MUSLIM CONQUEST

MUSLIMS CONQUEST.
THE PROCESS TO CONQUERED A PART OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA WAS BETWEN THE 711 AND THE 720, IN THAT YEAR THEY HAD ALMOST THE CONTROLED OF ALL THE IBERIAN PENINSULA.
IN THE 711, THE VISIGOTH KING RODRIGO WAS DEFETED BY THE MUSLIMS IN THE BATTLE OF GUADALETE. THE VISIGOTHS WERE A POWERFULL GERMANIC TRIBE.

TROOPS COMMANDED BY TARIQ IBN ZIYAD HAD JUST CROSSED THE STRAIT OF GIBRALTAR AND HAD ARRIVED IN SOUTHERN SPAIN. IN LESS THAN 5 YEARS, THE MUSLIMS RULED MOST OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA, NOT JUST COMBAT. JUST RAN OUT TO CONQUER THE NORTH OF THE PENINSULA.
THEIR RELIGIOUS WAS CALLED ISLAM. PEOPLE WHO FOLLOW ISLAM BELAVE IN ONE GOD ALLAH AND MOHAMMED HIS PROPHET.MUSLIM HAVE SEVERAL OBLIGATION : THEY HAD TO PRAY 5 TIMES A DAY, FAST DURING THE MONTH OF RAMADAN, GIVE MONEY TO THE POOR AND MAKE A PILGRIMAGE TO MECA ONCE IN THEIR LIVES. THE MUSLIMS PRAY IN A MOSQUE.
IN THIS PHOTO THERE ARE SOME MUSLIMS PRAYING.

MOST OF THE PART OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA WAS OF THE MUSLIMS IT WAS CALLED
AL- ANDALUS.

THERE IS A PHOTO OF THE MAP OF THE MUSLIMS AND THE COUNTRY OF AL-ANDALUS
AL-ANDALUS IS THE NAME GIVEN TO THE TERRITORY OF THE MUSLIMS IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA AND RANGED FROM 711 UNTIL THE LATE FIFTEENTH CENTURY AND CAME TO UNDERSTAND MUCH OF TODAY´S SPANISH TERRITORY.
IN THE BATTLE OF LAS NAVAS DE TOLOSA 1212 THE MUSLIMS WERE DEFEATED TOOK PLACE.GRADUALLY, THE CHRISTIAN KINGS WERE RECONQUERING MOST OF AL-ANDALUS.THERE WAS ONLY ONE MUSLIM TERRITORY IN THE PENINSULA:THE KINGDOM OF GRANADA.
THE ISLAMIC PRESENCE IN THE IBERIAN PENINSULA LASTED UNTIL 1492, WHEN THE CATHOLIC KINGS CONQUERED THE KINGDOM OF GRANADA.
