ABD AR-RAHMAN V (Arabic : عبد الرحمن الخامس) was
Caliph of Córdoba .
In the agony of the
Umayyad dynasty in the
Al-Andalus (Moorish Iberia
), two princes of the house were proclaimed
Caliph of Córdoba for a
very short time, ABD-AR-RAHMAN IV Mortada (1017), and ABD-AR-RAHMAN V
Mostadir (1023–1024). Both were the mere puppets of factions, who
deserted them at once.
Abd-ar-Rahman IV was murdered the same year he
was proclaimed at
Cadiz , in flight from a battle in which he had been
deserted by his supporters.
Abd-ar-Rahman V was proclaimed caliph in
December 1023 at Córdoba , and murdered in January 1024 by a mob of
unemployed workmen, headed by one of his own cousins.
