Al-Andalus, also known as Muslim Spain or Islamic Iberia, was a medieval Islamic state occupying at its peak most of what are today Spain and Portugal. (At its greatest geographical extent, in the eighth century, southern France -- Septimania -- was briefly under its control.) The name more generally describes parts of the Iberian Peninsula governed by Muslims (given the generic name of Moors) at various times between 711 and 1492, though the boundaries changed constantly as the Reconquista progressed.
This category deals with both the historical period and the geographical descriptor of Al-Andalus. It refers to time and places of the Muslim Umayyad Caliphate entry and conquest of the Iberian Peninsula in 711 CE, through the Moorish era dynasties and Reconquista conflicts, to the end of last Islamic kingdom in Spain, the Emirate of Granada, in 1492.
