Spain is known as the Ancient Pit Stop. In Spain people can trade stuff to get things in return. These trade stops are also places to repair boats before sailing off. Trade was such a big idea of ancient Spain. The Celtas later became know as the Celtiberos. The Celtiberos come to invade Spain for the fertile land and wonderful climate.
In 1492 the last Moorish king defeated. All Muslims remaining in Spain were forced to leave or convert to Christianity. In 1502: given the success against the Muslims, it is now decided that all Jews need to leave Spain or convert to Christianity.

More Bourbon Troubles!!! Fernando VII dies without a male heir, leaving only his daughter, Isabel. The country is divided on the issue of a woman ruler. Supporters of Fernando’s brother, Carlos, face off against more liberal supporters of several “Guerras Carlistas." Isabel II reigns from 1833-1868. Isabel II rules through political turmoil, with the Carlists continually opposing her authority. The “Glorious Revolution” removes Isabel II from power in 1868. A short-lived experiment places King Amadeo de Saboya, an Italian, on the throne from 1870-1873. The First Spanish Republic is proclaimed in 1873. It ends in 1874.
