When El Cid died in Valencia in July 1099, he was the most famous person in Spain. This study, set against the background of Spanish political and social life, traces the life story of the fanatical Catholic nationalist who was dedicated to the re-conquest of Spain from the Moors. Richard Fletcher has also written the historical study, "The Life and Time of Diego Gelmirez".
