Saracens.162 Arnau, bishop of Vic; Oto, bishop of Barcelona; and Oto, bishop of Girona, as well as many nobles and barons, went with him. Among them was his brother Ermengol. Ermengol died in battle against the Moors, like a brave knight, in the Year of Our Lord 1002 [ sic ]. Because in this war he defeated an opponent in single combat, he was surnamed Ermengol of Córdoba. One of his surviving sons, named Ermengol [II, 1010-1038 ], succeeded him in the county of Urgell Barcelona [ sic ]. After some days had passed, Count Borrell returned honorably and unharmed from the war.

At that time, Bernat Trencaferre was count of Besalú [ 988-1020 ]. He was given this surname ["Iron-cutter"] because he was extremely strong and active. The count of Cerdanya was his brother, Guifred [II, 990-1050 ], who built the monastery of Sant Martí de Canigó, which he endowed with many notable possessions. Guifred fathered five sons from his wife: the first was named Ramón Guifred, who succeeded to the county of Cerdanya [ 1050-1068 ] after the death of his father; the second was Guifred Guifred, who was archbishop of Narbonne; the third, Berenguer, was bishop of Girona; the fourth, Guillem Guifred, was bishop of Urgell; and the fifth Bernat Guifred, was count of Berguedá.

Count Ramón Borrell of Barcelona held his county for twenty-five years, and left this world in his fifties in the Year of Our Lord 1017.163 He was buried in the monastery of [lacuna].164 One son, named Berenguer, survived him.


Chapter 28
COUNT BERENGUER [RAMóN I, 1017-1035]

Count Ramón Borrell's son, Berenguer, was his heir and successor in the county of Barcelona. In Berenguer's time, in an unfortunate accident, Bernat Trencaferre fell into the river while crossing the Rhone and died in the Year of Our Lord 1020. His body was carried to the monastery of Ripoll and was buried there. He ruled his county for thirty-one years [ 988-1020 ] and fathered from his wife one son, called Guillem Bernat Gras, who was instated in Besalú as his heir [ 1020-1052 ].

Also in the time of Count Berenguer of Barcelona, Count Guifred of Cerdanya died, in the Year of Our Lord 1025.165 He had ruled his lands for thirty-five years and was interred in the monastery of Sant Martí de Canigó, which he had built.
