|This article is about the cavalry hero. For the infantry hero, see El Cid.|
- El Cid is the second hero in Age of Empires II who has two character models, after Joan of Arc. They are followed by Prithviraj in The Forgotten, Yodit in The African Kingdoms, and Le Loi in Rise of the Rajas.
- "Cid" derives from the dialectal Arabic word سيد Sîdi, meaning "Lord" or "Master", while "Campeador" is from Medieval Latin Campidoctor, "Master of the Field" or roughly "Outstanding Warrior". El Cid's actual nickname in life was "El Campeador" (which he was given around the Battle of Golpejera, and is used by contemporary Christian and Muslim sources alike), while Cid was a more generic term for battlefield commanders at the time.
