    • “King Alfonso VI had two illegitimate children by Mistress (1):
      6. doña ELVIRA Alfonso ([1081/82]-after 1151). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Jimena Muñoz" as the first of two concubines of King Alfonso, and their daughters "Elvira the wife of count Raymond of Toulouse…and Teresa the wife of Count Henry". Her birth date is estimated from the birth of her first child "before 1097". "Raimundus…comes et Provincie marchio" donated property to Saint-Victor, Marseille by charter dated 28 Jul 1094, also confirming donations by "Dulcis comitissa", signed by "Alvira comitissa". The bull of Pope Urban II dated 18 Feb 1095 announces that "Raimundus Tolosanus comes…cum uxore sua Hervira et filio Bertranno" abandoned his rights to altar offerings at the monastery of Saint-Gilles. According to Guibert, Comte Raymond left on the First Crusade with his wife and son (both unnamed) "Qui quidem, naturali cuidam filio suo comitatu quem regebat relicto, propriam conjugem cum filio, quem ab ea exegerat, unico secum duxit". She left Palestine after her husband's death, arriving back in Toulouse with her infant son in 1108. Her second marriage is deduced from the charter dated 8 Jul 1117 under which "Fernanz Fernanniz…et uxor mea infanta donna Gelvira filia regis Alfonsi" donated "quartem partem de monasterio de Ferreries…in Gallicia in terra de Lemes juxta Pantonem" to Cluny. On the other hand, Reilly says that doña Elvira, wife of Raymond IV Comte de Toulouse, did not return to Castile until after the death of Queen Urraca. As mentioned above, he maintains that the wife of don Fernando Fernández was Elvira who was the daughter of King Alfonso VI by "Elisabeth". As discussed above, it is more likely that the younger Elvira was the wife of Roger King of Sicily. Canal Sánchez-Pangín concludes that the wife of don Fernando Fernández was indeed the widow of Raymond IV Comte de Toulouse. One difficulty is that Alphonse I Comte de Toulouse, son of Comte Raymond IV and doña Elvira, was declared oof age only in 1121, although it is not known whether his mother acted as regent in Toulouse throughout his minority. m firstly (1094) as his third wife, RAYMOND IV Comte de Toulouse, son of PONS Comte de Toulouse & his second wife Almodis de la Marche (-Mount Pèlerin near Tripoli, Palestine 28 Feb 1105). m secondly (before 8 Jul 1117, separated before 1121) as his first wife, don FERNANDO Fernández, son of ---.
      7.doña TERESA Alfonso ([1083/85]-1 Nov 1130). The Chronicon Regum Legionensium names "Jimena Muñoz" as the first of two concubines of King Alfonso, and their daughters "Elvira the wife of count Raymond of Toulouse…and Teresa the wife of Count HHenry". Her birth date is estimated based on her having given birth to a child by her relationship with don Fernando Pérez de Traba which started in 1124. An early 12th century document at Fleury records that "Ainrico uni filiorum, filio…duciis Roberti" married "alteram filiam…non ex coniugali" of Alfonso VI King of Castile. Regent of Portugal 1112-1123. Queen of Portugal 1113. The Historia Compostelana records that “Fernando Perride, Petris Comitis filio” left his lawful wife annd lived in adultery with “Regina Tarasia”. The Chronica Adefonsi Imperatoris records that Alfonso VII King of Castile met "Teresa queen of the Portuguese and with Count Fernando" at Ricobayo and made peace with them after his accession in 1126.

Señor de Braga [1093], count in Tordesillas 1096/97. He made a mutual pact in [Dec 1094/Jul 1095] with Raymond de Bourgogne, husband of Infanta doña Urraca de Castilla, under which he promised support in securing Castile and León for Raymond in return for a pledge to grant him Toledo (or in default, Galicia. Alfonso VI King of Castile made him a large grant of land, from the Río Miño in the north to Santarem in the south, before 9 Apr 1097, which in effect resulted in hihis installation as HENRIQUE Conde de Portugal. This grant may have been motivated as much by a desire to offset the growing power of his son-in-law, Raymond de Bourgogne, as to increase the power base of Henri de Bourgogne.
