Notes

Abstract: This thesis consists of a literary and historical look at the life and times of Rodrigo Diaz, the successful Castilian warrior who became known to history as El Cid. Throughout the years there has been much controversy over whether he deserves his designation as Spain's national hero, or whether he was merely just a ruthless mercenary whose exploits have become enshrined in the cloak of legend. This work takes a middle approach, attempting to show that he did adhere to a moral code even if he was not the Crusading nationalist that some historians have made him out to be. The introduction shows that El Cid was a man of his times, yet he was also one who was faithful to his lord, despite the growing rifts between them. The fictional narrative presents two views of him, one as the peninsula's potential liberator, the other as its subjugator. Finally, the various appendices furnish historical information about what daily life was like in eleventh century Spain.
