  • Name Ermensinde de Carcassonne 
    Born Abt 972 
    Gender Female 
    History Ermesinde was born about 972, the daughter of Roger I, comte de Carcassonne et de Rasez, and Adelais de Pons. About 990/991 she married Ramon Borrell I, conde de Barcelona, Gerona and Osona, son of Borrell II, conde de Barcelona, and Ledgarde de Toulouse. They had a son and daughter, both of whom would have progeny.

    While her husband lived, Ermesinde was politically active and presided over assemblies and tribunals. After his death in 1018 she became regent for her son Berenguer Ramon I until 1023. After this she continued to wield power. In contrast to her son, she favoured war with the Muslim powers in the South, partly because of the discontent of the nobles at his policy of peace. When he died in 1035 she became regent for her grandson Ramon Berenguer until he was declared to be of age in 1044.   [1
