B The series of wars by Spanish Catholics to take Hispania from the Moors

More than 700 years of wars ended in 1492 with Ferdinand and Isabella’s victory in Granada. The Alhambra was the first place the flag of the Reconquista was raised. While under Moorish rule people of various religions had lived mostly in concert, the next few decades would bring the Spanish Inquisition, when all Jews and Muslims were either forcibly converted to Catholicism or were expelled from Spain.
