    • Count in Aguilar.

      "Martin Flainez, also recorded as Martin Alfonso Osorio, was the son of conde Flain Fernández and his second wife Toda Fernández. He was one of the most powerful members of the nobility of León during the reign of Alfonso VI 'the Brave,' king of Castile and León. His first mention in medieval sources was in May 1065 when he participated with his mother Toda and his brother Fernando in a donation to the cathedral of León. His brother Fernando was banished and their property confiscated for rebelling against the king in 1078, and Martin, who became count in 1081, became responsible for restoring the fortunes of his family. He ruled as the king's tenente (consul) of the tenencias of Simancas and Cabezon in 1092, of Aguilar between 1094 and 1107, and of the city of León in 1104." [Leo van de Pas]

      "According to Lucas de Tuy, writing his Chronicon mundi over a hundred years later, Martín was a victim of the Battle of Uclés in May 1108. A charter of the monastery of Sahagún dated 17 November 1108 cites Martín as still living, although it may contain an error in the dating clause. There is no other reference to Martín later than 31 March 1108." [Wikipedia]
