Andregoto Galíndez

Andregoto Galíndez (literally Lady Goth, daughter of Galindo, from Basque title andre) was daughter of Count Galindo II Aznárez Count of Aragon 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, and likewise Aragon had already been absorbed into the Kingdom of Pamplona by Sancho I, years before her marriage to that king's son, García Sánchez I.

Prior to 940, García divorced Andregoto, presumably due to consanguinity since the two shared a grandparent. They left a sole son, Sancho II of Pamplona, and García's two daughters may also have been hers: Toda, who is mentioned in 991 as sister of King Sancho, and Urraca, wife successively of Fernán González of Castile and William II Sánchez 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 nobleman Sancho Macerátiz and mother of his son Sancho Sánchez, calls Queen Andregoto avuncula, meaning maternal aunt, or more broadly that Endregota derived from the queen's sister. Ubieto Arteta suggested a descent from Andregoto's full-sister, Velasquita Galíndez.


  1. ^ Urraca is commonly given as daughter by García's second wife. 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 she is typically identified with Urraca, duchess of Gascony, who died in 1041. However, while still showing Urraca as daughter of Teresa, Jaime de Salazar y Acha shows her to have died by 1008, concluding that the Urraca who died in 1041 was instead her daughter-in-law Urraca Sánchez, daughter of Sancho García of Castile and widow of Sancho VI William of Gascony. 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, making Teresa more likely to have been her mother.
