The availability of information on the Internet continues to wow me. There is no substantial information on Wiki about the Battle of Fraga. But low and behold, there was a whole essay by F.M. Warren, a notable medieval historian of the early 20th century.

Why do I care? My heroine’s father died there in 1134 during the Reconquista in Spain.
The question I’m most often asked as a writer is: Where to do I get my ideas? My answer is always from history. The Battle of Fraga is an example of great material for the writer. When I learned several years ago about the Civil War battle of Old Men and Young Boys (there were actually), how could not write ANYBODY’S HERO, a middle grade novel about it?
