The Moors are a faction representing the Islamic Almoravid dynasty of southern Iberia and north-west Africa. They can field a good mix of light cavalry and infantry, and effective spears, but they lack in late period units.

The Moors (highlighted) on the ingame faction selection screen.

The Almoravid Berbers have risen from their homelands near the west coast of Africa to establish their capital in Marrakesh, and assume control of the Moorish Empire. Their dominance over this corner of Africa is absolute, and the sense of unity they have brought to the Moorish empire has once again restored order in southern Iberia. This move for stable Islamic rule is however also the cause of the greatest threat to the Moors... Christian unity.

Once weak, uncultured and disorganized, the kingdoms of Leon and Castile are now unified in their challenge against Islamic rule of the peninsula, and look set to actually launch a genuine offensive to revive their Reconquista. Their heroes such as El Cid are extremely admirable adversaries, as men who are driven with what they believe to be a noble purpose always are.
