Welcome to

I'm Rob Salzman (email: genealogy at
8630 SW Scholls Ferry Rd #133, Beaverton OR is my personal genealogy hobby site. The data contained here has been gathered through 20 years of genealogy. It contains everyone I know who are connected to European Royalty or Nobility. Some small part of it is my original research, but most of it has been generously shared with me!

It is important to understand: This is SPECULATIVE DATA. Most of it is unverified. Use it for hints and pointers, but DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH!!!

You can leave a comment on each page here. If you want to be notified when this site changes, you can leave contact information here. I can always be reached at the mailing address above, or by email at genealogy at  

I've added a changelog so you can see what's upcoming here.

This website updated on November 18, 2016.

Family Sheet
Name: Al Ma''mun Of Seville Born: Married: Died: 1090 at Cordoba Father: Abul-kasim Muhammad Be Abbad Al-mu''tamid Emir Of Seville Mother: I''tamid
Name: Zaida (isabella) Of Denia Note Born: 1075 at Denia, Spain Died: 12 Sep 1107 Other Spouses: King Alfonso Vi Alfonso Of Castile & Leon Father: Abul-kasim Muhammad Be Abbad Al-mu''tamid Emir Of Seville Mother: I''tamid

2). It may look like Zaida married her brother from this data! This is because of a conflict between sources on who she was. Sources in Morocco are convinced she was the daughter of the Emir. They claim that the Christians in Spain removed and altered records that indicated a Muslim ancestory for their Royal houses. The Emir was exiled in Morocco after being expelled from Spain, and it is claimed records from this time are still in Morocco. I leave it for future scholars to investigate. Others say she did not mother any children by Alfonso
