[MID] First Contact: Moors in Hispania

description:
1297 years and 4 days earlier, on April 29, 711, Tariq ibn Ziyad (Taric the One Eyed) swept into Visigothic Hispania. After his Berber armies arrived at Gibraltar, the Iberian Peninsula would never be the same again.

The influences brought by Tariq and his men would resonate through the Middle Ages and Renaissance, making this area a crossroads of music, literature, and social practices.
