Queen of Navarre. Born the illegitimate daughter of Alfonso VII of Castile and his mistress, Guntrodo Perez. She was raised and educated by her paternal aunt, Dona Sancha. In about 1144, she became the second wife of García of Navarre, the grandson of Rodrigo Diaz, better known as El Cid. By marriage to Urraca, García became a brother-in-law to Raymond Berengar IV, with whom he confirmed a peace treaty in 1149. The couple had one daughter. After she was widowed in 1150, she married Alvaro Rodriguez about 1163. The couple apparently retired to Palencia, where she died at about age 56.
