Individual Note

Andregoto Galíndez (literally Lady Goto Galíndez, from Basque title andre) was daughter of Count Galindo II Aznárez Count of Aragon from 922, being by his second wife, Sancha Garcés of Pamplona. She is frequently referred to as Countess, and made heiress to her father, yet she was not the eldest daughter of her father, and likewise Aragon had already been absorbed into the Kingdom of Pamplona by Sancho I of Pamplona, years before her marriage to that king's son, García Sánchez I. Prior to 940, García divorced Andregoto due to consanguinity, the two being half-first-cousins. They left a sole son, Sancho II of Pamplona, and may also have had two daughters, Toda who appears in 991 as sister of king Sancho, and Urraca, wife successively of Fernán González of Castile and William Sancho of Gascony.[1] It has been suggested that Andregoto remarried and had further children, although the details have not been discovered. Endregota, wife of 11th century count Sancho Maceratiz, calls herself a descendant of Andregoto Galíndez, but Ubieto Arteta suggests the later countess descended from her sister Velasquita Galíndez.

1 Urraca is commonly given as daughter by García's second wife, but Gonzalo Martínez Díez in Sancho III el Mayor: rey de Pamplona, Rex Ibericus makes her daughter of Andregoto. Traditional chronology would require this to have been otherwise, as Urraca, duchess of Gascony, died in 1041. However, while still showing Urraca as daughter of Teresa, Jaime de Salazar y Acha shows that Urraca died by 1008, and concludes the 1041 decedent was instead Urraca Sánchez, daughter of Sancho García of Castile and widow of count Sancho William of Gascony, son of Urraca Garcés and William Sancho. While this would thereby allow the Martínez Díez reconstruction, Urraca still married Fernán González between 961 and 964, more than two decades after Andregoto's divorce.
