1. Originally a Hittite and Phrygian goddess, Cybele (Κυβέλη), was a deification of the Earth Mother.
10. Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar (c. 1040, Vivar, near Burgos – July 10, 1099, Valencia), known as El Cid Campeador, was a Castilian nobleman, a gifted military leader and diplomat who, after being exiled, conquered and governed the city of Valencia. Rodrigo Díaz was educated in the royal court of Castile and became the alférez, or chief general, of Alfonso VI, and his most valuable asset in the fight against the Moors.
The name “El Cid” comes from the Spanish article El, and the dialectal Arab word سيد sïdi or sayyid, which means “Lord”. The title Campeador comes from campidoctor, a vulgar Latin word roughly meaning “master of military arts”, so El Cid Campeador translates as “The lord, master of military arts”. He is considered the national hero of Spain.

I only know those, sorry! I hope I helped some, though! 🙂
