He used to be called the great, wise, admired doctor. He was born in Tudela under Muslim rule. He had to leave his homeland before 1140 with the punishment of the Jews for the problems between the Jews and the indigenous people, and he wandered around. North Africa, Egypt, Palestine, Italy, Southern France, Northern France and England had their stops while searching for a place to live.
The Abenezra Crater on the Moon is named after him. It is also based on Europe’s first explanation of chess rules.
