How did the Reconquista Actually Happen?
While many people are aware of Iberia’s religious history including the infamous Spanish Inquisitions, not so many are aware that neither Spain nor Portugal was always controlled by Christian Europeans. In fact, there was a period of almost 8 centuries that marked a tireless power struggle between the Christian Kingdoms and Muslim Caliphates.

Random fun fact: by the later stages of reconquista, the christian kings started to REALLY get into chess and other board games like backgammon and after the fall of Granada, under the Catholic Monarchy, chess was reinvented to add the Queen as the most powerful piece, letting bishops move as far as they wanted, and started using the game for dating

We can see that they were dominating the Mediterranean even during the 1300 with the Italian states and the kingdom of Aragon. They even send an small force of 6000 Spanish almogavares to fight against the Ottoman Turks in Anatolia under the command of Roger de flor. They absolutely bamboolezed the Ottoman Turks in every battle while being outnembered by the Turks. But sadly they got betrayed by the byzantines. The Iberians would continue on in humiliating the Ottoman Turks in many other areas. Completely dominating the Turks in the Indian ocean and the Mediterranean including the Atlantic. Indeed the Ottoman Turks were so scared of the fierce of the Iberian warriors that they had nightmares for centuries about them coming to their lands and taking their daughters such as in la jornada de Túnez 1535 and the battle of Lepanto 1571.

Muslim Granada was valuable economically to the Iberian Christian kingdoms so they let it survive, until the Ottoman conquest of the Eastern Roman Empire tipped the power balance in the Mediterranean in favor of the Muslims. The Iberian Christians were afraid of losing their gains to the Muslims reinvigorated by the Ottomans, so they decided to remove the chance that Muslim Granada would become a toehold on the peninsula for the Ottomans. The 200 years of Granada's survival after the fall of Seville ended under this geopolitical circumstance, which caused the Iberian Christian monarchs to become "more religious" as the narrative says. The final conquest of Granada proved to be strategically necessary for the Iberian Christians since the Ottomans soon after became a big naval power and took over most of muslim North Africa, took Greek and Adriatic islands from the Venetians, Rhodes from the Knights, and laid siege to Malta at the doorsteps of Italy.

Yeah. There are old (medieval) *churches* in Iberia with images and statuettes depicting various "positions" of sexual intercourse for the peasantry to learn from. Back then they were dead serious with the repopulation effort. I remember the time I'm discussing with my friend about current demographic crisis in East Asia (Japan & South Korea) and the world in general. He said that demographic decline is irreversible and Japan will lose like half of its current population by 2100. I said to him, while that might be true, the general trend itself is NOT actually irreversible. There are instances, including in medieval Spain, which a society was able to reinvigorate their population growth thru concerted effort (not to mention we have the technology to actually breed humans with "science" now). Something similar has been recorded elsewhere, including in China (the growth during Song Dynasty), India, and the Middle East. IIRC there is passage in the Bible about how the tribes of Israel repopulate Canaan (modern Israel, Palestine, and Trans-Jordan region).

Catalonia was a region including several lordships and counties, not a kingdom. After the decay of the Frankish Carolingian rule in the Hispanic March, the County of Barcelona was the preeminent power in the region. The dynastic union resulting from the marriage of the Princess of Aragon and the Count of Barcelona, Ramon Berenguer IV, resulted into the Crown of Aragon. Later it included the kingdoms of Valencia and Majorca, as well as the italian kingdoms of Naples, Sicily and Sardinia until 1714.

Portugal does not have these problems because they do not directly border Morocco and migrants prefer to move to richer countries in Europe or stay in Spain.

it is worth mentioning that the shadow cast by British colonialism has often overshadowed the contributions of both Spain and Portugal. The British Empire's historical narrative has been dominant, emphasizing their own achievements while downplaying the accomplishments of other nations. This biased rewriting of history has unfortunately diminished the recognition that Portugal and Spain rightfully deserve. A great example would be the bias in Hollywood movies, particularly those about pirates and corsairs, often omits the significant contributions and roles played by Spain and Portugal during s.XVI-XVIII. Instead, the focus tends to be on English and French figures, perpetuating the notion that they were the primary players in maritime history.

A perfect example is in the actual video. Everyone knows about the Spanish inquisition because it was this evil thing they did, and it'd constantly brought up, but ignoring the reconquista because that would portray the Spanish ie a European group ie Westerners ie White people as victims of non White aggression and that does not fit in with the progressive/woke/sjw narrative of the Westerners always being the aggressors and non whites the victims.

1:20 The kingdom of Aquitaine foreshadows Occitania. Because feudalism, Aquitaine was divided in many principalities: the Frankish kings took advantage of this division to annex Occitanie (formerly: Aquitaine) piece by piece to their domain between 1213 (annexation of the county of Auvergne) and 1860 (annexation of the county of Nice). The core of present-day France is therefore the agglomeration of the kingdom of the Franks with the former kingdom of Aquitaine, and even Brittany, because Brittany also lost its independence in 1532.

