ABD AR-RAHMAN V (Arabic : عبد الرحمن الخامس‎‎) was an Umayyad
Umayyad
Caliph of Córdoba .

In the agony of the Umayyad
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.
