    KING OF NAVARRE 1134-1150

    RESEARCH NOTES:
    King of Navarre [Ref: Weis AR7 #113A, Tapsell Dynasties p231, Paget HRHCharles p63]

    1134-1150: King of Navarre, as Garcia V [Ref: Tapsell Dynasties p231]

    ------------------
    Garca VI Ramrez (Garsias Ranimiriz, also Garca IV, because he was only the fourth Garcia of the Jiminez dynasty; died 21 November 1150, Lorca), called the Restorer (Spanish: el Restaurador), was Lord of Monzn and Logro, and, from 1134, King of Navarre. He "restored" the independence of the Navarrese crown after 58 years of union with the Kingdom of Aragon.

    Garca was born in the early twelfth century, the grandson of Rodrigo Daz, better known as El Cid. His father was Ramiro Sanchez of Monzn, a son of Sancho Garcs, illegitimate son of Garca V of Navarre and half-brother of Sancho IV. His mother was Cristina Rodrguez Daz de Vivar, the Cid's daughter.

    When Aragon, which had from 1076 been united to Navarre, lost its warrior king Alfonso the Battler and fell into a succession crisis in 1134, Garca managed to wrest Navarre from his likewise illegitimate Aragonese cousins. He was elected in Pamplona by the bishops and nobles of the realm against the will of Alfonso. That Alfonso, in drawing up a will, had ignored his distant relation (of an illegitimate line), is not unsurprising given the circumstances. Alfonso had nearer male kin in the form of his (also illegitimate) brother Ramiro. Besides that, since Alfonso seems to have disregarded Ramiro as well, the choice of an illegitimate descendant of Sancho the Great would undoubtedly have aroused the opposition of the Papacy to the succession.

    Ramiro did succeed Alfonso in Aragon, because the nobles refused to enact the late king's unusual will. His accession did raise protest from Rome and was not uncontested within Aragon, much less in Navarre, where Gara was the chosen candidate once the testament of Alfonso was laid aside. Rome does not seem to have opposed him, but neither does he seem to have had much support within Aragon, while Ramiro strongly objected to his election in Navarre. In light of this, the Bishop of Pamplona granted Garca his church's treasure to fund his government against Ramiro's pretensions. Among Garcas other early supporters were Lop Ennechones, Martinus de Leit, and Count Latro, who carried out negotiations on the king's behalf with Ramiro. Eventually, however, the two monarchs reached a mutual accord. the Pact of Vadoluongo  of "adoption" in January 1135: Garca was deemed the "son" and Ramiro the "father" in an attempt to maintain both the independence of each kingdom and the de facto supremacy of the Aragonese one.

    In May 1135, Garcia declared himself a vassal of Alfonso VII. This simultaneously put him under the protection and lordship of Castile and bought recognition of his royal status from Alfonso, who was a claimant to the Battler's succession. Garca's submission to Castile has been seen as an act of protection for Navarre which had the consequence of putting her in an offensive alliance against Aragon, which thus forced Ramiro to marry, to forge an alliance with Raymond Berengar IV of Barcelona and to produce an heir, now that Garca, his adoptive son, was out of the question. On the other hand, Garca may have been responding to Ramiro's marriage, which proved beyond a doubt that the king of Aragon was seeking another heir than his distant relative and adopted son.

    Before September 1135, Alfonso VII granted Garca Zaragoza as a fief. Recently conquered from Aragon, this outpost of Castilian authority in the east was clearly beyond the military capacity of Alfonso to control and provided further reasons for recognition of Garca in Navarre in return for not only his homage, but his holding Zaragoza on behalf of Castile. In 1136, Alfons was forced to do homage for Zaragoza to Ramiro and to recognise him as King of Zaragoza. In 1137, Zaragoza was surrendered to Raymond Berengar, though Alfonso retained suzerainty over it. By then, Garcia's reign in Zaragoza had closed.

    Sometime after 1130, but before his succession, Garca married Marguerite de l'Aigle. She was to bear him a son and successor, Sancho VI, as well as two daughters who each married kings: the elder, Blanca, born after 1133, married Sancho III of Castile, while the younger, Margaret, named after her mother, married William I of Sicily. Garca's relationship with his first queen was, however, shaky. She took on many lovers and showed favouritism to her French relatives. She bore a second son named Rodrigo, whom her husband refused to recognise as his own.[8] On 24 June 1144, in Len, Garca married Urraca, illegitimate daughter of Alfonso VII and Guntroda Prez, to strengthen his relationship with his overlord.

    In 1136, Garca was obliged to surrender Rioja to Castile but, in 1137, he allied with Alfonso I of Portugal and confronted Alfonso VII. They confirmed a peace between 1139 and 1140. He was thereafter an ally of Castile in the Reconquista and was instrumental in the conquest of Almera in 1147. In 1146, he occupied Tauste, which belonged to Aragon, and Alfonso VII intervened to mediate a peace between the two kingdoms.

    By his marriage to Urraca, Garca had also become a brother-in-law of Raymond Berengar IV, with whom he confirmed a peace treaty in 1149. The count was promised to Garca's daughter Blanca while already engaged to Petronilla of Aragon, but Garca died before the marriage could be carried out.Garca died on 12 November 1150 in Lorca, near Estella, and was buried in the cathedral of Santa Maria in Pamplona. He was succeeded by his eldest son. He left one daughter by Urraca: Sancha, who married Gaston V of Barn. He left a widow in the person of his third wife, Ganfreda LĂ pez.
    Garca left, as the primary monument of his reign, the monastery of Sant Maria de La Oliva in Carcastillo. It is a fine example of Romanesque architecture.
    (Wikipedia)
    From Encyclopedia Britannica Online, article titled "Garcia IV (or V):"

    "byname GARCâIA THE RESTORER, Spanish GARCâIA EL RESTAURADOR, king of Pamplona (Navarre) from 1134 to 1150, grandson of Sancho IV and son of El Cid's daughter Cristina and Ramiro Sâanchez, lord of Monzâon.

    "When Alfonso I of Aragon and Navarre died in 1134 and the Aragonese proclaimed the succession for his brother Ramiro II, the Navarrese rebelled and restored their own ancient line in the person of Garcâia Ramirez. Garcâia IV broke the union of Aragon and Navarre by declaring himself a vassal of Alfonso VII of Castile, "emperor" of Spain, but a year later he broke with Castile and allied himself with the Portuguese against Castile and Aragon. After Ramiro's abdication (1137), there ensued a period of warfare and intrigue among the kingdoms of Spain, ending in 1149. In spite of these wars Garcâia IV collaborated with Alfonso VII against the Muslim Almohads and took part in the conquest of Almeria (1147). On his death, he was succeeded by his son Sancho VI."
