Al-Mundhir (Arabic: المنذر ‎) (c. 842 – 888) was Emir of Córdoba from 886 to 888. He was a member of the Umayyad dynasty of Al-Andalus (Moorish Iberia), the son of Muhamad bin Abd al-Rahman.


Born in Córdoba, during the reign of his father he commanded the military operations against the neighbouring Christian kingdoms and the Muladi rebellions.

In 865 he led the partially failed campaign against King Ordoño I of Asturias, in the Duero valley. During his way back to Córdoba, he defeated at Burgos Rodrigo, count of Castile, pushing the Cordoban frontier nortwhards in Iberia. He also tried to conquer León, but he was defeated in 878 at Valdemora, by king Alfonso III of Asturias.

Al-Mundhir launched an expedition against the Banu Qasi Muladi family, who had allied with Alfonso III, but was also defeated in 883. The following year he was however able to expel the rebel emir Ibn Marwan from Badajoz.
