Count of Barcelona Ramon II Berenguer succeeded his father, Ramon Berenguer I, Count of Barcelona, as co-ruler with his twin brother, Berenguer Ramon, in 1075. The twins failed to agree and against the will of their late father, they divided their possessions between them. Ramon Berenguer the Towhead, called so because of the thickness and colour of his hair, was killed while hunting in the woods in 1082. His twin, Berenguer Ramon II, the Fratricide became the sole ruler of Catalonia for the next four years. Berenguer Ramon II, was credited by popular opinion of having orchestrated this murder. This suspicion and other divisions of loyalty led to a civil war. Various parties asserted ways to resolve this 'unjust and iniquitous murder', which led to a moderate compromise in 1086 in which Berenguer Ramon II would rule Catalonia with his brother's four-year-old son (Later to become known as Ramon Berenguer III, Count of Barcelona for eleven years until he came of age. . He became the sole ruler in 1097, when Berenguer Ramon II was forced into exile. (bio by: Audrey DeCamp Hoffman)
