      The Mongols never conquered Spain, The Mongols only reached as far as Eastern Europe.

    Yeah, they are basically a bunch of Arabs. Just don't tell that to a Spaniard. They will want to kill you.

    Moors are North African Arab-Berbers. Nothing about the Moors were Black. You only have to look at the historical images they were all Muslim Berbers & Arabs who conquered the Iberian Peninsula in 711.

    The Moors were (like north Africans in general) caucasoid, not nègroid. I just want to put that obvious fact out there before I begin. I've been to Spain and can say emphatically that the majority of Spaniards are white. There are a few non-whites like there are a few non-whites in every white nation. That can be explained by the slave trade and immigration.

    African Arabs did conquer Hispania. Both the Muslims and Catholics are allowed cross marry if someone converts

    but I don't know how much that impacted their gene pool

    Update @John - Catholics are absolutely allowed cross marry if the intended spouse converted. We know this happened during the Reconquista, it's documented.

      Not true. Christians were enslaved in Hispania by the Muslims. The Muslims occupied Spain for 800 years. Cross Marriages weren't allowed by the Catholics. The Spanish peopel tried to rid themselves of the Muslim occupiers for 800 years.
