Reconquista

From IBWiki

Historical period between the years 719 and 1492 AD, in which the Spanish kingdoms fought the Moors (and themselves) after the Moorish invasion of Al-Andalus and the final defeat of the Kingdom of Granada.

At the time of the Reconquista, it looked to lead to a Unification of the Iberian Peninsula and an end to the rivalries of Castile and Leon and Aragon. This was not to be, as Isabel and Ferdinand quickly fell to odds and their proposed marriage was sundered.
