Ramon Berenguer, I
Birth: 1024
Death: May 27, 1076, Spain

Catalonian Monarch. He was the Count of Barcelona from 1035 to 1076. He succeeded his father, Berenguer Ramon the Crooked in 1035. It is during his reign that the dominant position of Barcelona among other Catalan counties became evident. Ramon Berenguer campaigned against the Moors. During his reign Catalan maritime power started to be felt in the Western Mediterranean. He was also the first count of Catalonia to acquire lands (counties of Carcassonne and RazÚs) and influence north of the Pyrenees. He also published the earliest versions of a written code of Catalan law which became the first full compilation of feudal law in Western Europe. He was succeeded by his twin sons. (bio by: Bunny Boiler)
