He was a son of Garcia Jimenez, who was Regent of Pamplona 870-880 and app arently co-king of Pamplona from 860 up to 882. Sancho may also have be en a co-king during the reign of Fortun I of Pamplona.
The elderly Sancho succeeded King Fortun Garces when the latter was depos ed by his enemies in 905.
Sancho's first wife Urraca, daughter of count of Aragon, did not have surv iving children. Thus, Sancho's heirs were his children from his second mar riage with queen Toda Aznarez and were born in his last decade of life, wh en he was an old man. Their minority led to special arrangements in the su ccession.
Queen Toda Aznarez (Teuda of Larraun) was a daughter of Aznar Sanchez, lo rd of Larraun, cadet of the Aritza line of kings of Pamplona, and of his w ife Oneca Fortunez who herself was a daughter of Fortun Garces. Thus, Toda 's children also descended from the first kings of Pamplona, the Iniguez l ine.
Sancho I Garces fought against the Moors with repeated success and join ed Ultra-Puertos, or Basse-Navarre, to his own dominions, also extending i ts territory as far as Najera. As a thank-offering for his victories, he f ounded, in 924, the convent of Albelda. Before his death, all Moors had be en driven from the country.
King Sancho Garces was succeeded by his brother Jimeno, but his young s on Garcia Sanchez also received the royal title, and after Jimeno's dea th in 931, the young Garcia became the sole king.
