Sancho Ramírez of Viguera


Sancho Ramírez of Viguera

Sancho Ramírez (died 1002 or shortly after) was the second King of Viguera from 991 or earlier until his death. He was the son and successor of Ramiro Garcés. Following the death of his father, he appears in documents with his uncle Sancho II Garcés and his brother García Ramírez. His death is commonly estimated at about 999, but a recently published document shows him still living in 1002. In that year, between the last appearance of García Sánchez II of Pamplona in 1000 and the first appearance of Sancho III of Navarre in 1004, he appears as king in a context that suggests a greated domain than simply Viguera. It has been used to suggest that Sancho Ramírez served briefly as ruler of Pamplona itself in the same manner that Jimeno Garcés of Pamplona had ruled during the youth of García Sánchez I. This 1002 document is the last in which he is found, and he is presumed to have died shortly thereafter.

A Sancha Sánchez appears in Pamplona royal charters in a position of importance, and has been speculated to be his daughter, but her fate is unknown.
