    WOTW - BONUS EP 3 - PART 3 - Komnenian Restoration and the Rise of Saladin

    The First Crusade was a spectacular success for the Christian armies. During this time the Byzantine Empire entered a golden age known as the Komnenian Restoration. However, with the fall of Edessa in 1144, the Islamic world begins to coalesce. Zengi and his son Nur ad Din create a powerful state. But despite their successes, they would be overshadowed by and even more powerful sultan - Saladin.

    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.

History You Never Heard

I can’t stop listening to these podcasts. They’re all so interestingly done. And I’m a senior history buff - I can’t believe I never heard anything about the Islamic culture being as far west as Spain and France for 700 years! All we ever hear/heard otherwise is about that being the Dark Ages. Keep up the great work. I’m already recommending that my friends listen to these also.
