  1. That title is wrong. It wasnt spain back then, it was hispania under tge visigoths. Spain is later when christians rule over it after the muslims.

  2. When saying that European countries were living in dark ages in the Middle Ages, Spain and Portugal "Andalusia" did not live in the same situation, but were on another level because of this battle.
