The Battle of the Nobles
The Battle of the Nobles (Arabic: غزوة الأشراف, Ghazwat al-Ashraf) was a decisive confrontation in the Berber Revolt in c. 740 CE. It resulted in a major Berber victory over the Arabs near Tangier.
During the battle, numerous Arab aristocrats were slaughtered. Thus, the battle became known as "Battle of the Nobles". Khalid bin Humayd al-Zanati led the revolting Berber soldiers in the battle.
