The origin of the word is uncertain. Some of them say that it proceeds of arabic Al-mugavar, other of Al-mukhavir or gava

They were shepherds (Pyrinnes of Aragon, Navarra, Catalonia)and when the Arabs invaded his territories there transformed in professional mercenaries during 13 and 14 century. And served christians kings. They realized numerous military campaigns for the whole Mediterranean one and I manage to them to think that they were invincibles. Always they were accompanied by your wives and childrens.
