The site of Cuenca, Spain, was first occupied by Muslim Arabs in the eighth century who fortified a location between the Júcar and Huécar rivers that became known as Ḳūnka. The fort was ceded by means of treaty to Alfonso VI of León and Castile in 1080. By the thirteenth century, Cuenca was part of the kingdom of Alfonso X.
