    Ordoño III (c.926?Zamora, 956) was the king of León from 951 to 956, son a nd successor of Ramiro II (931-951). He confronted Navarre and Castile, w ho supported his stepbrother Sancho the Fat, who disputed Ordoño's cla im to the throne.
    This was not the only problem of his reign, however, he had to deal with i nternal rebellion, attacks from the Muslims of al-Andalus, and the rebelli on of Galicia. In response to the Muslims, Ordoño III sent troops as f ar as Lisbon (955). Before this great show of force, the Muslims had nothi ng to do but ask for peace. Negotiations ended with a treaty between the k ing of León and the caliph of Córdoba Abd al-Rahman III (912-961).
    He tried to continue the actions of his father in fortifying the land a nd the royal authority in the face of the contumacious and secesional Cou nt Fernán González.
