  Taifa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-30)
The Spanish and Portuguese term taifa (from Arabic Arabic: طائفة‎ ta'ifa, plural طوائف tawa'if) in the history of Iberia refers to an independent Muslim-ruled principality, an emirate or petty kingdom, of which a number formed in Spain (Arabic: "Al-Andalus") after the final collapse of the Umayyad Caliphate of Córdoba in 1031.
The origins of the taifas must be sought in the administrative division of the Ummayad Caliphate of Córdoba, as well in the ethnic division of the elite of this state, divided among Arabs (a powerful but tiny minority), Berbers, Iberian Muslims (known as Muladíes) and Eastern European former slaves.
There was a second period when taifas arose, toward the middle of the 12th century, when the Almoravid rulers were in decline.

The term taifa in the history of Iberia refers to an Islamic independent city-state with its supporting surrounding region, an emirate or petty kingdom, of which a number formed in Al-Andalus after the final collapse of the Umayyad caliphate of Córdoba in 1031.
There was a second period when taifas arose, toward the middle of the 12th century, when the Almoravid rulers were in decline.

 Taifa Information
The term taifa in the history of Iberia refers to an independent Muslim-ruled principality, an emirate or petty kingdom, of which a number formed in Spain (Arabic: "Al-Andalus") after the final collapse of the Umayyad Caliphate of Córdoba in 1031.

Reversing the trend of the Ummayad period, when the Christian kingdoms of the north often had to pay tribute to the Caliph, after the disintegration of the Caliphate the divided Muslim kingdoms were much weaker than their Christian counterparts, particularly the Castilian-Leonese monarchy, and had to submit to them, paying tributes known as parias.
