Al-Hakam I

Al-Hakam I

Al-Hakam Ibn Hisham Ibn Abd-ar-Rahman I ( _ar. الحكم بن هشام) was Umayyad Emir of Cordoba from 796 until 822 in the Al-Andalus (Moorish Iberia).

During his reign he crushed a rebellion led by clerics in a suburb called "al-Ribad" on the south bank of the Guadalquivir river. He punished the inhabitants by exiling them by ship. They eventually reached Alexandria and dominated the city until 827, after which they were expelled. They sailed on to Crete, where they founded an independent emirate that survived until the Byzantine reconquest in 961.
