  • Notes 
    • First count of Saldaña.

      From Spanish-language Wikipedia (translated by Google, cleaned up by PNH):

      Diego Muñoz, in Latin Didacus Munnioz, magnate of Palencia, original member of the Banu Gómez family, was the first count of Saldaña.

      He was one of the most important figures of the Kingdom of Leon in the first half of the tenth century. He managed to consolidate family power thanks to an intelligent marriage policy, to distance himself from and yet stay in accord with the monarch Ramiro I, and to establish a power base for his family, the Banu Gómez, who according to the Arab historian Ibn Khaldun: "reigned in the country which extends between Zamora and Castile."

      It can be said that Diego Muñoz achieved almost the same goals as the powerful Count of Castile, Fernán González. [...]
