  • The conquest of Toledo by King Alfonso VI. of Castile in May 1085 is the occasion for a cry for help from al-Mutamids of Seville and other rulers of small Taifa empires in al-Andalus to the North African Berbers . The Almoravids Rulers Yusuf ibn Tashfin then sets from Morocco to Andalusia over and marched with his troops to the north.
  • October 23rd : In the battle of Zallaqa the Castilian army suffers Alfonso VI. a heavy defeat against the Moors. After the battle, the Almoravids have a tower built from the skulls of the fallen Christians. Yusuf ibn Tashfin then retires to his capital Marrakech, as his heir to the throne has died and he has to defend the claims of his dynasty. The Castilians therefore do not suffer any significant loss of territory. The defeat, however, permanently weakens the power of Castile and temporarily ends its expansion and the Reconquista . The Almoravids, on the other hand, begin annexing the weakened Taifa empires.
