Andalusian Mercenary Knight, The Almoravids, El Cid and the Reconquista, The Crusades
The Almoravids, also known as the Murabits, were a fundamentalist Islamic movement of the 11th and 12th Centuries. Founded by Ibn Yasin in southern Morocco, they combined devotion to Islam with a fierce military tradition, and a desire to conquer. In 1070, the Almoravids established their capital city at Marrakesh, which, at the time, was little more than a mosque in the desert surrounded by the tents of the faithful.
