    Sunifredo, +849, Ct of Barcelona, Urgel, Girona and Osona; he apparently led a revolt of the indigenous [Visigothic] population against Bernard of Septimania (father of Bernard Plantvelue); he conquered Cerdagne (Cerdana) and Urgell in the 830s and checked a Moorish invasion; he was killed in a counter-attack by Guillaume "le Pieux" 849; m.Ermesinde ___.
    Even more important was a third such family, that of the celebrated Count Guifred the Hairy of Barcelona. The founder of this family's fortunes was a Count Sunifred of Urgell-Cerdanya-Confluent, who ruled these counties from 844 to 848 and in addition was count of Barcelona and Gerona. Abadal believes that Count Sunifred was a fourth son of Count Bellon of Carcassonne to whom he most certainly was related, but it seems more probable that he was descended from Count Borell of Ausona, the original Gothic count of this region. After his death his honores of Barcelona and Gerona went to a series of Frankish counts. Urgell-Cerdanya-Confiuent, however, was given to a certain Count Saloman.
