According to legend, Diáz de Vivar (El Cid) fought for Alfonso against the Moors, fought for the Moors against Alfonso, and conquered the Kingdom of Valencia for himself; he ruled there until his death in 1099.

Even his title, El Cid Campeador, reflects his conflicting loyalities: "El Cid" is a Moorish title of respect, from Arabic al sayyid "Lord"; "Campeador" is Spanish for "Champion". To this day, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar is known as a hero of Christian Spain. El Cid was also a great war hero due to his excellent acheivements in the the Reconquest of Spain . El Cid was a superior and extremely successful soldier of fortune who apparently never lost a battle.
