Tordesillas appeared in some historic documents in the year 939, when Abderraman III conquered Zamora. He lost the battle of Simancas against Ramiro II de León, Fernán González (the first count in Castile) and García Sanchez I (King of Navarra) three months later. This battle took place in Simancas and Tordesillas on the 5th of August. Tordesillas avoided Arabic domination after this battle.

The village is dominated again by Arabians during the kingdom of Garcia I Fernández in 981, at the same time Almanzor encamps in Rueda, eight kilometres far from Tordesillas. Sancho García, Fernán González's grandson, liberates Tordesillas from the Arabic domination in 995. So Castile was under its dominion for almost three centuries.
