Chapter Summary

Sancho de Grañón episcopate, which lasted until own death in August 1116, coincided with the most serious political crisis to affect Christian Iberia during the first half of the twelfth century. This was sparked by the death at the Battle of Uclés on June 24, 1108, of the Infante Sancho, the only male heir of the ageing and ailing Alfonso VI, which left the king's eldest legitimate daughter, Urraca, first in line to the Throne of Leon-Castile. Sancho de Grañón died on August 1, 1116, and was succeeded as Bishop of Calahorra by Sancho de Funes. Under Sancho de Funes, the Bishopric of Calahorra developed in two very different and almost entirely unconnected ways. However, both of these areas of development were inextricably linked to the function of the see within the riojan frontier politics of the Kingdoms of Aragon and Leon-Castile.
