He was Abu Al-Qasim ibn Abbad ibn Muhammad, also knowed as Al-Mu'tamid, last Sultan of Sevilla from the Abbadid family.
Famous his poetry and his respect for christians, so much that his daughter left Islam for marry King Alfonso of Leon, who knows why, love? or power? or real believe on Christianity?
