Don't give up

In 722, things looked completely hopeless in Spain. The Moors had invaded and conquered everything worth having. There was one man, Pelayo, king of a ten mile kingdom in the Cantabrian Mountains with some 300 men and their families. When the Muslims came for them it surely seemed hopeless but there was a miracle. The Moors were driven back.  King Pelayo and his people would long be in their graves by the time Queen Isabella her husband finally drove the Moors out of Spain 700 years later but it was the beginning.
