Individual Note

From FMG:

"He succeeded his father in 1076 as RAMÓN BERENGUER II "Cabeza le Estopa/Cap d'Estopes" Conde de Barcelona, Gerona, and Osona, jointly with his brother Berenguer Ramón II. The contacts with Norman Sicily established by his marriagemarked the start of the commercial expansion of Barcelona and the growth of Catalan influence throughout the Mediterranean. His brother conde Berenguer Ramón II quarrelled with him, calling for a division of their territories, andmurdered him."



Ramon Berenguer II, Count of Barcelona

Ramon Berenguer II the Towhead (1053 or 1054 – December 5, 1082) was Count of Barcelona from 1076 until his death. He ruled jointly with his twin brother Berenguer Ramon II.

He succeeded his father Ramon Berenguer I, Count of Barcelona to co-rule with his twin brother Berenguer Ramon, in 1075.
The twins failed to agree and divided their possessions between them, against the will of their late father. Ramon Berenguer the Towhead, called so because of the thickness and colour of his hair, was killed while hunting in thewoods in 1082. His brother, who went on to become the sole ruler of Catalonia, was credited by popular opinion of having orchestrated this murder. Berenguer Ramon the Fratricide was later succeeded by Ramon Berenguer's son RamonBerenguer III.
