Bakr Ben Yahia I was possibly a son of Yahia Ben Yahi III and the father of Yahia Ben Bakr. He was, apparently, the first of his branch of the family to become a Christian and thus a Mozarab (Iberian Christian living under Muslim domination), since his father was still and always a Jew and his son was always mentioned as being a Christian.[1]

Bakr Ben Yahia's greatgrandson, Aloandro Ben Bekar, Governor of Faro, would see his daughter Madragana become a mistress to king Afonso III of Portugal, and ancestor, amongst many other, of Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz (daughter of Princess Elizabeth Albertine of Saxe-Hildburghausen), queen consort of George III of the United Kingdom (and grandmother of Queen Victoria, and the great-great-great-great grandmother of the current Queen of the United Kingdom, Queen Elizabeth II).
