    • Det skyldtes fremfor alt Spania, som i begynnelsen av 1492 tvang maurerne i kne for godt og forviste det muslimske lederskapet fra Granada og Alhambra. Plutselig, etter et avbrekk på nærmere 700 år, var Spania igjen et forent, kristent kongedømme og kunne innta sin plass blant Europas store nasjoner.
      It occurred above all in Spain, as at the beginning of 1492 the Moors were forced to their knees for good, and the Moslem leadership banished from Granada and Alhambra. Suddenly, after a break of nearly 700 years, Spain was again a united Christian kingdom and could take its place amongst Europe's great nations.
