Excerpt from Stories From the Chronicle of the Cid

Every nation has its hero or heroes, and the hero of the Spanish people is Rodrigo Diaz de Bivar, called El Seid or Cid (The Chief). He was a historic person who really lived and died in the eleventh century, when the provinces of Spain were under different rulers and the country was continually harassed by the Moors, who were not finally driven out until 1609.

About fifty years after the death of Ruy Diaz there was written a long poem called the Poema del Cid, telling of his great deeds as a leader against the Moors.

The other principal source of our knowledge of the Cid is a portion of a work called the Cronica Rimada, a history of Spain from the death of King Pelayo to Ferdinand the Great.
