1) You have to be a Catholic or leave the Iberian Peninsula!
3) Then we shall burn you at the stake if you refuse!
The Reconquista was an important series of wars to take back the Iberian Peninsula. Christian rulers slowly chipped away land from the Muslim Kingdom but quickened after the the Umayyad Caliphate in Cordoba broke up rival kingdoms in 1002. Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand used the Inquisition against Muslims and Jews to become Catholics, many people were also burned at the stake under their rule if they secretly performed their old religion.

Many Christians were affected by the crusades, manly because of the wars and also from disease or infection that come from the wounds like Sepsis which gives fever, faster heartbeat and faster breathing. There was also a heavy change in economy because the Crusaders had to trade for needed supplies, they learned about new foods and goods which can change the way of life.
2) Yes! We need it for the Crusaders!
Muslims gained many things from the Crusades, they learned new weapons and new techniques in their military. Muslim Merchants also earned a lot of money from trade in Europe and that was used to fund for public projects like schools and new mosques for praying. Crusades also bought political changes as they were forced to work together to fight a common foe.
