Description

Rodrigo Diaz was one of countless warlords in 11th century Spain. Why, then, was an epic film starring Charlton Heston made about the man known as El Cid? Why is he Spain's national hero and why is his statue in New York? M.J. Trow peals back layers of legend to reveal the real man and the icon he has become.
