He was the prototype of the knight and a loyal vassal who took part with his king, Alphonse VI, in the conquest of Toledo. Subsequently, El Cid conquered the city, and kingdom of Valencia (which he ruled until his death in 1099) from the Arabians (Moors). El Cid Campeador was a great war hero, a superior and extremely successful soldier of fortune, who apparently never lost a battle.
