Nekor (N'kor in the Berber language) is a town in the Rif of Morocco. It was the capital of the medieval Kingdom of Nekor, and was founded by Emir Idris ibn Salih between 749 and 761 AD, and became the capital in the reign of his son Sa'id I ibn Idris (the capital having previously been Temsaman.) It was sacked by the Vikings sometime between 859 and 862 AD, and destroyed by the Almoravid Yusuf ibn Tashfin in 1080 during his conquest of the Rif.
