  • Note:
    Ramiro I (died 8 May 1063) was the first King of Aragon. He was the natur al son of Sancho III of Navarre by his mistress Sancha de Aybar. Ramiro w as reputed to have been adopted by his father's wife Mayor after he was t he only of his father's children to come to her aid when needed. By the di vision of Sancho's realm on his death in 1035, Ramiro received the coun ty of Aragon with the title of baiulus. He was, on account of the small si ze of his Pyrenean kingdom, with its capital at Jaca, called a "petty king ."

    Ramiro sought to enlarge his kingdom at the expense of both Moor and broth er. His reign was uneventful until 1043, when he invaded the Kingdom of Na varre of his eldest half-brother García V. He was defeated in the Batt le of Tafalla. In 1045, he annexed Sobrarbe and Ribagorza, the kingd om of his youngest legitimate half-brother, Gonzalo. This annexation eith er followed Gonzalo's death or his abdication. Though he exercised the roy al prerogative in Aragon, Sobrarbe, and Ribagorza, he never employed the r oyal title in his official documents, always only calling himself "Ramir o, son of the King Sancho."

    Before he was married, Ramiro had a mistress named Amuña with whom he h ad a natural son, Sancho Ramírez, in whom he confided the government of t he county of Ribagorza.

    Another son,from a Lady described as resident or member of the House of Ba rcelona,Velasgutto de Ayala is understood being wed to the House of the Lo rds of Biscay and set in the Marches of Alava,to bond those territories cl oser to the Crown of Pamplona,during the Tenure of the kingdom by the Hou se of Aragon. But eventually Pamplona will be given up,as well as Biscay a nd Alava in a revert of Loyalties to the cousin House of Castile.What wi ll characterize and define the semi-independent relations of the Basque co untry to the kingdoms of Castile or Navarre,for the next centuries until p resent times.

    Ramiro wed his first wife, Gisberga, daughter of Bernard Roger of Bigorr e, on 22 August 1036. She changed her name to Ermesinda on marrying him. T ogether the couple had five children.
