Royalty. Sancho Ramírez was King of Aragon and King of Navarre. He was the son of Ramiro I of Aragon and Ermesinda of Bigorre, and he succeeded his father in 1063. He died in 1094 at the battle of Huesca, supposedly from an arrow while inspecting the walls of the Muslim stronghold. Sancho contracted his first marriage in c.1065, to Isabel (died c.1071), daughter of Count Armengol III of Urgel. They were divorced 1071. His second marriage, in 1076, was with Felicia (died 3 May 1123), daughter of Count Hilduin III of Roucy. He was father of four sons: by Isabel, he had Peter, his successor; by Felicia he had Ferdinand, who was alive in 1086 but died within the next decade, Alfonso, who succeeded Peter, and Ramiro, who succeeded Alfonso.
