Abu Taur of Huesca
Abu Tawr, was a Muslim nobleman, a member of the Banu Salama clan (Arabic: بني سلمة). It has been suggested that he may be identical to Abu Tawr ibn Qasi, son of the eponymous ancestor of the powerful Muwallad Banu Qasis. At the imperial diet of Paderborn, he joined with Sulayman ibn Yaqdhan, the wali of Barcelona in an offer of their domains to Charlemagne in exchange for military aid in a new revolt against Emir Abd ar-Rahman I, with the aim of reinstating Abbasid power in Al-Andalus. After an unsuccessful assault on Zaragoza in 778 by the Frankish army, the alliance ended in failure with the defeat at Roncesvaux.
