About Adosinda, reina de Asturias




From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adosinda was the queen of Asturias during the reign of her husband, Silo, from 774 to 783. She was a daughter of Alfonso I and Ermesinda, daughter of the first Asturian king, Pelayo. She was a sister of Fruela I.

Her husband probably succeeded to the throne by election because he was related by marriage to both of the previous ruling families. Some scholars have even posited a matrilineal succession. Anyway, she gave Silo no heir and, upon his death, her nephew Alfonso II was proclaimed king. He was expelled form the realm by Mauregatus and Adosinda was put in the monastery of San Juan de Pravia, in her husband's capital, on 26 November 783. She probably died in the monastery.
