Abstract EN

After the fall of Granada in 1492, Spain began the colonization of America on the one hand, and continued its Reconquista by taking over multiple ports of the Algerian coast forcing the cities of Ténès, Mostaganem and Cherchell to pay tribute, on the other hand.

Spain also annexed several coastal towns : Mers el-Kebir in 1505, Oran in 1509 and Béjaïa in 1510.

The residents of Algiers appealed to the Barbarossa brothers to stop this expansion.

Arudj Barbarossa had already rescued thousands of Muslims fleeing the Spanish inquisition by transporting them to North Africa between 1504 and 1510.

Our article aims to identify the achievements of the Barbarossa brothers from the foundation of the Regency of Algiers in 1516 to the end of power of Kheir-Eddin in Algiers in 1533.

The Quincentenary of the creation of the Regency of Algiers is an opportunity to put the spotlight on the military contribution of the Barbarossa brothers, which reinforced the Regency facing the Spanish Reconquista projects.

The small town of Algiers was propelled to the rank of capital of the Regency and military stronghold of the Sublime Porte facing the hegemony of the Spanish Empire.

Thanks to the port it was provided, its fleet and its army, Algiers could then engage in its own defense against the European pillage of its coastal regions.

Between 1516 and 1830, Algiers which was called al Maḥrūssa "well-guarded", remained impregnable by the sea and gained a formidable international reputation that would last three centuries.
