Background

Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar was a Castillian nobleman and military leader in medieval Spain. The Moors called him El Cid, which meant the Lord (probably from the original Arabic al-Sayyid, السَّيِّد). In 1904, after the fall of Valentia, El Cid established an independent principality on the Mediterranean coast of Spain. He ruled over a pluralist society with the popular support of Christians and Muslims alike. The figure of El Cid has been the source for many literary works, beginning with the Canter del Mio Cid, an epic poem from the 12th century which gives a partly-fictionalized account of his life. This poem, along with similar later works such as the Mocedades de Rodrigo, contributed to portray El Cid as a chivalric hero of the Reconquista, making him a legendary figure in Spain.
