RAMON BERENGUER III 1097-1131, RAMON BERENGUER IV 1131-1162
 
RAMON BERENGUER [III] "el Grande" de Barcelona, son of RAMON BERENGUER [II] "Cap d'Estopes" Comte de Barcelona & his wife Mathilde di Apulia (11 Nov 1082-19 Jul 1131, bur Ripoll Monastery).  The Inquisitio circa comitatum Carcassonænames "Raimundus-Berengarii" as the son of "Raimundo-Berengarii…Cap-de-Stopes", specifying that he was born "in festo S Martini"[390].  He succeeded his uncle in [1097] as Comte de Barcelona, Girona, i Osona.  “Raymundus BerengariiBarchinonensis comes et marchio” donated property to the bishopric of Barcelona by charter dated 26 Jan 1108[391].   Ramon Berenguer and his mother Mahalta issued a charter dated 6 Jun 1112[392].  He continued his predecessors'policy of territorial expansion, becoming Comte de Besalú following the death of his son-in-law in 1111, Comte de Provence by right of his third wife in 1113, conquering Mallorca from the Moors 1114-1115 (although he lost thelatter shortly afterwards), and Comte de Cerdanya in 1117.  Bernard Atton [IV] d'Albi Vicomte de Carcassonne swore homage to him in 1112.  “Raymundus Berengarii…comes Barchinonæ” donated “monasterium…sancti Petri de Gallicant” inGirona to “monasterio Crassensi”, on the advice of “Geraldi Pontii vicecomitis Gerundensis…”, by charter dated 20 Jan 1117, subscribed by “Raimundi comitis Barchinonensis, Raimundi Berengerii, Berengerii et Bernardi filiorum eius,Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius…”[393].  The restoration of Tarragona began in 1118, the Pope designating Oleguer Bishop of Barcelona as archbishop of Tarragona.  Ramon Berenguer [III] signed a treaty of partition with the comte deToulouse in 1125 concerning the territories in France.  He supervised the formulation of the feudal code which later became known as the Usatges, the first full compilation of feudal law in any west European state[394].  During hisreign, the county of Barcelona became a papal fief[395].  The testament of "Raimundus Berengarii…Barchinonensis comes et marchio" dated [8 Jul] 1130 names "Aimericum fratrem meum" as one of his manumissores and names "RaimundoBerengarii filio meo…et filie mee ipsa de Castella et illa de Fuxo"[396].  The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium records the death of "Raimundi-Berengarii comitis" in 1131 and his burial at "Rivipullense…Monasterium"[397]. 
m firstly (before 1103) [as her second husband,] MARÍA [Sol] Rodríguez, [widow of Infante don PEDRO de Aragón y Navarra,] daughter of RODRIGO Díaz de Vivar "el Cid Campeador" & his wife Jimena Díaz (-[4 Aug 1104/before 1 Nov1106]).  The "Corónicas" Navarras name "dona Cristiana…dona Maria" as the two daughters of "este meo Çid" and his wife, stating that María married "el conte de Barçalona"[398].  The primary source which confirms her supposed firstmarriage has not yet been identified, but the date of death of her supposed first husband appears incompatible with the date of the first charter in which she appears with her [second] husband.  Unless further primary sourceinformation comes to light, María´s supposed first marriage should be treated with caution.  Ramon Berenguer and his wife Maria granted property to a vassal by charter dated 1103[399].  Ramon Berenguer and his wife Maria donatedproperty to the church of San Adrian "inmediata al rio Besós" by charter dated 4 Aug 1104[400]. 
m secondly (before 1 Nov 1106) ALMODIS, daughter of --- (-[23 Nov 1111/3 Feb 1112]).  "Raymundus comes Barchinonensis" donated all that he had captured at Balagario to "uxori mea Almodis et filiis quos de ea habuero" by charterdated 1 Nov 1106[401].  Her parentage is not known.  A charter dated 26 Sep 1110 records that Ramon Berenguer was still childless by his marriage at that date[402].  "Raimundis Berengarii…marchio Barchionensium, princepsAusonensium, comes vero Gerundensium atque Bisullunensium" donated property "ecclesiam Sancte Marie intra muros Bisullunensis" to Valence Saint-Rufus by charter dated 23 Nov 1111, signed by "Raimundi comitis, Meltiscomitisse"[403]. 
m thirdly (3 Feb 1112) DULCE [Dolça] [I] Ctss de Provence Vicomtesse de Milhaud, de Gevaudan, et de Rodez, daughter of GIRBERT de Gévaudan Vicomte de Milhaud & his wife Gerberge Ctss de Provence (-[28 Nov 1127/1130]).  The BreviHistoria Comitum Provinciæ records that "Gilberto comite Provinciæ" left his widow "Tiburgia…comitissa" and "Dulcia unica filia" and notes the latter's marriage to "Raymundus-Berengarii vulgo Cap-De stoupes…dictus, Comes Barcinonæin Catalonia"[404].  Her parentage is confirmed by the Vita Sancti Ollegarii which names “Raymundum comitem Barchinonensem filium filiæ Roberti Guisardi principis Apuliæ” and “Dulcia comitissa Provinciæ uxor comitis”[405].  "Raymondi comes Barchinonensis, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius, Raimundi et Berengarii filiorum suorum…" subscribed the charter dated [4/12] Feb 1114 under which "Bernardus Wilelmi…comes Ceritaniensis" donated property to the abbeyof la Grasse[406].  “Raymundus Berengarii…comes Barchinonæ” donated “monasterium…sancti Petri de Gallicant” in Girona to “monasterio Crassensi” by charter dated 20 Jan 1117, subscribed by “Raimundi comitis Barchinonensis, RaimundiBerengerii, Berengerii et Bernardi filiorum eius, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius…”[407].  "Dultie comitisse" signed a charter of "domni Raimundi…comitis et marchionis Burchinone et Provintie" dated 7 Mar 1125[408].  Comte RamonBergenguer [III] and his wife Dulce signed a commercial agreement with the Genoese dated 28 Nov 1127[409]. 

Comte Ramon Berenguer [III] & his first wife had one child:

1.         --- de Barcelona ([1105/06]-[before 1112]).  The marriage contract of "Raymundus...Barchinonensis comes et marchio...filiam meam prolem Mariæ Ruderici" and “Bernarde Bisuldunensis comes” is dated 1 Oct 1107 and provides“Ausonensem comitatum” as dowry[410].  Secondary sources usually show this daughter as having married Roger [III] Comte de Foix as her second husband.  For the reasons explained below, it is more likely that Comte Roger´s wife wasa different daughter, born from her father´s third marriage.  Bofarull suggests that this unnamed daughter must have predeceased her husband, which justified her father taking the county of Besalú on the death of Comte Bernat[III][411].  m (contract 1 Oct 1107) BERNAT [III] Comte de Besalú i Ripoll, son of GUILLÉM [II] "Trunus" Comte de Besalú i Ripoll & his wife Etiennette de Provence (-[1111/12]). 

Comte Ramon Berenguer [III] & his third wife had [eight] children:

2.         RAMON BERENGUER [IV] de Barcelona (1113-San Dalmacio near Turin 6 Aug 1162, bur Monastery of Santa María de Ripoll).  "Raymondi comes Barchinonensis, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius, Raimundi et Berengarii filiorum suorum…"subscribed the charter dated [4/12] Feb 1114 under which "Bernardus Wilelmi…comes Ceritaniensis" donated property to the abbey of la Grasse[412].  “Raymundus Berengarii…comes Barchinonæ” donated “monasterium…sancti Petri deGallicant” in Girona to “monasterio Crassensi” by charter dated 20 Jan 1117, subscribed by “Raimundi comitis Barchinonensis, Raimundi Berengerii, Berengerii et Bernardi filiorum eius, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius…”[413].  Thetestament of "Raimundus Berengarii…Barchinonensis comes et marchio" dated [8 Jul] 1130 names "Raimundo Berengarii filio meo…"[414].  He succeeded his father in 1131 as Comte de Barcelona, Cerdanya, Besalú, Girona i Osona. Barcelona's territorial stability was threatened by Aragonese advances on Lérida and Tortosa, cut short by the death of Alfonso I King of Aragon in 1134.  His marriage eventually united the county of Barcelona and the kingdom ofAragon under a single ruler, although the two territories retained their separate political identities.  m (Barbastro 11 Aug 1137, consummated early 1151) Infanta doña PETRONILA de Aragón, daughter of RAMIRO II "el Monje" King ofAragon & his wife Agnès d’Aquitaine ([Jul] 1136-Barcelona 17 Oct 1174, bur Barcelona, Church of the Holy Cross and Santa Eulalia).  The Brevi Historia Comitum Provinciæ records the marriage of "Berengarius primogenitus filius…" of"Raymundus-Berengarii vulgo Cap-De stoupes…dictus, Comes Barcinonæ in Catalonia" & his wife and "Petronillæ filiæ Ranemiri primo monachi…Aragonum regis"[415]. 


3.         BERENGUER RAMON de Barcelona ([Dec 1113/Jan 1114]-murdered Melgueil Mar 1144).  "Raymondi comes Barchinonensis, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius, Raimundi et Berengarii filiorum suorum…" subscribed the charter dated [4/12]Feb 1114 under which "Bernardus Wilelmi…comes Ceritaniensis" donated property to the abbey of la Grasse[416], which must place the birth of Berenguer Ramon in late 1113 or early 1114, assuming that the charter is correctly dated. “Raymundus Berengarii…comes Barchinonæ” donated “monasterium…sancti Petri de Gallicant” in Girona to “monasterio Crassensi” by charter dated 20 Jan 1117, subscribed by “Raimundi comitis Barchinonensis, Raimundi Berengerii,Berengerii et Bernardi filiorum eius, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius…”[417].  He succeeded his father in 1131 as Comte de Provence, Vicomte de Rodez, de Gévaudan et de Carladet.  The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium records that "fratresuo [=Raimundi Berengarii quarti] Berengario-Raimundi Provinciæ Comite" who ruled the county of Provence was killed by pirates "in portu Malguriensi"[418]. 


4.         BERNAT de Barcelona ([1115/16]-after 20 Jan 1117).  “Raymundus Berengarii…comes Barchinonæ” donated “monasterium…sancti Petri de Gallicant” in Girona to “monasterio Crassensi” by charter dated 20 Jan 1117, subscribed by“Raimundi comitis Barchinonensis, Raimundi Berengerii, Berengerii et Bernardi filiorum eius, Dulciæ comitissæ uxoris eius…”[419]. 

5.         BERENGUELA de Barcelona ([1116]-Palencia 15/31 Jan 1149, bur Santiago de Compostela, Cathedral Santiago el Mayor).  The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records the marriage of "Alfonso…king of León" and "the daughter ofRamón Conde de Barcelona…Berengaria" in 1128 at Saldaña[420].  The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium record the marriage of "Raimundi-Berengarii comitis…filiam" and "Ildefonso Toletano Imperatori"[421].  The De Rebus Hispaniæ ofRodericus Ximenes names "Berengariam atque Richam" as the wives of "Aldefonsi Hispaniarum Regis"[422].  The testament of "Raimundus Berengarii…Barchinonensis comes et marchio" dated [8 Jul] 1130 names "Raimundo Berengarii filiomeo…et filie mee ipsa de Castella et illa de Fuxo"[423].  m (Saldaña Nov 1128) as his first wife, ALFONSO VII "el Emperador" King of Castile and León, son of RAIMOND de Bourgogne [Comté] Comte d’Amous Conde de Galicia & his wifeUrraca Queen of Castile and León ([Grajal], Galicia 1 Mar 1105-Fresneda 21 Aug 1157, bur Toledo, Cathedral of Santa María).

6.         JIMENA de Barcelona ([1117/18]-after 1136).  The testament of "Raimundus Berengarii…Barchinonensis comes et marchio" dated [8 Jul] 1130 names "Raimundo Berengarii filio meo…et filie mee ipsa de Castella et illa deFuxo"[424].  Her name is more recognisably reproduced in the charter dated Nov 1149 of her son "Roggerus-Bernardi comes Fuxensis, filius Roggerii et Xaminiæ"[425].  In most secondary sources, Jimena is shown as the daughter of herfather´s first marriage and widow of Bernat [III] Conde de Besalú.  However, no primary source has yet been identified which confirms that this is correct and several reasons point to it being unlikely.  Firstly, if Jimena had beenthe widow of the last comte de Besalú, her second husband would presumably have had the right to claim the county in her name, and there appears to be no indication that he ever did this.  Secondly, the testament of her fathernames "filie mee…illa de Fuxo" after his daughter "ipsa de Castella".  This would normally indicate that the former was younger than the latter.  The only possible reason for reversing the order of his daughters would have been thesupposed precedence of the queen of Castile over the comtesse de Foix.  However, no other example of this adjustment to the order of names in primary source documents has been found, except those justified by the supposedprecedence of children holding ecclesiastical office over lay children.  Thirdly, Jimena would have named her daughter after her own mother.  Fourthly, the dates of marriage of Jimena´s two known children, in the 1150s, suggestthat they were born in the 1130s, which is not inconsistent with Jimena having been born from her father´s third marriage.  This appears to be corroborated by the charter dated 26 Oct 1136 by which “Rogerius comes Fuxensis [et]Essena coniux ipsius” founded the commanderie of Ville-Dieu which refers to "infantes nostros"[426].  The date of the marriage of Comte Roger´s daughter Bradimène is inconsistent with this hypothesis, unless she was born from anotherwise unrecorded earlier marriage, or was illegitimate, as is proposed in the document TOULOUSE NOBILITY.  The only factor which appears to indicate the co-identity of the two daughters is that Jimena could have been namedafter her maternal grandmother, mother of her father´s first wife.  However, the name was not uncommon in Spain at the time, and it is quite possible that Jimena was named after another relative.  Until further primary source dataemerges which contradicts this hypothesis, it has been decided to show Jimena has her father´s daughter by his third marriage in this document.  m (before [8 Jul] 1130) ROGER [III] Comte de Foix, son of ROGER [II] Comte de Foix &his second wife Estefanía de Besalú (-[1147/48]).   

7.         [ESTEFANIA de Barcelona ([1118]-).  The primary source which confirms her parentage and two marriages has not yet been identified.  She is not named as one of the daughters of Comte Ramon Berenguer [III] byBofarull[427].  m firstly (1128) as his second wife, CENTULE [II] Comte de Bigorre, son of BERNARD [III] Comte de Bigorre & his wife Adalmur [Azelma] de Fezensac (-[1128/30]).  m secondly ([1130]) RAYMOND ARNAUD [II] Vicomte deDax, son of ARNAUD [Dat] [Seigneur de Mixe] & his wife Guirelda Vicomtesse de Dax (-[1167]).] 

8.         MAHALTA de Barcelona.  Ramon Berenguer granted his unmarried daughter Mahalta "todo el honor que poseia desde Terrads hasta el rio Tec y Paladda", by charter dated 8 Jul 1130[428].  same person as…?  MAHALTA .  Bofarullsuggests that she and her husband could be identified with "Guillelmo de Castellvell y su muger Mahalta" who sold half of "los mansos Curvera y Torre-Dala sitos en…el término de Castellvell" by charter dated 25 Jan 1131, given theshort time which elapsed after the grant of her dowry and the fact that Guillem de Castellvell subscribed numerous charters of Comte Ramon Berenguer IV and his son King Alfonso II[429].  m GUILLEM [IV] Señor de Castellvell(-[1166]). 

9.         ALMODIS de Barcelona ([1126]-after 14 Mar 1175).  Ponce de Cevera abducted a daughter of Ramon Bergenguer [III] from the comital palace in Barcelona, in 1148 and married her[430].  Ponce de Cevera and his wife Adalmuzdonated property to the Templarios by charter dated 15 Mar 1148[431].  "Almodis vicecomitissa Bassensis" freed serfs, for the soul of "mariti mei Pontii de Cervaria" and with the consent of "omnium filiorum meorum", by charterdated 19 Nov 1154, subscribed by "Ugoni filii eius, Poncii filii eius, Berengarii filii eius…"[432].  “Adalmus soror comes Barchinonensis...cum filiis meis Ugo et Poncius et Raimundus de Torrea Rubea genere meo et coniux eius Gaiafilia mea” donated “alaudio infra terminos de Espulga de Tallad” to the monastery of Valldemaria by charter dated 28 Feb 1164[433].  "Ugo vicecomes de Bas" sold "vegeriam de Basso" to "Berengario de Puig Pardines et Raimundo patrituo", with the consent of "Poncii fratris mei et Adalmus comitisse matris mee", by charter dated 14 Mar 1175, signed by "Ugonis vicecomitis de Bas, Poncii fratris eius, Adalmurs comitisse matris eorum…"[434].  m (1148) [as hissecond wife,] PONCE [II] de Cervera Vescomte de Bas, son of PONCE [I] de Cevera & his wife Beatriz de Besalú Vescomtesa de Bas (-before 19 Nov 1155).

Ramon Berenguer III, Count of Barcelona

Ramon Berenguer III the Great was the count of Barcelona, Girona, and Osona from 1082 (jointly with Berenguer Ramon II and solely from 1097), Besalú from 1111, Cerdanya from 1117, and Provence, in the Holy Roman Empire, from 1112,all until his death in Barcelona in 1131. As Ramon Berenguer I, he was Count of Provence from 1112 in right of his wife.

Born in 1082 in Rodez, he was the son of Ramon Berenguer II. He succeeded his father to co-rule with his uncle Berenguer Ramon II. He became the sole ruler in 1097, when Berenguer Ramon II was forced into exile,

During his rule Catalan interests were extended on both sides of the Pyrenees. By marriage or vassalage he incorporated into his realm almost all of the Catalan counties (except those of Urgell and Peralada). He inherited thecounties of Besalú (1111) and Cerdanya (1117) and in between married Douce, heiress of Provence (1112). His dominions then stretched as far east as Nice.

In alliance with the Count of Urgell, Ramon Berenguer conquered Barbastro and Balaguer. In 1118 he captured and rebuilt Tarragona, which became the metropolitan seat of the church in Catalonia (before that, Catalans had dependedecclesiastically on the archbishopric of Narbonne). He also established relations with the Italian maritime republics of Pisa and Genoa and in 1114 and 1115 raided with them the Moorish pirate strongholds of Majorca and Ibiza. Theybecame his tributaries and many Christian slaves there were recovered and set free. Ramon Berenguer also raided mainland Muslim dependencies with Pisa's help, such as Valencia, Lleida and Tortosa.

Toward the end of his life Ramon Berenguer became a Templar. He gave his five Catalonian counties to his eldest son Ramon Berenguer IV and Provence to the younger son Berenguer Ramon.
