He died in 1162 in Borgo San Dalmazzo, Piedmont, Italy, leaving the title of Count of Barcelona to his eldest son Ramon Berenguer, who next year inherited the title of King of Aragon from the abdication of his mother Petronilla of Aragon (Ramiro II was already dead). His name was changed to Alfonso as a nod to his Aragonese lineage, and he thus became Alfonso II of Aragon. Ramon Berenguer's younger son Pere (Peter) inherited the county of Cerdanya and lands north of the Pyrenees.
