Their capital and stronghold is believed to be near the city of Al Karak, which was known as the Qir of Moab.For a brief period of time, the territory came under Persian rule, and then the Nabateans took control of it, until the Romans invaded the Levant and occupied their capital, Petra; in the fourth century a Roman legion, the Legio IV Martia, had a headquarters fortress at Betthorus (now el-Lejjun) in Karak. Around 530 the Byzantine Empire established a vassal state ruled by the Ghassanids. The city of Mu'tah was the site of the first clash between the Muslim Arabs and the Byzantines at the Battle of Mu'tah in 629 AD.Add Karak Governorate and other destinations in Jordan to your travel plans using our Jordan trip itinerary builder site.
