The Islamic Moors overran Spain and occupied and ruled most of it for the next 3 centuries. They got their chance to do this when the Spanish king was foolish enough to force himself on one of the Queen's ladies, who happened to be the daughter of the Governor of the Spanish fort in North Africa that guarded the only easy crossing from Africa to Spain. When the father did not get any 'satisfaction' from the King for the assault on his daughter, he simply let the Moors through at their next attempt.

Only in the 15th century would the last vestiges of Moorish rule be removed.
