Biography

Notes

The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium names (in order) "Radulfum, Guiffredum, Mironem et Suniarium" as the four sons of "Guiffredus Pilosus comes" & his wife, specifying that Guifré was killed by poison "sine filio" and was buried "in monasterio Rivipolli." His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 23 Nov 934 under which “Suniarius…comes et Marchio” donated property to the church of Girona, for the souls of “patri meo Wifredi quondam, vel fratri meo Wifredi quondam…” He succeeded his father in 897 as Comte de Barcelona, Girona i Ausona, with nominal superiority over his brothers. He did homage to Charles II “le Simple” King of the Franks in 899. "Wifredo…comite et marchione filii qd. Guidfredi marchione beate memorie" donated property "in castro Cervilione territorio Barch…ultra fluvium Lubricatum" to the monastery of Sant Cugat del Vallés by charter dated 12 Apr 904. "Gotus et uxori mea Columba…" sold properties "in territorio de Puritano in terminio de Pinus" to "Wifredus commes et uxori sue Garesindes" by charter dated 20 Jul 905. A charter dated 18 Nov 908 records the sale of "villa de Palacio" to "domno Wifredo comite hac marchio que vocant Borrello et uxori tue Gersinda." "Wifredus chomes et marchio" donated property "in comitatu Ausona" by charter dated 23 Dec 909. m (before 28 Nov 898) GARSINDE, daughter of --- (-[after 13 May 962]). Wifredo "y su esposa la condesa Garsenda" bought property by charter dated 28 Nov 898[123]. The origin of Garsinde is unknown. Szabolcs de Vajay suggested, for onomastic reasons only, that she may have been Garsinde [de Toulouse, daughter of Odon [Eudes] Comte de Toulouse & his wife Gersende d'Albi]. However, Garsinde/Gersende was such a common name at the time in southern France that this must be only one of numerous possibilities. "Gotus et uxori mea Columba…" sold properties "in territorio de Puritano in terminio de Pinus" to "Wifredus commes et uxori sue Garesindes" by charter dated 20 Jul 905. A charter dated 18 Nov 908 records the sale of "villa de Palacio" to "domno Wifredo comite hac marchio que vocant Borrello et uxori tue Gersinda." "Idelherus epicopus, Geresendes cometissa, Suniarius comes et marchio, Ermemirus vicescomes" signed a document dated 1 Dec 911 as executors of "Vuifredo comite condam filius fuit Vuifredo comite condam." "Garsindis comitissa" sold property to Vic by charter dated 17 Apr 926 which names "viro meo Vuifredo qui vocabulum fuit Borrello".. A charter dated 13 May 962 refers to the testament of "condam Richildis vicecomitissa…de civitate Narbona" which appoints "suos elemosiniarios Gersindis comitissa…", which, if it refers to Riquilda´s mother, indicates that she must have lived to extreme old age. Guifré [II] & his wife had one child: a) RIQUILDA (-before 13 May 962). "Oddo…vicecomes…cum uxore mea…Richelde" donated property inherited from "mei genitoris…Franconis et meæ genitricis…Ersindis", with the consent of "domni Agonis archiepiscopi et Poncii comitis" and for the soul of "senioris mei Poncii comitis", by charter dated 17 Dec 924, signed by "Poncii comitis et marchionis…" Her parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 19 Oct 936 which records a donation by "Richilde vicomtesse fille du comte Borrel et de la comtesse Garsinde." "Vulveradus vicecomes…Widinildis comitissa, Richildis vicecomitissa…" signed the charter dated 28 Sep 926 under which "Teudericus et uxor mea…Sposia" donated property to Narbonne cathedral. A charter dated 1 May 955 records a hearing at Narbonne before "Richildem vicecomitissam." A charter dated 13 May 962 refers to the testament of "condam Richildis vicecomitissa…de civitate Narbona" which appoints "suos elemosiniarios Gersindis comitissa, Matfredo et Adalaiz" and names "Borrello comite consanguineo suo…Odoni viri sui." m (before 17 Dec 924) ODON Vicomte de Narbonne, son of FRANCON Vicomte de Narbonne & his wife --- (-936).
