FORTUN Garces, King of Pamplona, and Oria

FORTUN Garces, King of Pamplona from 882 to 905. (Arabic: Fortoûn ibn Garsiya). (the One-Eyed; Arabic: al-Anqar) (the Monk). [Familytree].
Son of GARCIA Íñiguez, King of Pamplona.

He was the eldest son of King García Íñiguez, himself the son of king Íñigo Íñiguez Arista, the founder of the kingdom, and Fortún was to be the last king of the Arista dynasty. (S3).

Prince Fortún was taken prisoner by the Moors in 860 during the invasion of Emir Mohammed I of Córdoba and kept for the next 20 years. While a prisoner in Córdoba, his daughter Onneca Fortúnez married Abdallah ibn Mohammed, who would later succeed his father as Emir. He was released from captivity in 880 and returned to Pamplona, apparently accompanied by his daughter. He succeeded upon the death of his father at Ayhar in 882 in a battle against Emir Mohammed I. (S3).

Little is known of the remainder of his reign except the manner of its ending. In 905, an alliance of King Alfonso III of Asturias, and count Raymond I of Pallars brought about a successful coup in favor of the latter's nephew, Sancho Garcés, son of García Jiménez of "another part of the kingdom", forcing Fortún to retire as a monk to Leyre. (S3).

Fortun Garces died after 925. (S3).

Oria. [Chart A11].
Daughter of Lupo (Lubb) ibn Musa and Ayab al Bulatiya. (S4).
