      ********************************************

      Galindo Azn‚arez II (died 922) was Count of Arag‚on (893-922), the son and successor of Aznar Gal‚indez II.

      Galindo was one of a coalition that sponsored the 905 coup d'‚etat in Pamplona in favor of his brother-in-law, Sancho I of Pamplona. However, he turned on this new king and in 911 attacked him in concert with brother-in-law Muhammad al-Tawil and Abd Allah ibn Lubb ibn Qasi. This coalition was defeated, al-Tawil killed, and Galindo forced to become vassal of Sancho.

      Galindo was married twice. By his first wife, Acibella Garc‚es of Gascony, daughter of Count Garc‚ia II S‚anchez of Gascony, he had sons Miro and Bishop Redemtus, along with daughter Toda, wife of Hunifred Bernat, count of Ribagorza, to whom she brought Sobrarbe. By his second wife, Sancha Garc‚es of Pamplona, daughter of Garc‚ia Jim‚enez and sister of Sancho I, he had Velasquita and Andregota Gal‚indez, who married Garc‚ia Sanchez, king of Pamplona (925-970). He also sired several illegitimate sons: Guntoslo, Sancho, Belasco, Banzo, and Aznar. The first of these, Guntoslo, is apparently the man of this name who would later be count of Aragon, but only as a fully subservient vassal of his brother-in-law the king of Pamplona.
