• Web Reference: Borrell II, conde de Barcelona.
Borrell II (died 993) was Count of Barcelona, Girona, and Ausona from 945 and Count of Urgell from 948. Borrell is first seen acting as count during the reign of his father Marquis Sunyer in 945 at the consecration of the nunnery church of Sant Pere de les Puelles in Barcelona, and succeeded Sunyer along with his brother Miró I in 947, while in 948 he inherited Urgell from his uncle Sunifred II. In 967 he married Ledgarda, who based on the names given her children is speculated to have been daughter of a Count of Toulouse or Rouergue. By her Borrell had two sons and two daughters: Ramon Borrell, Ermengol, Ermengarda and Richilda. After his wife's death circa 986 he married Eimeruda of Auvergne in 987.

The Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium names (in order) "Borellus, Ermengaudus et Miro" as the three sons of "Sunyer", specifying that "Borrellus filius Suniarii comitis Urgelli" succeeded his cousin "Seniofredus" in Barcelona [Gesta Comitum Barcinonensium I, RHGF IX, p. 69]. His parentage is confirmed by the charter dated 23 Nov 934 under which "Suniarius…comes et Marchio" donated property to the church of Girona, for the souls of "patri meo Wifredi quondam, vel fratri meo Wifredi quondam…vel filio meo Borrello" [Merino, A. (1819) España Sagrada Tomo XLIII (Madrid), XVII, p. 400].

Borrel married Ledgarde in 968. (Ledgarde was born about 945 and died after 16 Apr 980.)
