Alfonso VII King of Castile claimed sovereignty over many recent Aragonese conquests and obliged King Ramiro to accept Castilian suzerainty.In an attempt to safeguard his position, Ramiro arranged the betrothal of his infant daughter Petronila to Ramn Berenguer IV Count of Barcelona, agreeing that the latter should inherit the Aragonese throne even if his daughter should die.

The family origin is not known, but it is supposed that the early counts were local chiefs who managed to impose their authority over their rivals.By the early 10th century, no further references to the French kings are found in Aragonese charters which refer exclusively to the reigns of the kings of Pamplona/Navarre who by that time presumably enjoyed suzerainty over the county of Aragon.The main religious centre of Aragon was the Benedictine monastery of San Pedro de Siresa, founded in the early ninth century, although the monastery of San Juan de la Pea became the most important Aragonese religious institution in the tenth century, a series of texts probably written shortly before 992 almost certainly in Navarre.In about [930], the Aragonese heiress Andregoto married Garca III King of Navarre.The couples descendants ruled both as kings of Navarre and counts of Aragon until the death of Sancho III "el Mayor" King of Navarre in 1035.Galindo Garca, shown above, on the basis of his patronymic.

However, the name Garca is not common among the known descendants of Aznar Galndez which suggests that his father may have been another Galindo.

This suggestion is corroborated by the dating clauses of the earliest Aragonese charters referring to the regnal years of the Carolingian kings/emperors.

By 867, the Frankish influence had started to wane, as shown by the charter of Siresa dated 867 which records regnante Karlo rege in Franza, Aldefoso filio Ardonis in Gallia Comata, Garsia Enneconis in Pampilona.

When King Sancho's territories were divided between his sons after he died, Aragon was elevated into a kingdom and awarded to Sancho's illegitimate son Ramiro, while the neighbouring counties of Sobrarbe and Ribagorza to the east of Aragon formed the fleeting kingdom which was granted to Ramiro's half-brother Gonzalo.

Subscription lists of charters dated to the early years of the Aragonese kingdom appear not to refer to seoros which lay outside the area of the original county, which suggests that the kingdom was not territorially more significant than its predecessor.

He also acquired land to the west of his kingdom which was formerly under the jurisdiction of the kingdom of Navarre.
