About Atauil (Muhammad al-Tawil ibn Abd al-Malik) valí de Huesca
Muhammad al-Tawil was a muwallad Wāli of Huesca in the late-ninth and early-tenth centuries. Acting autonomously from his nominal masters the Emirs of Córdoba, he carried out his own foreign policy and warfare with both Christian and Muslim regional rivals, including the Counts of Barcelona, Pallars and Aragon, the King of Pamplona and the Banu Qasi of the Upper March. He gave rise to a short-lived dynasty, the Banu al-Tawil (Arabic: بنو الطويل), who would rule Huesca, Barbastro and Lleida, off and on, for a century, eventually losing out to the Banu Tujibi of Zaragoza.
Won power in Huesca, 887 since March, killing his nephew ibn Mas ud Amrus; the emir Abd Allah achieved after the formal appointment as governor of that region, extending also Barbitaniya. Married a daughter of Aznar II Galindez Wars of Aragon and the Pyrenees from the other counties. He died in a campaign against the plain of Barcelona, in October 913.
