Countess Ermessenda of Carcassonne (972-1058) was closely linked to Girona Cathedral, especially because her brother Pere Roger was the Bishop. That is why she chose this space as her final resting place, and gave the chapter her seal as a sign of her trust in the cathedral. This seal is notable for showing the name of the Countess in both Latin and Arabic.
