Description

García Ramírez, sometimes García IV, V, VI or VII, called the Restorer (Spanish: el Restaurador), was Lord of Monzón and Logroño, and, from 1134, King of Navarre. He restored the independence of the Navarrese crown after 58 years of union with the Kingdom of Aragon.

His father, Ramiro Sánchez of Monzón, was son of Sancho Garcés, illegitimate son of García Sánchez III of Navarre and half-brother of Sancho IV. His mother Cristina was a daughter of Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, better known as El Cid.

García died on 21 November 1150 in Lorca, near Estella, and was buried in the cathedral of Santa María la Real in Pamplona. He was succeeded by his eldest son.
