Brutal and ignorant that the Christian kings of Spain were, the collapse of Moorish Al-Andalus wasn't really down to them. Rather, it was the collapse of the Cordoba caliphate in the 11th century, and its disintegration into warring states (using deals with Christian kings and mercenaries) that allowed the Christians to eventually take over.
