Two GIANTS : Same Era : Different Countries

If there has ALWAYS been such a long and historical and insoluble divide between Christian and Muslim, why does the 11th century MS History give us TWO giant figures who were close to both sides?

Haraldr Sigurðarson and Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar.

Harald Hardradr I have dealt with already. Norwegian. Varangian. Closely connected to the Abbasid Caliphate.

Rodrigo is better known under his Arabic name El Cid.

Were these just strange incidences?

I think not!
