Miro, Count of Barcelona
When his father stood down in 947 he became governor jointly with his brother Borrell II, Count of Barcelona. Borrell took charge of military and foreign affairs and Miro took charge of domestic affairs.
Miro made donations to the monasteries of San Cugat del Vallés, San Juan de las Abadesas y Ripoll, and during his reign it is believed that he began construction of the Rec Comtal, which took water to Barcelona.
