessa" donated property in Valzalamio to the monastery of Cardeñas with her son "Fredinando Gundisalviz", her son's wife "Sancia" and their sons "Gundesalvuz Fernandez, Sanzio Fernandez" by charter dated 5 Aug [935/38]. 1
Muniadomna married Gonzalo Fernández DE LARA, Conde en Burgos y Castilla, son of Fernando NUÑEZ "él de Castrosiero" and Gutina Díaz DE CASTILLA, before 912. (Gonzalo Fernández DE LARA died after 932 and was buried in Cereso de Rio, Tiron.)
