Throughout history many nations have suffered a physical defeat, but that has never marked the end of a nation. But when a nation has become the victim of a psychological defeat, then that marks the end of a nation.

—Ibn Khaldun- Arabic Historian who visited Muslim Granada.

The Emirate of Cordoba is a country in southern Iberia. It is ruled by the Berber Almoravids. Cordoba came to existence after the collapse of Spain in 12??.


Cordoba has existed in previous forms as the First Emirate of Cordoba, the Caliphate of Cordoba, the Almoravid nation, and most recently as the Second Emirate of Cordoba. When the Spanish nations collapsed, the Almoravids invaded Iberia from Morocco, taking advantage of the chaos. Seville and Cordoba fell quickly due to poor defense, but the Siege of Valencia lasted nearly a whole year. The city fell after the death of the last claimant to the crown of Aragon. The Muslim reconquest ended two years later after the Almoravids were thrown back at Toledo by the newly reforged Castile.