Fun Fact: Pope Sylvester II, originally known as Gerbert of Aurillac, used to study in Cordoba after he joined the delegation dispatched by Count Borell II of Barcelona to Caliph al-Hakam II of Cordoba. There, he was introduced to Greek philosophy, mathematics and astronomy and encountered the Mozarab bishops and judges who dressed in Arabic clothing. And when he became the Pope, he most likely tried to promote the knowledge he learned from his time in Cordoba and also attempted to stop such practices like simony. But instead, he was accused of learning sorcery from the Devil. And so, the first attempt of Renaissance failed. Someone like him deserved a movie of his own. Why? Not only because he is the first Pope of French origin but also because he is a humanist before the Renaissance was even a thing. Edit: I do not know if Gerbert actually met the famous Islamic scholars such as al-Zahwari and Lubna during his time in Cordoba or not.

Most of the times christians were fighting christians and muslims were fighting muslims. You can see that with the creation of Portugal that actually integrated the islamic golden age into it's own golden age after finally controlling the entire territory as we know it today. So it was a clash and mixing of cultures until the best of the best got out on top to take leadership in the world for the next centuries.

Covadonga is a pretty amazing piece of real estate. Pretty much in the middle or close enough within the Picos de Europa. We visited there just a couple of years ago. I read that the Muslims were coming back from an area in France and Pelagius became aware of this and also set a trap - knowingly, to take their plunder - and the trap and conquest of the returning Muslims with their own same idea of plundering worked, for Pelagius. Covadonga means cave of the spring, deep cave, or the more accepted cave of the lady, to which there is a small church within a cave within a mountain there. Beautiful to see. Have a café con leche with some cheese and bread on the top of the mountain and see the lakes there also. Even the Church leaders did not realize this battle was the "start" or first battle of the Reconquista until a couple of centuries later.

Sevilla was for instance the biggest city in the continent.

Around 200 years later, the counties(not all of them) were annexed to the Kingdom by marriage between the Queen of Aragon and the Count of Barcelona. An agreement was made stating that the Count (A foreigner of lower rank) would never be the king of Aragon but the future son of the couple.

Granada fell in 1492. Isabela had told Columbus that after the city fell, she would finance his trip. Boabdil did not stay in the city. He negotiated a small principality in southern Spain, a good bit of cash, and or course his personal safety. And he left the city of Granada to the Ghristians. Granada is a beautiful city. It's where the Alhambra palace is. It was very much the Las Vegas of Spain. As Boabdil and his entourage left, they crossed a hill. Boabdil looked back and shed a tear. His mother said to him "do not cry like a woman over what you could not defend like a man."

There are a few thing bad in this video. -The "infamous" Spanish inquisition started in 1492, after the reconquista was finished. It's estimated there were 1000 executions (in the whole empire 31M pop, not just Spain) between 1530-1630 and 250 between 1630 and 1730. While in Germany (with less population 16M pop, and in a short period) executed 2500. All of this AFTER the reconquista -Catalonia was not a Kingdom, they not were even united at all, they were a group of independent counties. -Asturias was not an independent or different Kingdom, it's the succesor of the Visigoth Kingdom, the ones who exile from the rest of the peninsula seek shelter there -The kingdom of Portugal appears from the Kingdom of Galicia (that later was annexed by Leon), not from Leon -The Catholic Kings invaded Granada cause the new Emir refuse to keep the payments not just for "intolerance".

It wasnt until the marriage of the queen Petronilla of Aragon with Berenguer, Count of Barcelona (and posterior promotion to principality) that we will see the birth of the Crown of Aragon. With all due respect, i think you guys should have investigated more about the topic.

The county of barcelona was more powerful than the kingdom of aragon ruled by petronila a 13 year old. Berenguer married her to effectively take control of Aragon and get the jure recognition,however in reality the catalan counties had been defacto independant for quite a while (they even had their own separate laws that were kept functioning in the principality of catalonia as a successor to what was a group of counties until the 17th century, in an equal relationship to the kingdom of aragon and the kingdom of valencia as part of the crown of aragon). This is a nomenclature issue more than real power or geopolitical relevance. The principality of monaco is independent without being a kingdom in the same way the catalan counties including the barcelona one were. An entity doesnt necessarily need to be a kingdom for a piece of land to be considered its own state. Catalonia itself might be incorrect at that time (although however in the crown of aragon the catalan counties were known as the principality or catalonia) but in a map it is easier to write that than specify all the different small counties that definition would need to include. Spanish nationalists always try to disregard catalan history all based in a pedophile relationship between Ramon Berenguer and Petronila of aragon, a 13 year old, a good, strong historic claim!

