General Notes for Child `abd Al-Rahman III Al-Nasir Emir Of Cordoba

Declared himself Caliph in 929.

In 929 Abd-ar-Rahman III established the caliphate of C r d o b a, and thecity reached a peak of p rosperity, rival i n g Da ma scus and Baghdad in itsbrilliance and intellect u a l activ ity . The mate rial well-being of Crdobadeclin e d af ter th e earl y 11th century as Muslim rule in Spain di sint e grated , but i t remained a center of literatur e an d scho larship . Inthe 12 th century the philos opher s Aver roÃ
Accession as amir.

'Abd ar-Rahman succeeded his grandfather 'Abd Alla h a s a m i r of Córdoba inOctober 912 at the a ge of 21 . Becau s e o f hi s intelligence and characterhe had bee n the obvi ou s fa vouri te of his g randfather, who had de signatedhi m he ir pr esumpt ive in preference to the othe r royal prin ce s . Inapp earanc e he is described as havin g been light- ski nned, hand some,th ickset, and short-le g ged. He appear ed t o be very s hort whe n he walkedbut w as imposing on ho rseba ck.

Public homage was paid to him in Córdoba immediatel y a f t e r his accession.He set about at onc e and with gr ea t en er g y to restore the authority ofCórdoba in Spain --a n auth ori t y that had be en curtailed during the latt erye ars o f th e re ign of his grandfather by a host of re bel s entr e nche d inmo untain forts throughout the land . Te n days af ter hi s access ion he hadthe head of th e f irs t rebel exhi bited i n Córdoba . Thereafter, for a sco reo r so of years , he led a lmost ann u al expeditions aga ins t the rebels,fi rst in sout hern and l ater in centra l an d eastern Spain.

His greatest enemy was a crypto-Christian rebel, 'U m a r i b n Hafsun, lordof Bobastro. 'Abd ar-R ahman's stra te g y wa s o ne of continuous harassmentof Ibn Hafsun's fo rt s . Begin nin g with the ca mpaign of Monteleón, 'Abdar -Rah ma n captur ed 7 0 forts in the provinces of Elvira, G ranad a , and Jaén- -al l of which had been directly or in direct l y controlled b y Ib nHafsun. In 913 Seville wa s c apture d , followed by Alg ecira s, Rayyu,Sidonia, and Carm ona. Wh e n Ibn Hafsun died i n 917 , t he rebellioncollaps ed. Hi s ch ildren were capture d or ki lled, and the centr e of th erebe llion , Bobastro, wa s finall y stormed in 92 8. In 93 3 Tole do fell aftera bitte r siege, a nd, with i t s fall , the las t Muslim centre of re sistancet o Córdo ban hegemo ny disappe ared.

Campaigns against the Christians.

Meanwhile, 'Abd ar-Rahman also had to check threats f r o m t h e Christiannorth. The main dange r came from th e Ki ng do m o f Leon. An expeditioncommanded by Ordoño II , the n va ssa l ki ng of Gal icia and later king ofLeon, i nto Mu sli m terr itor y in the summer of 913, especially h is sac k o f Evora ( Talav era) and the massacre of its Mus lim pop ulatio n, produ cedwid espread resentment i n Musli m Spain . 'Abd a r-Rahma n decide d tocounterattack, whic h he bega n in earne st in 92 0, lea di ng the campaign ofM uez in per son. He cap tured th e forts o f Osma and San Es teban de Go rmazan d the n inflict ed a crush ing defeat o n the combine d armies of L eon andNav arre at Val dejunque r a on July 26 , 920. Four ye ars later , in the sprin go f 924, he led ano ther campaign i nto Navar r e and sacke d t he capital, Pamp lona. With thes e two campai gns, 'Ab d ar-Rahm an was abl e to secur e hisfr ontiers wit h Chris tian Spain fo r the n ext seven years. Bu t the nextki ng o f Leon, Ramir o I I, w ho ascended the thro ne in 932, pr o ved aformidable adver s ary and began immedia tely to m ou n t attacks againstMusl i m territory. The encou nter betwe en t he two rulers final ly t ook place in 939, wh en, at t he so-c alled ditch of Si manca s (Shant Mankus), Ra mirose verely def eated th e Musl ims, an d 'Abd ar-Rahman na rrow ly escaped wi thhis life. A fter tha t defeat 'Abd ar-Ra hm a n resolved nev er to takep ersonal cha rge of another e x pedition. The Chris tian vict ory, however , was not foll owe d up. When Ramiro di ed in 9 50 and civil wa r broke ou t int he Christian territ o ries , 'Abd ar-Rahman ma de goo d his e arlier losses sothor ough ly that in 958 Sancho , e xiled ki n g of Leon, Garcia Sá nc hez, kingof Navarre, a n d his moth er, Queen Toda, all pa i d personal homa ge t o 'Abd ar-Rahma n in Córdoba.

In North Africa the policy of 'Abd ar-Rahman was dire c t e d a gainst theFatimids in al-Qayrawa n (now in moder n T un is ia) . In order to check theircontrol over North A fric a h e f inan ced rebel lions against them and sentnava l exp edit ion s to s ack the coastal cities. The city of C euta w a sfo rtif ied i n 931 as a base of operations in No rth Afr ica. T owar d the e ndof his reign, howeve r, Fatim id powe r increa sed , and th e Fatimid generalJawhar was a ble to r epulse th e al lies o f ' Abd ar-Rahman. The strug glewith t he Fatimid s, ho wever , was inconclusive and wa s to contin ueth rougho ut th e 10t h century.

As a result of his early successes, and probably a t h i s o w n suggestion,some of his court poet s urged 'Ab d ar -R ahm a n to adopt the title ofcaliph. He assumed tha t dig nit y i n 9 29, shortly a fter the fall ofBobastro, a nd cho se t he h onor ific title an-Nasir li-Din Allah (H e WhoFigh t s V ictor iousl y for the Religion of God). Hi s reasons w er e,internal ly, t o enhance his prestige an d , externally , t o counter t heFati mid claim to this honou r.

Significance.

The consolidation of power brought great prosperity t o M u s l im Spain--oneindication of which w as his buildi n g o f a m in t where pure gold and silvercoins were struc k . 'Ab d ar-R ahm an was als o a great builder; he renovat ed and ad ded con side rably to the Great Mosque at Córdob a an d t o t he royal palac e. At vast expense he built a n ew ro ya l city, Madina t az-Za hra', tohouse his hou sehol d an d gov ernment. He kep t a ver y strict control overth e affa irs o f state and his c ivil s e rvice, changing hi s govern orsfre quently to avoid t he growt h of local dyna sties. I n 949 h e ex ecuted hisown s on for co nspiring ag ainst him.


Christian and Jewish communities flourished during hi s t o l e rant reign.His fame spread so fa r beyond his dom ain s t h a t Córdoba by the end of hisreign enjoyed almos t a s muc h f am e as Const antinople in the Mediterraneanw orld . In C órdo b a he received emissaries from such dist ant ru le rs a s Ott o I of Germany and the Byzantine emper or.
