Abdur Rahman II

Birth:792

Death:852

The ruler of Spain from 822 to 852 and a patron of music and astronomy. Towards the end of his reign Arab culture, literature, language and customs had so impressed the Christians that they had become Arabicised if not Islamised. Conscious of their inferiority in art, science, philosophy and literature, they began to ape the Muslims and were given the title of Mozarabs.
