Alcácer Quibir[edit]

The inclusion of Alcácer Quibir (4 August 1578) in this battle list of the Reconquista has not been explained, but its exclusion must be. Why include Alcácer Quibir in this list when the accepted historiography applies the notion of Reconquista to the period ranging between the first known battle between Christian and Muslims in the Iberian Peninsula (Covadonga, 718) and the final conquest of the last Muslim state in the Peninsula, Granada, on 2 January 1492? Should there be a wider notion of Reconquista, then the conquests of Ceuta (1415), Alcácer Cegeur (1458), Tangiers and Arzila (1471), and so many more cities, should also be mentioned, but that would require defining which conflicts to include, or otherwise we could go on and on until the Battle of Ifni in 1958 between the Spanish and Morocco, or even to the conflict concernbing Perejil in 2003.

Legends and size[edit]

This template may get very large...

And do legendary battles like Clavijo and Calatañazor belong?

What about the reconquest of France? Tours, Narbonne, Toulouse, the River Berre, Avignon, and Nîmes?
