The Battle of Consuegra was a battle of the Spanish Reconquista fought on August 15, 1097 near the village of Consuegra in the province of Castile-La Mancha between the Castilian and Leonese army of Alfonso VI and the Almoravids under Yusuf ibn Tashfin. The battle soon turned into Almoravid victory and the son of El Cid, Diego Rodríguez, perished. Alfonso with some Leónese retreated into the castle of Consuegra, which was besieged for eight days until the Almoravids withdraw to the south.
