Raymond Of Burgundy
Raymond of Burgundy (c. 1070 – 24 May 1107) was the ruler of Galicia from about 1090 until his death. He was the fourth son of Count William I of Burgundy and Stephanie. He married Urraca, future queen of León, and was the father of the future emperor Alfonso VII. When Raymond and his cousin, Henry of Burgundy, first arrived in Spain is uncertain, but it probably was with the army of Duke Odo I of Burgundy in 1086. In April 1087, the army abandoned the siege of Tudela. While most of the army returned home, Odo and his retinue went west. By 21 July 1087 they were probably at Burgos, at the court of King Alfonso VI of León and Castile, and by 5 August he was in the capital city of León. There Odo most likely arranged Raymond's marriage to Alfonso's heiress, Urraca

Raymond Of Aguilers
Raymond of Aguilers (French Raymond d'Aguilers, Latin
Latin
Raimundus de Aguilers or de Agiles) was a chronicler of the First Crusade (1096-1099). During the campaign he became the chaplain of Raymond IV of Toulouse, the leader of the Provençal army of crusaders. His chronicle, entitled Historia Francorum qui ceperunt Iherusalem, ends with the events immediately following the capture of Jerusalem. He was educated as a clerk in a monastery of Vézelay. At the beginning of the Crusade he was probably part of the group following the papal legate, Adhemar of Le Puy, who was the bishop of the cathedral church at which Raymond served as canon. The Historia Francorum was written soon after the end of the First Crusade, certainly before the end of 1101. All biographic traces of Raymond are lost after the Battle of Ascalon
