THOSE PICTURES NOT ONLY REFLECT THE MOORISH RULE IN
MEDIEVAL SPAIN [SEE THE MOORISH RULERS], BUT ALSO CRITICS
ON THE REMARK OF KATHRYN WARNER, THAT IT IS UNLIKELY,
THAT ISABELLA OF FRANCE [DAUGHTER TO KING PHILIP IV OF
FRANCE AND HIS WIFE JOAN I OF NAVARRE, AND WIFE OF THE ENGLISH KING
EDWARD II], COULD  POSSESS ”ARAB FEATURES”, DESPITE THE FACT, THAT HER MOTHER, QUEEN JOAN I OF NAVARRE, WAS PARTLY OF SPANISH’
DESCENT
THEREFORE PICTURES, WHICH REFLECT A PART OF THE FAMILY LINE OF THE SPANISH KINGS
AND THE MOORISH INFLUENCE
THE MOORISH RULE IN MEDIEVAL SPAIN/HOW THE MOORS BROUGHT
CIVILIZATION TO EUROPE
