The engagement between infanta Urraca of Leon and Count Don Raimundo brought important repercussions throughout the territory ruled by the imperator Alfonso VI. The young couple went to take charge of the government in a conflict zone, Galicia, where the praeparatio of both for the royal office was finally given. In this practice of power as royal representatives, an institution of the royal house of León, the young couple began to acquire existential elements that allowed them to either plan alfonsin succession, in the case of Count Raimundo, or in the case of Doña Urraca, to legitimately assume as heiress and owner of the imperium legionense. Especially in the study of the diplomat of Alfonso VI as in the intitulatio of the condal pair we find the best signs and traces of that trajectory that followed the regal spouses.
