    WOTW - 11 - Part 3 - Reconquista The Last Kingdom of Islam - The Golden Age

    The story of the Reconquista continues into the time of Muhammad V who ruled over Nasrid Granada during her Golden Age. To the north, Muhammad's friend and ally, Peter I of Castile, would be engaged in a series of wars that would affect nearly all the major contestants of Western Europe. While Granada enjoyed prosperity, Castile would be consumed by a massive civil war that would bring about a new dynasty. One that was destined to impact not just the politics of the Iberian peninsula, but the whole world.

Superb Podcast.

Remarkably well researched and presented. This makes the accounts of human conflict and the personalities involved really come alive with a voice of great clarity which make the listening a treat and not a chore.
