Better known as Abderramán III, he was the eighth and last7 independent emir (912-929) and the first8 Umayyad caliph of Córdoba (929-961). Hispano-Arab mestizo as he was the son of the captive Muzna or Muzayna (Rain or Cloud), 9 the Caliph Abderramán lived seventy years and reigned fifty.10 He founded the palatine city of Medina Azahara, whose splendor is still proverbial, and led the Cordovan emirate of nadir to the caliphal splendor. He devoted much of his reign to finish subduing the territory of the emirate, torn by numerous rebellions, through a mixture of persuasion, perks and force.
Of him his courtier Ibn Abd Rabbihi said that “the union of the State was redone, from him he plucked the veils of darkness. The kingdom that was destroyed was repaired, its bases were firm and secure (…) With its light the country dawned. Corruption and disorder ended after a time when hypocrisy ruled, after reigning rebels and stubborn. Under his rule, Córdoba became a true beacon of civilization and culture.
