comment How did Richard I sail through the strait of Gibraltar?
Interesting! I knew it was never as simple as backward Arabs :) Regarding the conquest of Silves, I'm not familiar about the naval tactics or sailing in general, but how did that help the sailing of the Strait of Gibraltar? Looking at the map, looks like the Northern Iberia were already at Christian hands anyway, so what were the big difference between Lisbon and Silves?

comment Duchy and Electorate of Saxony during the Schmalkaldic War
