The Reign of AlmanzorStreaming Video - 2008 | Spanish
Of all the historical figures from Spain's Islamic era, who casts the longest shadow? Many scholars point to Almanzor, or Al-Mansur-the general and statesman responsible for the zenith of Muslim power in the country. This program studies the Arab ruler's life and military career, examining sites that exhibit his legacy-such as the city of Al-Medina Al Zahara and the citadel at Almeria. As they explore the decades between the 930s and the dawn of the 11th century, viewers will learn about the culturally diverse alliance that supported Almanzor but ultimately helped to destabilize the Muslim regime.
