Gibraltar: The Conquest of Iberia
Shariq Ali Khan (Author)
DescriptionGibraltar, the Conquest of Iberia is the story of the Moorish conquest of Spain around 711 AD. By the early 8th century AD Islam has spread out of Arabia into parts of China, India, Central- Asia and Africa. It rules much of the known world. In Hispania Roderick and his Visigoth hoards have burnt the land and violently seized power from the legitimate and just King Wittiza, who writes to his friend the Sultan of Damascus. A delegation of monks also arrives at the Sultan's palace after being turned away by Rome and Byzantine. The Sultan sends his best men under the General Tariq ibn Ziyad, the Conqueror of Iberia, a gifted leader and warrior, Hafiz-Scholar of the Koran and expert in mystical martial arts that he has learned at the palace from the riders of the silk-route. Along with him goes Imam Bilal Al-Din, a Malian scholar who has grown up as an orphan at the palace in Damascus alongside Tariq. They take with them the most skilled men from Arabian, African and Mediterranean tribes, the multi-racial foundation of the Moorish-Iberian community under Islam, that sail into Iberia numbering 5000 souls.
