Individual Note

Mayor of Castile (died 1032 or after 1066) was queen of Navarre. She was originally called Muniadona (or Muñadona) and is variously called Munia (or MuñaMayor (or just Munia or Muña). In Spanish, she is called Muniadona de Castilla. It is said that her husband Sancho III of Navarre (Sancho the Great) renamed her from her contemporary name Muniadona to Mayor,for she was the eldest in her family, yet since she had an aunt of the same name, the story is clearly apocryphal. She was the daughter of CountSancho García of Castile. Her marriage to Sancho made her Queen consort of Navarre.

In 1029, the Count García Sánchez of Castile, Mayor's brother, was assassinated by the Vela family, Castilian exiles in León. Mayor's husband, Sancho the Great, claimed his role as feudal overlord to pass the county to their second son, Ferdinand. Likewise this brought a nominal legitimate claim to the counties of Ribagorza and Sobrarbe to her husband, who had already taken control of them militarily.

Mayor was the mother of four sons and perhaps two daughters:
