Part 2 - "The traditional derivation of Vermudo II has been as son of Ordono III, but from time to time a scholar will argue that his father was instead Ordono IV.

Not so. A published charter has come to my attention that makes the relationship explicit. A royal charter in the Cartulary of Santa Maria de Carracedo, issued by Vermudo, refers to "patris mei domini Hordonii, . . . quod avus noster dominus Ranemirus. . . .", so there it is Vermudo (II) was son of Ordono (III), son of Ramiro (II). This allows us to dismiss the alternative descent, and the various implications that would flow from it. taf"

You have the correct lineage here but no real documentation and as mentioned in the post here the is doubt about parentage, but this should resolve it - "taf via

10:34 PM (8 hours ago) to gen-medieval I have previously raised the issue here of the paternity of Vermudo II. He is known from chronicles and contemporary documents as the son of king Ordono. The problem is that there were two kings of that name in the preceding generation, Ordono III, son of king Ramiro II, and Ordono IV, son of king Alfonso (usually identified with Alfonso IV, brother of Ramiro II, both being sons of Ordono II, although a minority opinion would make Ordono IV the son of Alfonso Fruelaz, son of Fruela II and briefly king or anti-king in opposition to the sons of Ordono II). see pt.2
