A Citizen Of The Philippines

Religious policies were the next major factor that shaped the growth and power of Spain during Ferdinand and Isabella’s reign. Pendrill notes that “the greatest triumph of Ferdinand and Isabella was their ten year conquest of the Moorish kingdom of Granada.” This is due to the results of the conquest, which Pendrill argue's increased loyalty from the nobility who had previously undermined the monarchy, and it increased prestige in Europe; thus the conquest ”gave real impetus to the idea of Spanish Imperialism.” This fuelled messianic ferv...   [tags: revenue, politics, religion ]
