Encyclopedia > Emirate of Badajoz

The Emirate of Badajoz was a small Moorish kingdom centred on the city of Badajoz which exists today as the second city of Extremadura, Spain. It rose, like the other Moorish kingdoms of Spain, after the fragmentation of Al-Andalus in the late 900s and early 1000s. It was invaded and conquered several times, variously by the neigbouring kindoms, the Almoravids and Almohads (along with many other Moorish kingdoms), Portugal and finally by Castilla, which went on to form modern Spain with Aragon. Badajoz, the capital of the Spanish province of Badajoz in the autonomous community of Extremadura, is situated close to the Portuguese frontier, on the left bank of the river Guadiana, and the Madrid-Lisbon railway. ...
