A.D. 1177. THE CLAni OP THE KINO OF NAVARRE. 447 Icy of Oliocastro, Cingovilas, Monte Negro, and Sierra Alba, as far as Agreda. To all the above he lays claim, and whatever places lie within these districts on the side of Navarre, and he lays claim to the entire revenues of this district, from the period of the death of king Sancho at Penafiel. All the above, as belonging to his kingdom, Garsias, king of Navarre and Nagara, great-great grandfather of the said kiug Saneho, held and enjoyed in peace and quietness ; and his great grandfather was expelled by violence from his kingdom, on account of his imbecility, by Alphonso, king of Castille, his kinsman.
