The details


Aboazar Lovesendes (died after 978) was a lord (domno) in the County of Portugal in the Kingdom of León in the middle decades of the tenth century. He is the ancestor of the lords of Maia.

Aboazar is the subject of a traditional heroic tale, the Miragaia. This legend would make him progeny of the romantic liaison between Ramiro II of León and the daughter of a local Muslim lord, though his patronymic shows that his father must instead have been named Leodesindo (Lovesendo). He has sometimes been erroneously named Aboazar Ramírez on the basis of the legend. According to the legend in its late medieval form, he was nicknamed Cide (from Arabic sayyid, lord), a common nickname in the tenth century and one he may actually have borne.


Aboazar married Unisco Godins, founder of Santo Tirso Monastery, by whom he had the following children:

  • Lovesendo Aboazar, documented in 999, married a daughter of Egica Honoriques;
  • Ermigio Aboazar, married to Vivili Trutesendes;
  • Ausenda, probably married to Piniolo
  • Cid Aboazar

On 9 June 1092, the heirs of Aboazar's children executed an agreement in favor of the Monastery of Santo Tirso promising that they and their descendants would continue to be its patrons, that they would not sell, donate or bequeath the monastery and that it would always be governed by its abbots under the Rule of Saint Benedict.
