Facts and Events
Sancho (1161–1223) was the count of Cerdanya from 1168, Provence from 1181 to 1185, and Roussillon from 1185. He was the youngest son of Count Raymond Berengar IV of Barcelona and Queen regnant Petronilla of Aragón.
In 1185, Alfonso dispossessed Sancho in order to make peace with the House of Toulouse. Nonetheless, Sancho continued to maintain the title of count of Roussillon. In 1209, his nephew King Peter II named him governor of Provence and lord of Languedoc. He was a regent for the young King James I.
Sometime before 1184, Sancho married Ermesinda of Rocabertí, daughter of Jofré of Rocabertí and Ermesinda de Vilademuls. In 1185, he married Sancha Núñez de Lara, daughter of Nuño Pérez de Lara and Teresa Fernández de Traba and step-daughter of Ferdinand II of León. By her he had one son, Nuño.