@@octavicolom4562 Yeah. So as i said, the ´´Kingdom of Catalonia´´ didnt exist as the video says. However, i agree with you, Barcelona being the center of power of the Crown is the reason why catalan became the court language of Aragon and the only one to expand, and not aragonese. I didnt mention any of the actual separatist/independence movement because both catalans and spanish get triggered so easily.

the thing is that in a sort of way iberian christian kingdoms had always been very devoted and the cultures of Iberian Visigothic origin kinda gave away a huge sense of religious responsibility onto the christian iberian cultures, and cultures like Castillian Aragonesse and galacian were not only heavily influenced by christianity but chatolisism itself, and unlike muslims this huge cultural-religion hybridization helped not only maintain huge devotion towards the catholic church but also maintain huge amounts of order and identity within the catholic cultures, wich was the complete opposite of muslim iberian cultures, wich were very divided by the many branches of islam that existed in the kingdoms for many years, this mostly didn't help unite the lands unlike christian kingdoms, also is worth noticing that spanish(christian) identity on its own is very strong and this can be seen in divergent hybrid cultures of Spanish culture from the new world (Mexican, Argentinian, Chilean, Colombian, Dominican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, etc..) many of this cultures even thought have huge masses of populations today with different religious backgrounds most of this ones weather are mostly of native descent or more european descent still have huge masses of christian-culture hybridization having many holidays and many other religious catholic practices stil being practiced by every religious group this because of how strong the relation between Catholicism and Spanish culture is and can be seen in divergent cultures, another thing worth focusing is that cultures like dominican where they had been under control and more influence by spanish colonist the percentage of catholics is arround 57 and evangelist are 25 and the rest have no religion thats an insane percentage of christians where compared to countries like chile wich have similar population only 48% is catholic showing how a little bit more of time and control in influence from spanish culture can heavily influence a region about cristianity i mean the most catholic continent in the world is America (South and Central America along Caribbean for Gringos) this due to the iberian influence of portuguese and spanish showing that really the most devoted of european cultures are christian iberian ones.

Spanish Christians were far from unified. The victory of Asturias was a bee sting the Ummayad behemoth. And many of the Christians that layer emerged, Leon, Castile, Navarre, Aragon, Portugal spent many centuries trying to outmanuever each other land disputes, saying, assassination, incitement of revellion, and somes even outright war. It wasn't till later they unified under a crusader banner. That didn’t stop them from appeasing or vassalixong Muslim lords and enlisting their soldiers among Christian tanks.

The "Marca Hispanica" was created by the Carolingian empire (the Francs), which became later the kingdom of Aragon and the Catalonian counties. There was an agreement between the Asturian king Alfonso II and Charlemagne's son (Ludovicus Pius) through embassies sent to Toulouse in 795 and 798 by the Asturian king.

@SmokingLaddy 9 ай бұрын
I call bullshit. If your g-g-grandfather was one of the invading moors then each generation would have had to have a child at over 106 years old, successively 5 generation in a row. That is assuming your g-g-grandad was 16 when the reconquista ended, and that you are 16 today. 531 years would actually be around 21 generations, I am 31 and my g-g-grandfather was born in the late 1800s, not late 1400s.

It is politically incorrect to talk about Christians and Muslims since we are talking about colonizing occupiers and the anti-colonizing anti-imperialist resistance of Iberian natives, so it is politically correct to talk about occupiers and natives, occupation and resistance, colonization and liberation.

I always wonder, why do the English speak of the "infamous" Spanish Inquisition when, in fact, it was the least infamous. With historical records in hand, it was the least deadly in all of Europe. The truth is simple - there has always been a hatred towards Spain, and the Black Legend is there to tell the story.

"Reconsquista" is concept from 19th and 20th century Spanish historiography that it's under great discussion nowadays. Most of the nowadays Medievalist reject the idea, as a 19th and 20th century nationalistic projection to a medieval past. The truth is that Iberian Middle Ages are much more complex than a unified Christian push towards the unification of the peninsula. And as a side note, Navarre should have much more importance in those maps, these are especially incorrect around the year 1000s. - From a Iberia medievalist.

La razón de que Isabel y Fernando no fueran tan tolerantes con el reino de Granada se debió a que unas décadas antes Constantinopla había caído bajo el Imperio Otomano y ahora un nuevo califa aspiraba a dominar todo el Mediterráneo y a extenderse por Europa, era y fue durante el siguiente siglo la mayor amenaza para los reyes de España, en ese contexto creyeron que no era seguro tener un reino musulmán en la península que pudiera servir de cabeza de playa y posterior base para una eventual invasión. Realmente muy poca gente celebra la fecha de la toma de Granada fuera de la propia Granada, la fecha quedó oculta para mucha gente porque el mismo año que concluyó la campaña militar Colón llegó a América por primera vez .
