Galindo Aznárez II (died 922) was Count of Aragon (893 – 922), the son of Aznar Galíndez II and his wife Onneca Garcés, daughter of King García Íñiguez of Pamplona.[1]


Galindo succeeded his father as count of Aragon. In 905 he was part of a coalition that sponsored a coup d'état in Pamplona in favor of his brother-in-law, Sancho I, that overthrew the ruling Íñiguez dynasty which was replaced by the Jimena dynasty, another branch that was more favorable to the interests of Aragon. However, he turned on this new king and in 911 attacked him in concert with brother-in-law Muhammad al-Tawil and Abd Allah ibn Lubb ibn Qasi. This coalition was defeated, al-Tawil killed, and Galindo forced to become vassal of Sancho.

Marriages and issue[edit]

Galindo was married twice. By his first wife, Acibella,[2] daughter of Count García II Sánchez of Gascony,[3] and his wife Amuna of Perigord, he had three children:

  • Toda Galíndez, married to Bernat I, Count of Ribagorza,[4] to whom she brought Sobrarbe.
  • Redemptus Galíndez, bishop.[3]
  • Mirón Galíndez.[3] Probably died before his father since, being a legitimate son, he did not inherit the county.

By his second wife, Sancha Garcés of Pamplona, daughter of García Jiménez and Onneca Rebelle of Sangüesa and sister of Sancho I, he had:

Galindo also sired several illegitimate sons: Guntislo, Sancho, Belasco, Banzo — father of a Galindo—[7] and Aznar.[8]
