The Taifa of Santa Maria do Algarve (Arabic: شنتمرية الغرب) was a medieval taifa kingdom or emirate, in what is now southern Portugal, that existed from 1018 to 1051. From 1051 until 1091 it was under the forcible control of Seville, by Abbad II al-Mu'tadid. Known as the Banu Harun, their descendants remained as Qadis of the city until its reconquest by Portugal in 1249, the last of whom being Aloandro Ben Bekar.
