Biography of the Cid:

1043 - Born in Vivar, near Burgos, Castile. A Castilian military leader and national hero.

His popular name, El Cid (from Spanish Arabic al-s+d, “lord”), dates from his lifetime. 1065 -  When Sancho succeeded to the Castilian throne, the Cid nominated the 22-year-old Cid as his standard-bearer (armiger regis), or commander of the royal troops.

1067 - the Cid accompanied Sancho on a campaign against the important Moorish kingdom of Zaragoza (Saragossa) and played a leading role in the negotiations that made its king, al-Muqtadir, a tributary of the Castilian crown. 1072 - the Cid played a prominent part in Sancho's successful campaigns against Alfonso and so found himself in an awkward situation, when the childless Sancho was killed while besieging Zamora, leaving the dethroned Alfonso as his only possible heir.
