Both Christians and Muslims fought in the 13th and 14th centuries for the control of Gibraltar. The struggle for the strategic Strait of Gibraltar is sometimes overlooked, but the Christian victory over the Moroccan Marinid dynasty was indispensable to prevent the revitalization of what remained of al-Andalus. Leading Medievalist historian Joseph F. O’Callaghan does a superb job in The Gibraltar Crusade narrating this struggle that was key to seal the fate of Islamic Spain.
