Who is Maqil?

The Maqil are a collection of Arab Bedouin tribes of Yemeni origin who migrated westwards via Egypt during the 13th century. The Beni Hassan tribes claim to be descendants of Maqil, who was an arab once living in Tunisia. One of the largest Maqil tribes was the Beni Hassan, a tribe that came forward to form the ruling nomad warrior class in the Saharan regions of Mauritania and also in Western Sahara. They had a great cultural impact upon the ruled people. These tribes, ( Moors and Sahrawis) still speak Hassaniya, which is the Arabic dialect characteristic of the Beni Hassan tribes. Almost all of these tribes, after the war of Char Bouba (1644-74), consider themselves descendants of the Maqil. A few of the ancient Maqil tribes (such as the Oulad Delim, which is a subtribe of the Beni Hassan), still exist under their proper name in the area.
