García II Jiménez was the regent of Pamplona from 870 until 880 and appare ntly (sub- or co-)king until his death in 882.
The Basque ruling dynasty (Jiménez) was apparently in control of a pa rt of what would become the kingdom of Navarre distinct from that he ld by the the descendants of Iñigo Arista, and García's father Jime no I of Pamplona appears as equal to Iñigo in a Frankish chronicle in 85 0. García presumably succeeded his father during the lifetime of Garc ía I, and is listed by the Códice de Roda as ruler of "another part of t he kingdom" of Pamplona.
When King García I died in 870, while his son and heir Fortún Garcés was i mprisoned in Córdoba, García Jiménez is thought to have became uncontest ed regent of the kingdom and was at least treated as king and used the roy al title.
García zealously defended his country against the encroachments of the Moo rs and Islam, but was killed at Ayhar (882) in a battle against the Em ir of Córdoba. King Fortún had been released from captivity in 880 and ret urned to be king. After the coup against Fortún in 905, Jimeno's house to ok over the kingship undisputedly.
