Taifa of Murcia

The Taifa of Lorca (Arabic: طائفة لورقة‎) was a medieval Islamic Moorish taifa kingdom centered in what is now southern Spain.

The taifa was founded in 1042, when Lorca declared its independence from the emirate of Valencia. Its first governor was Ma'n Ibn Sumadih, with its power base extending from the city to Jaén and Baza.

In 1228, the Lorca taifa was reestablished after the fall of the Almoravid dynasty. It lasted until around 1250, when it was conquered by the taifa of Murcia.
