Teumi, invited the brothers Arouj and Khair-ed-Din (Barbarossa) to expel the Spaniards.
Arouj came to Algiers, caused Selim to be assassinated, and seized the town.
Khaired-Din, succeeding Arouj, drove the Spaniards from the Penon (1530) and was the founder of the pashalik, afterwards deylik, of Algeria.
In 1518 the town was held for a short time by Arouj Barbarossa, but Arouj was killed in a fight with the Spaniards.
It is said that, while master of the town, Arouj caused twentytwo of the Zeiyan princes to be drowned in the sahrij.
BARBAROSSA ("Redbeard"), the name given by the Christians to a family of Turkish admirals and sea rovers of the 16th century, - Arouj and Khizr (alias Khair-ed-Din) and Hassan the son of Khair-ed-Din.
As late as 1840, Captain Walsin Esterhazy, author of a history of the Turkish rule in Africa, ventured the guess that "Barbarossa" was simply a mispronunciation of Bala Arouj, and the supposition has been widely accepted.
But the prefix Bfiba was not applied to Arouj by contemporaries.
He was a coasting trader and skipper, and had four sons - Elias, Isaak, Arouj and Khizr, all said to have been born after 1482.
Elias and Arouj took to sea roving.
In an action with a galley of the Knights of Saint John, then established at Rhodes, Elias was killed and Arouj taken prisoner; the latter was ransomed by a Turkish pasha and returned to the sea.
Arouj and Khair-ed-Din joined the exiled Moors of Granada in raids on the Spanish coast.
They attempted in 512 to take Bougie from the Spaniards, but were beaten off, and Arouj lost an arm, shattered by an arquebus shot.
In 1518 Arouj was drawn away to take part in a civil war in Tlemcen.
The rival party then called in the Spaniards, by whom Arouj was expelled and slain while fleeing at the Rio Salado.
Two Turkish corsairs, Arouj and his brother, Khair-ed-Din (otherwise known as Barbarossa), at first established in the island of Jerba and afterwards at Jijelli, disputed with the Spaniards the dominion of the country.
Arouj seized Algiers (1516); Khair-ed-Din, succeeding him in 1518, did homage for his conquest to the sultan at Constantinople, who named him beylerbey and sent him soldiers (1519).
The fort built by Arouj Barbarossa, elder brother of Khair-ed-Din, was completely destroyed by the French.
It passed into the possession of the rulers of Tlemcen and was captured by Arouj Barbarossa in 1516, and became part of his brother Khair-ed-Din's kingdom.
