Oruç Reis (also called Barbarossa or Redbeard) (Turkish: Aruj or Oruç Reis, Arabic: , Spanish: Arrudye; c. 1474 1518) was a Turkish privateer and Ottoman Bey (Governor) of Algiers and Beylerbey (Chief Governor) of the West Mediterranean. He was born on the Ottoman island of Midilli (Lesbos in today's Greece) and was killed in a battle with the Spaniards at Tlemcen in Ottoman-controlled Algeria. He became known as Baba Aruj or Baba Oruç (Father Aruj) when he transported large numbers of Mudéjar refugees from Spain to North Africa; he was known through folk etymology in Europe as Barbarossa (which meant "redbeard" in Italian).
